    Hi,

    I have made a blank site in Sitefinity 4.0 Beta 2. I added a page (Default.aspx, and also its corresponding .cs file), to the Pages section in Configuration (or Administration, cannot remember), but when I "browse" to the site, the default page is shown (This site is under construction etc).

    Likewise, I added the same pages to the VS.NET solution and still have the same problem. Is there anything wrong with adding all the pages I want on my site to the VS.NET solution? Please let me know if so. Also, I browsed directly to the Default page (http://localhost:5761/xxx/Default.aspx) but got this error:

    Unable to connect

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:5761.

           
        *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
              moments.

        *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
              connection.

        *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
              that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

    How do I add my own page to be displayed on the site?

    Thanks

    Hi G S S,

    Sitefinity BETA 2 can work only with PageNodes created through "Pages" section of the CMS. External pages are not supported in this version.

    If you set a home page for your website you will not see the static Default.aspx anymore.

    Thanks for that. BTW, can I upgrade a Beta 2 project to the Final release version (when released)? So, to avoid downtime.

    Hello G S S,

    There will be built-in scripts that upgrade the project automatically ( similar to Upgrading from the Sitefinity 4.0 BETA1 to the BETA2)

    Best wishes,

    Hi,

    Does the RC release now support adding external pages (e.g. ASP.NET pages which exactly exist)?

    Thanks

    Hi G S S,

    We did not include external pages functionality in the RC. You can take a look at this discussion for some more information.
