    Hallo

    i am evaluating different CMS for our new community project. Sitefinity looks quite attractive and has most of the features we need out-of-box. Just one question is still open for me: does it support user profiling? I  want users to modify their data as address, email, photo etc. and present it as a user profile for other users. Does Sitefinity have this feature or is there any available control?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Maria

    Hi Maria Leopold,

    Thank you for your interest in our CMS.

    Yes, we have this feature out of the box. The users profiles could even be extended - you can have unlimited number of fields. This means that if you need to add an another field (for example User's Car), you can do it anytime with a modification in the web.config file. Please take a look at the attached screenshot - this is the default user profile screen.

    Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions - we would be glad to provide you with an answer.


    Best wishes,
    Georgi

    Hallo Georgi

    thank you very much for the answer. May I use your attention for two more questions? :)

    - do I understand correct, that user profile feature is extendable? We will need some advanced profiling functions, like hierarchical profiles (User + Company Profile), showing some dynamic content (user recent comments) on the profile page and definition of visibility levels (user sets his email as private or public). I dont expect these secifics being delivered out-of-box, but it would be great not to develop them from scratch :)

    - does Standard Edition contain a larger library of controls? Or are there any additional control libraries available (i goggled one but the website doesnt work..)

    Thanks a lot.

    Maria

    Hi Maria Leopold,

    1. You can extend the Profile section depending on your needs. You can use ManageProfile control ( it is our implementation) or System.Web.Profile Namespace ( ASP.NET ).

    2. Each module has several controls that are especially build to show the information managed by a module. Additionally there are navigation, security, data controls. In Sitefinity you can add each asp.net and rad control without any problems. You can develop custom and user controls that you can use on your pages.
