Create a Testimonials intra-site module
Sitefinity comes with a set of built-in modules, which can be directly used in the pages you create. You are also capable of creating your own custom modules and use them side by side with the default ones.
For more information about modules in Sitefinity, see Working with modules.
This tutorial guides you through the steps required to create a custom intra-site module. As an example, you create a Testimonials module. Its purpose is to manage thoughts and testimonials. Frontend users have the possibility to submit their testimonial, while backend users are able to access a page in the Sitefinity backend that provides an overview of all submitted testimonials with the possibility to edit them. The tutorial focuses on the following:
- Preparing the project
- Implementing the data model
- Creating the frontend and backend views
- Creating the module
- Using the module
NOTE: You can find a full code sample for the Testimonials 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
- Visual Studio
- 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.
NOTE: The code provided in this tutorial is written in C#. You can convert the code to VB using the Telerik Code Converter.
