In Sitecore 10.1, when I set the Parameters Template in my rendering, the Edit component properties dialog shows the expected parameters fields but all other fields, including Data Source, Placeholder, Caching etc do not show...

enter image description here

As soon as I set the Parameters Template value to None, they return.

What is causing this? What needs to be done so that all fields show?

I suspect this is because of the base template that you are using for your parameters.

Please can you verify that the parameters template that you are assigning inherits the Standard Rendering Parameters. If not, try switching to that base template and see if it fixes the issue.

You can find the Standard Rendering Parameters template here:

/sitecore/templates/System/Layout/Rendering Parameters/Standard Rendering Parameters

  • Literal 🤦‍♂️. This was exactly the cause. My rendering parameters extended Standard template and not Standard Rendering Parameters. When I switched the Base template to Standard Rendering Parameters, it worked exactly as expected. Thank you. Commented Nov 18, 2022 at 13:22
