I'm using XPM without the Session Preview feature and it is working well. We need to manually re-publish the content, but otherwise it is responsive and we intend to continue using it without Session Preview. However, we initially configured it for Session Preview and now when setting up the next server, we'd like to set it up without Session Preview.
These are the original services and DB I had installed. Do I still need any of these if I am not using Session Preview?
- SDL Web Session Preview Service
- Register the Preview Capability
- Session-Enabled Content Service (?)
- Session Preview DB
Is it possible to not install any of the Session Preview pieces and still have XPM functionality? Or, is the XPM functionality embedded within Session Preview services and code?
And what configuration is responsible on the front-end to translate the XPM tags into showing the XPM ribbon and the editing features?
Is it only the modules?
<add name="Tridion.ContentDelivery.AmbientData.HttpModule" type="Tridion.ContentDelivery.AmbientData.HttpModule"/> <add name="PreviewContentModule" type="Tridion.ContentDelivery.Preview.Web.PreviewContentModule"/>
