Quick question to seek some advice on best way of dev'ing this rather unique website - I'm new to Kentico (impressed so far!) for the record and only started looking at it a few days ago.
Essentially, I guess I will need to programmatically query the content nodes and inject the content into the page calling the API (?) in the page code-behind. The type of content will be restricted, they won't be adding pages, they just need it for changing some text and adding new "objects" that will get generated by a repeater or something.
I was going to classify these objects by creating another doc type and creating them under those.
Is this possible? Basically, the document types won't belong to a "page" as such, as I just want to read in what the user has set and add them to the one page.
Does this make sense? Really just looking for some advice over what capabilities of Kentico I should look into to achieve this. So far I think I'll need:
- a couple of different document types to represent the stuff the user can create and add pictures/pdfs/text etc to
- several custom forms that the doc types will point to for the setting of their properties - basically housing a uniselector (?) that reads data (i could either hard code or store in custom table?)
- a form to submit data (not sure how i'll handle that one yet though it'll need to be done using ajax as there can't be a postback)
Any help, advice, tips would be most appreciated!
