Dashboard Content item not shown

Topics: General
Oct 19, 2012 at 6:29 AM

During a Demo of my site I created a ContentItem using the editor's ID. The ContentItem comes up in the Projection Details and Summary screen just fine. Also I can Edit the ContentItem. In fact: I do not see any issues when accessing the site as a user!
PS: This ContentItem is based on my own defined ContentType 'Evenement' with some fields in it.

- when in Dashboard I do NOT see that specific ContentItem at all
 PS: All other ContentItems of this Type I can see!
- when I use the Search function - a DIFFERENT ContentItem comes up! (It is of type: Page). A search for any other  'Evenement' ContentItem returns nothing.
My first thought was this could be a issue with the Orchard.sdf DB.

I can find my 'Evenement' ContentItem with a ContentItemRecord_ID 159
the 'Page' ContentItem which comes up in the Search has a ContentItemRecord_ID 138

ContentItemRecord_ID 159 and 138 have 'Data': NULL

ContentItemRecord_ID 159: 'Data' shows my ContentItem
ContentItemRecord_ID 138: has 'Data': NULL

I clearly did NOT change anything in the DB - I'm far away from understanding all these tables!

What else di I need to check? ... besides the DB tables?
I'm pretty sure I must have done something to Orchard to behave this way .. sorry

Thanks for your time and hints, ed

oops only updated it under 'issues'. below solves the Problem:

when adding fields to Content Types it is possible to override the 'technical name' with non-allowed, special characters like "é" . I learned the hard way that this causes problems e.g. to the Placement.info business. Obviously only A-Z, a-z are allowed!
