    Hi all, i'm trying to make parent child module (promotion and promotion slide). so i decide to make two module inside one project. the first module (promotion) worked fine.
    the problem occurred when the second module is registered. it broke down the backend saying cannot find specified key or class id. it's looks like the previous resource file being override by the new resource file.
    it's just a hunch, maybe someone out there can shed me the light where to seek?

    here the module project if needed. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/28625312/Module.zip

    Thank you

    Hello Augus,

    We tried to run your modules on the latest release of sitefintiy 4.1 SP1. The bigget problem seem to be that both modules tried to install a group page with the same Url, once we fixed this - they were installing ok and the backend was working ok. There was also a problem that one of the workflows was not embeded resoruce -so we couldn't create a new slides item. I am attaching the module with the changes.
    I am curious why is the need to to create 2 modules instead of one. With one module you can still have 2 menu items and 2 workflows, 2 providers etc. 2 Modules only make sense if people don't need to install or use on of them in certain occasions - is this really the case?
    Also if you don't need to have some customzied workflow - you don't need to create and embed new worfklow files. You can relate to the default AnyContent workflow.

    Thanks for the reply Nikolay. i will try it. well my reason i create two module is because i don't have a clue what is the best practice. i'm really a newbie with sitefinity. Really appreciate for the help :).

    another question, if im continue with this module, can i implement the IHasParent and IHasContentChild to the promotion and promotionChild?

    Edit:
    i'm using the module you supplied and i got this error after adding reference to the module

    Hi Augus,

    It sounds like you added something new to your module mappings that causes this error, i got to admit i haven't seen it until now. Can we have your latest project code again?

    Hi Nikolay,

    after i'm upgrade to 4.1 SP1 SDK the error is gone now and i can't replicate it. so it doesn't matter now.

    Thank you for your help :)
