Zheyna, I've done exactly what you suggested. I've even tried it twice, starting with a blank project. No luck. Please see my attached screen shots. How do I get the template importer to show up in the Design menu? I'm trying to set this up for a less technically skilled coworker to use. Thanks again. -Keith
Steps with ‘Empty project updated’
1) Create new project in Sitefinity 4.3 project manager
2) Go to ‘administration’
3) Click ‘settings’
4) Click ‘advanced’
5) Scroll down to ‘system’ and open that branch
6) Scroll to ‘applicationModules’
7) Create a new & enter the screen shot settings WITHOUT VERSION NUMBER
8) Log off
9) Completely restart the Sitefinity Project Manager and log in.
10) You should see the template builder in the drop down.
Steps when you need to update the ‘Empty project’
1) Backup the empty project
2) Open empty project csproj
3) Click solution, and add existing project
4) Click the empty project and ‘add reference’
5) Build the solution
Your empty project now has the template builder incorporated. Just follow the first set of steps with Empty project updated.
The Template Importer is not a built-in part of Sitefinity. It is a separate module, which can be included to your project. For this purpose, however, you will need to add reference to it in Visual Studio.
I am having the same issue Keith was having. I have followed all the steps mentioned and the template importer menu item does not appear in the design dropdown. (see Module Screenshot) I did notice that the template importer is in the "modules" section of the admin area, but it says that it is not installed. When I choose install from the menu next to the module it does refresh the page but the module still says it is not installed. (see Install Module) I am running Sitefinity 5.4 so I don't have the "version" line, but an "error" line. I am trying to install the module into an existing project. Can anyone give me any insight on what I may be doing wrong? Thanks
