    It may just be me being dense, but I have struggled now for two weeks to build the basics of a pluggable module in vb. There are quite a lot of  posts/pages but no crisp how to document or vb project to start from. Has any one had a similar issue, or better got a good solution?

    Is this a custom module or are you starting it from the Generic Content module?

    Hi Charles,

    You can follow the instructions that we have for building pluggable modules using C#. The process is the same, however instead of creating C# code library projects you will create VB code library projects and translate the code in VB. You can check the bellow links:
    Sample modules:

    Many thanks for the replies. The key step that was stopping me was loading the embedded templates. I kept getting:

    Invalid resource name (Samples.Contacts.Resources.ControlTemplates.Backend.ContactsItemsList.ascx) for assembly (Sample.Contacts, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null) or empty template.

    For those who want to use VB rather than C# the solution is to set the references to the templates as

    RootNamespace.TemplateName.ascx, as the path is not needed by VB, it is with C#.

    This blog helped me in the end
