    is there a way to create a deep link to one of the advanced settings in sitefinity admin?

     in sitefinity 3.x it took maybe 3 clicks to upload a new usercontrol.  now it takes like 15 clicks to get all the way in to add a control.  my site is almost exclusively custom usercontrols, so i'm doing this ALL the time, and it got old the very first time.

    thanks!

    Agree -  takes too long!  Suggest you do what we do, open "App_Data\Sitefinity\ToolboxesConfig.config" and manually edit.

    There's no other hidden places or things to do... Just ToolboxesConfig... Takes only a few  seconds to register a UserControl using this way.

    Hello Will,

     Thanks for using Sitefinity.

    Please look into Sitefinity Thunder. It will allow you to register custom controls in 1 click.

    i use thunder, so that would be awesome!

    i don't see the register widget icon.

     i've attached screenshots of the thunder documentation vs what i see in vs2012.

    Hello Will,

    The register widget icon is located in the Solution Explorer. The screenshot which you gave is of the Sitefinity Explorer. You can also check this video for an example of a widget registration through Thunder.

    This video and many others as well as the documentation is now available through Thunder itself. All you need to do is open Thunder Start Page from the Visual Studio menu -> Telerik -> Sitefinity Thunder -> Thunder Start Page. You can also open it from the Sitefinity Explorer - it is the last icon which you can see in your screenshot. I would highly recommend checking it out for more information about Thunder. We are currently working on making pretty much all of Thunder's functionality available from there as well.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    All the best,
    Marin Atanasov

    Hey guys,
      Can you comment on the ability to deep link (as a concept)?  Like not registering toolbox widgets, but more like me needing to add sidebar items on a slow server...click....wait....click....wait....click...wait

    http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/stoimen-stoimenovs-blog/2012/08/30/filtering_dynamic_content_items_in_the_backend_grid_by_workflow_status

    Administration -> Advanced -> DynamicModules ->
    Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicTypes.Model.CustomModule.CustomContentType
    -> Views -> CustomContentTypebackendList -> Sidebar ->
    Sections -> Filters -> Items

    It'd be nice to give someone a link to there and\or bookmark it

    Hello Steve,

    The mentioned request is a valid one, we have had it as a PITS item for a while, you can track its status and vote for it here.

    sidetracking a bit here: Is PITS purchaseable as an  add-on for sitefinity? or is there an add-on that works like it/uservoice/etc?

    No it's not...and why would you want to burden your users with that horrible UI anyway! :)

    Teampulse feedback portal is their new standard I think: http://www.telerik.com/agile-project-management-tools/feedback-portal.aspx

    Otherwise you could create a sitefinity module builder custom type to just create your own feedback collection module.
