Rolling over the notifier shows you the feeds that have unread items and clicking launches Google reader. This is a great time saver as it removes my temptation to check if there are any new posts in my reader every 5-10 minutes which obviously interrupts
A while back I wrote about
displaying maps on your Umbraco website using my Google
maps datatype for Umbraco. Since then I've had a number of
requests to provide an example of how to display multiple points on
a map and Matt Perry
and I have...: The empty map div is a placeholder for the Google map
Quite a few people have written to me asking how one would add
several points to a single instance of my datatype and the short
answer is you can't. You'll need to create an Umbraco node...());
For the above to work, you'll need to include jQuery and the
zoom and centre according to the points that you have added.
Accessibility alert: Please provide a header
var mapId... if Javacsript is enabled. The example above are just to get you started and are by no means best practice.Finally if you are displaying a static Google map using the img tag you should display an alt tag detailing what the map is e.g.A map of Anfield Road
I've released a new version of my Google maps datatype for
Umbraco. The new package and the documentation are available from
project page.Here is a summary of the new features and enhancements:Added a clear button to remove a stored location.Moved all CSS from user control to external CSS file to allow
user to alter map appearance.Added support for default map locations on a per domain
basis.GUI based configuration of datatype, no need to edit XML config
files any more.Config GUI can be added to Umbraco dashboard.General code/markup cleanup.For me, the datatype is now pretty much feature complete. If
you'd like to see anything else added, you can submit a request in
feature request forum. Bugs can
As a result of user feedback, it seems that a few people are
having an issue with failed backups as a result of using a backup
target directory under your web root. This is because Umbraco
backup tries to backup it's own target zip file, causing some
This issue will be fixed with the release of 1.1, however,
unless you have to,Do not backup under the webroot.
Google and other search engines can index zip files and their
contents. One user has already made me aware of some Umbraco blogs
that have zipped versions of their site that have been indexed and
you are able to see the contents of web.config including database
host and password details.

My Umbraco map/place dataype that I've blogged about previously is available for download here. The datatype is distributed as an Umbraco package.Note: This is an Umbraco v4 datatype only. I may update it to support version 3 if there is the demand. Important: You will need a Google maps API key to use this datatype. The key can be obtained from this site and needs to be placed in the configuration file /umbraco/plugins/FergusonMoriyama/place/place.config.There are a couple of known issues, which I believe are issues with Canvas, but I'm happy to be corrected if wrong. First, the first time you click on a map location to edit - in IE only - the map doesn't render, subsequent edits work fine. The second issue is that if you edit one map
The week before last the fine folks at Carsonified were kind enough to let me use the attendees of their FOWA Dublin show to test a Twitter/Google Maps/location "mashup" that I had developed. I've been asked to blog my opinions on FOWA... it works:
First, follow fowdublin and wait for it to follow you back.
Keep your twitter profile location up to date or include a link

Disclaimer: this isn't an introduction to log4net.
Please Google for a more generic introduction.
Recent versions of Umbraco ship with Log4Net
- previously it was reasonably straightforward to add it to your
customisations but now it is really simple to do logging
in your custom code. It is also arguably essential as there isn't a
current method for receiving the Umbraco page assembly trace in the
new MVC "rendering mode".
This blog post will explain how to get a reference to a
logger in your custom code and then how to control the Level of
your logging and filter messages from your code to their own log
First up you'll need a reference to log4net in your project. I
recommend referencing the version

great in terms of being agile with your document types.
