    Hi guys,

    I'm guessing this has been deprecated, there's an issue here with potentially relevant information

    I had a feeling it went with the new UDI converters, but, I hoped it was a mistake. Apparently not :(

    Hi guys,

    umbraco.macrocontainer not showing in drop down for creating new datatype in new version umbraco 7.9.2.

    we are using macro pickers in older version (7.7.2) effectively in application but unable to create for new version umrbaco 7.9.2. but still i can able to use the created macro containers which were migrated from older version(7.7.2). the issue is am unable to create new datatype as macro container/macro pickers due to the unavailability of macro container in datatype drop down.

    Please suggest better solution on this.

    Hi all,

    I had the same problem and I found a solution. You can add to the configuration file umbracoSettings.config new parameter <showDeprecatedPropertyEditors>true</showDeprecatedPropertyEditors> in <content> section.

    enter image description here

    Hi All,

    I have a scenario where am using macros within Template which is used all over the application.

    1.when we updated to new version 7.8 macro container is deprecated and can be resolved by enabling through config. since this datatype is made as obsolete and updated attribute to use IMacroService instead of macro container in the code level of Macropropertyeditor.cs file in property editors how can we able to implement IMacroService without changing more in the code level.

    Thanks, Yajamanam
