DDS Remap Type Admin Plug-in

After reading this blog post I was inspired to make an EPiServer CMS Admin Plug-in to allow a Type remap in the DDS to be done direct from the site. This will come in useful when a Type you store in the DDS has changed and it is not decorated with the EPiServerDataStoreAttribute and / or the AutomaticallyRemapStore property is not set to true.

The plug-in is available here as an EPiServer Add-on. I will also make the source code available shortly.

NOTE: There seems to be a caching bug in the DDS code which means that the remap isn’t always effective until the site is restarted. The bug has been reported (unofficially confirmed as a bug) and will hopefully be fixed in due course.
