XsltUpdater for Umbraco

Credits: This Package is made by Markus Klug, I only tested it and set it up on our.

This Package provides an Update method to update all xslts from the old xml schema to the new one which is used by umbraco 4.5. The xslt's won't be replaced. The package creates new copies from the old xslt's and places them into the standard folder xslt-new (can be edited in the config file "XsltUpdater.config" in the "config" folder)


  • Install the package
  • Create the folder /xslt-new in your root
  • go to /umbraco/plugins/XsltUpdater/XsltUpdater.aspx in your umbraco instance
  • follow the instructions
How this works:
This aspx uses several regex transformations to update your old schema xslts to the new schema. details can be seen under: http://www.feature-farm.com/Umbraco/XsltUpdater/
Features in the pipeline:
  • Definition of the regex in the config to add or remove regex statements
  • Cleaning Tagnames (see below)
Know issues
  • If you have doctypes with dots in the name like "blog.com.Post" these will be named by Umbraco to blogcomPost. These changes aren't refelcted yet by the XsltUpddater instead it will update to "blog.com.Post"
