    Update Overwrights Dashboard.config

    Sorry if this has been asked before.....

    We have a couple extensions we have built in Umbraco. In the Dashboard.config file, we have settings like the one below. If the user installs an update from Umbraco (i.e. ver 7.1 to 7.2), the Dashboard.config file is overwritten and we have to manually add the settings back in. How do we prevent this from occurring?

    Hi Graham

    How did you do an upgrade? During upgrade you have to merge Dashboard.config

    This absolutely won't help you now, but Umbraco 8 introduces dashboard definitions via package manifest, and remove the dashboard.config file completely. Something to look forward to...

    Thanks for the info. That sounds like what we will need.
