    This wiki might have some nice tips:,-tips-for-creating-packages.

    For the rest it's probably best if you go to the package tree in the developer settings and just click create. There you can see all the possibilities for creating a package. Most things are pretty straightforward.

    Hi Jeroen, Thanks for the response. I have already gone thru,-tips-for-creating-packages. but is not of that use for begginer. But yes your pointer to " go to the package tree in the developer settings and just click create" was really helpful. I never knew that we can create package from Umbraco backend itself. Thanks a lot for this pointer.

    I'm trying to create a rather large package to open-source here on Our, but I'm having a hard time, like Pinal, figuring out the abc's of everything. I currently have seperate tables in my database for my module, also I currently have a project added to my VS solution along with build events to copy over files to appropriate folders. Now I'm thinking that it's not everyone using VS to build their websites, so I'll probably want 2 versions but I guess I'll look into that later.

    I have custom controls for back office and also a new section for my module.

    I guess I'm looking for a basic tutorial for advanced packages, with custom development.

    I'll keep at it!
