Careful when you import that design manager package (part 2)

10 May

After my last post we started looking for more possible content type corruption introduced by Design Manager Export/import process.

it appears to impact other content type besides just “page”. we are seeing corruption in “article page” and “welcome page” as well.

article page is missing:

  • Page content, Summary Links, Byline, Article Date, Image Caption

Welcome page is missing:

  • Page content, Summary Links,┬áSummary Links 2

working on documenting all the content types that are not being exported fully.

Looking through some issues we were seeing with roll up images not appearing after you check-in and publish a page, and some ULS log message about a column not being defined, it appears that the process of exporting and importing a Design Manger package will corrupt some out of the content types, specifically for pages.
