Republish pages after editing content blocks

  • Republish pages after editing content blocks
  • We have experienced major problems with shared content blocks on one of our sitefinity 4.2 sp1 websites. After editing content blocks on the multi language site (Swedish, Danish, English) the content blocks disappears on the pages where the blocks are published. We're forced to (re)publish all pages using the actual blocks, to make them reappear.

    Over all the content block module acts strange and inconstant, warning signs, outdated labels and shared labels appears without discernible pattern. In the administration we have experienced really slow performance when accessing the services, approximately 5-10 seconds Is that normal?

    It always helps you you post what version you are using.

  • What do you meen by version? As I wrote in the first sentence it is a Sitefinity 4.2 sp1 site. Or do you meen something else with version, like standard or professional. If so it is a standard site.

  • Dear Kalle

    Sorry it seems my eyes did not see everything. I usually look more at 4.1 1574 numbers then SP1 and so on.

  • Hello Kalle,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik support.

    What you describe is not the expected behaviour of the content blocks, so it seems this is a bug which will be logged in our internal system for fixing.
    What do you mean by "strange and inconstant, warning signs, outdated labels and shared labels appears without discernible pattern" - could you give us an example or send us a screenshot ?

  • Is there any update on this issue, we have built a new site using shared content blocks and are having the same issue. If my english page looks right, when I go to spanish i'm missing some shared elements, then I go to the page and publish it again and refresh, now my spanish page looks right but then when I go back to the english page I am missing shared content. I cannot get both english and spanish to show the shared content at the same time. Any ideas? The screenshots attached below will show the progression described above, top left link is the english page, top right link is the spanish page with content missing. The bottom left image is after publishing the spanish page again, no changes just open and republish then the bottom right image is after clicking back over to english showing the content now missing from the english page. We are developing on 4.3.1885.0

  • Hello Aaron,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik support.
    There are few known issues related to Shared content in multilingual which are planned to be fixed really soon.
    To understand whether your problem is related I need some more details - have you recently upgraded the mentioned project? Is the spanish language version added after the content block was already created in the english language version?

    Looking forward to your answers.

  • Hi,

    Same issue with two languages EN / FR. One version of the shared content block disappears when the other version is published.

    Is this fixed ?

    Thanks,

    John.
  • Hi John,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik support. This issue is not resolved yet. It is more complex than we expected and will do our best to include the fix in our next release.

  • I have just created 30 ENG&SPA pages with multi-language Shared Content blocks, and I'm experiencing the issue (when publishing in Spanish, the English disappears... republishing in English makes them work for a while, until they disappear again). I'm on a tight schedule, so I'd need to know if there's any fix/workaround, or if I should start replacing all the shared content with static content??
  • Yeah, good luck with that... ;) as far as I know they have not yet fixed this issue but you may want to wait to hear from them for confirmation.

    On our site we ended up working around the problem by making our own control for shared content. Basically it works like this, the control we made simply gets placed where we want the shared content and when you edit the details of the control it asks for the name of the file you'd like to reference, we then built the two files, one english with a filename_en and one spanish with a filename_es. So we have a control that looks in a speicified folder on the server for the filename we associated and since in sitefinity you can control elements between localization we have it pull the file with the _en when it's english and the one with the _es when its spanish. It's essentially doing a roundabout include and with the file outside of sitefinity we can edit it as if it were a content item. Hope that makes sense...
