Freeze the specific components in authoring page

Avatar

Level 6

The requirement is to freeze the specific components / disable the WCMMODE in a page lever or in template level.

 

Any idea how to achieve that one.

Idea here being  you do not want authors to be able to remove components from a given page?

AEM does not really support a freeze component feature. The best way to proceed here is to use cq:include to include components into a page:

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/cq/5-6-1/developing/components.html#<cq:include>

<%@taglib prefix="cq" uri="http://www.day.com/taglibs/cq/1.0" %><%
%><div class="center">
    <cq:include path="trail" resourceType="foundation/components/breadcrumb" />
    <cq:include path="title" resourceType="foundation/components/title" />
    <cq:include script="redirect.jsp"/>
    <cq:include path="par" resourceType="foundation/components/parsys" />
</div>

Hi ,

If you want to disable the WCMMode for a particular component then most probably you can use <sly data-sly-resource="${ 'text' @ resourceType='wcm/foundation/components/text', wcmmode='disabled'}" ></sly> to disable the component when you are including it at the page level.

Hi 

So you are in need to disable the wcmmode for a specific component? That can now be done via the wcmmode-option when including a component.

<footer data-sly-resource="${ @ path='footer', resourceType='myproject/footer', wcmmode='disabled'}"></footer>

I hope this will help you.

Thanks and Regards

In this case you can make this components design level components as in these 3 components could only be edited in the design mode and the remove the access of the design mode for content authors. In that case the user having access to design would only be able to edit the components.

But a drawback is if these components are used elsewhere then also the components would not be editable by the content authors.
