The following conditions must be met before installing the demo template package:

  • Episerver CMS 5 R2 SP1 or SP2 is required.
  • Templates from the public package must be installed. These templates are used by the demo templates.

Note: If you have modified the templates from the public package, you may receive unexpected results when compiling or viewing the Web site. The demo template package installation does not overwrite any files included in the public package.

Known Limitations

  • Certain limitations applies to some of the templates, please check Template Limitations for further information.
  • Due to a bug found after the CMS 5 R2 SP1 release regarding friendly URLs, we needed to include  a temporary workaround inside the demo templates workrooms. In the WorkroomPagebase.cs there is a javascript launched to rewrite the value of the action attribute inside the page form tag.
  • Certain modifications need to be done in order to avoid problems with IIS7 (Win 2008) http modules. You should add the following to the configuration/system.webServer/modules section:
    <add name="BlogEventHandlers" type="EPiServer.Blog.EventHandlers, EPiServer.Blog" />
