Hello guys,

I just want to give you a heads up that I think I found a problem when using the news editor web part.

I found the problem to be.. that you are not able to set the readmore page property inside the web part properties screen.

The work around is.. to hard code it, and place it on your own page and then link it to another page where the single reader web part is placed.

I think it would be a good idea to allow this property to be set in the web properties if possible.

Unless. maybe there something I am doing wrong ? Im not sure what all the connect web parts feature was about..

Hi,

News module has two properties that can be used to set the "Read more" page

- "ExternalReadMorePage" which is used to set the external "Read more" page using the UI
- "ReadMorePage" which is used in the UI and Development scenario for setting the "Read more" page programmatically by using the PageID of the MonoX page

For more information about the Connect Web parts please read the MonoX manual section 4.2.4 Connect mode . This is the Web part mode that is rarely used because of the Web part connection workflow complexity. Microsoft has set strict rules about when the properties are need to be set so other Web part can be binded etc. So in most cases this doesn't suite your needs.

We are looking into the issue you have reported and we will get back to you soon.

Regards

Hi,

can you verify that when you type in the some page name in the ReadMorePage field that you get the list of pages ? Or if you get the error can you please send it back to us.

Thanks

I got it working by hardcoding my own ReadMorePage in the web property inside the file aspx page.

But when you drag and drop it on a dynamically configured web part zone.. you wont even get the property as a option to set.
ReadMorePage is missing ?
