Strange stubborn Partial [SOLVED]

(Rob D) #1

Is there an easy way to find a specific partial within pages of a project? I have a stray partial (named Partial 57) which most likely was created accidentally. What is strange about this partial, it shows under Stacks but not under Partials.

I can’t remove it permanently from Library, so it must be embedded somewhere within the project. But I got more than hundred pages, so going one-by-one would be a pain you-know-where…

P.S. For some reason, my screenshot looks truncated at the bottom, so this particular partial is not visible. Hover over the bottom of the screenshot and click on “expand” symbol.

I’m afraid there is no way currently to search for specific types of stacks or partials your Stacks pages.

However this is something we’ll try to improve in future releases.

The only thing I’d recommend is having a look inside the partial. If it’s used in very few places, then I would guess its contents are quite unique and perhaps that can help you locate it.

Thanks, @isaiah, I have done that already, but unfortunately, inside that partial is an element I use on almost every page of my project, so it’s still difficult to decide which particular page might have it.

BTW, does this statement hint anything to you:

What is strange about this partial, it shows under Stacks but not under Partials.

Perhaps this means that my “Partial 57” is a part of a bigger partial?

It would be great if you’d manage to make partials (and stacks) searchable within a project.

Why don’t you put a big bright image inside the Partial and then preview the page(s), you should be able to find it that way.

YES. That’s very weird. Can you send me the file? I’d like to see that.

That’s’ a really good idea Paul. Can’t believe I didn’t think of it.

You can also put unique text in the partial and then export (publish) to disk (local) then search your site folder (using standard OSX search) for the text. It will appear in the html/php page that contains the partial.

Paul, Greg, Isaiah —

Those are very good ideas. As it goes, simplest ideas are usually best ones. And hardest to find. And most obvious… :kissing_closed_eyes:
