Installing the Macro in Umbraco

  1. Login to Umbraco Developer section, for example http://www.myblog.com/umbraco/
  2. From the tree, expand the Packages folder.
  3. From here there are two ways to install a package: select Install local package or browse the Umbraco Package Respository.
  4. If you install local package, do not unzip the package but load the zip into Umbraco.
  5. Follow the instructions on screen

Note: You may get a ‘Maximum request length exceeded’ error when installing. You can easily fix this issue by updating the ‘maxRequestLength’ value in your Umbraco web.config file.

<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" enableVersionHeader="false" 
             maxRequestLength="25000" />

Using the Installed Macro

After you have installed the macro it is really simple to start using it on your website. Please follow these simple steps to get started:

  1. Make sure you are logged-in to Umbraco Developer section, for example http://www.myblog.com/umbraco/
