    Document Type composition updates don't update base doc type

    Let say I create a document type called compositeExample with fields A and B. and then create a base document type called baseExample, this is great and I can update fields A and B on any node that is created from the baseExample document type.

    Now the problem is, if I update the compositeExample DT, for example add a new field called C, this does not get published onto any baseExample nodes unless I first remove compositeExample as a composite and then re-add it. The problem with this is, removing a composite will also lose any data attached to the fields, so when it is re-added, add data will be reset back to empty.

    Hi Andy,

    have you tried to reload the content node structure?

    What version of umbraco are you using?

    Also try to go to the baseExample document type and just hit save there to see if that works.

    Thanks Michael. Hitting the Save button on the base document type did refresh fields.
