    Nested content is empty

    Hi I have a nested content called "footers" on my "Home node". If retrieve the "footers" by:

    var stamdata = Model.AncestorsOrSelf("home").First();
    

    and loop them by;

    var listofFooters = stamdata.Value<IEnumerable<IPublishedContent>>("Footers");
    

    i get a null

    however in my Visual debug it says: count2 and i can view the content.

    I can also get all the other values from "Home".

    My page declaration is:

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoViewPage
    

    This worked in Umbraco 7xxx but not in Umbraco 8. Do i really need to supply the Home model to my footer?

    Hi Jonas

    Can you check that property alias is exactly "Footers"? It should be exactly like in Umbraco and it's case sensitive.

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Jonas, can you show the content section now? How many items are in nested content property?

    Is it one or few ones?

    If Home is your top node, and you're using ModelsBuilder (which I strongly recommend), then you could do this

    var home = Model.Root() as Home;
    
    if(home.Footers != null & home.Footers.Any()){
       foreach (var footer in home.Footers)
       {
           @footer.Name
       }
    }

    Hi Jonas,

    If anyone's curious why it didn't work in the first place: nested content returns IPublishedElement in v8.

    stamdata.Value<IEnumerable<IPublishedElement>>("Footers")
    

    would have worked.

    Cheers!

    Guido
