Umbraco 9.x

DateFolders for umbraco 9 is available via nuget: https://www.nuget.org/packages/Infocaster.Umbraco.DateFolders/

This package creates Datefolders (year/month(/day)) for the specified doctype for Umbraco v8.2.x and automatically puts content pages in the correct datefolder bases on the specified date field . For umbraco 7 use v2 and older versions please use v1.4


- When you create a document with doctype "itemDocType", this package will automatically create year/month/day folders for it
- When you edit the "itemDateProperty", the document is automatically moved to the correct year/month/day folder
- Automatically cleans up empty year, month and day folders
- Orders the items in the year, month and dayfolders by "itemDateProperty" with every action


Add these keys/values to your appSettings section in the web.config:
- Key: "datefolders:ItemDocType" - the doctype alias to create datefolders for (e.g. "newsItem") - comma separated values are allowed for multiple doctype aliases
- Key: "datefolders:ItemDateProperty" - the property of the itemDocType to read the date from (e.g. "startDate") (don't add this key if you just want to use the document's create date)
- Key: "datefolders:DateFolderDocType" - the doctype to use for creating the year/month/day folders (e.g "DateFolder")
- Key: "datefolders:CreateDayFolders" - boolean indicating whether or not day folders should be created

- Key: "datefolders:OrderByDecending"  - boolean indicating sort order for date folders (default: false)
