Azure Web Site: How to remove an empty template created with Design tool

Topics: Customizing Orchard, General, Installing Orchard
Nov 21, 2012 at 3:10 PM


Exploring Shapes and templates with Design Tool, having selected an edited field, I clicked on the create button in front of one of the alternates for current shape.

This generated an EditorTemplate.cshtml empty file in the Themes/TheThemeMachine/views folder.....and all the edited fields disappeared from the page :(

As it is an Azure Web site, I have not found a way to delete it, getting an access denied with ftp.

How to recover from this ?

Ask Azure support why ftp doesn't let you in.

Try to stop the Website before removing the file. Maybe there is a process holding it.

I do it but the lock was still there.
I changed the theme->still.....but next day it was released.
Azure web site are not as easy to manage as web sites installed on an Azure VM.
I have created several to explore the Orchard module gallery, and I realized that after loading and enabling more than roughly 6 module the site starts lagging,
I was thinking the culprit was a faulty module, having tried oForm and detected a bug, but actually I have no error tracing and it is lagging as soon as I reach this kind of Orchard Sound Barrier ?
