Hi, I was doing a spindoctor POC for a customer to see if I could implement it into their existing website. I got some of the way, but hit a problem when trying to use Content selectors.
The thing is that I have a lot of small snippets of content (shared content) that is placed in a folder that lives in the root directory next the website itself like so: - Content - Website - Shared content On the frontpage of the website i then tried to use the SpindoctorLibrary:SelectSingleNode('somecontentselector') to get some nodes (after making sure the website visitor had a profile). However the extension does not return any xml. It seems the extension "SelectSingleNode" only returns anything if the nodes live somewhere beneeth the Website folder. Is this true ? Or am i doing somehing wrong.
Maybe your "somecontentselector" doesn't match any nodes ?
It should match at least 2 nodes in the setup i have. I am affraid that the extension can't find any nodes because the "Shared content" folder does not have the same hostnames attached. But I am not sure, I would just like to have it confirmed before I spend more time debugging.
Can you show me your xpath query ?
I haven't used an Xpath query, I just used the "Parent node" selector (In the "Output" tree under the spindoctor section).
I'm not famliar with spindoctor, but I have a suspicion that your selector is not correct.
I'm almost certain it is not a selector issue seeing as I use a spindoctor extension to grab elements and not an xpath query.
your solution should work.The nodes not being under the main website node, but under a shared folder, should NOT be a problem.
Are you absolutely sure these nodes are published, as Spindoctor tries to fetch them from the Xml?
If they are, can you email some screenshots detailing all steps you took?
I would be particularly interested in:- Screenshot of the license- Screenshot of the URL you are using to access the site- Screenshot of your content nodes- Screenshot of you content selector nodes
If that doesn't help you can WeTransfer us a dump of the database and website (please add admin password) and we'll have an in-depth look.
Hi Wouter, Thank you for your reply.
I am glad to hear that my site structure shouldn't be a problem. I must be doing something wrong then. I will give it a try again and if I still can't get it to work I will post some additional information.
