    Nested macro issue in RTE


    I'm using Umbraco 7.1.4.

    I have a macro that allow a user to select a person and that person gets rendered in the RTE. So the person is a parameter (content picker) It uses a partial view macro file (razor).

    The partial view is really simple for now:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Macros.PartialViewMacroPage
    @{ var person = Umbraco.Content(Model.MacroParameters["person"]); }

    This works fine.

    I am trying to create another macro which renders all of the people in a certain category. I want this to be able to render in the RTE as well. This time the category is the parameter (content picker).

    In this view, I get all of the people then filter by category (excuse the code quality while I try to get this working, I'll clean it up later):

    @using Pcm.Web.Code.Helpers
    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Macros.PartialViewMacroPage
    var categoryId = Model.MacroParameters["personCategory"];
    var people = new List(Umbraco.Content((int)SpecialNode.People).Children);
    foreach (var person in people) {
    var categories = "," + person.GetPropertyValue("category") + ",";
    if (categories.Contains("," + categoryId + ",")) {
    var umbracoHelper = new UmbracoHelper(UmbracoContext.Current, person);
    @:THIS NEEDS FIXING FOR WITHIN THE RTE - see PersonTeamCategoryList.cshtml
    @:@umbracoHelper.RenderMacro("PersonTeam", new { person = person.Id.ToString() })

    This renders fine on the page, but in the RTE I get an error: Error loading Partial View script (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/PersonTeamCategoryList.cshtml)

    In the log, it says:

    2014-07-31 14:32:27,424 [61] WARN  umbraco.macro - [Thread 64] Error loading Partial View (file: ~/Views/MacroPartials/PersonTeamCategoryList.cshtml). Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: Cannot render a macro when there is no current PublishedContentRequest.

       at umbraco.macro.LoadPartialViewMacro(MacroModel macro)
       at umbraco.macro.renderMacro(Hashtable pageElements, Int32 pageId)

    This appears to be because PublishedContentRequest is null when rendered in the RTE.

    How can I fix this?
