EPiServer Composer serving up "old" versions of pages

Jun 18, 2013  

I recently encountered an issue where EPiServer Composer appeared to be serving up old versions of pages, even after they have been published. This was identified on EPiServer CMS 6 R2 and Composer 4.

The issue was traced to a particular behaviour where editors copy/pasted a Composer page that contained global Composer blocks. After this operation the newly created page would revert back to an "old" version that contained no Composer blocks. This happened after a period of time and to compound the issue it is only noticable in view mode and not edit mode.

EPiServer CMS 6 R2, Page Type Builder and EPiServer Composer - a cautionary tale

May 31, 2011  

This post describes a particular issue that occurs when copy/pasting pages in EPiServer CMS 6 R2 when using EPiServer Composer and Page Type Builder.

The problem

The problem occurs if all of the following are true:

  • Your site uses EPiServer CMS 6 R2
  • You are using Composer
  • Page Type Builder is being used
  • You are using Page Type Builder to restrict available page types
  • Users try to copy a page or pages that container Composer pages

The result is that the background paste operation fails.
