11 Feb Empty Sidekick 4 common ways to fix it Adobe CQ5
Did it ever happen to you? You are developing your components and there is nothing to add in the sidekick, or even worse, you become a bug (with no clues) in which they tell you, “hey! The sidekick doesn’t show any component, we need it for now so we can continue testing our components for the next release”. No stress, I will tell you the four most common ways to get rid of it 😉
- Design Mode: Go to edit mode and press Design on your Parsys component, check if all your desired components are there, click OK.
- Empty your browser’s cache: Sounds simple? Yes, I know, but you would be surprised about how many times will this fix your problem. The reason behind is that CQ5 caches lots of things in your browser’s cache and you may be seeing and old version of it.
- IDs: Repeated IDs in your HTML code can also make your Sidekick lose its components, check if you have something like that.
