Relates to: U4-115
Subtask of: U4-115
Currently UmbracoSettings is not a real .Net config section so if there are issues with it, it doesn't report them properly. We need to create the proper config section classes to support its structure.
This is marked as not backwards compatible because of the changes required to be made in the web.config file
This requires these changes:
The config section group header in the web.config now looks like this:
The config section in the web.config now looks like this:
The UmbracoSettings config file relates to the config consolidation.
There is a tool for Visual Studio called [Configuration Section Designer|http://csd.codeplex.com/]. I've used it a few times, easy to set-up and offers intellisense (XSD) for the config files.
Due to time constraints we're moving this to a later release.
I really hope that this and the http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-115 are done together as we should probably combine these configs and make them make more sense :) Plus it would be great to have far less config files by combining many of the sections into one. Perhaps we could make sense an upgrade scripty thing to make the new config file from the old ones
