RenderMacro and MVC Razorworking with the 'Macro Container DataType' with MVC razor
Posted on Thursday, July 24, 2014
I earlier versions of Umbraco it seemed easy enough to use a Macro container as part of page template.
This outputed (for example):
<?UMBRACO_MACRO macroalias="AccordianForTools" nodeId="1463" />
While upgrading a site to v.6.2.1 running MVC engine the @Umbraco.Field("renderMacro") within a page template (view) did not render anything.
Turns out there is an Umbraco Library helpers there is this method that can be used to display the macros from a macro container.
This is listed as an bug/issue : http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-5273
(fix due in 6.2.2)
