SXA Handle Media and Layout Not Found

This is a sample repository to demonstrate how to handle media and layout not found in Sitecore Experience Accelerator.


Clone this repository. The rest of the setup assumes you cloned to C:\Projects\Sitecore\SxaNotFound.

Connected Mode

  1. Install an instance of Sitecore 9.0 Update-2.
    • The default install path is C:\inetpub\wwwroot\sxanotfound.localhost.
    • The default URL is sxanotfound.localhost.
  2. Install Sitecore PowerShell Extensions 4.7.2 or above.
  3. Install Sitecore Experience Accelerator 1.7 Update-1.
  4. If you used a clone path, install directory, or URL different than the defaults above, open SxaNotFound.sln and modify the following files in the .config folder:
    • CoreySmith.Project.Common.Dev.config
      • Change sourceFolder to your repository directory.
    • PublishSettings.targets
      • Change publishUrl to the path of your Sitecore instance.
  5. Build the solution in Visual Studio.
    • This will publish all code to your instance thanks to Helix Publishing Pipeline.
    • Note: you may need to reload the solution and build a second time if you get errors about missing assemblies/references when you load Sitecore.
  6. Perform a Unicorn sync at /unicorn.aspx?verb=sync.
  7. Run the Unicorn sync again.
  8. Login to Sitecore and do a full site publish.
  9. Navigate to your site at http://hostname.localhost.
