SP 1 NewsView LayoutTemplatePath not loading template
I must say I'm a little disappointed with the lack of response on this topic, I've re-submitted as a support ticket, it's been over 48 hours and I still have not received any response on this topic. Not even a "We're looking into this."
I'm not quite sure what I'm paying for with the price hike for Sitefinity 4, but support is certainly not it; it seems more like the extra cost is in new bugs and missing functionality from Sitefinity 3.7.
Consider me an unhappy customer.
Hello Michael Diolosa,
We are sorry for the late response. This is a bug in the SP1 and we will fix for the upcoming Q1 Release.
Unfortunately, the workaround, which we can provide you is not good enough, but it should do the trick. If you are not pressed by the time, you can wait for the new release.
Here is the workaround:
Update with SQL script sf_presentation_data and change app_name of the records for the templates you use external templates. For example you can disable all database templates for news with the following scripts.:
Thank you for getting back to me, I'm sorry for writing such an arsey email but unfortunately I AM pressed for time. I will do this, I'm hoping this does fix the problem. I will write back with any information I may have on how well this solution works. I don't mind disabling the internal templates as I'm not using any of them, all templates built we are custom coding so this shouldn't have any problems with the project.
Thank you again, this has definitely fixed the issue. I have marked down a note to replace the app_name back to the previous settings when the Q1 Release is launched.
You have got to be kidding me. Was this "bug" noted in the release notes? Doubt it. Now all my custom templates are broken from anything from search results, to download list, pretty much anything with a LayoutTemplatePath set to my custom ascx templates does not work.
