Dashboard Prevalue editor - a simple Umbraco package that I
released on our.umbraco.org.
The idea behind this package is that you'd use it to allow
content editors to control PreValue lists. You don't want to expose
them to the developer section so you can just place the datatypes
you'd like them to be able to edit on the Umbraco dashboard in
whichever section you'd like.
The UI is also a little simpler than the regular prevalue editor
you just "type and tab". Each time you hit tab a new PreValue is
I also use this package as a developer during initial content

To display a (Razor) view on and Umbraco 5 dashboard - using a
custom controller provided by an Umbraco 5 plugin.
Plugin folder structure:
Plugins go in: App_Plugins\Packages... a web.config at the root of your plugin
folder. If you refresh the Umbraco back office you should see
a Hello world view on your dashboard.
What makes this work:
The dashboard is defined in your plugin web.config - Umbraco
Jupiter uses a technique known as deep config which means plugin
cofig is merged with the main application configuration.
The dashboard snippet looks like this:

I've released two new Umbraco packages:
Event ViewerStatic HTML ExportEvent Viewer Discovers all of the events that are registered within an Umbraco instance and displays them on the dashboard. It finds legacy ActionHandlers as well as new v4 events.
It tells you the method that the event invokes and the DLL and namespace where it is defined. I've found this useful for troubleshooting performance bottlenecks and removing redundant event handlers.
Static HTML export Is a re-write of one of my first ever Umbraco packages (more than 4 years ago!).
The package contains an event handler that fires after a node is published and writes out static HTML plus all of the dependencies (CSS, images, JS ). The project arose from a client
is to put a hard stop in place when there is a fundamental problem with the property editor (or dashboard). I think that when a developer is learning how to extend Umbraco for the first time, getting hung up on mis-spellings, missing quotes and semi... Umbraco to throw an exception when there is an issue with a property editor or dashboard.
I haven't blogged for a while and one of the reasons is that
I've been working on
Bill4U - a billing system based on Umbraco.
Bill4U is targeted at small businesses and freelancers who
generate a relatively small amount of invoices each month. It
allows you to quickly bill customers from the Umbraco dashboard,
simplifies repetitive tasks like repeat billing and allows you to
quickly and easily create order forms on your website using Umbraco
Out of the box you can generate branded PDF invoices and collect
payments via Paypal. Bill4U is VAT aware and can be easily
configured to work with your own regional settings.
Bill4U is also extremely extensible - the business logic is
separated into small discrete tasks
Prime minister Brown recently proposed a dashboard that allows every citizen to personalise the explosive growth of government services on the web. Personally I think the government should stick to the basics.
Following on from a previous blog post UK Government IT incompetence: fco.gov.uk I'm sad to report another far from satisfying experience, this time with hmcourts-service.gov.uk
I tried to make a simple form submission on the site and received a message along the lines of "We cannot accept your submission at this time: Please try again later". So try again later I did - several times.
Patience exhausted I fired an email off to their customer support team only to receive this exasperating response:
Thank you for your
