    Hi, I am trying to limit the content type of the category widget following the solution found here http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-4-x/general-discussions/categories-widget-limiting-to-existing-categories.aspx 

    I was able to get it working with default sitefinity content (images / blog etc) but cannot get my custom content type created by module builder to work with it. Entering Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicTypes.Model.Tests.Test in the Category ContentType field works in edit/preview mode however going to the page I get error saying The type or namespace name 'Tests' does not exist in the namespace 'Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicTypes.Model' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

    Is there a work around for this?

    hi jack, this is a known issue with the Category controls (Tags, Categories), I believe it will be fixed in the next 5.1 release.

    however, in the meantime, I created a quick temporary workaround: http://www.selarom.net/blog/2012/04/13/workaround-using-the-sitefinity-taxonomycontrol-with-custom-modules

    basically you create a custom widget class that inherits from taxonomy, and add a property to correctly map the dynamic types. Add this to the toolbox and use it anywhere you want to show taxonomy for custom module.

    Hope this is helpful!
