    DTGE - There are no allowed document types available


    I've just installed a clean umbraco v8.2 solution and want to test some things out with de DocTypeGridEditor so i've installed this via Nuget.

    I've created a new folder under Document Types and added a new Doctype Without template. After this i added the doctype alias in allowedDocTypes array in de package.manifest in the app_plugins/doctypeGridEditor folder an selected the doctypegrideditor to be selected in a gridpage.

    The problem is when i want to add an item to the grid. I get the message: "There are no allowed document types available for creating content here. You must enable these in Document Types within the Settings section, by editing the Allowed child node types under Permissions."

    enter image description here

    Am i missing something in my configuration or is DTGE broken in Umbraco v8.2?

    Kind regards, Erik

    Hi Erik,

    The DTGE documenttypes require the option "Is an Element type" to be checked on the "Permissions" tab of the documenttype, just like nested content.

    Do they show up when you check this option?

    Best regards,

    This is not fixed, even after allowing the doc type as element. What will be the issue still here, below is the manifest config

    { "name": "Doc Type", "alias": "docType", "view": "/AppPlugins/DocTypeGridEditor/Views/doctypegrideditor.html", "render": "/AppPlugins/DocTypeGridEditor/Render/DocTypeGridEditor.cshtml", "icon": "icon-item-arrangement", "config": { "allowedDocTypes": [ "articlesCarousel" ], "nameTemplate": "", "enablePreview": true, "viewPath": "/Views/Partials/Grid/Editors/DocTypeGridEditor/", "previewViewPath": "/Views/Partials/Grid/Editors/DocTypeGridEditor/Previews/", "previewCssFilePath": "", "previewJsFilePath": "" } }

    articlesCarousel is the nested doc type.

    is their any config do i am missing here..

    kindly suggest any help would be much appreciated. i am running with v8.6.4

    Hi Gurumurthy,

    I am facing exactly same issue. Have you got any solution on this issue. Please let me know.

    There is no additional configuration available. {{tab.label || tab.alias}}
