Share your shit

Is this blog valuable to you? Making use of 1 or more of the free packages? Found some useful tip in the sourcecode?

If you feel you want to repay the favor then start by sharing your Umbraco experience Smile It doesn’t have to be the next jaw dropping package but you can answer questions on the forum, demo Umbraco to dev’s that don’t know about it, share useful code snippets, blog about your journey with Umbraco and what you’ve learned, try to package up something you created, write docs, test new releases, report bugs, contribute to the core or packages…. there lot’s of ways to get involved Smile

    Some really good articles here.
    The char limit data type tutorial got me started with data types in V4/6, i’ve since passed that link on to another developer who found it just as useful.

    “great tip you passed on - got my first custom data type working. cheers mate :)”

    The V7 tips are saving me serious time, as it’s so new there is not that much info out there yet.

    Looking forward to developing more packages to share! (so many ideas)
    Thanks for the great resource!

    Hi Tim,

    Really enjoyed your “Master of Datatypes” video.

    Have followed step by step, but I keep hitting this problem when the xml data is being retrieved.

    was not expected.

    At the moment the datatype has just one value…

    Looks like this in the App_Data/umbraco.config


    Any advice? clues? What am I missing?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Hey man,I stumbled upon your Nibble.Umb.Poll and it looks like exactly what i need. Only problem is I am using ver 6 of umbraco.

    Can you guide me as to how to modify the poll to install in version 6?

    I definitely found your Belle tutorials on property editors very helpful and have created a Font Awesome Icon Picker. Check it out!

    Hello Tim,

    i think you are doing a good job making these tutorials and ofcourse Umbraco Forms.

    I am starting to document some of the things I have done in my site to help out other umbraco devs out there.

    Just a question,
    My biggest obstacle so far is prevalues for umbraco forms.
    Is it possible to create a custom one? (not just string) as I have found out I need a sortable prevalue. You guys had it in contour and got rid of it in UmbracoForms.

    Any guide will do. Thanks.

    @Denise do you mean prevalue sources? Those are still available in Forms
