    I always like to note some potential new features. If any get enough feedback I'll implement them

    • Skinning Support (Umrbaco 4.6)
    • Article Lists (News or Events)
    • RSS Feed
    • Google Sitemap XML

    Anything else?

    I would be extremely glad with a News Articles package. Almost every website I built needs this.

    News articles and events are big.  I think they are really two distinct features though.  For example, in my last website I did, all current news articles were summarized on a single page, and you could drill down to see more.  A picture and a page of text was common for each news article. 

    Events on the other hand was a bigger undertaking.  Each event was just a short time and description, but there were several each day, some recurring throughout the week/month.  So a calendar and agenda like view was necessary on the frontend.  And the backend required special code to manage recurring events.

    It's a big undertaking, but one of the major things I think Umbraco is missing.  It's actually the only thing I miss from DotNetNuke.

    Thanks for trying the package and providing feedback

    @Anthony -I've just released version 1.1 that includes an Article List functionality. I also decided to add a EmailForm to support basic contact form functionality, there are 5 textbox or textarea boxes with configurable labels and mandatory text.

    @Dah - Agreed, event functionality can be quite complicated. I'll not be tackling this in this package as I don't think it's in most 'Standard' websites. However, I think there is event functionality in

    Thanks again both for the feedback,
