    #2 - Extensible "Page Properties".
    #3 - Advanced Query Developer Interface
    #4 - "Dynamic, In-Line" Links
    #5 - "On-the-fly, In-Line" Photo Insertion

    The subject should have been

    "Top 5 Most Wanted Sitefinity Features".  Alas, I cannot edit it now.

    Did these make it in then? Still seems the same in 3.5 for point 1 & 2 and point 1 in particular is likely to be a show stopper for me.

    Wow, this is an old thread.  I had forgotten how much of a pain I was.  :)

    #1 - Read below.
    #2 - Read below.
    #3 - API is vastly improved.  Sitefinity 4.0 will have LINQ support.
    #4 - Link dialog was added, dynamic links coming with 3.6.
    #5 - The Images & Documents Module allows this.

    Regarding items #1 and #2, I was able to eventually achieve a lot with a few custom user controls & a custom module.

    However, I would be interested to hear about your scenario.  What obstacles are you facing where #1 & #2 would be useful to you?

    Thanks,

    Hi Gabe

    Think we are all a pain when new to a system!

    I am looking at the possibility of moving my current site which is all bespoke over to Sitefinity. The site has the usual page requirements but also we feature some quite complex travel products, blogs, forums, photos, videos, user rating and comments and social networking. My main area for concern to start with would be the admin for the product side of things - what you outline in point 1 sounded ideal but having spent a couple more hours digging through sf (only started this morning) I can see a custom module would allow me to keep the functionality of, say, holidays self contained in the same way blogs are:

    I create one page for holidays and drop holidays control on it. which internally provides landing pages/search/holiday details/etc. In admin under modules/holidays there is crud interface for staff.

    This is actually a better route for me as it means page creation is kept away from users and the content they can create is through well defined modules which plug straight into the sites structure.

    Great news on Linq - do you know if that be supported through Nolics, Entity Framework or something new?

    Thanks
    Dave

    Hi David,

    We are working on an integration of OpenAccess with Sitefinity. This means that you are going to change Nolics, and we will not use Entity Framework. Open Access will provide you with many similar goodness combined with performance and flexibility. You could have a brief idea in our Online Demos.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
