  • Hello,

    Please use this forum to post all your questions related to it. We'll be glad to discuss your ideas and help you with any issues you might have. 

    Sincerely yours,
    Sitefinity team.
  • We still wait to test it :)
  • I have loaded Thunder now.
    But I always get a failed connection when trying to establish a connection. How would I troubleshoot this.
    Also, after adding a Thunder project to my Sitefinity Soln. How do I have my Sitefinity web app reference the Thunder project?
  • Same here. Thunder said its connect but i cant upload a theme.

    Ok after restart of our Server it seems to be working
  • Hi Darrin,

    I see that your using Sitefinity 4.4. Have you installed the Thunder module (In Visual Studio -> Terlerik -> Sitefinity Thunder - > Install Sitefinity Thunder Module)?

    Please, check the documentation here:
    http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/sitefinity-thunder

    If the module is installed check that your site is running and you can login (you have to be administrator). Then check the connection settings in Visual Studio, it should be working fine.

    About the reference - there is no need to add reference to the themes project. Currently the Themes project is used as a "storage" so you can have the themes in TFS for example, separate from your web project. You just need to upload the theme. You can also use the themes without the Themes project: use "Add new item" in your web project - this will create the basic theme and will register it. This way you can work "locally", no need to upload themes via the Sitefinity Explorer.

  • After adding thunder to my C# vs 2012 project, I have discovered an unusual by product.  When I run my project from Visual Studio in debug mode, I am able to step through my project.  Once I stop debugging, I am unable to access any code behind files.  I have to exit studio and reenter to be able to access the code behind.  Has this been reported before?  Any solutions on resolving?

    Thanks
  • Hi Rick,

     Thank you for reporting this issue. What is the version of Thunder and the version of Sitefinity that you are using? Also what Thunder item did you create - a widget, a custom module, a dynamic items field control selector, etc. It would be really helpful if you record a video reproducing the issue, so we can investigate your steps and try to reproduce it on our side. In case it is a bug, we will log it and forward it for fixing to the Thunder development team.
    Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

  • Hi All,
    New to Sitefinity
    Have installed Thunder but am unable to connect

    Already logged in as administrator to my website
    Am using Cassini to run Sitefinity , could this be a reason
    URL I am using is http://localhost:55252/DavidMTest/
    Should it perhaps be just
     http://localhost:55252/ ie without the project name??


  • Hi,

    The project url must be "http://localhost:55252/" tough cassini is not the best web server in terms of speed so I recommend replacing cassini with IIS express which is also started from visual studio.
