please have a look at my trouble tickets.
In 2009 I decided to go with Telerik about the perfect Rad Tools ASP.NET AJAX. - These tools are really easy to use and time saving. - It was a great chance to be productive. - I am not a hard core developer and therefore it was so fine to have a productive toolset.
Then Telerik decided to buy the Sitefinity Company and we got two different solutions, as I mean we got two different companies offered. - And while Version 3.x Sitefinity always told us, that everything will be fine with SF 4.x - So we had to wait. - In January 2010 Sitefinity promoted the rollout before summer, in summer they published the rollout in autumn, then in autumn Sitefinity promised (!) it would com in 2010. - As wee all know, it came on january 14th 2011 but ...... very futuristic if you only want to use it as a normal content management tool and with only one language.
Features that we need in Europe, multi language for instance does not work with the search feature, the Telerik navigation menu tool does not hide page where you check "do not show in navigation", and .... the worst thing is:
Telerik GRID does not fire. - No updates, deletes and so are working. - Your advice to build special and difficult workarounds is bringing us away and off from an easy to use and productive toolset. Telerik and Sitefinity is not ONE company solution until today. - Look at your own www.telerik.com - you have embedded sitefinity, but you for yourself did not upgrade your website to SF 4.0 until today. - And I think I know why: because Telerik tools do not work without errors in SF 4.0.
Sorry, but we cannot wait for well done solutions longer as a year. - At the moment we are dependent, but you can imagine we are looking for solutions of other vendors, where we do not have such problems.
