Modules for Sitecore 6

In my last post I mentioned some of the larger modules that we have upgraded to Sitecore 6 along with  new ones like the extensive Domain Objects module by Mark Cassidy.

Since then other modules have been upgraded as well, some needed more work than others but seeing that the framework hasn’t changed all that much since the previous version, most will work without any or minor changes to them. The AdRotator just needed some code removed too and compiled against the latest Sitecore.Kernel.dll and it was working. The same goes for the Meta-tags module.

The Multiple Sites Manager needed a minor change to one of the files and a repackaging to work with version 6 but modules like the Wiki worked without any changes made to it. Some of the smaller modules will probably also work without any modifications and that is why I am concentrating on the larger modules.

So seeing that the modules are shared source there is no stopping you to download it and make the changes that it need in order to work with the Sitecore 6 and then you are off course welcome to commit those changes to its project room.

  1. Hi Jimmie,

    Can you be more specific about Multiple Sites Manager module? Which are the steps for running this module with version 6?


  2. Can you please list the changes that required to allow for the Multiple Sites Manager module work in version 6?

    thank you

  3. Hi Ionel and Crystal,

    Not much have changed with the Multiple Sites Manager between version 5.3 and 6. So the steps are the same as those you used in the previous version.
