    Umbraco Grid + DTGE + v8

    I tried running Umbraco Grid and stumped as we have been using DTGE for flexible dynamic templates. How can we achieve it with Umbraco 8? This is important piece of flexibility on U7.

    Looking forward for some suggestions?

    I use nested content in v8 :| .

    I used to use Stacked content, but that isn't v8 ready like DTGE. It doesnt look like DTGE will be updtaed for v8, and grid V2 doesnt look like its coming any time soon.

    Good "design tools" for v8 aren't really available at this time.

    Thanks - Is it Nested Content in Grid or without Grid?

    ok - That's not flexible enough for clients who have better experience on v7. I think i will wait till we hear some tools or more feedback from HQ on this item. It's a clear way and easy to use for editors.

    I agree, but i worry that nothing is coming out of the blue as of now. But maybe we're wiser after codegarden.

    sure - It will be in pipeline.

    That is my worry :(

    · There is no pipeline for DTGE - they will most likely not update it for V8.

    · There hasn't been any public work done on grid V2 since codegarden 2018

    · The is no timeline for Stacked content for V8.

    Hi all,

    during the retreat this year (https://our.umbraco.com/community/umbraco-retreat/) there will be a discussion about grid v2. See this message: https://twitter.com/thechiefunicorn/status/1123205074006810624

    So hopefully it can be used in version 8.1 or 8.2...

    Try to keep you posted,

    Jeffrey

    Looking good. Especially the part about HQ getting on board to finish it fast :)

    Hi Jeffrey,

    Thanks for the updates. We have been showing DTGE flexibility for Blog and General Content pages to clients. And they really liked this for editors as it is more like WYSIWYG. We can try out Stacked or Nested etc but they still have limited flexibility.

    So, for us this is minimum to move to v8 or recommend v8. Bit of a show-stopper as no plugin is around that can meet this requirements.

    Views welcome?

    Finally we have the answer in Umbraco Roadmap. Looking forward to it. https://umbraco.com/products/roadmap/

    Block Editor A new back-office editor that handles common page structure editing in a simple and intuitive way. The main concept of the editor is to manage list of blocks that represents a web page's structure, where each block is both a collection of content and a way to configure that collection to be rendered. Each content block and configuration is defined by an Element Type to make administrating and editing with the new Block editor consistent.

    This editor aims to be an alternative to the popular editors in Umbraco version 7 such as the Grid, Stacked Content, LeBlender and Doc Type Grid Editor.

    Not a very comforting answer though, but in line with the one from Codegarden.

    An answer that pretty much says "not in 2019".

    From an implementers view i have a hard time seeing how an improved RTE is more important, but then again i'm not core...

    Hi Soren,

    Thanks. Does it work for v8.1 too?

    I will review and can assist on this project as required by you.

    Wanted to give another #h5yr to Søren for the DTGE. I am using nested content in the grid on Umbraco Cloud 8.1 and it has made for some very powerful and flexible functionality for our editors.

    I found a couple of gotchas along the way, so I've written up a recipe of how I used it to implement a video carousel:

    Hope this helps!

    Just to confirm, we have built couple of projects on Umbraco v8 using Grid and all works as expected.

    Cheers,

    Hi Guys,

    Has anyone been able to use a standard Umbraco Grid inside nested content since Umbraco 8?

    I am having a bit of trouble what to pass into the @Html.GetGridHtml

    It is expecting IPublishedContent and my nested content is IPublishedElement.

    We have a current project in U8 that uses the DTGE - Our.Umbraco.DocTypeGridEditor for Umbraco 8 (we use v1.0.0). We have had no problems.

    Hi Marshall,

    So you can include the DTGE within nested content and use it in replace of the Umbraco core GridView?

    I did actually try to install this and have a play around but didn't manage to get it to work.

    I tried installing from the zip and then nuget both times when I checked the data types there was nothing in there.

    I also touched the web config to restart the app since I know some of this stuff gets cached. Still no joy. I ended up just uninstalling.

    Has anyone else had these problems?

    Hi David,

    Do you mean nesting a grid? I.e. having a nested content doctype that contains a grid as a property? We have not done that, no.
