Widget Builder for Umbraco v6
What is it?
Widget Builder is on-the-fly fieldset management and gives editors the flexibility to add what they need when they need it.
Comes with several native property types and is compatible with some 3rd-party property editors like DAMP.
- Allows editors to add fields at run-time.
- Set permissions on a per Widget or a per Widget Property level.
- Use the Umbraco data type editor to setup your custom widget.
- Attach custom JS/CSS files to your Widget.
Note: This is not compatible with Umbraco v7. For similiar v7 functionality see Umbraco Archetype.

Widget Builder isn't perfect, here is a list of known issues:
- WB does not play nice with the 'Related Links' data type. Please use the uComponents Multi-Url Picker instead.
- WB's RTE (TinyMCE) implementation has an issue with 'Insert Macro'. At this time it does not work.
- WB's RTE (TinyMCE) implementation has an issue with the 'styles' dropdown being misplaced at times. There is no fix at this time.
- WB's RTE (TinyMCE) implementation had an issue with Umbraco v6.1.x when sorted. There is now a fix! Replace your /umbraco/Plugins/WidgetBuilder/WidgetBuilder.js with this.
