Easy problem, but needs some explanation:
Multi site and load balanced Episerver 7.5 CMS
Working in CMS is limited to special CMS urls, which points to a specific server, pretty standard scenario.
In Epi there are multiple sites, so we want to swap between nodes in edit mode
But of course you will have to login to access another site, that is normal
But, the url that shows up on login page, is the web front major url (like www.mysite.com)
I want the special CMS url to be default when jumping around in edit mode (cms.mysite.com)
How can I setup the "Manage websites" to accomplish this?
I must have the major domain as default site URL, otherwise full sites link will get the cms link....
Are you somehow forcing urls to include the host? I believe the normal behavior is hostless urls which allows you to get the cms-url on the login page - if accessed through that url.
Forcing urls in edit mode? How would I do that?
In CMS 7.5 the multi site setup in edit mode is that each startpage has its own url/domain.
If we only had 1 server, this would work perfectly fine.
But since the dedicated CMS server has special urls per site, edit tree doesn't understand what CMS url the other sites have. It points to the public url.
I think this exposes a loophole in the cms multisite concept...
Could I add this to the wishlist for future updates? To specify per webiste which url that is used by CMS?
I've heard the same from others, we are adding it to the backlog.
