    I'm interested in doing some customization to Sitefinity for a client.  I'd like to have some kind of "tags" module when creating pages on the site... and then a sidebar module for pulling related content based on those tags.  I know that Sitefinity has built in controls for this when using the blog or news modules but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to add tags to actual pages.

    Anyone have any general thoughts on this?  I suppose I could build a completely custom module for this but I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas or recommendation on this before I went that route.

    Any thoughts are appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hi Jay,

    The current API does not allow extending the page properties. This functionality will be available from Sitefinity 4.0. You could find the following posts useful Hack:Adding page properties to Sitefinity, Page Meta Data - Intercepting Sitefinity

    That article was extremely helpful.  Thanks Ivan!

    I may want until Sitefinity 4 is released for this project but if the client wants to move forward soon then this looks like a great solution.
