Properties appearing in the wrong tabs


Hi all

Ive got a bit of an odd problem that I cannot get my head round. My site is based off of the AlloyTech MVC project, all of my page types inherit from SitePageData which includes the base properties for all of my page types. Some of these properties such as the MetaDescription and MetaKeywords are placed in the MetaData Tab with the following:

            GroupName = Global.GroupNames.MetaData,
            Order = 300)]
        public virtual string MetaDescription { get; set; }


However on a couple of my page types, for some reason these appear in the Content tab instead of the MetaData tab. The only thing that is slightly different with these page types is that it extends another page type which itself extends from SitePageData, rather than directly extending it.

Has anyone else seen any problems like this?

Many Thanks

Have you tested to reset the properties? If you add a property to a tab it might and change this after some development they still might be on the old tab. Try to go to admin mode and your specific pagetype, select the property and click reset and check if that is working.

I executed a query to reset all my properties so that they would show up in their correct tabs. Thread here.

Hi All

Thank you very much for your help!! Resetting the individual properties for the page type within the admin area worked perfectly.

Many thanks

Kind Regards
