    Is there any way a field can be created to allow a user to select a page internally and save it's Guid using module builder?

    E.g. I want to create custom content for a mega menu i'm building and was hoping to do this by using the module builder - to do so one of the fields on the module would need to link back to a created page.

    @Telerik

    Are there any plans to add a link field that would let you choose internal links and externen links like the linkmanager and save the urls?

    This would be very convenient.

    Hello,

    If I understand correct you want a page selector field available out of the box with modules created by Module Builder. Please note that you could create Page selector, Document Selector, Image selector, Video selector and Dynamic Content selector easily using our Thunder module. More information could be found in our documentation.

    Dear Stefania

    Yes 

    I often use Module Builder for rotating images and two things would be nice if they came out of the box.

    #1 is the PageSelector where you can choose links to external and internal pages
    #2 is the option to get an image URL easely in a widget designer
         (at the moment I create a code behind and extract it)

    Even though a lot of stuff can be easely done with thunder its still some work to be done on every project if you need it. Like addresses now comming out of the box the page (link) selector would be a nice addition.

    Will have a look at your link. Don't know if its the same with images that I would somehow try to get the URL out of it but I will give it a try next week.

    Thank's and have a good weekend.

    Hi Markus,

    I'd be happy to send you the project file and steps to get what you're after working - i implemented it into a recent project with the assistance of Telerik Support. It's not 100% perfect, but it does the job. 

    When i'm back at work (i'm currently off sick) i'll post a guide for you!

    Hi,

    In Sitefinity 6.3 you could create Page selector field for your dynamic module easily using our Thunder module. More information could be found in our documentation.

    In Sitefinity 7.0 there is an out of the box page selector field. You could create a related data field and be able to link your internal pages. With “Related Data” Custom fields, users can easily create associations between content in Sitefinity:

    • Relating to Dynamic Content Types
    • Relating to Pages
    • Relating to Static Content (News, Blogs, Blog Posts, etc.)

    For your convenience please review the following screenshot.

    Thanks Stefani. The documentation is stating about aray of guid while i needed a single url selector.I know about 7.0 supports page selector field out of the box but Because of still existence od some critical bug [image library order] I can't move to 7.0

    It could be very helpful if some one direct me to precisely 6.3 version example of single guid field selector for  url and how to integrate it in my application. What currently i have did is take a short text field in my dynamic module for future integration with page selector sort of field
