Sitefinity Thunder connects, but no widget templates show up

  • Sitefinity Thunder connects, but no widget templates show up
  • When I connect to one of my local Sitefinity projects using Thunder, no website templates or common widget templates appear in Sitefinity Explorer.  The connection is active and whenever I refresh it says that I've successfully connected.  

    Things I've tried:
    - This is happening for one particular project, Thunder is working fine with my other Sitefinity projects
    - I've tried re-installing the Thunder module
    - I've double checked the credentials used in the connection

    Why aren't my templates appearing?

    Thanks,
    Matt
  • Hello Matt,

    I suspect there is some problem with your connection.
    Make sure you have latest Thunder version - update it from Visual Studio Tools >> Extensions and Updates and after update re-install Thunder in your Sitefinity project.
    You may also try to create a different admin user for thunder.

    Let me know if you need additional directions/assistance.

  • Hi Vassil,

    Thanks for the response.  I should have had this in the OP, but I have the latest version of Sitefinity Thunder and the project is using Sitefinity 5.4.4020.0.  

    I've also tried adding another admin user, and once again I am encountering the same problem.  To re-iterate, I am able to connect and get a notice saying that everything has "connected successfully," but within Sitefinity Explorer all I see are the headers for Website Templates and Common Widget Templates, with nothing underneath them.

    Thanks,
    Matt
  • Hello Matt,

    I`ve successfully downloaded and set-up your project and indeed there is some issue with Thunder. I will need some time to investigate this problem and as soon have some result I will write you back.

  • Hi Vassil,

    Thanks for taking a look at my project.  I'm glad you were able to verify that there is a problem and I'm not going crazy haha.  Please let me know as soon as you find a solution.

    In the meantime, do you know of a way to create a Dynamic Items Field Control Selector without using Thunder?  If I am able to do that, then I should be able to continue work on my project.

    Thanks,
    Matt
  • Hello Matt,

    Regarding the other question for Dynamic Items Field Control Selector - there is a Sitefinity Documentation covering this topic.

  • Hi Vassil,

    Thanks for the response.  I've already tried going through the steps in that documentation, and when I did, I also reached a roadblock that is related to my issue with Sitefinity Thunder.  

    When I go to add the selector, during Step 4 of the documentation I reach a screen that says I have no dynamic modules.  It also will not let me check the "register a virtual path" box.  I think I reach this screen because technically I am connected to the Thunder, but there are no modules appearing.  If you have any suggestions on how to solve this problem, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Matt
  • I'm having a similar issue...fiddler shows the connection happens but then I get a weird can't append headers error, and no templates appear in VS2012.
  • @Matt

    My problem was that I was logged in in the backend (browser) and have a SBE License. Only one concurrent user - remember.

    I could connect with thunder but not get any templates. As soon as I logged out it worked.

    Maybe you have to many concurrent users as well

    @Telerik

    Here we go again.

    1) How about a default role in Backend 'Thunder' which only lets connect via thunder nothing else and not counting to concurrent users

    2) How about when connecting informing us 'max number of concurrent users reached. Log-off at least one to connect

    Anyone getting this, can you open fiddler and see if your result is what I'm seeing too (attached)

    @markus that's not what I'm seeing...doesn't matter which user I use or their logged in status...nothing shows in the explorer
  • Hello guys,

     I just wanted to let you know that we are looking into this issue and we will post an update here once we have resolved and what was causing it.

  • I've also been having this issue for a while... I can't recall which version broke this functionality for me though.  I just upgraded to the latest version (1.2.9.0), but still no templates appear... Is everyone else using the latest version also?
  • I know it's in Fiddler :)  Forgive my naiveté, but I am unsure how you got that?  I'm not too well versed in using Fiddler...Are you attaching Fiddler to VS?    AND  IT'S THE DAMDEST THING!  IT LITERALLY JUST STARTED WORKING!  Really really weird...  

  • I have had a ticket open for a couple weeks...I just keep getting it blamed on me, they're supposed to debug it sometime, but no idea when that's happening.

    Mike, can you try the fiddler trick for me please just quick?  ...just see if you get the same error?
