I am building a uSkinned themed website, the Synergy theme specifically, and my client is requesting a sitewide pod of which I would like the content to be a Partial or MacroPartial that I can edit from within my Visual Studio project/solution.
I have tried creating a Code Pod with some placeholder HTML inside and then tried to find that code within my solution, thinking in may be buried in some Umbraco folder, but was unsuccessful. Any ideas, or is this even possible?
If there is a better, more standard approach to putting "pod" like divs on either the right or left column for the whole website I am open to suggesions. Thanks in advance.
What do you mean "pod"?
Hi Alex. Maybe my question is too specific to uSkinned templates. uSkinned recommends asking questions here. They have what are called "pods" on the umbraco side, which are basically like macro partials that content managers can create and edit without doing any of the coding. Here is an example of a contact pod on the Umbraco side:
and on the website, the contact pod is on the bottom right:
One possible solution, which I have not gotten to work yet, is to allow Macros within the rich text editor of the pod itself. I created a MacroPartial, but it is not showing up when prompted to select a Macro:
So you have created a Macro connected to a MacroPartial, and then allowed the richtext editor to insert Macros, but your new Macro doesn'nt show up in the list? Is this correct?
Can you make sure that you have ticked the checkbox "Use in rich text editor and the grid" on your Macro. See image example:
Other than that, it sounds like you have done everything right and using pods+macros sounds like a good plan!
Please let us know how it goes!
That is exactly what I was trying to do...and your solution worked Dennis, thanks!
Awesome! Glad to help Mike! :)
Have a great day!!

Thanks for the response. I thought the contact form was more for general product questions, but I will keep it in mind for questions in the future. My website is coming along nicely!
