Now that the Portal Connector binaries are installed, we need to activate the module in order to gain access to all of the custom widgets and functionality TPC provides.
If you are performing an upgrade from version 4.0 or higher, and The Portal Connector is already installed: you must copy the contents of the zip to the “bin” directory of your Sitefinity installation folder before proceeding.
To activate The Portal Connector, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the Sitefinity backend
- Under the Administration menu, select Modules & Services
