    hi guys!

    i'm trying to re-enable page workflow on our development box. however having looked through the web.config it seems as though page workflow is enabled!

    <add connectionStringName="DefaultConnection" allowPageHistory="true" allowPageWorkflow="true" name="Sitefinity" type="Telerik.Cms.Data.DefaultProvider, Telerik.Cms.Data" />; 

    could you suggest any other places where i may have to enable workflow? i turned it off at some point but really can't remember how/where i did it :-(

    Hello Nick,

    There is only one place from where you can enable the page workflow and it is from Cms provider declaration.

    <cms licenseFile="~/App_Data/LicenseFile.xml" defaultProvider="Sitefinity" pageExtension=".aspx" redirectToHomePage="true"
       disabled="false" pageEditorUIMode="Overlay">
       <providers>
        <clear />
        <add connectionStringName="DefaultConnection" allowPageHistory="true"
         allowPageWorkflow="True" cachingProviderName="ASPNET" name="Sitefinity"
         type="Telerik.Cms.Data.DefaultProvider, Telerik.Cms.Data" />
       </providers>

    As I see it you have the same lines.

    sorry, my mistake it seems workflow is enabled (i feel stupid now!), but i was hoping for workflow for page properties.

    is this at all possible?

    Hi Nick,

    The workflow is set for the whole provider. It works in the same way for Generic Content based modules. The functionality will be extended for Sitefiinity 4.0.

    All the best,
