Resetting your EPiServer views
Note: This functionality was added to "My Settings->Display Options" in EPiServer 7.5.
In EPiServer 7 it’s possible to personalize your views quite extensively. Unfortenately, there is currently no easy way of resetting your views back to “system default”. I have created a simple self executing aspx file that clears add the personalized panels for your views (Currently this applies to the dashboard and new cms edit view). Place the code below in an empty file with an .aspx extension and browse to it to clear your settings:
When you change the size of the components (or gadgets if you like) inside a pane we currently store these settings inside a cookie. The code above has code to remove these cookies but the path needs to match the path of the cookie to be able to remove it. This seems to be quite dynamic to I have commented out this code by default. If you want to have this feature you can uncomment this code and just set the correct path value for your site, for instance “/myuipath/cms/”.
We are planning to use local storage in the browsers to remove the need to have cookies since this add size for each request.
