    Extending package to content usage?

    Hi Rolf,

    Firstly what a great package you have created! Thanks so much.

    Do you have any plans to extend to content usage? e.g. if a node is referenced by another node?

    Thanks, Ally

    Hi Ally!

    Thank you for your feedback. No plans to extend it at this moment, sorry.

    Media Content Usage uses the Umbraco Relations API and creates "helper" relations between Media nodes and Content nodes.

    Sometimes these sort of relations for Content are already used, I know we use them for multi-language sites to relate different Content nodes with different languages (the "relate document on copy" relations type).

    What kind of use cases do you see, eg what would you like to know about the relations in a Content node?
    Do you use properties that have data types "Multinode treepicker" or "Content picker"?

    There is also a beginning of a discussion on github, about relations in general in Umbraco, which this package initiated:
    https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/pull/453

    /Rolf

    Hi Rolf,

    No worries, I was able to download your source and extend to my needs.I didn't know much about relations before so this has been a great learning experience.

    We have content nodes that link to other content nodes using a multinode-picker. The site has a lot of content nodes and it just helps with keeping up with the maintenance and keeping an overview of whats linked to what.

    Once I re-factor my code I'd be happy to share with you should you ever decide to extend.

    Thanks, Ally

    Hi Rolf,

    Any plans to make this work with grid components? For example when you make a custom component that uses a media picker. If I just include the grid field id in the web.config setting it doesn't seem to work. I guess the field parser could be a little extended to check all id's in the json and figure out which ones are media.
