Issue with parsys div showing up on footer on publish


Level 2


We need to remove the parsys tag on the publish instance.So far I have done the following for the same.We are on AEM 6.2.

1)Added the cq:htmlTag node at the component level so that the div tags get generated as per the structure mentioned in the cq:htmlTag node.

2)Overlay the parsys.jsp to apps for the following change to render the div without parsys -
if(mode == publish){ IncludeOptions.getOptions(request, true).forceSameContext(Boolean.TRUE).setDecorationTagName("");

3)Added the sly tags to the template by replacing the div tags.

4)Include parsysLimiter on the footer.

The updates do not work for the footer.Please advise.

Please have a look at this article:- Remove component wrapper divs in CQ/AEM - CoderMagnet - JAVA JCR AEM Sightly Resource

// This article is what you are looking. It helps in Remove enclosing component divs in AEM

This issue is resolved.ParsysLimiter worked fine but there was an environmental issue causing the code to not reflect properly.

@kautuk - we have tried the options suggested in the link you provided but have an issue in the edit mode of the author.

Could you please help reopen this issue.

Option 1 -

We were able to get rid of the parsys tags with following code but not the parbase tags that come along with the editing.

<sly data-sly-test="${wcmmode.edit}">

<sly data-sly-resource="${'par_above' @ resourceType='wcm/foundation/components/parsys'}" ></sly>


Option 2 -

We therefore tried but it disables the edit mode on author although it would successfully remove the tags -

<sly data-sly-test = "${wcmmode.preview || wcmmode.disabled}">

<sly data-sly-use.parsysLimiter="${'com.projectname.test.models.ParsysLimiter'}" />


Content of the ParsysLimiter File -

public class ParsysLimiter {


private SlingHttpServletRequest request;


public void init() {

if (WCMMode.DISABLED.equals(WCMMode.fromRequest(request))) {

request.setAttribute(ComponentContext.BYPASS_COMPONENT_HANDLING_ON_INCLUDE_ATTRIBUTE, Boolean.FALSE);
