This tutorial guides you through the steps required to create a custom content-based module. It is intended for developers and covers step-by-step a wide range of activities and best practices on how to create a module for Sitefinity. As an example, you create a Jobs/HR module that harnesses the built-in features of Sitefinity’s Content model. Its purpose is to manage job applications. Frontend users have the possibility to submit their job applications, while backend users are able to access a page in the Sitefinity backend that provides an overview of all submitted applications. The tutorial focuses on the following:
- Preparing your working environment
- Implementing the provider pattern
- Creating the frontend and backend views
- Creating the module
- Installing the module
- Using the module in your website
NOTE: You can find a full code sample for the Jobs module inside the samples project, which ships together with Sitefinity SDK.
Before you begin creating your module, you must have the following installed:
- .NET Framework 4.0

- Sitefinity SDK
In order to create and use your module, you need to have an up and running Sitefinity project. For more information about installing Sitefinity and creating and starting a project, see Installation and Administration Guide.
