    Failed to create package

    I'm trying to create a package of my first umbraco website (4.7.1.1) but when I click on the "Publish" button I get the message "Save Failed - check your umbraco log". The log file contains the following information:

    CreatedPackage.cs System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.     at umbraco.cms.businesslogic.web.DocumentType.ToXml(XmlDocument xd)     at umbraco.cms.businesslogic.packager.CreatedPackage.Publish()

    Can anyone translate this for me and explain what is wrong? :0)

    TIA

    David

    Hi David

    I remember having seen this before on earlier versions as well...

    Have you filled in all the meta data like author etc.? If I remember correctly it sometimes won't create the package if these fields are missing.

    Otherwise perhaps start over and see if it works by taking a piece of the time if the package is going to consist of many items and files etc.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    /Jan

    Thanks Jan for such a quick response. You are correct I have lots of pages with blank Meta data - so I'll complete that.

    I have just successfully created a package on a blank umbraco install using one of the starter kits.

    Will get back soon with the result.

    Regards

    David

    No joy with the Meta data tags.

    Also made sure all the content pages were published (seen this in another posting)

    so I'm going to start again :0(

    I had a similar problem and started again.  I had managed to create 3 versions, but when I went to create version 4 I could not publish, I can save, but the Save and Publish button dissappears. I am using 4.7.1. I have had this happen before with another package I was making.  The difference between version 3 and version 4 was that I removed two attached master pages.

    I used Firefox instaed of Chrome and the button was not hidden so I could save it.
