Registering Custom Modules

  • Registering Custom Modules
  • I am trying to register the Jobs Intermediate custom module found in the installation  path of sitefinity 4.0, build 4.0.1098.0 (telerik\Sitefinity 4.0\Samples\CS\) after I failed to register my own custom module.

     

    I referenced the module assembly in my sitefinity project and added the necessary configuration in the administration settings area and reset the IIS but that didn't get the Jobs module to appear in the Content menu.

     

    Below is the SystemConfig.config entry for the new module:

     


    <
    add title="Jobs" description="" resourceClassId="JobsResources" type="JobsIntermediate.JobsModule" startupType="OnApplicationStart" name="JobsModule" />

     

     

    Am I missing or doing anything wrong?

    Thank you very much for your kind assistance.

  • Hello Fadi Raheel,

    The actual name of the module is "Jobs".

    Try the following configuration:


    <
    add title="Jobs" description="" resourceClassId="JobsResources"type="JobsIntermediate.JobsModule" startupType="OnApplicationStart" name="Jobs" />

  • Hi Pavel,

    Thank you very much for your reply.
    I have changed the module name but that didn't get the module to display. Is there any other thing i can do to get it registered?

    thanks in advance.



  • Hello Fadi Raheel,

    Please remove the version attribute for this module and restart the application. This should re-register the module.

  • Hi,

    I added the "Jobs Intermediate" folder inside my sitefinity project. Also I I added the module as mentioned in systemconfig.config.

    Can you please tell me where to check this module added in sitefinity....?

    Thanks

  • Hi sathiyaseelan,

    If the modules is added to Sitefinity we create a new record inside

    ~/App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/systemConfig.config

    Note that there should be a property version, which shows the module version. If you remove this property, this should reinstall the module. Application restart is required after changes to the config files.
