    Some feedback

    Hello,

    I just installed the Standard Website MVC package and here is some quick feedback:

    • When I search I don't get any search results. Tested with words like "standard", "article" and "about".
    • When trying to send the contact form it gives this error: "A from address must be specified.". I looked at the code and no from adres is set on the MailMessage object.
    For the rest this is a very nice example :-). Good work!
    Jeroen

    Nice work mate, lost of good small exampels in there thats gonna help a lot of ppl getting started. 

    BUT dont call it mvc when using masterpages and inline scripting it is so fare away from best practice, i would love to see this goldplated with surface controllers and all that sweet stuff. cause u got all the core functionalty a small website has.

    I tested this package and it is using MVC and surface controllers so could you give some examples?

    Jeroen - Thanks for your feedback, a new release will be out soon with 

    • I've updated the install process to reindex the site once it's installed and changed the search code to use a fuzzy search that works better.
    • I've added a Sender field onto the contact doc type. I've left all the other SMTP settings to default to the web.config settings. Sound ok?
     
    Troels - Thanks, but I agree with Jeroen as the site does use surface controllers and doesn't use any master pages. Did you remember to set the defaultRenderingEngine to MVC before you installed? If you could create a new thread with your suggestions for improvement that'd be great.

    I've just released a new version with the improvments. However, I have no idea how to force the successful rebuild of the examine indexes, the only manual steps that work are to bounce the web.config and then run 

    ExamineManager.Instance.IndexProviderCollection[i].Name

    Any ideas?
