    Error When Attempting to Create Root Content

    Umbraco 7.0.4. Polyglot 2.00.

    After I installed Polyglot, it appears I can no longer create content at the root. That is, when I either right click "Content" or click the ellipsis to the right of "Content", I get an error rather than see the menu that would allow me to create content. The stack trace mentions Polyglot.


    The error is "Failed to retreive data for a node's menu -1" (also note that "retreive" should be spelled "retrieve"). Based on the stack trace, it originated from "Dimi.Polyglot.Web.Backoffice.MenuCustomisation.ContentTreeController_MenuRendering".

    As a workaround, I created the content under and existing node, then moved it to under the root. However, I am now unable to change the order of the root nodes.

    Hi Nicholas,

    Sorry about this problem and thanks for letting me know. I guess that use of Polyglot for Umbraco 7 has just started to pick up now, so the bug had not been reported before. I have corrected it in the newly released version 2.02. Please let me know if that works for you.

    Please note that the package may start returning errors after the upgrade. In that case, "touching" the web.config will resolve the issue.

    By the way, it seems that the "retreive" typo does not come from the Polyglot package. I have searched through the entire solution and it isn't there.

    Best regards,

    That was fast! Thanks, the new version appears to have fixed the issue.

    Also, I suspect the "retreive" typo is part of Umbraco itself. I'll see if I can hunt it down.
