    I'm a little confused. I am trying to activate workflow for all modules that allow it... The documentation syas to got to the flowing directories:

    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Generic_Content/
    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Blogs/
    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Events/
    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Forums/

    and edit the ControlPanelPermissions.ascx to show the buttons...

    I see no such files in 3.6 for the modules... Could someone please tell me how to activate module workflow for all modules in version 3.6

    Hello Duncan,

    If you are using 3.5 or above just open the web.config file go to the <providers> section and edit the providers you need by adding/editing allowWorkflow property to "True". Example:
    <add name="Generic_Content" urlRewriteFormat="[Publication_Date]/[Name].aspx" urlDateTimeFormat="yy-MM-dd" urlWhitespaceChar="_" visible="True" defaultMetaField="Name" securityProviderName="" allowLocalization="True" allowVersioning="True" allowWorkflow="True" allowComments="false" commentsModeration="true" versioningProviderName="" connectionStringName="GenericContentConnection" type="Telerik.Cms.Engine.Data.Providers.DefaultProvider, Telerik.Cms.Engine.Data" /> 

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
