    No RankOne tab in dashboard

    Hi, I've installed RankOne but there doesn't seem to be a RankOne tab in the Content section. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hi! Did you install it through nuget or through the Umbraco backend?

    If you installed it through nuget, you'll have to manually add it to the Dashboard.config file. A how to can be found here

    Hi

    I installed it through Umbraco. I've tried uninstalling and trying again but it still doesn't seem to appear.

    Thanks

    Could you check if the following xml is present in Dashboard.config (located in config directory)

    <section alias="RankOneSEODashboardSection">
      <areas>
        <area>content</area>
      </areas>
      <tab caption="RankOne - SEO">
        <control showOnce="true" addPanel="true" panelCaption="">
          /App_Plugins/RankOne/dashboards/SiteDashboard.html
        </control>
      </tab>
    </section>

    Hi, sorry, I'm an idiot who doesn't know much about these things. Where do I find the conifg directory to look for the Dashboard.config?

    Cheers

    Haha no worries.

    The Config directory usually is located at the root of your application/server. So you can access it through ftp/remote desktop on the production environment.

    Ah ok - slight problem - I'm running Umbraco through my browser. And I'm on a Mac. I'm guessing I need to download the Umbraco application somehow to achieve this?

    If Umbraco is running on a webserver, you can use a ftp client to access the files

    To resolve the issue of not transforming the dashboard.config file on nuget package install

    https://github.com/JcRichards1991/Our.Shield/tree/master/src/Our.Shield.Core/Transforms/Config

    The important part for the dashboard.config is having the following path within the nuget package "Transforms/config/dashboard.config.(un)install.xdt"

    For your Umbraco Package counterpart, on the last step of creating the package, you can provide actions, the following is an example of transforming the dashboard.config file:

    <Action runat="install" alias="addDashboardSection" dashboardAlias="SomeAlias">
      <section>
        <areas>
          <area>Content</area>
        </areas>
        <tab caption="Test Caption">
          <control>/Path/To/HTML/file</control>
        </tab>
      </section>
    </Action>
    
    • runat="install" : tells Umbraco to do these changes at startup after installing a package via package install wizard
    • alias="addDashboardSection" : tells Umbraco to transform the dashboard.config file
    • dashboardAlias="someAlias" : whatever you like

    Hope this helps.
