    I'm just getting started with sitefinity (3.6) and I'm wondering about how best to work with a site in visual studio.  When I've finished working with a site in VS should I compile (publish) the site?  Also, when creating user controls, if they're compiled, it seems like it's a two step process to load the control into the controls toolbox using the admin UI because the .dll route doesn't provide and option for the ascx load and the the ascx route doesn't provide a option for loading the .dll.  Am I misunderstanding how to use the system?

    Hello jas4on,

    Sitefinity works in the same way as each ASP.NET website. We follow the standard ASP.NET structure for a website. When the development is done you can migrate your website to the production.

    1. User controls - these controls are not compiled they resides in a folder of the web. application and their code can be changed by a developer easily.

    2. Custom controls - you can compile them the dlls and upload to Sitefinity using Controls toolbox section in page edit mode. Another option is registering the controls in your web.config file.

    Kind regards,
