    We are re-creating our large HTML and Classic ASP intranet in Sitefinity. Half the pages are HTML forms, and those either use FrontPage Extensions to send the form data via email to a recipient or ASP code to perform other actions on the form data.

    We do not want to continue using these old pages, for the continuing large maintenance cost and the effort required to change them to use the themes and templates of the new site, as well as all the links and menus.

    Is there a quick way to convert these to Sitefinity pages, or are we stuck recreating them manually? If the latter, can you create a form on a page in the CMS? I don't see any of the typical HTML form objects like Input or Select, or their Telerik RadTools counterparts, that I can drag onto a page. Will I have to create a user control in Visual Studio for each form?

    Hello RSewell,

    There is no straight forward way to convert a standard ASP.NET project directly to Sitefinity. You have to convert all logic you have in a custom or user controls. You can use the API and work programmatically if you want to create some of your objects as Sitefinity's objects.

    Kind regards,

    Very little is ASP.NET, rather it is classic ASP, or HTML forms with FrontPage Extensions. But it looks like the answer is the same.

    Thanks, Ivan.
