Perhaps another way to do this is to use something like OpenContent (if you're not going to do it through a custom module).

I saw that post already, it seems as though the list functionality no longer exists in version 9.  Is there some other functionality for storing structured data within DNN?


the funcionality is still there (even the Lists table still exists, also in a fresh install). It seems that the module to edit the lists has been pulled out from the installation and not been replaced by something in the Persona Bar.

What I tried: I downloaded and extracted the DNN 8.0.4 installation package, and installed the Lists module from there in a clean DNN 9.1.1 installation. (You can find the install package in the extracted folder under /install/modules). The installation did not fire any error, so I could add the module on a page - it shows something (but NOT all lists that you can find in the table), and it was impossible to add a new list - the Update button did not react at all. Propably this is due to breaking changes in DNN 9, and propably this is the reason why the module was pulled out.

But that does not mean that the functionality for the lists (i.e. ListController and ListInfo objects) have gone. If you need to use the lists in another module - you can. And you can also download the source code of the Lists module, fix it and contribute it.

Sorry for not having better news for you.

Happy DNNing!

AFAIR, according to Will Morgenweck, the Lists module has been removed intendedly, however there is still missing option to edit the lists contained, which are intended for customization (like Search Words etc.
