    Working on learning Module development and I ran into a snag, the sample here: Sample_books indicates we must register the module within web.config, but does not indicate what specifically needs to be registered, where to register (within the config), etc. I thought about possibly making toolbox controls for the individual ascx files within the <toolboxControls> section of web.config, but wanted to get clarification on where to put these declarations in web.config before I started messing with stuff.

    On another note, I had noticed in some documentation that module registration within the web.config should be going away soon. Is that a 4.0 feature, should we expect that before 4.0? I really hope module integration becomes a little simpler in 4.0 so that we can develop different plugins without web.config modification.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hi Sean Haddy,

    Could you take a look at the following two blog posts:

    In Sitefinity 4.0 we are aiming to eliminate all manual configurations that have to be done in the web.confing. We will introduce an Interface that will do this for you.

    Kind regards,

    I'm a bit frustrated here, I first began looking at this API information a few weeks ago.... as a few days ago I was told to read up on the new 'temporary' API documentation posted here: API Reference ....

    Which leads to this page

    This page references the module that I linked to yet, you linked me to yet another module....

    As a first time developer of Sitefinity, going from one documentation to the next, I can accept, but to continually be mulled toward something new that is not within the documentation is unacceptable in my opinion. A very bad experience so far for me.

    Hi Sean Haddy,

    As far as I see Rado has point you to the right direction in this thread. Also all "temporarily" articles are migrated to  Developer Manual (CHM, 12 MB) that you can download from http://www.sitefinity.com/support.aspx section Getting Started. I hope that this makes the situation more clear for you.
