    Document Type - Content - Blog in Fanoe starter kit


    I am going through the Fanoe starter kit. I noticed the Document Type Blog Post Repository.

    This DT doesn't appear under any other "Allow child" DT. Therefore, I don't know how to create a new Content item based on that DT. However, there is a Content item created called Blog.

    I am wondering how this Content item was created? Any ideas.

    Hi Bilal

    Yes, what has happened here, is initially the Document Type 'Blog Post Repository' was allowed to be created under the Home Document Type.

    The 'Blog' node was created.

    And then the ability to create further 'Blog Post Repository' folders was removed, by deleting the permission to create items of this type under the Home document type.

    This is done to prevent editors from accidentally creating multiple content items of a particular type when there only needs to be one, created once, for the site.

    In this example, the code assumes there is a single Blog Post Repository, and therefore prevents other's from being created accidentally.

    You could enable the creation of further Blog Post Repositories in the future, perhaps one for each year, and tweak the code accordingly...

    It would be cool to have this written somewhere (say within a blog post of the fanoe starter site)... I spent almost three hours going back and forth trying to figure out how this was done. Went to the point of installing another version to see if I screwed something up. Anyway... glad to see I was not the only one tearing hair out.

    Thanks Marc. It makes more sense now. I just starting to learn Umbraco and I was trying to understand the settings on DT and other related items and I wasn't sure how such thing could happen.

    It's clear now. Thanks.

    I googled this for hours until I tried "fanoe blog content" and got this as the first result. There needs to be some @%! documentation with this starter kit, especially since it's an "official" package. I wasted way too many hours trying to figure out how this was done so I could repeat the layout. Love Umbraco!
