    Multi Node Tree Picker 2 Filtering Issue

    I am currently working on a project where I need to include a Multi Node Tree Picker, yet restrict what the user can select. Looking at the object, there is a field "Allow Items Of Type" where I need to input the alias of the document type that I wish to allow the user to select.

    The issue lies in the fact that this functionality does not seem to be doing anything, as I am still able to select whichever item I want, regardless of what is input in the previously mentioned field. I have even tried to use to dictate this negatively, by inputting what I do NOT want the user to be able to select (by inputting "!" before the alias name), however I was met with the same result.

    Any help regarding this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi Daryl

    Can you check, please, what property editor are you using on the page?

    Because it can be a situation when you edit a field "Allow Items Of Type" for wrong property editor.

    Hi Alex,

    The property Editor is Umbraco.MultiNodeTreePicker2

    Thank you for replying

    Still seeing this issue!

    I've set up MNTP 2 to allow items of documenttype "speaker", but I am allowed to pick anything under a "speaker" node as well, ("talks").. Is this a known issue?

    I just stumbled across the same issue. I think it may be related to if you are using list view. When i have it enabled, it doesn't work correctly, but turning it off fixed it.

    Same here, was pulling my hair out until I disabled the list view for the doc types I was selecting. Works, but a fix would be nice.

    Just found an open issue on it too.

    I too stumbled across this isue with the MNTP2. When you set it up to only allow items of a certain documenttype, that works, but it also allows all children of that document type to be selected, which can be a different kind of document type.

    I want the MNTP to only allow the selected document type to be selected.

    Anyone have a suggestion?

    Seeing the same issue here. I have Category and SubCategory and it allowing me to select SubCategory as a Category which isn't what I want.

    Hi all, I am having a slightly different problem.

    I can select two things, the doctype that I am allowing (I don't have any child doctypes under that one) but I can also select the current node where the property is.

    Aside from that, I can't select anything else in the tree.

    The problem site is running on 7.12.0, but I have a functional one running on 7.11.0

    Thanks in advance,
