FindPagesWithCriteria and Globalization

Reported by: oyvind@… Owned by: andyturl@…
Priority: critical Component: EasySearch
Keywords: Cc:


When indexing EPiServer pages i see that some pages are indexed with page version as well as the id (f.ex 211_2629). When doing FindPagesWithCriteria and returning pagedata objects with DataFactoryHelper.GetPage and passing the version and language selector the language selector is not used since the page version is for a specific language version.

Since the selector is not used you will get a mix of languages in the pagedatacollection.

So, why do the index store the id with the version in it ?

A workaround would be to change the parameter to the GetPage and remove the version so that the language selector is used.

See the attachment.

GetPage returns wrong language version.

Hi Oyvind,

The reason that the version ID is sometimes indexed along with the ID of the page is that in order to support different page providers, when indexing a page we index the PageReference from PageLink.ToString().

When performing an index of the whole site this returns the Page ID on its own and not a specific version, however when a single page is edited and then reindexed, PageLink.ToString() returns "Page ID_Work ID".

From reading this http://world.episerver.com/Templates/Forum/Pages/Thread.aspx?id=35269&epslanguage=en it looks like this is actually a bug in EPi so we might need a work around for using GetPage().

Yes, seems like EPiServer prioritize the version id of the page reference instead of the language selector.

I added this workaround locally because i'm going live with CMS5.

PageReference rawPageId;

if (PageReference.TryParse(pageId, out rawPageId))
  if (rawPageId.IsAnyVersion() == false)
    rawPageId = new PageReference(rawPageId.ID);

  PageData languagePage = DataFactoryHelper.GetPage(rawPageId, selector);

  if (languagePage != null)

Looks like this does the job as a workarond.

The code looks good, unfortunately I don't think I can check it in for use due to it relying on the PageReference.ID which may not always succeed when using different page providers.

I will add this code within the method however but leave it commented out for others using CMS 5 who know they won't be using a different page provider to make use it if that's okay with you.

Since FindPagesWithCriteria is just a convenience method for FindLuceneDocuementsWithCriteria then it could also be used externally when building the Pages collection.
