URLScan blocks periods within folder names

Hi All

If you're having trouble running this, the problem I had was that URLScan (which is running on the target server) will block content of folders names using periods.

See my post on the Umbraco site for further info.


To configure this package using Umbraco 4.7 and the Business Runway umedia package/skin:

  • Modify URLScan.ini 
  • Install the Designit_Gallery package into Umbraco
  • I didn't add a mediapicker property on the TextPage Document type 
  • Create a new folder in the Media section and note its ID number (Properties tab)
  • Simply create a new text page and add the Macro.
  • For the FolderID add the ID number noted above

Done :)
