    How do I get it to work?

    I'm using umbraco 4.0.3 with Autofolders 2.0.2.  It's running on IIS on Windows XP.  I'm testing things locally on my machine to make sure I understand how stuff works, then I set it up again on a Windows 2003 development server.

    I have my structure as follows:

    - Homepage
    -- News (Name=News Area, Alias=newsArea)
    ---News Item (Name=News Item, Alias=newsItem)

    I can create News Items under the News Area with no problems.  Now I want to organize my news items into subfolders by date and thought Autofolders would do the trick for me.  Here's my autofolders.config file:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
        <folderProvider alias="DateFolderProvider_Simple"
          <property alias="MonthFormat">MM</property>
          <property alias="YearFormat">yyyy</property>
        <autoFolder docType="newsItem"

    Note: I've tried using both Document Type Name and the Document Type Alias and neither is working for me.

    When I create a new News Item under my News Area - it creates the new page exactly as it did prior to installing Autofolders.

    What am I missing?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Config looks ok, did you try restarting the app (either via iis, or by touching the web.config) to make sure the new action handlers for this package gets registered?


    Let us know how it goes.

    Ok, I restarted IIS. Now when I publish an News Item it doesn't show up at all in the Content Tree, but it acts like it published just fine, no error messages.

    Jennifer, try refreshing the content tree and also check that 'newsArea' nodes can be created under 'newsArea' nodes.

    Getting warmer!  It's creating the date folders and putting the news items under them, but there are duplicates.

    ----news item
    ----news item

    It seems to be working now.  I deleted all the News and started over. No more duplicates.

    Thank you both so much!!!!!!
