Content collection customization

This demo shows the customizability of collections in Sense/Net. The current page shows the top 5 articles.

You can use a custom .ascx user control to display this collection by following these steps:

  1. Login as Admin.
  2. Click the Portal Remote Control icon to open the list of available actions.
  3. Click Edit mode to switch the page to Edit mode.
  4. Click the down arrow on the right of the 'Top 5 articles' line.
  5. Select the Edit option. (A dialog will pop up.)
  6. Click on the button next to the textbox in the Renderers line.
  7. The Content Picker will appear. Select Article_Simple.ascx and click OK.
  8. Click OK at the bottom of the Content Query Presenter dialog.
  9. Click the Preview mode icon on the Portal Remote Control dialog to see the changes you made in browse mode.

You have changed the look and feel of the collection (e.g. the blue header text is now rendered in black.)

Now, try using an .xslt renderer by going through the above steps again, but this time selecting ContentList_Simple.xslt at the 6th step.
