MCMS Site Deployment API does not have a method to export Resource Galleries. Only resources (and related galleries) which are bound to an exported posting can be exported using the API.

Especially the second problem – normal postback caused by ASP.NET controls – was not properly solved as it required to do the modification on every template file. Using an HttpModule avoids this overhead. Here […]
