why modules builder cannot automatically create a widget

  • why modules builder cannot automatically create a widget
  • Our company decided to using Sitefinity CMS. initially, this project is outsource project, but now we need to take care of it.

     we have a problems new, when we use modules builder to create a new model, we cannot find a associated  widget , we also cannot find out it in the content menu. but we do see we successfully create a table in debase, and we also see the created module.  

     anyone know the reason?

  • Hi Guo,

    After you create a dynamic module from Administration -> Module Builder and the newly created module is active, you should be able to create dynamic module items of this type under the Content tab. Can you please make sure that the module is active. In order to check this, please go to Administration -> Modules and Services, find your module and check if its status is Active.

    Sitefinity also creates built-in widgets for the dynamic modules. Please open a page in edit mode and you should see the built-in widgets in the toolbox on the right-hand side. Here is a sample screenshot for the built-in widgets of a dynamic module titled Schools.

    It is also important to note that if you are in a multisite mode, you need to configure the modules for the specified site and select the data source for each site. You may take a look at the following article for more details. You may also checkout the following forum post where a similar issue has been discussed.
