    Regarding inheritance in adobe day cq

    Heidi albert


      I am fairly new to adobe cq...


      I came across inheritance in the documentation....I did not understand the difference between disable inheritance and cancel inheritance....


      I applied disable inheritance but the child pages still inherited the parent page images which was put in the inherited paragraphs.....



      Could anyone please help me...


      Thanks in advance...

          HI Heidi,


            I beleive your understanding is correct & agree the name is slight confusing This difference is not clear however reading the label descriptions of the checkbox carefully will help to clear configuration.  Documentation at [1].


          Just to demonstrate let us use geometrixx example. In author instance

          *    Go to http://<host>:<port>/content/geometrixx/en/products/triangle.html

          *    On the right side you would see iparasys, Select "" & save.

          *    Go to http://<host>:<port>/content/geometrixx/en/products/triangle/overview.html

          *    You would see it is not inherited & if you are in edit mode you would see "Parent canceled inheritance"

          For second case

          *    Go to http://<host>:<port>/content/geometrixx/en/products/square.html

          *    In Iparasys Select "Disable Inheritance" & save.

          *    IN edit mode you would see "Inheritance disabled" & in preview mode not inherited from the parent page.
