    Telerik.News.NewsManager newsManager = new Telerik.News.NewsManager("News");  

            IList listOfNewsItems = newsManager.Content.GetContent("[CategoryName] ASC");

            if (listOfNewsItems.Count > 0)


                foreach (Telerik.Cms.Engine.IContent newsItem in listOfNewsItems)


                    Response.Write(newsItem.GetMetaData("Title") + "<br />");

                    Response.Write(newsItem.Content.ToString() + "<br /><br />");

                    Response.Write(newsItem.ThumbnailUrl.ToString() + "<br /><br />");



    "/09-09-17/News_Title_1.tmb.ashx" is returned as the new thumbnail? When it it is names news-thumb1.jpg?

    Any ideas?

    Hi Bloommedia,

    ThumbnailUrl property can be used only with IContent items from Images and Documents module. It cannot be used for News content Items. The property is defined under IContent interface and this is the reason why you see it. The News module supports "Thumbnail" metakey which can be accessed by GetMetaData method.

    All the best,
