    I have read that Asp.Net MVC does not work with Sitefinity. Is this still true if I want to load custom User Controls into Sitefinity Pages that have been created in a separate Web Application project and use MVC? I do not need any other functionality for these controls from Sitefinity other than to have the control operate as designed from within a Sitefinity page placeholder.

    Hi Danr,

    Sitefinity is built on top of ASP.NET WebForms, not ASP.NET MVC. This means that the project will not be able to work with ASP.NET MVC user controls. However if you rework your user control to work on a ASP.NET WebForms application it will also work in Sitefinity.

    Kind regards,
