New project now live ST220 ENTHUSIASTS

I have just pushed my latest project live for the group ST220 ENTHUSIASTS.

It is a mobile friendly Umbraco CMS based website, the front end has been written using Bootstrap, jQuery, Now UI, AJAX and the Razor template engine.

The underlying code is the Umbraco CMS system which runs on Dot Net Framework 4.7 (C#).

Some of the code i used in the site has come from a really useful resource codeshare.co.uk

The site can be found here: https://st220enthusiasts.com

Recursivly Include In Visual Studio

When ever i build with Umbraco i find that i have to manually include files / folders into Visual Studio to be able to edit them with intellisense.

The is especially helpful when working with Views, to add the Views folder and all items under it recursively to Visual Studio just follow my tips below:

Unload your project by right clicking on your project name and clicking on Unload Project

Next right click your project name and click Edit PROJECTNAME.csproj

Once you have opened this file remove any lines containing the following:

<Content Include="Views

then when you have done that include the following line:

<Content Include="Views\**" />

 

Then just simply save the file, right click on your project name and then Reload Project.

All of your files under Views should now be included in your project and usable with intellisense.

Umbraco Build Error - New Installation From NuGet

One really annoying bug yet to be solved on a fresh install of Umbraco from NuGet in Visual Studio is the following build error:

CSC : warning AD0001: Analyzer 'Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.CSharp.Analyzers.FixAnalyzers.CSharpFixerWithFixAllAnalyzer' threw an exception of type 'System.TypeInitializationException' with message 'The type initializer for 'Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Analyzers.FixAnalyzers.FixerWithFixAllAnalyzer`1' threw an exception.'.

This is really easily solved, 1 NuGet package needs updating to remove this issue, simply open Manage NuGet Packages go to the Installed tab and search for the following:

microsoft.codeanalysis.csharp

And them simply update to the latest version.

Hopefully they will roll this out as a fix eventually, I have raised this with them on their forums with no reply.

How to uninstall VMware Workstation 12 Player on Windows 10

So I had an issue while cleaning up my SSD, in that Windows 10 would not allow me to uninstall VMware Workstation 12 Player... The Modify and Uninstall buttons were completely greyed out...

After some looking around i found the answer which helped me, and may help you if you have the same problem.

Simply search for CMD (Command Prompt) and run as the administrator user.

Once command prompt has open run the following command to open the old style program manager:

control appwiz.cpl

Find VMware Player (or similar name) in the list, click it, and then choose Change on the bar above.

When the installer opens up simply click Next followed by Uninstall / Remove.
