    Hi Team.

    We have observed a weird issue with Sitefinity page in edit mode.

    When user edits an existing page and tries to choose different template from the existing one using template dropdown on the top of the page, it appears that all the existing content from generic control modules wipes out and blank template renders on the page. When user again switches back to existing template the content
    re-appears. So in order to persist the content while switching between different templates what is required to be done? Or is it a default behavior of sitefinity page in edit mode? Please see an attached image for visual illustration.


    Thanks and Regards,
    Raghu

    Hello Raghu,

    If the IDs of your ConentPlaceHolder controls are different in both the templates the widgets will not appear.

    Best wishes,
