    Getting the UKFest sample to work

    Hi all,
    I'm trying to build a custom section for Umbraco 7. I have found the learning curve to be fairly steep, and the documentation to be fairly hard to find (most resources are small fragments of a solution, assuming deep knowledge of both Umbraco and AngularJS).

    I finally stumpled upon this

    which seems to be a fully functioning sample, showcasing a lot of the different stuff needed to make a complete backoffice section.

    Some stuff have changed since the sample was created - so I have fixed the manifest (found in the pull request), and changed this:

    var node = CreateTreeNode(person.Id.ToString(), queryStrings, person.Name, "icon-user", false);

    To this:

    var node = CreateTreeNode(person.Id.ToString(), id, queryStrings, person.Name, "icon-user", false);

    I followed the instruction in the

    "to install, simply copy the app_code and app_plugins folder to the root of your site, run the people.sql against the current database, and finally restart your website."

    But it is not entirely clear to me what I should be seeing? I was hoping for a custom section - but I can't see any IApplication code for that. Where should the TreeController appear?

    Any other similar resources on how to make custom backend stuff for Umbraco 7 would also be highly appreciated by the way.

    Thanks. I have fixed the URL's, but I wasn't seeing any errors before (and I still don't).

    Maybe this is obvious, but.....: How will the plugin show itself once I get it working?

    What version of Umbraco are you using? Like I mentioned in the solution there is some heavy cache which you need to clear first.

    Ok, found it now. It was actually working, but neither the or the mentioned that this was integrated as a part of the "Settings" section...

    Anyway - thanks for your suggestions.

    On a related note. Has anyone noticed some missing pages in the ukfest package?


    Clicking on the drink/detox buttons is giving me a 404 on the following pages.

    apps_plugins/people/backoffice/peopletree/drink.html and detox.html at the same location.

    Looking in the github I notice these files aren't there either. What gives?

    @Shaun - I'm trying to do the same thing as you ... I've started making a list of steps here:

    Have you got any further than me yet?

    Hi Steve

    Regarding the angular JS Demo I think I got about as far as realising that the drink and detox html files were in the wrong place, and at one instance I did actually get them to amend the avatar on the user when clicked. I think that's as far as I got tho.

    I've popped the files from my build into bitbucket so you can have a play. I've not included the database, shout if you want it.

    In the end I pretty much gave up on the angular demo, and a very helpful dev pointed me at this, which I used to build my new custom section with tree.

    I can give you the code for that too, but it's for a client site, so I'd need to anonymise it first, hence no bitbucket. Again, shout if you need it.
