    I would like to request the ability to display external content within a Content Block in a manner similar to SharePoint Portal Server Web Parts.  In SharePoint Portal Server, I can utilize a Content Viewer web part and enter the Url of some external website/external content, which will then be subsequently displayed within the context of SharePoint Portal Server.

    If I can utilize the same functionality in Sitefinity, this will allow me to be able to utilize and leverage the Sitefinity CMS templates, but still be able to display externally residing content as if it belongs to my current website.

    Hello Samir Vaidya,

    Your request was logged to our Public Issue Tracking System on this link:
    You can follow it to vote and keep track of the status.

    As a workaround we would recommend using Content Blocks in HMTL mode and inserting there external content in an iframe.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
