Hi, I have already gone through some blogs related to this problem statement.

But i am not getting the placeholder to drag and drop the component in template. I am creating the base page component by extending the core component.

Kindly suggest me the solution.

The Images are really burry for me. I am unable to understand the structure you have.

 

Requesting you to please refer to WKND templates and template-type. For a root container, you need to have "/structure/jcr:content/root" as indicated in the image below:

Hi, Please check your template and choose structure mode to unlock the LayoutContainer (this is the key to have drag and drop functionality)

Also, I recommend to add an additional new LayoutContainer (also set the policy, to add allowed desired components) on the page in Structure mode and unlock this.

for more details check below part of this documentation link

Let me explain what I did from starting.

 

1) First I created a page component having  resourceSuperType path of Core Page component path.

2) Then I created a custom template type which is having resource type path of my own Page Component.

3) Then I created a editable template by using my custom template type.

Path of existing template type:

/libs/settings/wcm/template-types/html5page

Hi Monish, Thanks for explaining the issue and I have tried the same steps and i am able to see the drag-drop functionality. May it could be something wrong with the environment setup. I'm attaching my demo package that i created, try to upload it using package manager side on your side and see if you are able to see it using this.

Hi @monish7 

you are using a static template, allowing the template in /etc/design can you see the "drag" and "drop" sections.

Thanks

To be able to Drag-n-Drop components, you would first need to allow them to be added to the container.

 

- Go to the template

- CLick on the Root container

- Go to its policy

- ENable the components you would like to add. Save the policy

- Refresh template

- You should be able to add components now
