    Hi there,

                I am creating master page in VS and after compiling the project, using it in SiteFinity CMS. The problem I am facing is I can’t change the content of Master page in CMS environment. Hence has to compile the application after changing master pages in VS and make a new release on server. I would like to know if there is any other easy workaround solution where no compilation is required.

    Hello ashish,

    You do not have to compile the website. You have to restart the IIS server or make a dummy change in the web.config which will result in application reset. You can also upload the master page through backend UI - Pages >> Templates

    So far so good. But to edit the master pages, my client need license of Visual Studio. Is there any way where I can use normal html pages as template instead of Master pages?

    Hello ashish,

    You can use only .master files. It is not  necessary to edit them through VS. VS Express is free and you can use it without a license, but actually this is not related to our product.

    Hi ashish,

    Sitefinity includes RadControl for ASP.NET AJAX that you can use for free in the context of the CMS, but you cannot use these controls in other applications.

    Hello ashish,

    All RadControls are compiled in Telerik.Web.UI.dll which is located in project’s bin folder. Each customer can register every RadControl using the web.config file – toolboxControls section. Below is a snippet of this section

      <toolboxControls>
        <clear />
     
        <add name="RadPanelBar" section="RadControls" type="Telerik.Web.UI.RadPanelBar, Telerik.Web.UI" />
     
        <add name="RadScheduler" section=”RadControls” type=”Telerik.Web.UI.RadScheduler, Telerik.Web.UI”/>
    </toolboxControls>

    Hello ashish,

    As far as I know this is a GenericContent based module and for these type of modules the data is mainly stored in sf_GCMetaData and sf_CmsTextContent. You can contact the publisher of the module to gather more detailed information about the implementation.

    Hi ashish,

    This error is saying that the browser is returned an empty page - no html. Please row back the changes you have made to this page to see adding what control breaks the page.

    Hello ashish,

    You can use GenericContent control with SharedContent inside it.

    Hi ashish,

    There is not a built-in module in Sitefinity. You can crate a custom one


    or consider using Mallsoft e- commerce solution

    Hi ashish,

    SessionDataSource is a sample control which is used in our online demos. The  purpose  of this control is saving the data into session  instead of a database table. SessionDataSource is used in the RadControls demos only for testing and demonstration  purposes. In real-life scenarios you should use  LinqDataSource, SqlDataSource etc.

    Hi ashish,

    You can add columns to the table through SQL Server Management Studio. Then you can use LINQ to query the tables you want by creatin  DataContext class.

    Hi ashish,

    You can take  a look at CreateWizardUser explains . The control is located under Sitefinity\UserControls\Login\CreateUserWizardControl.ascx. This is a user control, so you will be able to observe its code. Inside the template there is a ManageProfile control inside which template you can add more fields ( profile properties only).

    Hi ashish,

    Each image in a library is IContent item. You can get the name by using GetMetaData("Name") method of IContent object. Please take a look at Overview of Generic Content API

    Hi ashish,

    You can create a new metakey where you will enter the url, take a look at UserManual, page 214. Then you can use this link to open a new page. If you use Image Gallery control you can open the image in new window, but id depends on the mode you use. Generally you could override SetItemMetadata method from where you can access the "download link" that shows the image and set Target property.

    HyperLink downloadLink = itemContainer.FindControl("DownloadLink") as HyperLink;
