Notes

Required Classes

The following classes must be present in all projects that rely on GraffitiSuite products:

  • GraffitiControlWrapper
  • GraffitiUpdateInterface

Version Mixing

You should never version mix GraffitiSuite components. Between versions, changes in the scripts directory are common and attempting mix different versions of components – even if unrelated – can cause a number of issues including Javascript exceptions. To update one, you should update all.

Issues in Deployment not seen in Debug

This is a common issue when not updating the scripts directory on your server, especially when using the CDN functionality. Your first step when you see a problem in a deployed app that you did not experience in debug should be to verify that your scripts directory on the server is fully up-to-date.

The next most common cause is browser caching. You should always clear your browser cache, either for your deployed site or all sites, after making changes to the scripts folder. The script files are cached by the browser and you may experience issues with your project. Steps to do so may be found in this article by PCMag.
