Uploading to Our
This document shows you how to upload your package to Our and share it with the world.
To get started you first need to have an account on Our. Don't have an account? Head on over to the site and register.
Our uses a karma system where you get positive karma for answering forum posts, etc. To limit spam you will need to earn a little bit of karma before you can upload a package. Otherwise you can reach out to the Umbraco support team, who can help you out.
Creating your package
Before you can upload your package, you first have to create your package. Read over the Creating a Package article.
Uploading the package to Our
To get started head over to your profile page. It will tell you on this page if you have enough karma to upload your package, if you do then click
You may notice if you followed the Creating a Package document that a lot of this information has already been entered. This isn't automatically pulled from the package file and will need to be entered again.
The form will save each page as you go and the package won't become live until you finish the process and mark it live on the final page.
There is currently a bug that will stop you from seeing the saved packages in the list. Check out this PR for progress.

Setting an image to current will overwrite the setting that was made in Umbraco when creating the package zip.
