    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.
