    Get parent pageName or field from parent page/node?

    I am not very experienced with Umbraco so please bare with me, this is about my 2/3 build;

    I have a page called About us with sub pages called History, Our Story, where to find us, etc.

    On the About Us page the title of the page comes from Field("title") or .pageName, on the subsequest pages I want to also use the "title" from the About Us page as well as the title from the current sub page, like so:

    Parentpage.Field("title") - CurrentPage.Field("title")

    How do I do this using razor?

    Thanks
    Simon

    Hi Simon,

    If you want to have the Current page name using the field title you can just do something like this

    if(Model.HasValue("title")){
    Model.title 
    }
    else{
    Model.Name
     } 

    or 

    var titlePage = Model.HasValue("title")? Model.title : Model.Name; 
    @titlePage

    for the parent name

    Model.Parent.Name or 
    var parentName = Model.Parent.HasValue("title")? Model.Parent.title : Model.Parent.Name;
    @parentName

    If I try and use the code you have mentioned in my umbraco template I get the following error:

    <h1 class="page-title">
                        @{
                            var parentTitle = Model.Parent.HasValue("title")? Model.Parent.title : Model.Parent.Name;
                        }
                        @parentTitle
                    </h1>
    

    CS0119: 'Umbraco.Core.Models.ContentExtensions.Parent(Umbraco.Core.Models.IMedia)' is a 'method', which is not valid in the given context

    I have tried using the @Model bit before and I got the same issues; Am I missing a key bit of information or library?

    Hang on are you using this code in a template or in a cshtml file ?

    If you are using it in a template you need to wrap the code like this

    <umbraco:Macro runat="server" language="cshtml">
    @using umbraco.MacroEngines; @inherits umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicNodeContext
    @{
    var parentTitle = Model.Parent.HasValue("title")? Model.Parent.title : Model.Parent.Name;
    @parentTitle
    }
    </umbraco:Macro>

    OK, So I need to use a partial view macro in Umbraco to display code like this? Is that correct?

    I am using Umbraco 6.1.6 and asp.Net MVC + Razor.

    I just need a way to show a field form the parent-page on the child page, whether this be in my template or in a partial view. :) Thanks!

    Ive put this code in a partial view but it errors as below

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage
    @if(!Model.Parent != null){
        <h1>@Model.Parent.Name</h1>
    }
    

    Operator '!' cannot be applied to operand of type 'method group'

    If anyone's looking to do this, I found Model.Parent.Name wouldn't work, but Model.Content.Parent.Name would
