    Hello

    I'm trying to extend the page properties to be able to include some teaser text and a thumbnail with each page.
    I'm aware that the ability to do this using the metafields is coming with Sitefinity 4 but upgrading is not an option for us right now.

    I've seen this method :
    http://www.sitefinitywatch.com/blog/09-03-13/Hack_Adding_Properties_to_Sitefinity_Pages.aspx

    but i am wondering if someone has been able to come up with a workaround that lets the iser set those properties directly on the page properties screen.

    thanks

    Hello iStudio,

    It is possible if you have a data provider that persists the data to your database. The easiest way is using LINQ to SQL. However, there is no way to access this properties using ICmsPage object or IPage object.

    Best wishes,
