Videos demonstrating tips, advice, code samples, and best practices for using and developing for the Sitefinity CMS platform by Telerik
Adding a content block to a Sitefinity page with a Content widget (such as News, Events, Blogs, etc.) displays that content for both the master list and single item details view for the content. This video demonstrates how you can easily inherit from this control to make a hideable content block that only renders when the page is in the master list view.
The ViewMap is a Sitefinity setting that globally maps Sitefinity control types to specific custom templates. You can use this go override the default templates for virtually any Sitefinity control. In this video we demonstrate how the Viewmap, along with a little help from Telerik's free JustDecompile utility, allow you to remove the Social Links checkbox option for Content Blocks. For more information on the Sitefinity Viewmap, see this post on the Sitefinity Blogs: http://bit.ly/qWiY0t
Sitefinity includes a helpful inline editing feature, which allows an authorized user to quickly update content on the public website instead of the administration backend. This can be enabled for all, some, or no users, depending on your needs and configuration.
By default, Sitefinity disallows special characters in the SEO title for a page. This video demonstrates how to override this setting, allowing you to specify different restrictions (or remove them entirely).

The Sitefinity Ecommerce Config class has a helpful property containing a list of countries that you can easily use to bind to a custom control, such as a drop down menu.
