    Hello, we are currently evaluating Sitefinity 5.0 and a question has come up about how modular this version of Sitefinity is. Is it now possible to disable several of the modules that we have no use for? If so, once disabled can we remove the related web services?

    For example, we have no use for the following modules: Forums, Ecommerce, Events and Blogs.

    Thanks,

    Steven

    Hello,

    Steve is correct; this feature is coming in Sitefinity 5.1 (just around the corner).

    The feature will allow you to choose which features to install during the installation, as well as the backend screen for installing/uninstalling/registering/unregistering of all the modules and services.

    The uninstall will be a full uninstall, meaning that nothing will be left over behind it.

    I hope this helps. 

    Kind regards,
    Ivan

    The logical extension to that would be... allow module selection at purchase time, and price accordingly. Allowing the removal of modules is nice, but even nicer would be not paying for something you don't have a use for. Purchase them as add-ons if/when you have the need.

    Hi,

    I see your point, however this decision is handled by the Sitefinity business team and it is not something I can comment on.

    You can, however, share your feedback with the business team on this page:
    http://www.sitefinity.com/purchase/contact-us.aspx 

    I am sorry that I was not able to be of more help on this issue. 

    Greetings,
