I am attempting to evaluate Sitefinity and not having much luck. I have the Standard Trial v. 3.7, VS 2008, SQL Server Express running on Windows 7.
I have finally managed to get Sitefinity loaded and running and I have verified that the Handleer Mapping includes "template" points to the correct URL for the executable.
I created a master page template in Visual Studio, reloaded Sitefinity (the logout link did nothing so I just closed the web page and started over) and the new template showed up. In the VS master page, there was a content holder in the Head section but nothing in Sitefinity except a placeholder in the Content section which I assume came from the body section fo the template.
Drragging and dropping controls into that section does nothing. Nor does selecting a control, selecting the Content section in the dropdown list and then clicking Add.
Are some controls not allowed in master templates? Should I have uploaded a master page even though it showed up in Sitefinity already?
Thank you very much for any insights.
