    Hi,

    I need to have a global replace tool in my SF5 website. 
    http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/georgichokov/posts/08-12-15/replacetool_-_globally_replace_everything_in_your_project_with_zero_efforts.aspx

    In this link, they have mentioned to add <tools> section in web.config.
    I don't know where in web.config I need to add this. Also, what all should be added here.
    Can anyone please tell.
    Thanks.

    The 'tools' concept of v3.x was extremely awkward and doesn't really apply in v4/5

    Instead, what you would likley be looking to implement is a custom backend page, onto which you install your UI and logic controls.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply. I have a doubt.
    After creating the ApplicationModule, anything needs to be added in web.config?
    When the module is created an entry came in System.Config
    <add title="Replace Tool" moduleId="00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000" type="ReplaceTool.ReplaceToolModule" startupType="OnApplicationStart" name="ReplaceTool" />

    Though a new menu item 'Replace Tool' is created under Content, nothing is coming. What should be done to correct this?
     Please reply.

    Thanks.
