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.
To activate The Portal Connector, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the Sitefinity backend
- Under the Administration menu, select Modules & Services
- Scroll down until you find “The Portal Connector” module. On the right-hand side of this option, select “Actions” and then “Install”. This process usually takes between 2-4 minutes, depending on server speed.
