Layoutset Problem

Hi Experts,

I have customised DiscussionGroup Layoutset(for Admin). I have made the Advance copy of the Layout set and removed some functionalities which i dont need.

After that i have mentioned the Layoutset in the KM iView Properties.

When i view the discussion Group it is working fine. The New Layout set is being applied but when i click the back link in the discussion, I am getting the old Layout set.

I have no idea why is it coming.

Please do help me to proceed further.

    Hi Rudradev,

    This is rather known issue. Let me try to explain how it works. Firstly, the "back" link that you use is technically created by the UI command "SingleDiscBack". You can determine the LayoutSet to be used (for the DiscussionGroups iview) by changing the attribute "Parameters" of this UI command ("SingleDiscBack").

    Secondly, LayouSet "SingleDiscExplorer" is used to explore all posts of a single discussion. This is set in your custom LayoutSet in the "CollectionListRenderer" settings as contentLinkCommand for rnd:displayname property (Displayed Properties). The contentLinkCommand is simple UI Command "join_discussion_thread" where "SingleDiscExplorer" is set.

    The configuration hierarchy from the LayoutSet "SingleDiscExplorer" downwards to the "SingleDiscHeaderTitleComponent", where the UI Command "SingleDiscBack" is configured, looks like:

    LayoutSet "SingleDiscExplorer" references CollectionListRenderer "SingleDiscHeaderCollectionListRenderer" has the Attribute "Components" with value: "SingleDiscHeaderTitleComponent" has the Attribute "Parameters" with value: "SingleDiscUIBackCommandAlias=SingleDiscBack".

    Hope it helps.

    Best Regards,

    Michal M.
