Kentico has had a Marketplace for a long time, longer than I've been working with Kentico.  The Marketplace has been a place to share useful tools and components with the world.  In this article i'll describe two tools to help you get started with your Kentico component submission.

MVC Routing operates on the basis that a request is handled by Controllers and Actions in predefined routes. Dynamic Routing is where a request maps to a Page (TreeNode), and that Page's settings (Template, Page Type) determines how the request should be handled (which Controller/Action/View). In Portal Engine, the Url matched the NodeAliasPath or Url Aliases of a page, and the Page's Template then determined how it was handled. In this article we will outline how to restore the Portal Engine request handling now that the Kentico 12Service Pack is out.

Things have been moving along in the Kentico MVC world.  As an MVP I was priveledged to get a preview of the upcoming Service Pack and we have the green light to share that with you.  I also have worked on another improvement to restore some of the Kentico Portal Engine functionality that I'll go into depth explaining.

The transition from Portal Engine to MVC can be challenging for many who are new to MVC.  Many of the features we were accustomed to having through webparts now require coding to enable or add them in.  Kentico provided the Dancing Goat site in MVC to showcase many of their features, but the down side is there’s too much in it, it’s very hard to “strip” out the Dancing Goat and preserve the Kentico features so you can start a new project.

Sadly the “Blank MVC Site” goes to the other extreme, it’s truly Blank.  There’s nothing in it, no Authentication Own setup, no routes or helpers, no 404s handlers, no bundles, no nothing.  Leaving a first-time developer going through a lot of documentation to get things started.

Binding objects on the Node is a smart way to store your page's relationships.  However making sure the bound objects are synced up with the document can be tricky and require some custom coding.  In this article i'll take a deep dive into the Staging Module, how it works, why Node binding is unique, and how to make your Node-to-Object bindings stage properly with your document.

One of the things I’m known in the Kentico community is my desire to build useful tools for developers, so they can leverage Kentico’s features to a greater degree of ease and scope.  In this article I'll demonstrate a new Module I've created to allow you to more easily create and manage relationships within Kentico.

Many of you have probably used the ControlExtender class to extend Kentico’s various User Interfaces, such as the Edit Binding template, or Object Listing.  Or maybe you've even used it to extend an inherited Form Control.  But how many realize that this ControlExtender can really extend any control?
