    Hello,

     I wanted to know the possibility of creating a generic content with Sitefinity 4.0 RC is the same functionality already existing in Sitefinity 3.7.

     In fact, in version 3.7 I can create a html content via the widget "Content Block" and I can still use it as a generic.

     In addition, when display I can select one or more generic Items, not as in version 4.0 where I have a widget “Generic Items list”.

     

    To be precise, I'm talking about the function of "Shared Content" V 3.7 and if it is no longer what's the alternative?

    Hello Millaneli,

    Sharing and branching option in Sitefinity 4.0 and its ContentBlock control will be implemented after the official release Q1-Q2 when the ContentBlockDesigner will be extended. Currently you need to implement a custom widget and use the API to create such a control that will branch and share content data.

    Thanks for the answer. Has anyone wrote such control that we can use as an example?
    I find the lack of shared generic content quite disturbing as I used it to give some of my users a simple way to update their site.

    Given the delay, it would be nice to have a sample in the forum on how to workaround this missing implementation.

    Hello Jerome,

    We will try to create a small blog post or update this post with a sample code. The implementation is not trivial. It will require

    1. Custom control with ControlDesigner.
    2. Working the the API to create a content item or branch it to a content of RadEditor (HtmlFiled in Sitefinity ) control.
