REQUEST: Getting the search field back when selecting page reference


In EPiServer >7;

When creating a shortcut for a page, to an external url, you no longer have the search box available to enter the Page ID.

You have to manually click through the page tree to select the page you need. 

Any plans to get the search field back?

<p>Ah,&nbsp;my title might be a bit misleading.&nbsp;</p> <p>I'm referencing the "Select Page"&nbsp;box&nbsp;that appears when setting&nbsp;the Shortcut-property for a page, and selecting "Shortcut to page in EPiServer CMS":</p> <p><img src="" width="487" alt="" height="384" /></p> <p></p>

<p></p> <p>... and I have a search box in that dialogue.</p> <p><img src="" width="1210" alt="" height="855" /></p> <p></p> <p></p>

<p>Well, that's very strange :-)&nbsp;</p> <p>In my vanilla Alloy site&nbsp;I get the same dialogue as you, but in my up-to-date production site it's gone.</p> <p></p> <p>Edit: My inital screenshot was from&nbsp;<a href=""></a><span>&nbsp;which I guess is not up to speed with the latest releases. </span></p> <p><span>I'll look into why the search field is not showing in my live site running at the&nbsp;latest version.</span></p> <p><span></span></p> <p><span>Thanks!</span></p>

<p>Update: This was caused by the /modules/_protected folder containing older CMS.UI packages. This can typically happen if you are upgrading&nbsp;a site that is not stopped, and these files are in-use by the IIS worker process, thus not getting updated.</p>

<p></p> <p>Did you check your /modules/_protected folder? Are those packages also up to date?</p> <p></p>

<p></p> <p>You should have at least two subfolders, CMS and Shell. Both of those folders should have a zip file with the latest (same as the assemblies) version.</p> <p></p>
