We just upgraded our SXA from 1.7 to 1.8.1 and when we finished updating it, the add renderings window does not display the sections of the renderings.

I know this has been asked before, but it appears that it doesn't have an answer yet.

  • Did you run the content upgrade script from 170 to 181? Go to /sitecore/system/Settings/Foundation/Experience Accelerator/Upgrade/Current and type 1700 in "Version". Then run the upgrade scripts it prompts you for. – Mark Cassidy Apr 29 '19 at 9:26
  • @MarkCassidy just followed your procedure, the problem still persists. :( – Lala Apr 29 '19 at 10:56
  • Right. Well I wasn't sure - but it seemed worth a shot :-) – Mark Cassidy Apr 29 '19 at 10:57

I see such behaviour for the first time. I would check:

  • if the production environment is properly set - Add here dialogue is taking renderings differently than a toolbox. There is a special script in SXA which is generating toolbox. Check if all the themes are properly moved to the production (especially /sitecore/media library/Base Themes/Editing Theme)
  • check if for some reason (unknown or me) renderings in your production environment are not somehow placed under one item
  • you showed Add here dialogue but I don't see the toolbox - all the renderings there are also under one section?

Few more things to mention. Toolbox sections depend on the parent item where the rendering is located:

Items under Available Renderings are just to group allowed renderings. To make managing of allowed renderings easier bu putting them into logical groups. E.g.: All Context renderings which are allowed are here:

  • There is no issue with the toolbox. all renderings are displaying properly but the problem is when click on "Add here" button, it showing all components without any category. – arjunan May 25 '18 at 9:36
  • There may be issue in SXA installation. May be site not created property. Sometimes power shell will not create all required items. You can try creating another site. – Amit Kumar May 25 '18 at 12:45
