I've been using @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoTemplatePage to build my canonical like so <link rel="canonical" href="httpsP@HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.Host@CurrentPage.Url" runat="server" id="canonical" />, but either v8 doesn't have UmbracoTemplatePage anymore or it's moved. If it's moved can someone point me to where it is now. If it's gone, could you suggest how I get the current page's url?
<link rel="canonical" href="httpsP@HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.Host@CurrentPage.Url" runat="server" id="canonical" />
I'm a day into my first v8 project. Gotta say I'm perplexed at the lack of documentation available. It's cool if you're going to change stuff. Just have a page somewhere that says, this used to work, now it's like this. That's all I need. I've been struggling to find v8 documentation. If you've got a bead on where I can find some good documentation on moving from v7 to v8 I'd really appreciate a link.
Hey there Ben, make sure to have a look at the documentation statuspage: https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/v8documentation
If you look at the template we give you when you create it, you'll see:
@using ContentModels = Umbraco.Web.PublishedModels;
Layout = null;
Note: My document type is called Testers, hence the Testers model name in there.
UmbracoViewPage is nothing new, we've had that in Umbraco for years. I think it was also possible to have a typed version like here (UmbracoViewPage<ContentModels.Testers>).
You're able to remove the type as well if you want: @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoViewPage.
In both cases, you can then use @Model.Url to get the URL of the "CurrentPage" (Model). Not much else has changed, let's hope you find your way a little bit better from this starting point.
Shannon also spoke about the v8 changes recently and his slides are here, they could come in helpful: https://shazwazza.com/media/1032/uduf-2019.pdf
Many thanks @SebastiaanJanssen!
Hi Sebastiaan :)
Maybe i missed something, but how can i get my root node (Frontpage) out as a model? :)
In v7 i could do
var rootNode = Model.Content.Site().OfType<Frontpage>();
But that is not an option anymore :)
Instead of Model.Content.Site() try Model.Root()
Hi Frans :)
Yeah i have done it with Model.Root() but the problem with Model.Root is that i does not give me the possibility to do this,
var widgetImageGallery = rootNode.widgetImageGallery;
I have to do this,
var widgetImageGallery = rootNode.Value<IEnumerable<IPublishedContent>>("widgetImageGallery");
The .OfType<FrontPage> is gone many places, and i can't find a replacement for it :(
What I always do is:
Frontpage frontpage = new Frontpage(Model.Root());
You could also use Model.Root() as Fronpage but I have to update Rosalyn to be able to use Modelsbuilder for that one
Model.Root() as Fronpage
It works with
var rootNode = Model.Root() as Frontpage;
Thanks alot! :)
Just wondering with the document type model name that never resolves so we don't get any autocomplete on Model. is there a way to wire that up?
Do you use modelsbuilder? And if so in what mode?
Autocomplete doesn't work in purelive mode since models only exist runtime.
I would strongly advice looking in to app data mode or, if you always use visual studio, use the modelsbuilder api.
