tip for "finding the loading item"
Trying to get a handle on all these delightful icons that appear in the Smart Content area ... gee, so many icons and only a handful "work" to load the item. Why is because most of them may be for 'materials' and the real item must be loaded first. Thing is they all appear together in the same basket so what to do? Well, I browsed to the real folders and added a letter to some of the icons so "next time" frustration levels can be lower.
Some of the icons [general speaking for any product] apparently may not work if there are .duf files present in the same folder as the .dsf files. One set being for 4.5 and the other for 4.0. Being on 4.0 I found deleting the .duf files - convincing D/S4.0 to refresh the pages - then it can load those new items. Of course I'm also stuck with a bunch of useless icons with "!"s which another day I'll figure out how to get rid of without bothering the CMS which is apparently rather touchy.
Thought I'd post of this labeling idea though in case it helps anybody else too. And maybe convinces a few content creators to be a little more inventive with their icons ;-) Thank you.
n.b. that the example I used was simply because it happened to be the one I was working on last night. It's a great product.
