    Where is this "Custom content type builder" requiring little or no coding you promised about a year ago and still listed in your core features list?

    Having upgraded from 3.7 to the Sitefinity 4 Enterprise edition, our organisation is very disappointed with the lack of migration support from 3.7 to 4. The tool is very buggy (too many issues to list here)

    We are also very disappointed with the broken promise of a custom content type builder. When will this be available ?

    Hi Hc,

    We are going to create a blog post today, which you will enjoy - it shares the direction we are taking with the migration tool.

    As for the custom content type builder, we are having custom fields via UI for now. We are not sure when the full blown Custom Content Type Builder will appear for the time being.

    Best wishes,
    Georgi

    Is there any updates on a custom content type builder? It is a core concept in "content management" which is showing up in many modern CMS's (Orchard, Drupal, etc). Please reconsider the importance of this.

    Hi,

    We won't be able to do the custom content type builder module for the 4.3 release. We will come back to this feature once again after the 4.3 though. Your feedback and request did not go to a black hole :).

    This feature would eliminate the need for creating custom modules by at least half. The module creation process in 4.2 is almost unchanged which makes this even a more requested feature. The Sitefinity Module Template in Visual Studio does not alleviate either. Thanks for listening :)

    Cool, hopefully it is ready by the time I'm finished with the current project.  I would hate to have to suggest Ektron as 1 of 2 choices.

    Hello,

    Thanks for all the feedback guys. We recognized this feature as an important and priority one, so indeed, we've put in on the speedline. Of course, that wouldn't have been possible with your opinions.

    That's why I always pay the hard earned moneys to the telerik instead of to the DevXpress' ;)

    Thanks for the input.  If you stay tuned, I'll be posting an easier aproach to module creation later today.
