    Hi Team,

    I searching a solution for limiting the amount of modules used by very a large solution. One way is use custom providers of GC Modules but i need to allow in the user interface in place of selector provider of control panel. How i can expose modules providers in Modules sections of Dashboard simulating a Module but using a custom provider of same module. I searching to obtain GenericModule - News - Lists - Provider1 - Provider2 where providers are a custom providers of News Module.

    Hi Pierre,

    The Dashboard is a static page inside the project - sitefinity/admin/Default.aspx

    You can add a repeater control with a HyperLink inside it and bind the providers you want to see to the Repeater control. Each manager has a property Providers that returns a Dictionary

    var provider = ContentManager.Providers;

    Each of your links should have a NavigateUrl which points to ~/Modules.aspx?DataProvider=Name of the provider

    Best wishes,
