KanBo plugin content loader

Some KanBo plugins (like KanBo Outlook Add-in or Webparts) are equipped with a folder which contains their content. 


The content folder should be normally added to KanBo Extensions folder on your IIS site or Azure WebApp. The Extensions folder must contain plugin's .dll files and folders with content. 


Case when you would like to have this content folder loaded from a different directory is now possible with the Content Loader functionality.
