We're trying to set up SDI on pages that use authored templates on 6.3 but aren't having any luck. We have a user widget in the header that uses dynamic data but we aren't seeing anything happen in page rendering when we flag the header component as being an SDI resource type. We are seeing includes being properly written when we indicate a component in the authored section of a page using that template, so we know SDI is set up properly. Is there anything that needs to be done to get the two features working together?
We've created components, we've added them to our authored templates and they are working fine. But when we try to designate the components in the template should be rendered through SDI its not working. When we create a page using those templates the components we drop on the page that are designated as needing SDI are being rendered with the proper server side include tags. So authorble templates are working, sling dynamic includes are working, but we can't get them to work together.
I am not aware of any examples that show both of them working together. Most of the editable templates examples use HTL components - which is really best practice.
I will check internally to see if anyone has used these together.
Talking to some industry community experts - reply was: " some indirection between SDI + Editable Templates when it tries to load the template configuration could be responsible for the issue."
I would log a bug here,
