Screenmedia Speedy Content Creator

This is a dashboard control which allows users to create multiple nodes quickly and easily.

Having worked on many umbraco sites I find that dummy populating a new site can be really time consuming. This control lets you pick an area of the site to add a collection of nodes to. Then allows you to select how many nodes you wish to add. You can then name each node and choose a doc type from a drop down menu (this is only populated with allowed document types for your chosen node). You then click create and the user control will add these nodes to your site.

If you have the excellent standard values (http://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/standard-values-in-umbraco)  project installed your nodes will be populated as well.I hope that this will cut down the time I spend adding nodes to the content  area before I can begin developing the functionality for each site i create.

This package includes a script which will install the control to your dashboard, however this failsif you already have any dashboard controls installed so you will have to install the control manualy.

This project has been developed for umbraco 4.5 and tested in the alpha release of 4.6 (juno)
This does not currently work for umbraco 4.0 installtions.

update: version 1.1 has been released which allows you to choose a template for each node created. if you dont choose a template then it uses the default template.

If you like this package please vote it up, Karma Karma Karma.

update: version 2.0 has been released which itself is a massive re-write of SCC.  It was written for and tested in 4.7.x so backwards compatibility cannot be guaranteed (but 4.6+ should be fine).
