Using PageTypeBuilder when creating EPiServer web sites?
Then you’re probably aware of when removing properties in code, they won’t change in EPiServer. Same thing when changing a property type in PTB, it won’t change in EPiServer.
In larger projects with a lot of inheritance between page types this can be really annoying, going through all page types and remove/change properties. So I created a plugin that displays miss matches between EPiServer and PTB-properties. In the plugin you can also delete unwanted properties, but for now you can’t convert them to another property type.
The plugin will appear in admin-mode:
And looks something like this.
Don’t forget to put the plugin in a secured folder (or remove it in production environment).
This plugin is tested with EPiServer CMS 6 and Page Type Builder 1.3.

Fixed a bug reported at the code section and also added a link to the page type, and also added a link to edit the property if there was a mismatch.
