This is my first experience with Umbraco. I downloaded the source code commit version commit 1a8fa0763133 and tried to compile it with VS 2010 on Windows 7. It gives me a lot of compile errors.'

Error 226 Package restore is disabled by default. To give consent, open the Visual Studio Options dialog, click on Package Manager node and check 'Allow NuGet to download missing packages during build.' You can also give consent by setting the environment variable 'EnableNuGetPackageRestore' to 'true'. Umbraco.Tests


I have set the environment variable but it still does not work.

Error 8 Package restore is disabled by default. To give consent, open the Visual Studio Options dialog, click on Package Manager node and check 'Allow NuGet to download missing packages during build.' You can also give consent by setting the environment variable 'EnableNuGetPackageRestore' to 'true'. Umbraco.Web.UI

Downloaded everything whetever asked by nuget. Still the error.


Wasted 8 hours in trying to get this compiled. But failed. Very frustrating experience. NopCommerce compiles in a single shot.

I love umbraco very much, but sometimes i see very "ugly" code, which make me want to kill developers ;)

catch (Exception exception)
{
Log.Add(LogTypes.Error, new User(0), -1, "CreatedPackage.cs " + exception.ToString());
}

The configuration section 'system.web.extensions' cannot be read because it is missing a section declaration
Any idea why I'm getting this?

Please - whenever you put out a CTP release, put out detailed and complete installation instructions, starting from scratch. We all understand there will be bugs in the CMS itself, but the installation process should be reasonably reliable. Otherwise the "community" will simply become just a few technicians who are willing to spend hours trying to survive a minefield.

The project type is not supported by this installation.


I am getting this error when I downloaded the source code. I am running on windows 7 and visual studio 2010.

Please help me out to compile the code properly. Also from where I can get the dB script for this application.

How do I install it?

Great PR on the website, but when it gets down to analysis, shouldn't I be able to build this by reading a readme file? I had high hopes for this solution.

THere's no readme, no solution, no project file in the 4.7.0.RC.zip

What's missing here?

Would be nice to have a "What's New" section or document so upgraders can see at a glance what is new

CDeCinko Jan 12, 2011 at 8:43 PM 
Why no list of bug fixes? I like the new features but don't see any that make me jump to upgrade. I'd upgrade quicker if I knew some key bugs that bug me have been fixed.

Hi Paul,

Nice document. I agree with Adam to ass a few more screenshots. And maybe put "Understanding Umbraco - A Primer " above "Commercial offerings". This is just because people want to learn more about the system first IMHO.

Thanks,

Richard

Hi Paul

I'd suggest that a few more diagrams and sceenshots would be good, a picture can back up the words much more succinctly. In particular when going through the doctypes/templates/macros sections. it is quite wordy and could be difficult to follow for a complete newbie...It would be good to actually show in a screen shot the areas you are talking about with some arrows and descriptive text.

Let me know if you need any help with this at all...more than happy to provide some input.

Cheers

Adam

Hi

This is a nice introduction to those that are completely new to Umbraco. I think this is easing the learning curve and will be much appreciated.

However on the installation part where it's mentioned that the web host takes care of the installation...I'm not sure I agree. In my experience it's up to one self to copy the binaries on to the server and run the installation through the browser in a shared hosting Environment.

Of course if one is a customer to who had a company build their site they should not at all care about the installation and in that case it makes sense. But if this is aimed at newbie Umbraco developers I think that not all web hosts offer to do the installation...those hosts I have used so far has not offered this in DK at least :-)

Just my 2 cents
