    Organizing already existing content

    Is it possible to organize already existing pages into folders?

    Yes. You can move the content to other places in the content-tree.

    By rightclicking on the node you can move it.

    There is a constraint: The node where you want to move it to, has to have set the documenttype as Allowed child node

    You can right mouse click on a node and select move.

    Thanks for answers,

    though this question was more related to AutoFolders project. As it allows to move child items in "Dates" folders like "Year/Month/Day".

    But it works (automatically) for new items, thinking of a way to auto move all already created content.

    My fault.

    Marius.

    Ohh right sorry :)  I've never used autofolder so I'm not sure what triggers the "action".  For a wild stab in the dark have you tried upublishing an item and republishing it?  That would work if the autofolders package triggers on the "Publish" event.  But I guess this would be tedious if there were lots of item you needed to move.

    Hi Marius,

    Currently AutoFolders does not support the re-organisation of existing content. However I will add this to my roadmap and may add it in the next release.

    You could try http://our.umbraco.org/projects/datefolder as an alternative. It has a fixed folder structure, but will move existing items.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Chirs,

    Sorry, I maybe too dumb for this  :)

    How to organize existing content?

    Do I need to republish all pages?

    Also there would be great some "step-by-step" help on config file, as many new change were.

    For example what is "truncatedFolderUrl" for?

    Hi Marius,

    I'll try to get round to writing more documentation, but never an exciting task.. so it moves down the todo list.

    To reorganise existing content you need to republish the pages. I'd advise you backup your DB before doing this as there's no 'undo' option.

    The "truncatedFolderUrl" allows you to ignore the real folder structure (e.g. domain.com/2009/11/25/blogitem.aspx) and use a simplier and flat structure (e.g. domain.com/blogitem.aspx). You can ignore this parameter if you're not using this functionality. There is a paragraph on this functionality on the project page.

    Cheers,

    Chris
