  • Content Part Will Not Update If Invisible

    Today we decided that auto-updating our entries' urls when their names change is a rather good idea. Our entries are ContentItems consisting of our custom EntryPart, an AutoroutePart, and some more that are not important here. I thought it would be a matter of minutes to get this user story done. Simply set the correct Autoroute setting inside a migration step and it should work. Well, it didn't.

    • Fixed web.config problem that required redoing config of static file folders in old modules and themes.
    • Restored the Sites.config file, that is setting Autofac defaults and transaction isolation level.

    Meeting notes:

    • Lots of pull requests were pulled, including tenant info in logs, new role commands. Perf improvements to large file imports.
    • Changes in config for directories containing static resources cause problems potentially for all module and theme authors. Sébastien will look into it, but that may lead to not shipping an Orchard 1.8 before there is a new gallery, and that gallery might have to start empty, because many or most modules won't work.
    • Orchardproject.net discussion going on in forums.
    • Orchard on Mono: it works!
    • Projection RSS: there are two issues. One is that some projections shouldn't have RSS. The other is that the rss associated with projections is inflexible, which is especially visible in the case of external posts where the url should not be the url of the local content item, but the url of the external post. Ultimate solution will be to have RSS as projections.
