Best practice for SEO tag / category pages in Umbraco 7+

I've tried all the popular blog packages in Umbraco.People talk alot about articulate, and it's certainly very comforting that one of the core developers are behind this package, BUT...I just have 1 problem with it - it seems so be somewhat "hardcoded".. By that I mean, doesn't integrate that well into the Umbraco backoffice - at least it seems to me. The "themes" articualte introduces (while a great idea) does not show up in the templates dropdown nor are they stored in the templates table inside Umbraco. So if you want to change templates, you'd have to get your hands "di...

Umbraco 7 Macro Rendering

Im using Umbraco 7 for an Intranet. I was hoping to replicate some functionality that is in the backend, ive noticed when it renders the macro in the backend it will load the macro after / during the full page load.I was hoping to replicated that same functionality in the front end, so that it can load the full page quickly then render the macros as and when theyve fully renderedHas anyone else done anything like this before?ThanksIan The reason it works like that in the back end of Umbraco is that the Macros are stored as custom markup in the RichText editor. There's so...

Where are models added?

(My apologies for all those that voted the question down. I'm not trying to avoid researching. I've been actually trying to find a way for doing this for the past several hours. The only thing I'm trying to avoid is paying the Umbraco TV membership fee)This is probably a dumb question:I'm somewhat familiar with MVC, but really new to UMBRACO 7. I'm going through documentation on how to add restricted pages (pages accesible to some membership types) and I have to create a model. I've been searching through the whole UMBRACO settings and developer back office pages but couldn...

Importing an UMBRACO site into Visual Studio

Is it possible to import an already existing Umbraco site into Visual Studio? (By means of getting all the site files and DB backup)I've tried creating an empty project and copying the website files, but I get several errors when I try to compile the solution. The errors look like "Could not find scheme information for the element 'umbracoConfiguration'."The same happens if I create an empty solution, add the UMBRACO nuget package, and then copy the website files. I'm wondering if it is at all possible, or if once an UMBRACO website is running, how should one customize/dev...

how to render MVC views from SurfaceController?

I have installed Umbraco 7 in MVC application. Have you achieved ever rendering MVC View from Surface Controller ? If it is possible to do how it can be done by passing model and passing a query string parameter to View ? If I understand your question correctly, you need to use an approach called Route Hijacking, rather than surface controllers.Simplified, the steps are:Create a model matching a given Document Type.Create a mapper to map an Umbraco IPublishedContent object to the model.Create a controller that inherits Umbraco.Web.Mvc.RenderMvcController.Override the Ind...

Umbraco form post - using CurrentUmbracoPage with anchor tag

Using Umbraco 7 - I would like to perform a form post, but then return the user back to the current form if the model state fails validation.However the application is being developed as a single page application - and with that in mind - would like to include an anchor tag in the URL so the user sees the form with validation messages.However if I use CurrentUmbracoPage() - validation works and model-state is maintained - but I can't find a way of adding an anchor tag. If I use a RedirectResult, I lose my model state!At present, if the form fails validation - the page reloa...

Umbraco 4.5 in a virtual directory with umbracoUseDirectoryUrls

I've installed Umbraco 4.5 in a virtual directory on my web server (server/cms). When I edit web.config and set umbracoUseDirectoryUrls = "true", the URLs generated don't contain the virtual directory (i.e. server/page instead of server/cms/page).

Are Umbraco and NuGet packages interchangeable?

I'm building websites in Umbraco and they all use similar components and base templates. The obvious best practice is to create packages that install these things ready. But I can't tell how to do things like add project references in Umbraco, and I can't tell how to create document types (a database object) in NuGet.I've not been able to find a good comparison of abilities - what one package can do that the other can't - to be able to choose one or the other types of package. Or will I have to use both types of packages for different jobs (I don't want to go down this rout...

Why does my umbraco instance not have the buttons named correctly?

My local copy of Umbraco has the save button showing up as [buttons_saveAndPublish] and a lot of the other links in Umbraco have the same issue. I checked my console and I don't have any JavaScript issues showing. OK, so it looks like it broke when I changed my target framework from 4.5 to 4.6 to fix a TLS related API call issue<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" enableVersionHeader="false" targetFramework="4.5" maxRequestLength="51200" fcnMode="Single" />Once I changed the 4.6 to 4.5 this issue went away [XXX]
