    Xpath filtering MultiNodeTreePicker

    For a project (running Umbraco 7.0.3) I want to use xPath to get the right folders pack.

    What i am trying to do:

    - Root
    -- slider 1
    --- slider item 1a
    --- slider item 2a
    -- slider 2
    --- slider item 1b
    --- slider item 1b

    At the Root I have a MultiNodeTreePicker datatype that picks the sliders (slider 1 or slider 2) document alias from the pages under the Root page. But It give's a empty tree and no errors.

    My XPath:


    When searching online I get something like (see below), but this kind of xPath is not working in Umbraco 7


    Hope someone know's how to deal with this, thanks!

    I think you need //


    I do this for ublogsy:


    This looks up the tree until it finds uBlogsyLanding, then it looks down from there to find uBlogsyContainerAuthor

    Probably overkill for you. Sorry, my xpath isnt the best.

    Hi, Anthony! Do you know will this work with entityResource.searchAll method from Umbraco Belle API?

    thanks, i've got it working yesterday, the same way as you suggest.

    the xPatch is only the start root, with the filter option underneath you can filter the document types of this startnode you want to be displayed.
