    Hello,

    I am currently in the process of evaluating Sitefinity and am an avid user of the Telerik controls. I want to try and work Sitefinity into our work environment here in our development lab. I was wondering if there's a way to cut out all the bells and whistle of Sitefinity such as blogs, lists, polls, etc and create just a generic project. Or is it posible to develop a project using the Sitefinity API and import it in to have sitefinity manage it later? Is this a concept sitefinity is looking into?

    Thank you.

    Hi pmessina,

    You can disable backend modules following this KB article - How to turn off modules, services and tools.
    Then you can use the API to customize the CMS.

    Hi Ivan,

    Thank you for the quick response. Essentially what I'm trying to find out is, does sitefinity allow for a thin client? We are running a secured portal and manage our database connections as well as table creations heavily. So is there a way to strip down the table install, thin out that sitefinity folder, as well as manage the connections on our own and use Sitefinity as a work flow adgent and incorporate the API into our own project? We need just the basics, Work flow, permissions, and dynamic content.

    Hi pmessina,

    You can delete some of the database tables after the project has been installed, but there are common tables so this will no be something that will increase the performance or save storage. You can delete some of the files in Sitefinity folder as well  like Forums templates.
