Apoligies if this is a naive question, but I last used Episerver 6.
Is using the "Page Type Builder" open source component still a good idea when on EpiServer 9?
I know what "Page Tpe Builder" is for, I just want to know is it still an option for Episerver 9, where there maybe other better options?
I'm not porting a site. It is a clean sheet project.
Thanks in advance.
Page Type Builder is not used in EPiServer anymore, but EPiServer has implemented their own solutions for strongly typed pages that works more or less in the same way. Have a look here: http://world.episerver.com/documentation/Items/Developers-Guide/Episerver-CMS/9/Content/Page-types-and-templates/
If you are used to PTB, then David's three blogpost contain a very good comparison:
Yup. Episerver has very nice support for strongly typed page types out of the box now. Also the new block concept for building a more component based solution like the old composer module. Enjoy! :)
