    I would like to use LeBlender in my Umbraco 8 project (Looks like this would save me a lot of programming time) However, I can't make it work:

    Server Error in '/' Application. Boot failed: Umbraco cannot run. See Umbraco's log file for more details.

    -> Umbraco.Core.Exceptions.BootFailedException: Boot failed.

    -> System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException: Could not load all types from "Lecoati.LeBlender.Extension, Version=1.0.9.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" due to LoaderExceptions, skipping: .

    Does anyone knows if maybe there is a better idea for v8 than using LeBlender (and provide examples) and/or if I could download the code and maybe try to migrate it from v7 to v8?

    I also read this https://github.com/Lecoati/LeBlender/issues/105

    Please give me your thoughts? Thanks!

    From my understanding, LeBlender isn't compatible with V8.

    One package that does work for V8 is this one:

    https://www.nuget.org/packages/Our.Umbraco.DocTypeGridEditor/

    Make sure you use version 1.0.0 or higher.

    It's a little different from LeBlender but does provide a similar outcome, i.e. being able to configure more complex blocks to be dropped into a Grid layout. It uses document types to achieve this, similar to Nested Content.

    You can find some useful info for how to install and configure it here:

    https://github.com/skttl/umbraco-doc-type-grid-editor

    In particular, the developer's guide is handy:

    https://github.com/skttl/umbraco-doc-type-grid-editor/blob/develop/docs/developers-guide.md

    The umbraco package page is here:

    https://our.umbraco.com/packages/backoffice-extensions/doc-type-grid-editor

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Chris! So far I was able to make LeBlender for V8, but not as perfect as it works in 7 (I still need to work in order to Render it in the content section as I don't see it yet).

    Let me take a look into your links, maybe I don't have to put that much effort and I can just use the one you suggest, thanks so much!

    I don't know what could I be doing wrong, I installed the Nuget package, added the confguration in the JS file, but I cannot see any options for a grid row or anything different in the backoffice. What could I be missing?

    You may need to restart the application (e.g. edit the web.config to force a restart) and clear your browser cache for the changes to show up, after you've changed the configuration.

    Also, for a doctype to be allowed as a content block in the grid, it needs to be an Element type - you can set this on the Permissions tab of the doctype.
