SiteLock https://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/sitelock/ https://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/sitelock/ A security package for Umbraco 7. Lock down an Umbraco website from viewers. Only users who are logged into the backoffice can see the public website.

What it is for?

There are often times when a staging or pre-production domain is publically available. This is problematic as the non-production site is not "locked down", and there might even be cases where Google indexes it. SiteLock solves this problem by only allowing authenticated users to view the website.

 

How it works

SiteLock is simply a module which is loaded dynamically at runtime. It inspects the domain of each request, and then either allows it, or throws a HttpException with a status code of 403.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swP_K5lPAyo

 

Usage

After installing the package, you'll be able to lock any website via /config/SiteLock.config.

uIntra https://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/uintra/ https://our.umbraco.org/projects/collaboration/uintra/ General

uIntra (https://uintra.com/) is an intranet framework based on popular social media conventions. It is based on Umbraco and has a high level of customization options available. uIntra will allow your organisation to communicate and organize information easy.

The uIntra architecture has been implemented and tested with several big organisations in Denmark which made the foundation for the available functionality. By extracting common needs for intra-and extranet it was possible to create a basic package solution with all the basic necessities to make a lightweight intranet fast.

 

Technical overview

- Extendability

With uIntra it is easy to extend functionality because of the NuGet package provided code that can be directly overwritten. You can use functionality, extend functionality or use your own. It’s flexible.

 

- Membership integration

uIntra is by default based on Umbraco membership, but with the provided code in NuGet packages it is possible to extend the code to import (synchronization) members from Active Directory, CRM or HR systems. Also, it is rather easy to use your own membership and map your roles to uIntra base roles.

 

- User permissions

In uIntra there is by default 3 user roles: Webmaster, UI publisher and UI user.

The Webmaster has access to everything both from UI and from Umbraco.

The UI publisher has access to everything in the UI but not the Umbraco part.

The UI User is the basic role which is limited to read/like and comment on posts and create Bulletin board posts.

The default permission settings described here, can be modified and changed.

 

- Content setup

uIntra has a content structure where content is added via panels (grid layout) as either Local (one instance) and Global (can be used on multiple pages). The global panels are created and stored in the data folder in the Umbraco tree.

All these page and panel types can be set up by the Webmaster in Umbraco so the solution fits the organizational needs.

As with any Umbraco solution, you can change or add new page types and panels. During development you can use functionality from the uIntra libraries to make deeper integration between functional parts.

Feed  

One of the panels is the “Feed panel” that is default setup on front-page, but also can be used on other sections. The feed panel can have an unlimited amount of feed types, but has three types default available when first installed:

 

-      News

-      Event

-      Bulletin

 

An activity is defined by some basic behavior and fields and can have the following standard properties enabled / disabled:

 

-      Like

-      Comments

-      Subscribe / unsubscribe

 

If the build in feed types doesn't fill your requirements it is easy to create an entirely new activity type (example “Vote”, “Blog” or “Case”) by using the uIntra libraries and architecture.

 

The solution has only a few activity types built in (News, Events, Bulletin)

 

- In-app and email notifications

One of the most important aspects of an intranet is, to keep users informed about what is important for them. There are in uIntra two notification types: Email and in-App notifications. It is very easy as part of setup uIntra, configure (via Json file), what kind of notifications for what kind of activities types, should be sent via what kind of notification type.

 

Both are working the same way: A default set of notifications for both in-app and mail is setup, but the uIntra framework allow you to extend existing or create your own notification events and messages based on the organization’s needs.

 

- Search engine support

The search engine used by default in uIntra is the powerful “Elastic search” where it is easy to index additional data through the extension of the NuGet packages.

 

- Region and language

In uIntra the default label control is based on Umbraco dictionary via implemented “resources management control”, available only for webmaster in umbraco. But, it is possible to implement a new resource control that would use another source as labels (e.g. txt files, json and so on). You can configure your platform to support any region / language you want.

 

- HTML/CSS

uIntra also offer frontend flexibility, standard elements like fonts, colors, etc can be changed in CSS as every organization have their own identity, it is possible to create a unique look.

You can apply your own custom CSS, and this will not be overwritten by package updates because the uIntra core is built on its own separate CSS files.

 

Demo

We have built a demo https://demo.uintra.com/ that shows the basic functionalities of uIntra. This will give a good overview of how uIntra could be set up, while an actual implementation allows for user customization and the creation of a unique intranet. Additionally, it will give you deep overview as a video, how webmaster can setup originally via Umbraco and work with it in general (just click on right top corner there and Umbraco icon).

 

uIntra is free for small organizations

uIntra has a very interesting marketing model for small to medium sized organizations. We want to see uIntra grow and a fast way of achieving that is offering the product for free. As uIntra grows in popularity hopefully so will the companies and organizations using it. When the use exceeds 30 members uIntra becomes a subscription based product.

 

Responsive design

uIntra is made and tested on a wide range of platforms, in order to ensure accessibility to its users. It is tested on:

 

PC: Windows 10

·         MAC: iOS 9+

·         IE11+, PC

·         Edge, PC (latest at project start)

·         Chrome, PC or Mac (latest)

·         FireFox, PC (latest at project start)

·         Safari, Mac (latest at project start)

·         IPad (latest), Native Safari

·         IPhone 6, Native Safari

·         Android Galaxy 5+, Chrome

 

Install

In order to set up uIntra first some third-party software is required:

      Umbraco 7.6.3+ (https://our.umbraco.org/contribute/releases/763)

      Elasticsearch 5.2.1+ with Ingest Attachment Processor Plugin (https://www.elastic.co/ and https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/plugins/5.5/ingest-attachment.html)

      Node.js 6.6+ (for webpack installation and further working https://nodejs.org/en/)

 

When the required software is installed, the latest release of uIntra can be found here, and installed through a guided process. When uIntra is installed the project needs to be build in Visual Studio and run the site.

See a full installation guide attached

 

Get started

Just when you built the project and run it as web site, you can start working there immediately as webmaster and also, as Intranet members. Please, see our “Getting started” video at the bottom of https://uintra.com/ ;and if you have more questions, you are welcome to ask vma@compent.net

CMS Environment Indicator https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/cms-environment-indicator/ https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/cms-environment-indicator/ When developing websites using Umbraco in multi-environment solution, you can often get confused which environment you are currently looking at.

As a visual aid, this package will add a colour-coded indicator in the CMS back-office - this is applied to both the favicon (in the browser tab/title-bar) and adds a stripe to your avatar (in the top-left navigation).

screenshot

This package was developed and tested against Umbraco v7+ on the Umbraco-as-a-Service platform.

 

Changing the colours

If you want to modify the default colours, you can do this by editing the "/App_Plugins/CmsEnvironmentIndicator/js/cms-environment-indicator.js" script. You'll find a JavaScript array called "config", there you can modify the existing colours and/or add new hostname/colour combinations. The hostnames are defined as Regular Expressions, so don't forget to escape any dots, etc.

Plumber - Workflow for Umbraco https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/plumber-workflow-for-umbraco/ https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/plumber-workflow-for-umbraco/ A workflow solution for Umbraco. Plumber adds a heap of useful bits and pieces to Umbraco, to allow multi-staged workflow approval for publish/unpublish actions.

After installing, the newly added Workflow section includes a documentation tab, which should offer a bit more explanation of features and processes.

This is currently a (solid) beta.

Try it

Visit the demo site at http://plumber-demo.azurewebsites.net, using one of the test users:

Username: TestUserA ... TestUserF
Password: UserAPassword ... UserFPassword

This site will be overwritten semi-regularly, but should serve as a decent sandbox to fiddle with the workflow features.

Features (including, not limited to)

- Workflow groups (users can belong to one or many)
- Document-based workflow
- Document-type-based workflow
- Workflow inheritance based on the content tree structure
- Email notifications as tasks progress through workflows
- User dashboard, showing pending submissions and tasks
- Admin dashboard, showing all active tasks
- Extends Umbraco's existing permissions model
- Customised action buttons (replaces default save/save and publish options)
- Workflow history (document-based and global)
- Workflow types
-- All groups must approve -> every step of the assigned workflow must be completed
-- Other groups must approve -> only steps where the orginial editor is not a member must be completed
-- All groups, ignoring original editor -> every step must be completed, but the original editor won't be included in notifications

Form Storage V7 https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/form-storage-v7/ https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/form-storage-v7/ Form Storage V7 is an Umbraco version 7 compatible re-working of Kevin Giszewski's original Form Storage package.

As per the original, the new package offers a simple way to take user submitted data and store it into your database,  perfect for use with MVC Surface Controller forms.

This package comes with a datatype that you can place on any document to search the data.

Installation:

On install, this package will add three tables to your database.  You will need to remove these tables manually on uninstall (this prevents unintended data destruction).

You will need to add a few AppSettings keys to your web config.

Use one key to setup each form with it's fields like so:

<add key="FormStorage:ContactUs" value="name,address,email,phone,comments"/>

This adds the "ContactUs" form with the fields name, address, etc.  You may house as many forms as you wish.

 

Configuration:

You can optionally provide some configuration of how your fields are displayed when form submissions are listed in your back-office. The first example shows how to provide some more human-friendly names for your fields:

<add key="FormStorage:Translation:name" value="Name"/>

<add key="FormStorage:Translation:email" value="Email Address"/>

<add key="FormStorage:Translation:phone" value="Phone"/>

<add key="FormStorage:Translation:address" value="Address"/>

<add key="FormStorage:Translation:comments" value="Comments"/>

<add key="FormStorage:Translation:company" value="Company"/>

It is recommended that you create very simple field names that resemble the data closely.  The more human friendly names can change without any consequences to the data. N.B. these field name translations are used across all of your forms.

The V7 package offers some further configuration options:

1. The width of a field (in pixels) can be set (default is 100):

<add key="FormStorage:YourFormAlias:YourFieldName:width" value="150"/>

2. The horizontal alignment of a field can be set to left, right or center (default is center):

<add key="FormStorage:YourFormAlias:YourFieldName:align" value="left"/>

3. The visibility of a field can be set to true or false (default is true):

<add key="FormStorage:YourFormAlias:YourFieldName:visible" value="false"/>

 

Wire up your form:

In your MVC Surface Controller, add something like this to save submissions:

using FormStorage;

FormSchema.CreateSubmission("ContactUs",

new Dictionary<string, string> {

        { "name", m.Name },

        { "email", m.Email },

        { "address", m.Address},

        { "company", m.Company},

        { "phone", m.Phone},

        { "comments", m.Comments}

 });

 

Search the Results:

Create a datatype instance using "Form Storage", set the prevalue to your form alias and then drop the datatype onto a doctype of your choosing.

A sample datatype has been included with the install.

Many thanks again to Kevin for his excellent original!

EventCalendar https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/eventcalendar/ https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/eventcalendar/ EventCalendar for Umbraco 7

EventCalendar for Umbraco is a package that lets you create and manage calendar, locations, organiser and events. You can create one-time, recurring or anniversary events. Locations and Organiser can be reused from different events. It has it's own security settings to let you define which of your users are allowed to edit specific entities.

Version 3.0.0-RC and above can be used for free on localhost with a trial license.

A license can be purchased via website https://www.davidbrendel.de.

Since version 3.1.0 the package needs an update of the Newtonsoft.Json library to version 7.0.1!

Installation

You can either download the package here or install it via nuget. The package comes with multiple document types. It is necessary that the detail pages are placed under the calendar node for the package to work right. Also, activate the newly created section for the users that should have access to it. The URLs for event/location/organiser details are build by convention and can be redirected using URL rewriting.

    <settings>
      <add key="recipientEmail" value="something@thatdoesntexist.com" />
    </settings>
  </notificationMethod>

2: Disable the Files and Folders permissions check for notifications

<disabledChecks>
  <!-- Folder & File Permissions -->
  <check id="53DBA282-4A79-4B67-B958-B29EC40FCC23" disabledOn="" disabledBy="0"/>
</disabledChecks>

 

This settings are required due to U4-10249 & U4-10272 both of which will be resolved before Umbraco v7.7 RTM

Skybrud.Social for Umbraco 7 https://our.umbraco.org/projects/website-utilities/skybrudsocial-for-umbraco-7/ https://our.umbraco.org/projects/website-utilities/skybrudsocial-for-umbraco-7/ This package is build for Umbraco 7.1.x and newer.

Skybrud.Social is a framework in .NET that integrates with a number of social services.

This package - Skybrud.Social for Umbraco 7 - will use Skybrud.Social for bringing stuff like OAuth authentication to Umbraco 7. The package focuses on the Umbraco backoffice by adding a set of data types. As of now there are data types to handle the OAuth authentication for the APIs of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Instagram.

You can then use Skybrud.Social for interacting with the supported APIs.

Notice

Even though Skybrud.Social for Umbraco 7 is a package made for Umbraco, there is a good chance that you only need Skybrud.Social.

For instance authenticating with the Facebook API will give you a user context so you can make calls to the API on behalf of your user and access private data your user has access to.

If you just need to access public data, Facebook (and the other APIs) have what is called an app context, and you don't need the Umbraco package. You can consult the Skybrud.Social documentation for further information on this ;)

Similarly if you want something that lets your members (visitors) log in using Facebook, Twitter or similar, this is not something that is supported by Skybrud.Social for Umbraco 7, but you can implement this on your own using Skybrud.Social.

NuGet

The package is available on NuGet as well. This is the recommended approach to installing the package.

Documentation

You can mfind documentation for Skybrud.Social at social.skybrud.dk

Umbraco 6?

This package is created for Umbraco 7, and therefore doesn't support Umbraco 6.

I do however have an old equivelant for Umbraco, 6, which you can find at: http://our.umbraco.org/projects/website-utilities/skybrudsocial-for-umbraco

SVG Icon Picker https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/svg-icon-picker/ https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/svg-icon-picker/ A picker, for picking icons from an SVG spritesheet.

How to use

Pick SvgIconPicker as the editor for your desired icon property.

Type the path to your SVG spritesheet in the configuration.

On the document where you put the editor, it works just like the built in media picker mixed with the icon picker. You can filter icons, by searching the icons id. Select an icon by clicking it.

The selected icons id is saved as a string in the property value.

You can then render it in your frontend using a snippet like this:

<svg viewBox="0 0 100 100">
<use xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:href="/assets/svg.svg#@Model.Content.GetPropertyValue("icon")"></use></svg>
