Dive in the Sitecore Swamp


Sitecore TDS Tips

  • Sync the templates/rendering first, then sync content
  • Sync and refresh until nothing comes up. TDS may not complete all the synchronizations in one sync, always refresh until no more new things are found. Sometimes, you maybe need to sync three or four times until everying in sync.
  • When you GLV (get latest version) from TFS, the TDS may not include all the items. When happens, It complains some errors about field missing. You can manually include the item into the project.
  • When you use TDS with GlassMapper CodeGen. After the TDS Sync, the code generated may not be perfect, errors sometimes. When it happens, simply right click the TDS project in VS solution explorer, and select Re-Generate Code for all items
