    Importing content on site load

    With the latest version of uSync Content Edition, is there a setting to have content display right away once content is loaded into Instance B? At the moment, I have to log into Instance B and click the full import button to see my content changes. It would be nice if we didn't have to login and click any buttons, but instead simply fresh the browser.

    If Import is set to true in the usyncbackoffice.config file then the content should import at startup so you will see it on instance b.

    However by default content is compared by publish date, and only content that is newer will be imported over existing content, so it might be worth checking the date/times on the sites.

    you can switch how usync compares content in the usynccore.config file.

    The default is Newer (so only newer content is updated)


    But you can switch it to Mismatch - will update content when it doesn't match


    You will get a lot more content updates using the mismatch method, but if someone updates content on the target this will get overwritten by the source irrespective of when it was updated so you can get old content overwriting new if you are not careful.

    if you installed content edition after uSync had first ran then you might need to do a full export to get all existing content into the folders. ?
