Ever wanted to display the users submission from Umbraco Contour on a Thank You page, but didn't know how to access the API? Well, this post is for you.
This could be adapted as a confirmation page to a PayPal payment form post or simply to let them know that the submission was successful.
I just got back from the Umbraco Masterclass in Seattle. I'm now a Level 2 certified Umbraco developer. Yay! During the training, we covered everything from the basics (e.g. What's a doctype?) to some more advanced concepts involving the new and improved Umbraco API. The best part was that this training was conducted entirely on Umbraco 6.
ASP.NET MVC 4 has a new feature called WebAPI which makes it much easier to create a REST API in ASP.NET. Unfortunately, I ran into one problem with IIS 6.0 that prevented the full REST spec from being used. By default IIS 6 wouldn't allow the PUT or DELETE verbs to be used with the WebAPI app that we created. Detailed inside is the solution I found.
