Google Chrome & Silverlight - What's Going On?

If you're using Google Chrome - the browser of choice by many these days - and our beloved Kentico CMS, you may experience some basic features of Kentico being blocked by Chrome.

About two years ago, Google decided to begin phasing out the use of NPAPI plugins in order to enhance Chrome's security, speed, stability...blah, blah, blah. As luck would have it, Microsoft's Silverlight plugin is used by Kentico for certain features.

So if you're using Kentico in Chrome, you'll simply need to click the yellow "Plug-in blocked" icon in the address bar of Chrome (see the complete explanation) and select "Always allow plug-ins on [this website]."
