Updating Global Blocks "...will not affect existing content based on that particular global block."


Hello fellow EPiServer users,

On page 32 of the "User's Guide for EPiServer Composer 4.0" there is an information box that states:

"When you update a global block, this will not affect existing content based on that particular global block".  

What does this mean in practice? I was expecting to create a global block for contact details, that can be placed on many pages. Then when the contact details need to be updated, to edit them in one place (as an administrator), and the change to appear on all the pages that contain the global block. Under what circumstances would this not be true?

Hi Karen,

My guess it's a typo/bug in the documentation. I belive it will work just as you are expecting it to.

I tried it on and it work as you expect it. It updates the information on all the places the global block is used.

Hi Petter

Thank you. I will have a play to see if it does the same for me too.
