Hello Experts,

I am new to CQ5 and I am trying to teach myself this technology. I have created my first page and component. But I am unable to see the sidekick. Please help.

Hello Hareesh,

Please check if you have the init jsp included in your application or not?

<cq:include script="/libs/wcm/core/components/init/init.jsp"/>

If yes then check if the design path is configured correctly. Hope this helps.

Thanks

I'm having the same issue. Currently, I'm following the basic the-basics/website tutorial available at this link: https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/develop/the-basics/website.html

 

I've done to the word, everything mentioned all the way to the top navigation component. Step 4 in Using the Foundation Page Scripts suggests that I should have a Sidekick visible at this time and that the following block of code should be in the page source.

CQ.WCM.launchSidekick("/content/mywebsite/en/products", {propsDialog: "/libs/foundation/components/page/dialog", locked: false locked: false }); 

However, that's not the case. Sidekick is not visible and that block of code is not present in the source. I did some research and found out that the block of code is in /libs/wcm/core/components/init/init.jsp as already mentioned. That file is imported in head.jsp file.

What am I doing wrong? Can people point to what should I check? It seems that I've done everything as mentioned in the tutorial. I'll gladly add more info if needed.

Hi,

Follow the steps in this blog... http://www.codermag.net/2016/03/aem-sidekick-not-visible.html

In simpler words - open the products page using the following URL https://localhost:5433/cf#/content/mywebsite/en/products.html

Instead of double clicking on the Products node within CRXDE Lite, use the AEM sites page to open the products page in Classic UI.

It worked for me.
