I've been searching for some hours now about how to create some own custom-made lists. But i really dont find any good information.
My goal: Create a simple "Guestbook" by using the List Module within Sitefinity. Listing the posts inside a List "Guestbook". So the admin simply can edit/remove the posts if he/she finds some posts which shouldn't be there.
I want one control to list all the posts and at the top a simple RadEditor control with a "Post comment" button.
And a control which i'm able to list the latest 3 posts from the "Guestbook" list.
1. First of all, i was hoping to be able to create own "fields" in a list. But that idea i gave up kinda quick, when i understood that it's impossible.
2. Instead a used the Content field for all the post-information. (which isnt so good, due the fact that you really cant sort the list by name, date etc).
My content will now look something like this:
||6 augusti 2009, 13:07:04
"Hi there, this is a guestbook post"
3. I can list the items in the List Guestbook, but i cant Sort or Order them at the moment. Is that possible? I need to order them by some form of ID in a DESC way (so i can get the last 3 posts that was posted).
So. How do you make a simple guestbook control which can be included inside the CMS-section? Am i all out in the blue when i considering this way of approch?
Thanks for all help/ideas i can get. / Magnus
