I have a Sitecore 8.2 build which is behaving quite opposite way to what sitecore defines versioning to be. When I make a second version for an item and make changes to the final layout, it applies the changes to all versions of that item.

Example. I added a new component on to the final layout of version 2 and the component appears in version 1 also.

Is this versioning enabled by default in 8.2 or should me manually change some config to enable it. Please help.

  • How are you adding the new component?

  • I tried adding on the experience editor and from presentation>details. It's adding the component on all versions in both cases. Commented Jan 8, 2020 at 16:45
  • check __Final Renderings filed in template "/sitecore/templates/System/Templates/Sections/Layout" default it's versioned and not shared. if it's checked in any of this option then it might be the root cause. Commented Jan 8, 2020 at 16:51

By default __Final Renderings is versioned and not shared, so make sure __Final Renderings filed in template "/sitecore/templates/System/Templates/Sections/Layout" as below.
