    What are exact steps for setting up AutoFolders?

    I am struggling to get the AutoFolders package working. I am not getting any errors messages and the setup I have implemented is below.

    Document Types

    • DateFolder: allowed child node types: DateFolder, News Page
    • News Page
    • Runway Homepage: allowed child node types: DateFolder, News Page, Runway Textpage
    • Runway Textpage

    Templates

    • DateFolder
    • News Page
    • Runway default templates

    Below is the code for autofolders.config

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <settings>
      <folderProviders>
        <folderProvider alias="DateFolderProvider_Simple"
                assembly="/bin/AutoFolders"
                type="AutoFolders.Providers.DateFolderProvider">
          <property alias="MonthFormat">MM</property>
          <property alias="YearFormat">yyyy</property>
        </folderProvider>

        <folderProvider alias="DateFolderProvider_Full"
                assembly="/bin/AutoFolders"
                type="AutoFolders.Providers.DateFolderProvider">
          <property alias="DayFormat">dd</property>
          <property alias="MonthFormat">MM</property>
          <property alias="YearFormat">yyyy</property>
          <property alias="DateField">MyReleaseDate</property>
        </folderProvider>

        <folderProvider alias="AlphaFolder"
               assembly="/bin/AutoFolders"
               type="AutoFolders.Providers.AlphaFolderProvider" >
          <property alias="UseUppercase">true</property>
        </folderProvider>
      </folderProviders>

      <autoFolders>
        <autoFolder docType="News Page"
                 folderProviderAlias="DateFolderProvider_Simple"
                 folderDocType="DateFolder"
                 />
      </autoFolders>
    </settings>

    Thanks in advance for any help, which will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Sean

    What happens when you create a document that should be put into an autofolder? Is the folder just not being created?

    Hi Jan

    Thank you for the response.  When I create a document, no folder is being created. The issue was due to the fact I was not using the correct reference for docType and folderDocType in autofolders.config

    • News Page -> NewsPage

    I decided to start over again, and re-install the Runway and AutoFolders package.  The first step from there was to create the following Document Types and Templates for the site I was working on

    • News Container (NewsContainer)
      • can be a child of Runway Homepage
    • News Page (NewsPage)
      • can be a child of News Container

    Then I set the autofolders.config to the following

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <settings>
     
    <folderProviders>
       
    <folderProvider alias="DateFolderProvider_Simple"
               
    assembly="/bin/AutoFolders"
               
    type="AutoFolders.Providers.DateFolderProvider">
         
    <property alias="MonthFormat">MM</property>
         
    <property alias="YearFormat">yyyy</property>
       
    </folderProvider>
      </folderProviders>

     
    <autoFolders>
       
    <autoFolder docType="NewsPage"
                 
    folderProviderAlias="DateFolderProvider_Simple"
                 
    folderDocType="NewsContainer"
                 
    />
     
    </autoFolders>
    </settings>

    Thereby whenever I created a News Page, autofolders (NewsContainer) would be generated as specified by DateFolderProvider_Simple
