This package allows a developer to create a clean tree structure based on multiple root nodes, without having to select a shared parent node or include items that aren't relevant to the content editor.
This package was built against Umbraco 7.2.1, but is supported across all current versions of Umbraco 7.
Mr N Picker is available from Our Umbraco, NuGet, or as a manual install directly from GitHub.
You can find a downloadable package, along with a discussion forum for this package on the Our Umbraco site.
To instal from NuGet, run the following command in your instance of Visual Studio.
PM> Install-Package MrNPicker
Just download and add the package to your
App_Plugins folder. When you open your instance of Umbraco you will be able to create a new data type based on Mr N Picker.
Using Mr N Picker is simple. Set up a new data type and select the
Mayfly.MrNPicker type from within Umbraco's Developer section. After your selection, you will be presented with the following options for your data type, which are as follows:
Once this data type is set up, you will be able to add the data type as a property to a document type. When an instance of that document type is created/accessed, the editor will see the resulting multi-root node picker with their rendered tree.
To raise a new bug, create an issue on the GitHub repository. To fix a bug or add new features, fork the repository and send a pull request with your changes. Feel free to add ideas to the repository's issues list if you would to discuss anything related to the package.
