ECQWP doesn't rollup...correctly.....

Hi Ishaisagi,

I am using ECQWP to display document library docs from all the sites of the same site collections. All thsese doc lib are using content types. It works fine. Great solution!
1) When I want to move this webpart from Dev to Test, what will be the best approach for deploying it to the Test? I have manually added it to the GAC and copied the required style sheets. Now with this, in order for the roll-up of the content across the libraries to apprear in test environment, it requires that we open the" Modify Shared WebPart" , change the settings for the query and then change it back to the original settings for the original settings and query to work.  Any solution on this or am I doing anything wrong here? please guide.

2) I have now added an additional document library under one of the site which is using the same content types as others. I have tested the entire flow through in development and doc gets loaded successfully into this library but doesn't appear inthe ECQWP roll-up. In other words, the library has the default content type as other libraries have & this is the same as the query in the ECQWP. What will be the issue here?

Please guide.

  1. the content query web part does not play well with redeployment. it stores too many things as ID (guids). that is one reason I stopped developing it and focused on developing alternatives.
  2. does a content query web part pick up on the changes, or is this a problem with the ECQWP?
