. Verify Path. Allows you to check that the web server user has the required permissions to backup under the specified path.
6. Test FTP settings. Check that Umbraco backup can communicate with your FTP server.
7. Allow backup under web root. Apparently some ISP's won't allow you write access outside of your document root.
Umbraco Backup now allows you to backup under the docroot. I still don't recommend this unless you absolutely have to.

around suggests that the place to put CSS files is in
~/Content/Styles so I drop my CSS files...
underneath the StyleSheets root folder using the Umbraco UI which
is an improvement on version 4.
so I revisit the Layout template that I worked with in my
previous post. At this point I realise that by modifying the
default Layout I've trashed the out of the box example layout, but
luckily I can now just go and install a clean copy of Version 5

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... to modify the following XML to specify where you are
running Umbraco 5 from.
If you... 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
There was a very good web chat yesterday about the Umbraco 3.0 package repository.
Details are here. http://www.umbraco.org/10722.aspx
I've added three of my recent Umbraco packages to the Umbraco extensions project on Codeplex.
The packages are:
Auto Twitter updateBroken link checkerFeed Cache
All of my packages are located in a FergusonMoriyama sub-folder from the root of the project.
Feel free to add any enhancements, and check them back in.
There is no real documentation, but the packages are reasonably simple and should be quite easy to understand.
Feel free to get in touch should you have any questions.
This content intelligence thing seems to be turning into a bit
of a mini series.
The last addition to this example for the foreseeable future is
Stemming - the reduction of a word to its root form.
In case you are thinking WTF, think about... - the root form appears in brackets after the word.
After playing with NClassifiers PorterStemmer, I found it was
often too harsh, reducing words so they made no sense.
As a solution I applied both the PorterStemmer and KStemmer
which is available from the lucene.net site. I select the shortest
correctly spelled word as the root word. The results are pretty
satisfactory, but there will be mistakes - use stemmed to us for
So why is this useful? Imagine someone visits your site
Download the pluginThis will export static HTML to alternative document root when you
publish an Umbraco page.
It is a first version and the primary idea behind sending it out now, is
to get some feedback and build up a feature list for the future.
It works reasonably well and my site is currently using it to serve

please beware I expect bugs……
The TeamSite Formspublisher GUI is getting a little old. Although extremely powerful when it comes to capturing user input, it hasn’t always kept up with some of the advancements in Web GUI.Recently, I was asked to add a select dialogue to a TeamSite data-capture template that contained hundreds of options. Out of the box you could either have a massive scrolling select box or a callout that launched a pop-up window and displayed the data in some custom fashion, neither of which.../jquery-1.3.1.min.js" />

A web poll is a useful way of gathering opinions from your site users. It is also one of the most trivial pieces of web functionality that you could write.A friend who is a java developer and has never really used .net or Umbraco wanted to see a real world example, so I put this together for him real quick (he was impressed).http://darren-fergusoncom.site.securepod.com/development/polldemo.aspxI’ll look at releasing a package at some point. It is implemented as a Macro that takes a question and a delimited set of answers as parameters.
