Often, as a site developer, you need a place to store various site settings, a user friendly interface to manage them and API to access them from code.
Currently, the only possible options are to store them in separate tab in Homepage document, in special pages in tree, or in C# file.
However, uConfiguration was created to give another option. It adds a new tree node in the ‘Settings’ section called ‘Site Configuration’ and allows you to add useful, manageable sections such as the ability to add, move, edit, remove and sort.
In terms of accessing these, a simple API can be used to retrieve setting values in the code.
The plugin uses the same interface as ‘Document Type’ editor, with the difference that uConfiguration is a variant that is updated and improved.
The features of the plugin include:
At the moment, the plugin doesn't support following types: File upload, Grid layout, Image Cropper, Label and List view (as they did not provide much added value in this context).
