We have a few customers who are very happy about the Global Element feature, however it seems that with every update to Dynamicweb, the feature gets more and more buggy.
Just a few cases:
I have a current case where a simple global element refrence to a simple paragraph item with a module stops the rest of the paragraphs on the page from rendering.
It is not possible to copy a global element reference to an item, if the page does not allow for creation of standard paragraphs (I know that I can easily go around this, but the list of stuff you can create on a page can just get soooo terrible long).
If an item has a list attached, the global element will not render the content of these paragraphs.
Now for new customers I just tell them that they should stay away from the button cause it never works, and their first reply then ofcause is - then why is it there? And well I don't actually know why it is still there if it is not something that is fully supported? But for customers who have been with DW for many years, it is a bit of an annoyance that whenever their solution gets upgraded, there is something new this feature does not support.
So my feature request is that either it gets a huge update and fix - or it gets completely removed (or gets hitten as far away as Page Item Lists - no one can ever find those ) .
