Kentico 10 MVC site export import problems

David Yu asked on September 11, 2017 15:59

Create a mvc site. Export the site use default setting. Then import to another computer use default setting. Try to edit any page type, can't see "Fields" and some other items in the left side menu.

Did you try going to System -> Macros -> Signatures and resigning?

Anything in the event log?

What's System -> Macros -> Signatures and resigning? I didn't do that, just use default settings export/import.

Log into Kentico, go to the Systems module, click on "Macros" on the left hand side, then Signatures, and resign the old macro signatures.

When you import stuff from one site to another, macro conditions that Kentico has may become 'invalid' because macro signatures are based either on the macro hash key value in the web.config, or the database settings. So these are probably different from your other environment.

Clearing cache and restarting application in the System module can't hurt either.
