    We are using the news letter functionality for one of our clients.
    It is almost exactly what we need except that we would like to call it something other than "Newsletter".
    Can this be done without resorting to coding against the API?
    Thanks

    Hi Stephen,

    You can found one solution in this topic. Works fine for others Modules like news, try for Newsletters.

    Thanks Pierre.
    Unfortunately that does not get us all the way there.
    Sitefinity externalizes some but not all strings.
    I can change the name of the module on the menu bar and I can change the text on some but not all newsletter objects.
    The ones that I could not change by editing resource files are clearly bound to the dll.
    It seems in fact that I have answered my own question.
    It isn't clear to me what the advantage of externalizing some but not all strings is.
    If someone has creative solution please post it.
    If Telerik is listening, I think that modules would be much more useful if all strings were externalized to resource files.

    Hi Stephen,

    We think that you are absolutely right. We will log this as a task and try to optimize the resource strings for the modules, so they could be easily changed when needed.
