    Umbracpo v7.2 Doc Types lose inherited properties


    I'm using 7.2 RC on a project, and on a number of occasions I've created a Doc Type that's inheriting from a master Doc Type, then created a Content Item using that Doc Type.

    Then at some point (it seems random at the minute) the Doc Type loses all of the properties it inherited from the master Doc Type!

    If I export the Doc Type the XML is missing the <Master>MasterDocType</Master> element, even though in the GUI it's still showing under the Master Doc Type...

    Has anyone else has seen this with 7.2 and is it a bug or just something weird with my installation??

    I've seen this happen on v6 (and older) sites but worrying you are getting in in V7.2 - wonder if it was a last minute fix, worth trying the release now it's live?

    Suggesting we discuss the issue in the issue tracker - one question, though: when you write "at some point (it seems random at the minute)" does it mean... without you doing any changes to content types?

    A content type can show under another (they have a parent-child relationship) yet not be composed of that parent (thus not inheriting its tabs and properties). It is technically feasible, but the UI should prevent such situation from arising as it makes little sense.

    The pre-RTM versions (including RC I think) would let you create such a situation - but you'd have to explicitely uncheck the parent in the composition list. It should not happen "at some point" -> I'm really interested in what you might have done.

    Stephen fixed this and added details to the issue tracker:

    Read the last few comments to see how you can fix the problem if it already happened to you, there's a fixed umbraco.dll available on the issue so you can safely update your document types in the future.

    So, for us implementer types, if we're starting fresh with a new download of v.7.2, will it include the new dll or do we have to go fetch it before we do anything else (and if we do, will we avoid the problem entirely)?

    Or do we have to wait for v.7.2.1?

    The issue is apparently fixed in 7.2.1 ( but it seems like you still have to fix the inheritance in the database if upgrading from 7.2.0.
