    Export config property editor

    Hey everyone,

    I am currently working on a project with Umbraco and I am kinda stuck at the moment. I am currently able to export and import document types. (Different from the default functionality). However, whenever there is a property editor that doesn't have a default instance (Like MultiNodeTreePicker2) it will crash because it can't find it.

    So, is there any way to get the MultiNodeTreePicker2 instance in the project where I export the documenttypes and then import it into my new project? Or to just export the values.

    Thanks in advance, Patrick de Mooij

    Hi Patrick,

    You could create a package with teh changes in it. if you go do developer section, packages, created packages. and right click then you can go through the options to create a package with the doctype and the datatypes it uses in it.

    if you save then 'publish' the package you will get a zip file, which contains the config you need to put the doc-type onto another site.

    Then on a new project you could install this package (as a Local Package where you get to pick the package file from disk).

    You could also use a package like uSync - which writes the configuration for datatypes/doctypes etc out to disk whenever you make a change. you can then move the usync folder between installations and all the settings will be imported / synced when you start the site up (there lots of other config options)

    Ah, thanks. Didn't know you get a xml when creating a package. That should be enough for me to figure all of this out.
