The Sitefinity Toolkit is a collection of enhancements to the Sitefinity Content Management System by Telerik. It includes a number of tools to automate and simplify a number of actions and features. For more details, take a look at my Introduction to the Sitefinity Toolkit.
Each feature will get its own blog post with details on how to use it, and will be linked here as they are updated.
