We are upgrading from 2013 SP1 to SDL Web 8.5. After the upgrade <tcdl:comment> is printing on the website. We have contacted SDL CS for the Hotfix that we need to apply after 8.5 upgrade that is related to cd_tcdl_conf.xml. This is a JSP website.

  1. Does applying this Hotfix CD_8.5.0.1876.zip(mentioned here https://gateway.sdl.com/apex/communityknowledge?articleName=000006143) will also resolve the <tcdl:comment> issue as well?
  2. Also Component Links are not resolving on the website. Internal links are broken.

Could you please help if you have any work around for this issue. PFA screenshot for reference.

  • There is no such thing as "the Hotfix", can you please edit your question and specify what hotfix you are exactly talking about, since they all have a unique number. Feb 27, 2018 at 12:40
  • @Bart - Sorry this is the Hotfix I meant "CD_8.5.0.1876.zip" related to <tcdl> tags. Let me update my question with the Hotfix number. Feb 27, 2018 at 15:06

To answer my own question, Applying the Hotfix "CD_8.5.0.1876", fixed our <tcdl:comment> tags related and component link resolving issues.

I hope this helps for those who are upgrading from 2013 SP1 to Web 8.5. We need to install the CD_8.5.0.1876 Hotfix after the upgrade.
