Comparing PageTypeBuilder and EPiServer 7 Preview typed pages (part 1 of 3)

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.

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.
