In my previous post I talked about "mapping between PageType attributes in PageTypeBuilder and typed pages in EPiServer 7". In this post I want to complete the series and talk about the mapping of property definitions in typed pages.
In my previous post I talked about the the "Differences when referencing the page type from a page template". This post describes the mapping between PageType attributes in PageTypeBuilder and typed pages in EPiServer 7 Preview.
EPiServer has introduced a whole load of cool new features to the forthcoming EPiServer 7 Preview. One of them is native support for strongly typed page types. Strongly typed page types has been available in the popular PageTypeBuilder project in previous versions of EPiServer for a while but now its built right into the core framework.
This is exciting stuff and something I am sure we are all eager to use. In many scenarios I am I think there is a good chance that projects which are due to be upgraded to EPiServer 7 already use PageTypeBuilder. So I wanted to put a post together that compares PageTypeBuilder with EPiServer 7 typed pages, including how to map from one to the other.
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 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.
