Extended component not showing in layout container

Hello community ! I have been following the tutorials from https://solutionpartners.adobe.com/training/learning_program/learningProgram52525.html?PRIME_BASE=ht...

and I am stuck with a extended component I am trying to use. I have extended it from core/wcm/components/breadcrumb/v2/breadcrumb and name it as breadcrumb3 inside the We.Retail folder, however at the time I try to put it available in the container using the policies I can not access to it. Please have a look at the images.

Hello @JohnGa2 

 

If we have 3 containers on a page, the Sidebar will list components for all 3 of them. But, you will only be able to drop the component, that is configured for that container.

 

Better is to select the container, click on + icon. This would ensure that only the allowed components for that container are listed.

 

Also, can you please make sure that these components have a dialog.

Hi @JohnGa2 In the second screenshot, I see the components visible in the behind i.e., breadcrumb2, breadcrumb3.
Can you try checking this on any page created out of this template and check if you are able to add them and if you are trying to add in template check the container's policy from which you are adding if that policy has these components allowed in it.

Thanks,

Hello @krishna_sai !!! Thanks for your reply. Yes ! the component is there, but I can not add it by dragging it. I forgot to add this screengrab, I made sure to add the accurate policy, but still it does not work on the template according with the video training. In theory, the group "We.Retail" should be available besides "General" as you may see in screengrab 2. Thank you !!!

Hello @JohnGa2 ,

According to your screenshot, your policies seem correct. Then you also should be able to see the "Insert New Component" list on a page. If so have you checked your content tree?

Sometimes for CSS issues after dragging in the page component is not visible.
