    Posted on . Estimated read time: 5 minutes (681 words)

    For a long time I have remained silent on the future of the uComponents project; please don’t mistake this for ignorance, it was not intentional. The truth is that it has been a struggle to lead the project through the transition from Umbraco v6 to v7 … and I’ve probably failed to do. The ongoing dilemma of the uComponents project is two-fold: where are we right now? and where are we heading? If you look…

    Posted on . Estimated read time: 2 minutes (251 words)

    A question was asked on the Our Umbraco forum about how to downgrade a version of uComponents (from v5.4.0 to v4.1.0 – as they were using Umbraco v4.7.2). There may well be other reasons that you would want to downgrade uComponents to a previous version – whether that be for Umbraco compatibility or maybe even you don’t use the package any more and just want to uninstall it. Firstly, DO NOT uninstall the package from…
