    Using UmbracoTemplatePage instead of ViewPage

    How would I convert this so it works with Umbraco.Web.MVC.UmbracoTemplatePage? I want to be able to use CurrentPage.

     @using Skybrud.Social.Twitter
        @using Skybrud.Social.Twitter.Objects
        @using Skybrud.Social.Umbraco.Twitter.PropertyEditors.OAuth
        @inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoViewPage
    
    
        @{
    
            // Get the OAuth information stored in the property
            TwitterOAuthData twitter = Model.GetPropertyValue("twitterFeed") as TwitterOAuthData;
    
            // Check whether the OAuth data is valid
            if (twitter != null && twitter.IsValid) {
    
                // Gets an instance of TwitterService based on the OAuth data
                TwitterService service = twitter.GetService();
    
                // Get information about the authenticated user
                TwitterUser user = service.Users.GetUser(twitter.Id).Body;
    
                // Get recent status messages (tweets) from the authenticated user
                TwitterStatusMessage[] recent = service.Statuses.GetUserTimeline(user.Id, 5).Body;
    
                <fieldset>
                    @foreach (TwitterStatusMessage status in recent) {
                    <p>@status.Text</p>
                    }
                </fieldset>
    
            }
    
            if (CurrentPage.HasValue("instagramSocial", true))
                {
                    <p>@CurrentPage.instagramSocial</p>
                }
    
        }

    Hate to bump this but really want to the use of CurrentPage with this. Hope someone can help as I can't work it out.

    I think it's really not necessary to use CurrentPage since you have Model now with the same capabilities? If you tell us what specifically do you miss from CurrentPage we can help.

    Hi, Thanks for the reply. I am trying to access a document type which belongs to another page

    i.e On my homepage, I have a 'Social media' tab, which holds my social media usernames, I want to be able to use the code above on other pages as well as the homepage but don't want to have to enter my social media details or create a 'Social media' tab on every page I create.

    Alright, that's pretty similar to how you would do it with CurrentPage so it would look something like this:

    var rootNode = Model.Content.AncestorOrSelf(1);
    var twitterUserName = rootNode.GetPropertyValue<string>("twitterUserName");
    

    To explain: Model.Content.AncestorOrSelf(1) means: from the current page (Model.Content) go up through the list of all of the ancestors and stop at level 1. That's presumably where your homepage lives.

    Then find the property with alias twitterUserName on the homepage and get the string value of it as filled in on the homepage (rootNode).

    Thanks Sebastiaan, but I am getting a compilation error:

    CS1061: 'Umbraco.Core.Models.IPublishedContent' does not contain a definition for 'Content' and no extension method 'Content' accepting a first argument of type 'Umbraco.Core.Models.IPublishedContent' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
    

    It is highlighting the line

    var rootnode = Model.Content.AncestorOrSelf(1);
    

    I'm uinheritting Umbraco.Web.Mvc.UmbracoViewPage, do I need anything else?

    Ah, alright, I see what's going on. So you haven't explicitly been given the content. Alright, should be easy to fix:

    To get to the content like I listed above use the following:

    var currentContent = Umbraco.TypedContent(UmbracoContext.PageId.Value);
    var rootNode = currentContent.AncestorOrSelf(1);
    var twitterUserName = rootNode.GetPropertyValue<string>("twitterUserName");

    Hi Owain,

    I think Sebastiaans initial code example was right, but you probably need to integrate it a bit into the view depending on which class you're inheriting from.

    If you can post your entire cshtml file, we can work on from there ;)

    instagram partial:

        @{
    
            // Get the OAuth information stored in the property
            InstagramOAuthData instagram = Model.GetPropertyValue("instagram") as InstagramOAuthData;
    
            // Check whether the OAuth data is valid
            if (instagram != null && instagram.IsValid) {
    
                // Gets an instance of InstagramService based on the OAuth data
                InstagramService service = instagram.GetService();
    
                // Gets information about the authenticated user
                InstagramUserResponse self = service.Users.GetSelf();
    
                // Get recent media from the authenticated user
                InstagramRecentMediaResponse recent = service.Users.GetRecentMedia(self.Body.Data.Id, 4);
    
    
    
                <fieldset>
                    @foreach (InstagramMedia media in recent.Body.Data) {
                    <a href="@Umbraco.Field("instagramSocial")"><img src="@media.Thumbnail" alt="@media.CaptionText" height="110px" width="110px" /></a>
                    }
                </fieldset>
    
            }
    
        }
    

    I would use it for a twitter partial as well but if I can pull the data from one field then I can do it for all of them.

    As a side note, what's the best way to learn about all of this, other than the forum?

    Thanks!

    It really does work though :-) In your Instagram partial, after @{ something like:

    var currentContent = Umbraco.TypedContent(UmbracoContext.PageId.Value);
    var rootNode = currentContent.AncestorOrSelf(1);
    InstagramOAuthData instagram = rootNode .GetPropertyValue("instagram") as InstagramOAuthData;
    

    Maybe this even works:

    var instagram = rootNode.GetPropertyValue<InstagramOAuthData>("instagram");

    Brilliant! It was the second part to your reply that made it work for me!

    I think it's lack of understanding that I'm struggling with most - might look at a Umbraco.TV subscription and see if that helps me with the basics.

    Thanks for your help.
