Using Sitecore 9.2 and SXA 1.9, I've created a Partial design which appears OK in the Experience Editor. I've then added the Partial design to a Page design but when I view that Page design in the Experience Editor, nothing is displayed. Why could that be?

I've seen this post but our site settings are correct: Partial Designs are not visible on Page Design

  • Can you verify that both the Partial Design and the Page Design have the same language and site in the url (sc_lang=<LANGUAGE>&sc_site=<SITE>) when editing in the Experience Editor? Commented Aug 27, 2019 at 7:55
  • All renderings form Partial Designs should be visible on the Page Design. But in general, you should not edit Page Design itself, it is only for grouping partials. Commented Aug 27, 2019 at 7:58
  • You can check the presentation details for the page design in Experience Editor. Select the layout for which the partial design contains the renderings. I guess you are checking in the layout in which there is no rendering for partial design. ![enter image description here](i.sstatic.net/hnF1h.png) Commented Aug 27, 2019 at 12:28
  • @MathijsVlasveld yes, sc_lang and sc_site are the same across both

  • @DawidRutkowski the partial design isnt being displayed at all in the page design in the Experience Editor, and then in pages based off that page design ..

The issue was that we had TWO! extra site definitions in the config files that were causing this problem. As the site is configured in /sitecore/content/Epworth/EpworthWeb/Settings/Site Grouping, there is no need for site definitions in the config.

Removing them fixed this issue.
