Last week i haven't had time for development in EPiServer since i was writing documentation.When i finally continued developing i started EPiServer in editmode and saw the following:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/106012288/LayoutError1.png (Insert/Edit Link functionality not working in google chrome)
My right pane, normally filled with 'Blocks' and 'Files', now is completely empty.Instead, 'Blocks' and 'Files' suddenly shows up in the left pane.
Error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'id' of undefined.
In our development environment all developers connect to the same EPiServer database.When i use the development machine of another developer, and log into EPiServer editmode using my Windows login credentials, everything works normally. Therefore i think i can conclude that this issue is somehow related to my local sources.
I know i probably could just reinstall EPiServer CMS and setup a new development environment, but beside the fact that this takes time we would like to know what lead to this issue, if it could happen again and how to solve it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
This has happened to a few people. All I can suggest for now is to reset you're views to default. Clear your cookie and check out the following blog post: http://world.episerver.com/Blogs/Linus-Ekstrom/Dates/2013/1/Resetting-your-EPiServer-views/
Excellent that worked! Many thanks!
However i think something is odd here: - Log in on different development machine --> No issues - Log in on my development machine --> Issue 1. Clear cache + Close browser + Restart IIS etc. --> Still an issue (I would expect this would already fix the issue) 2. Run 'Reset Views' script + Clear cache + Restart IIS etc. --> Fixes the issue
Also, i can't seem to mark this post as ansfered anymore. Can someone do this for me or am i overlooking something?
When you cleared the cache did that remove the cookies as well?
I think the icon to mark as answered is probably behind my profile picture ;) It's a small bug with the new world layout which I've reported.
Yea that's exactly my point.
On machine x, where no cookies yet existed, it works fineOn machine y, where user cookies exist, i clear the cache including the cookies, and yet it still doesn't work after thatOnly after deleting 'user preferences' and clearing cache it works. To me, that's sounds like the user settings are also bound to the machine somehow...
Anyway, it's just a sidenode and since i'm not familiar with EPiServer internals i'm probably forgetting something important ;)
We have also noticed a few problemen with the layout. Is this reported as a bug and will be fixed in future releases?
Reset the layout seems like a less good suggestion for our editors but it sure helps for now.
We've been encountering this in our 7.5 project. Hitting the reset button on the user profile page resolves it for the time being, but it still reappears. Has this been resolved in one of the later patches or is there a bug id for it? I was unable to find it in the bug list.
