    Hi,

    We have just buy your cms sitefinity 4.0 and this is my first question.

    When I go on your online documentation on this page: http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/user-guide/creating-and-uploading-content/using-the-content-modules/creating-and-editing-content-blocks/creating-a-content-block.aspx

    I can read how to create a content block but on my version 4.0sp1 I don't see this possibilty (please see printscreen at attachment)

    Where is the type of content for content block?

    Regards,
    /Michel

    Hello Michel,

    ContentBlock is  a widget and not type of content. It is actually a completely unstructured content that you can put anywhere on a page. Therefore, it is not located under the Content menu in Sitefinity.

    In order to use ContentBlock, please do following:

    1. Create a new page
    2. Open it in the page editor
    3. In the toolbar, under the "Content" section, locate the ContentBlock widget and drag it on the page (see attached screenshot).


    Kind regards,
    Ivan
