We have created an editable template and baked in some components into it and JCR node structure looks like this.
but i have removed all the baked in components from code and delployed it... but already authored components under root is not showing up in page.. only components present in responsive grid are available.
please let me know if there any specification that components will only show up if it is under parsys/grid/responsive grid.
In order to be able to select a component and drag and drop it, the component must have a dialog.
Components do not have to be under parsys/grid/responsive, whenever you are creating a template, you can put a component outside of a parsys or a layout container.
"but already authored components under root is not showing up in page." - do you see any error in a log or in browser's dev tool? Do components have some dependencies (a core/proxy component, a sling model etc) that are not deployed yet and hence it causes a rendition failure?
Have you defined the edit config and dialog? If so there is something wrong with dialog structure. You can still see the component structure in content tree in the left content finder. Check there first.
