    Use without month folders (edited)

    Sorry, I couldn't edit the other thread.

    Is there a way for me to use without the month folders?
    For example:

    - 2013
        - article-name.aspx
        - article-name2.aspx
    - 2012
        - huh-name.aspx
        - fun-name.aspx

    Hi John

    I'm not sure - but I think that you might be able to change the configuration of the simple foldeprovider in the /config/autofolders.config file by uncommenting the property element containing the year format. I have not tested this myself though.

    Remember to touch the web.config file or recycle the app pool after you make the change.

    Hope the above makes sense. Otherwise let me know.

    I just tried with a provider looking like this

    <folderProvider alias="DateFolderProvider_year" assembly="/bin/AutoFolders" type="AutoFolders.Providers.DateFolderProvider">
      <property alias="YearFormat">yyyy</property>

    But it still creates the month folder.

    And yes, I did touch the web.config :)

    Hmm...guess that it's probably not possible without modifying the source then... if anyone has the skills here it is :)

    It's not possible to do at the moment, currently it suports YYYY/MM as the shortest it will do. If you want to modify the source, the default branch only runs on the old schema. We submitted a patch for this when we updated AutoFolders to work with the new schema, you can grab it here: if you apply that, then you'll have the most up to date version!

    It shouldn't be too complicated to get it to do just the year from what I can remember of the source when we updated it.
