    Can't see any opencalais data type in 6.1.3

    I tried to install it from the package manager in the admin section and this crashed my site since the package comes with an old version of the newtonsoft.json dll (requires at least 4.5 but comes with 3 I think).

    So, I installed it locally from the zip online. I've put my key in, restarted the site but the datatype of opencalaistag is not showing up in the property picker.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Simon

    Hi Simon,

    Apologies for the issues you've come across. For the site crashing issue I thought the Package search in the developer section would have been clever enough to pick packages suitable for the version you're on hence why the "current version" wasn't the most up to date package.

    As for the missing datatype another apology is in order, I had to recreate the package recently and obiviously missed this out. I have updated the package so if you were to install the latest version you should be up and running.

    But given all that has been added is the DataType declaration, if you follow the steps below you should be so

    1. In the developer section and right click on DataTypes
    2. Enter "Auto Tags" as the name and click create.
    3. The Property editor should be set to Umbraco Usercontrol Wrapper and then hit saveSave
    4. Leave the Database datatype as ntext
    5. Set the usercontrol dropdown to ~/usercontrols/OpenCalaisAutorag/AutoTags.ascx
    6. Save
    7. Done
    I hope this helps and apologies for any inconvienience

    hi Rich, thanks for that. Works a treat.

    Bit of a newbie to umbraco but the next stage in this I suppose is consuming those tags to signpost related content. I need to read the docs a bit more.

    Regards, Simon

    Great to hear! We've all got to start somewhere :). Regarding the retrieval of related content this package hooks into the Umbraco tagging table which means there are already methods in existance for the retrieval of related content, for example:


    Hope this helps
