Few years ago, I had written a blog on how to quickly view the actual physical file location of a presentation rendering/sublayout from within presentation settings of a sitecore item in content editor (View presentation control code path).

This was a problem for me in a recent project, which prompted me to create a Dynamic Placeholders extension. For this post, I will be sharing the process I went through to get Dynamic Placeholder functional in a Sitecore MVC project.

Sitecore provides us an option to add data source location for a particular rendering. For a multisite Sitecore solution, setting up a Datasource location to be a query will be very helpful as it resolves the location based on the site in which they are adding a rendering. In this article, I will discuss my experience and an issue I found with using queries for Datasource location…
