Re: Setting up Module

Hi,

Yes its possible to implement a clone of the Html content feature as external projects using the same example pattern as you see for WebStore.

No I cannot help you do it. If you run into specific questions I will try to answer as best as I can.

Best,

Joe

Re: Setting up Module

It can be done the same way as with other files. To use it in mojoportal you create a new skin (master page is just one part of skin) and copy it to the correct location using post build events.

to use in mojoPortal your master page should inherit code behind from the same base class as other layout.master files in existing skins.

note that the skin or master page is not a concern of modules, it is set at the page level not at the feature instance.

Re: Setting up Module

Hi,

if i use the master page of mojoPortal.Web i have a error on System.Web.UI.ScriptManager.

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'ScriptManager' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web.UI' (are you missing an assembly reference?) . how it's possible?

Can you help me?

Thank you

Re: Setting up Module

Hi Joe,

when i define the layout master page, i have inserted the follow:

tag

<portal:PageMenu id="PageMenu1" runat="server" UseTreeView="true" TreeViewShowExpandCollapse="true" />

 

in web.config i insert the entry:

 

<add tagPrefix="portal" tagName="Breadcrumbs" src="~/Controls/BreadcrumbsControl.ascx" />

 

but VisualStudio says that

Error 1 Element 'PageMenu' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web site.

have you an idea of this error?

Thank you a lot for your help.

Regards

Michele

Re: Setting up Module

Your code is in an external project right? I think you need to copy some stuff from the mojoPortal Web.config into your project Web.config. You need to reference mojoPortal.Web project and add the controls references to the <pages> <controls>... section of Web.config

Hope it helps,

Steve

Re: Setting up Module

Also your custom project cannot be run by itself as the startup project. You must make mojoPortal.Web the startup project and use post build events to copy your files to locations under the Web project.
