But if you are a beginner Umbracian, this might sound like greek to you so I thought I would clarify what it means.
This is one of those blogpost where I’ve battled with myself if this is “common knowledge” not worth writing about or if it actually might be helpful to someone. A common misconception is that just because you know something then everyone must know it, which is usually not the case.
Scanning trough the forum of our.umbraco.com I quickly find numerous threads that in the end was solved just from “Bumping the CDF version”. Also the number of times this information have helped a fellow colleague at work indicates that this might not be as obvious to a beginner as we experience Umbracians might think. Hence this blogpost!
"A common misconception is that just because you know something then everyone must know it, which is usually not the case."
Client Dependency Framework:
Most of the time this works so well that you don’t even notice this framework exists. (If you have set compilation debug=true in your web.config this should work pretty smoothly when you're working locally.)
So remember, when in doubt: “Bump the CDF version!” before you spend a bunch of time investigating issues that might not even be issues.
Cheers friends! ❤️
