U4-10297 - Permission Bug for create document under root content tree

Duplicates: U4-158

If you have not allow any Document Types "Allow as root" (Settings > Document Types > > Permissions > Allow as root

All of Document Types will show on content node ( Content > Content ) <--- bug ?

If I create a dummy document type and checked "Allow as root", under the content node will only show the dummy.

This was done for backwards compatibility, if you upgrade from older versions then no "allow at root" checkboxes would ever have been set and the behavior would suddenly change, forcing everybody to have to go into their site and set up "allow at root" everywhere. http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-158#comment=67-4775

@sebastiaan I am new install version 7.6.3, not upgrade from old version. So should it happen ? If I have not checked any doc type allow at root, it should not show under content , right ?

It's just how it works Sam. For ALL installs: if you do not allow anything at root then everything is allowed at root.
