    A - Z autofolders

    Hi all. 

    I want the following structure

    - films (alias = films)
    - A-Z ( do i need to create a doc for this ) 
    - film ( alias - film)

    ie mydomain.com/films/s/starwars

    probably a dumb question, but i can't find any example of the autofolder using A-Z. 

    How should i set out my autofolders.config

     

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <Settings>
        <FolderProviders>
            <FolderProvider alias="DateFolder"
                    assembly="/bin/AutoFolders"
                    type="AutoFolders.Providers.DateFolderProvider" 
                    TruncatedFolderUrl="folder-1/folder-2/newsitems"
                    rootFolder="//node[@level = 2]">
                <Property alias="FolderDocType">DateFolder</Property>
                <Property alias="DayFormat">dd</Property>
                <Property alias="MonthFormat">MM</Property>
                <Property alias="YearFormat">yyyy</Property>
            </FolderProvider>  
    
             <FolderProvider alias="AlphaFolder"
                    assembly="/bin/AutoFolders"
                    type="AutoFolders.Providers.AlphaFolderProvider" >
                <Property alias="FolderDocType">DateFolder</Property>
                <Property alias="UseUppercase">true</Property>
            </FolderProvider>  
    
        </FolderProviders>
        <DocTypes>
            <DocType alias="film" folderProvider="AlphaFolder"/>
        </DocTypes>
    </Settings>

    Jep, you nedd to create a document type for the autofolders.

     

    You have specified the AlphaFolder as your FolderProvider. This means this code is used:

    <FolderProvider alias="AlphaFolder"
                   
    assembly="/bin/AutoFolders"
                   
    type="AutoFolders.Providers.AlphaFolderProvider" >
         
    <Property alias="FolderDocType">DateFolder</Property>
         
    <Property alias="UseUppercase">true</Property>
    </FolderProvider>

    The property called FolderDocType is set to "DateFolder". This means that this is the document type that will be created as the autofolder.

    So you need to create a document type called "DateFolder", and remember to allow the "film"-document type to be a child of the DateFolder.

     

    Hope this helps, otherwise write again :)
