    Feedback: No context menu appearing for me

    Hello there,

    First off, I am very very happy to have found this :) I was in the process of changing a whole bunch of nodes by hand. So thank you very much for making this package.

    I have installed it, but I do not see any extra options in the context menu.

    I am using v1.0 of this package and I am on .Net 4.0 and do not have .Net 3.5 installed, I suspect this is the problem. So I am looking into that.

    Thank you

    Hello again, I am back having another look at this. Sorry if this is a silly question. I need a V4 framework version of this so I am attempting to rebuild the source code to V4.

    In the source there are references to businesslogic, clientdependency.Core, cms, controls, interfaces, umbraco, and umbraco.datalayer. All of which cannot be found. I was wondering where one gets these from? The paths are blank.

    Thank you if anyone has any tips.

    You can get these from any  Umbraco install in the Bin folder. Where are you expecting the extra conext menus to appear?  They should be on document types when you right mouse click.

    Hmm, that is weird, I wasn't notified of your posts in my forum, so sorry for the delayed response.

    As @Skiltz says those DLLs are in the Umbraco bin folder, however v1.0.0 of Doc Type Extensions is compiled against .NET 3.5 and Umbraco 4.5 so should work fine with your setup.

    Can you confirm the Umbraco version number you are working with and I'll see if I can replicate the issue.

    Many thanks

    Hi there, thanks so much for quick reply.

    I have managed to rebuild it to .net4 thanks to Skiltz's help there. I am using 4.5.1 on Windows 2008, IIS 7 with .Net4 in the app pool.

    I have however now just figured out I am in error again with Skiltz prompting there (don't I feel like twice the noob) and it does indeed show up on the document types (with and without the rebuild to .net4) understanding of what this package does was wrong :| So I was foolishly looking in the content section as I was hoping to change a whole bunch of content which was created under the wrong document type (who did that?!).

    Nonetheless, I am sure this will still come in handy in the future. For now tho, I got a lot of cutting and pasting ahead of me :)

    Thanks again so much for your help and again Matt for your extensions.

    I had this after an install on a 4.7.2 site. I also had my content tree not loading, think it was time out.

    I restarted SQL Server and IIS and the content tree came back to life and the context menu for doc-types started working.
