Hi Shamil

Oh, if you cannot find your way through the code, I wouldn't even attempt to try ...

Another option is available as open-source as well, Umbraco:


This was recently chosen by MS to power nothing less than the ASP.NET site itself:


Today they released the alpha-version 4.6 named JUNO which now also will run off the tiny Microsoft SQL CE 4:


It _is_ in fact quite sunny here, indeed for the season.

Hi Gustav --

I have got Composite C1 sources downloaded.
And I have got Composite C1 solution opened in VS2010.
And I have looked through the source code.
I must note it looks so advanced - I mean I can't get where to start
"digging through" this code to understand what it's doing.
And developer's docs are missing(?).
I suppose I should better stay away from this code - back to DNN: at least
when looking through DNN modules' code it's rather clear how they are
organized, what they do - and there is no need in almost any developer's

P.S. Sunny Copenhagen? Are you kidding? Or do you mean it's sunny there now?
As far as I have got from my experience during my short staying there this
summer Copenhagen should be called rainy not sunny? :)

Hi Shamil

I just checked the download links and they seem to work, but I cannot locate
the link you mention.

As for some real life implementations, check at menu References:


And right, the Composite guys are located in sunny but not-so-hot
