Episerver WebPart for CMS 6


Hello Guys,

Can you please tell us how we can create the webpart in episerver 6.0

I haven't worked with webparts in CMS 6 yet, but you could have a look at the webpart framework here:  That page contains information about the webpart framework, and how you create webparts in EPiServer.

Try downloading the sourcecode and compile it with the EPiServer 6 dlls. Not sure it works, but it should :)

Hi Lars,

Thanks for the response. Actually i was trying to add webparts to episerver pagetype(Episerver Project), it displayed webpart but the dropdown like close edit menu for webpart was not displayed, where as in normal web application it displays correctly. Don't knwo what's wrong?

EPiServer hooks onto the right-click menu, so you will need to change that. I've only worked with the webpart framework when I used webparts, so I'm not sure what you are doing wrong. But, you should have a look at the open source code for EPiServer 6 version of the framework here:

You should be able to see what they are doing different :)   Considering there actually is a web part framework, I'm guessing it's not trivial to get it working. I can really recommend trying the framework!

Which EPiServer version are you using, and which version of the webpart framework are you using?

Hi bodahl,

I am using EPiServer CMS 6 and the webpart framework is [WebPartsFramework_CMS5R2SP2_1441[I COPIED THE NAME OF THE FILE WHICH I DOWNLOADED bcoz i dont know the version]]..............

I tried another time also.....but the problem is not fixed.......

That is the web part framework for EPiServer CMS 5. It will not work in CMS 6.

Remove everything you have done from Ted's blog post, open your web.config file and search for <!-- Uncomment this section to enable webpart support on the site -->
