Template Coordinator


So we have upgraded a site to version 11.2 episerver cms and running into a problem in regards to the template coordinator.  It appears to be ignoring the display option tag and just falling back to the default=true value by default(of course right?).  This is all fine but appears to be ignoring my display options.  This was working before the upgrade so not sure what has changed in the decision algorithm to determine template model-> and views but curious if anyone has ran into this and what their solution was.  Attached is the template coordinator code.

    public class TemplateCoordinator : IViewTemplateModelRegistrator
public void Register(TemplateModelCollection viewTemplateModelRegistrator)
viewTemplateModelRegistrator.RegisterBlock("IconBulletBlock", false, new[] { GlobalSettings.DisplayOptions.CTAIconBullet });
 public static class TemplateCoordinatorExtensions
        public static void RegisterBlock(this TemplateModelCollection viewTemplateModelRegistrator, string viewName, bool availableWithoutTag, params string[] tags)
            viewTemplateModelRegistrator.Add(typeof(T), new TemplateModel
                Name = viewName,
                Inherit = true,
                AvailableWithoutTag = availableWithoutTag,
                Path = TemplateCoordinator.BlockPartialPath(viewName + ".cshtml"),
                Tags = tags

I'm having the same issue. Have you found any workaround yet? And from which version of EPiServer did you upgrade from?

Best regards

Hey Henrik, I upgraded from the minor version previous to 11 so the last version in 10.  I did open a bug report to episerver as their current version 11 alloy site experiences the same issues you and I are having.  It appears you add the model to the template registrar, but it ignores it if it already exists.  I think that is fine but i don't think it checks the Tag associated with the model.  It should be    ModelType and Tag instead of just ModelType.

Thanks for the information. It would be nice if you could keep me updated on the status of the support ticket!

I sure will.  I got a response, but the response was links to documentation.  I sent a followup to their ticket with a response on how to replicate it again.  So hopefully, we can get an answer soon.
