    Removed RadControls from Widgets toolbar

    Why were these removed, and if I already was using them, will they still be there? I was using the RadToolTip one quite a bit.

    Hello,

    @Kristian - The RadControls toolbox sections is not completely removed. It is disabled from the configurations -> Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> Toolboxes -> PageControls -> RadControls toolbox section. You can enable it from simply setting the Enable checkbox in administration. This will not stop you using the RadControls within Sitefinity projects as we are not changing the way we ship the control suites with the CMS.

    @Duneel - Backend templates can be edited by going to Administration -> Backend Pages. When you are on the backend pages screen in the right side bar you will see Templates link which will take you the backend templates section. All backend pages use the same template. I think what you want to do is connected to editing the template for the news backend control.

    Radoslav,

    Would you recommend a full msi download at this point or just the project manager will do just fine?

    Hello Andrei,

    Depends on what you are aiming for. For development purposes I recommend that you use the MSI.

    We have some new documentation regarding the products sample module as well as a number of fixes in the sample code for modules. I would use the full MSI installation and let it upgrade my existing one. Since I use the Libraries folder as the store location for reference assemblies this will automatically update my reference assemblies and all I need to do is build my projects to so that they get the new binaries.

    Make sure you backup existing projects before you install the new SP.


    All the best,
    Radoslav Georgiev

    Radoslav,

    Will we still be getting weekly builds up to Q1? I am hoping to maybe get the shared content in one of the weekly builds before Q1 as I have to deliver this project by 29th/30th.

    Cheers,
    Andrei

    How can we tell if the SP took? I've applied it to a local copy--I think--but one of the major, major bugs I needed fixed and was told would be is not fixed, so I'm not sure if the SP is fully installed or not.

    the way I checked it was to go to the Bin directory of your WebApplication and check the version of the Telerik.Sitefinity.dll. If it shows 4.0.1210.0 then you are updated.

    Obviously you have done the upgrade first. Also, would give it a rebuild as well.

    cheers

    you can also view the source for your public website, there should be a meta tag that says something like

    <meta name="Generator" content="Sitefinity 4.0.1218.0 SE" />

    depending on your version.

    Previously, it was mentioned that SP1 would include support for standard ASP.NET Membership/Role providers.  I don't see that listed as one of the changes though.  Was this featured added to SP1 or not?

    Thanks,

    Is there any eta on being able to actually uninstall a module? I still don't see the point in allowing for easy installation of a module if it can't be uninstall too. I have a live site still waiting for a custom module that was promised to the customer but I can't add it because the site/database has a partially uninstalled module from the development process.

    Pretty pretty please? I'd look like much less of an idiot in my customer's eyes if I could finally get this resolved.

    Thanks!

    Is there any recommended upgrade path for current production sites? I know to backup the site and copy the new files on top of the current site in a test environment. But is it a straight copy of the empty project directory?

    Are there anyone encounter a problem with "Products Sample Module"?
    I've installed the module base on the guide which Sitefinity provided.  So module is showing under "Content" menu and able to create some sample products.  However, I got the "More than one item in the sequence." error when I drag and drop the "Products Widget" to the page.
    Could you please help?

    Hi Telerik,

    Would you please be able to confirm which release the URL Rewrite will be released in. Our Sitefinity 4 project is an upgrade on a standard ASP.NET website, therefore lots of the page URL's will change and we need to add 301 handlers for these scenarios.

    Thanks

    @John Tolar the recommended path for upgrade is the Project Manager regardless of the state of your live site. Take a look at this blog post: http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/joshmorales/posts/11-03-02/upgrading_sitefinity_4_websites.aspx for more information including how to use the project manager for existing sites.

    @Andrei if you are using a project with external assemblies those class libraries need to be updated to reference the new SP1 library. You can download the starter kits and update those references manually and recompile.

    Updated starter kits for the SP1 will be available soon.

    Hope this was helpful!

    Hi higgsy,

    URL Advanced Rewriter is not in our plans for this or the next quater. I have logged it to review by our business analysts. In the meanwhile, please, use an external tool to achieve the desired rewrites. 

    As to the module uninstall - we are planning a series of documentation articles on in the coming month. They will help give a better understanding of the whole  process. 


    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    I see that this issue was supposed to be fixed. The un-necessary message box
    that asks you "Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?..."

    I am still getting it in IE8, see attached. And not only when editing Templates but
    normal pages too. I do not get it in Firefox though.

    WHY??? Is IE getting so little support. I come across issues like this on regular basis
    which when I switch to Firefox or Chrome they disappear. Why is IE overlooked that much?
    Are this issues not tested on all browsers to see if they are fixed?

    I know that Firefox is better and all that, but I need it working properly on IE.

    Thanks,
    Andrei

    We upgraded to SF 4.0 SP1 in order to finally fix page names. Our old 3.7SP4 site had page names with the .aspx extensions and we have hundreds and hundreds of pages indexed this way in Google.

    After upgrading to SF4.0SP1 (build 1210) I am disappointed to still be receiving "The URL contains invalid symbols" error when changing the name of a page to "page.aspx".

    Is there something I'm doing wrong?
