    In my Sitefinity web site I want to get access to news from Sitefinity News API by this code:

    NewsManager newsManager = new NewsManager("News");
    IList contents = newsManager.Content.GetContent();
    for (int i = 0; i < contents.Count; i++)
    RadComboBoxItem ComdoItem = new RadComboBoxItem();
    IContent cont = contents[i] as IContent;
    ComdoItem.Text = cont.ID.ToString();

    Where CategorySelect is RadComboBox component. This code is my bad attempt to understand News module API. 

    How to get access to news from API ? How to add, view and modify news using Sitefinity News API ?

    Hello rent,

    News is GenericContent based module.

    1. How to add GC items/News

           ContentManager contentManager = new ContentManager("News"); 
           // create an empty content 
           IContent newContent = contentManager.CreateContent("text/html"); 
           newContent.Content = "Here is my custom content here"
           // set meta keys for the content item 
            //save the content 

    To get content you can call GetContent method and then modify it. More information at
