Important Notes for Dynamicweb 8.7.1.x

  • Templates\Razor

    Type: Technical
    Title: Print out a message if @TemplateTags is in templates
    Feature details: If @TemplateTags() has been left in any Razor template, the template will now print out that it contains @TemplateTags, which it should not due to performance. Even if the @TemplateTags() is commented out in Razor, it still poses a problem: I.e. @*/@TemplateTags()*/ will not print the tags, but will still invoke that Tagexists returns true which gives a performance overhead.. So if that is present in a razor template, Dynamicweb will add the warning "TemplateTags() in code ({0}). Remove before going live..." printet out in the browser. {0} will be the template name
    Release: 8.7.1.0
