    I am evaluating the SiteFinity for one of my project and am eager to know how flexible it is.
    My requirement is to create aspx web pages in Sitefinity and customize few pages business logic using C#, framework 3.5. To do so, I was looking in SiteFinity where I can add my custom code but didn’t found any place. Most of the CMS provide this flexibility to add the custom modules. Please help me to locate the same.

    Ravishankar,
      Sitefinity is the CMS, it's really just a plain asp.net website project (C#)...you can add new usercontrols by just putting in ascx control in the webroot somewhere and add a node to the toolbox in the webconfig.

    So you have two options
    1) Make you page in the CMS, and drag-drop the functional components you build onto it
    2) Create the page yourself in visual studio, and in the CMS mark it as "external"...downside here is that you cant change page data IN the CMS.

    You wont find a more flexible CMS...
