Issue with wcm/msm/components/ghost

Hello Team,

 

I read through all other community posts and internet before coming.

 

I have an MSM with master pages setup. While i have created live copy pages and deleted the one of the child item in a container by breaking the inheritance, i am getting my current component converted to "wcm/msm/components/ghost". That is fine as it will help us in re-enabling the inheritance but due that it is causing problem in Publisher as well since it is getting extra <div class="ghost <my-comp-name>"></div> since by default all childs under the layout container are getting pulled..

 

<div class="ghost <my-comp-name>"></div>

 

<sly data-sly-use.container="com.adobe.cq.wcm.core.components.models.LayoutContainer" data-sly-repeat="${container.items}" data-sly-resource="${item.path @ decoration=true, cssClassName='my-comp-name'}"></sly>

 

@kautuk_sahni Please help

Hi @Shashi_Mulugu,

As you said, MSM ghost node is needed in author for re-enabling inheritance in future. 

In publish, as you are listing the resource items from LayoutContainer, you can write a custom implementation of LayoutContainer using below actual implementation as sample. (mapping it to your component resourceType in @Model annotation)

In readItems() method, return the resource list except the ghost resource on conditional basis.

Yep looks like that is the only option. Not sure why cannot it be OOTB core
