Popup with page include works fine in preview, but fails in normal use

edited July 1, 2019 in Questions
sorry to seem stuck on the same topic but I more "page include Uncaught TypeErrors" - in this case the included page loads fine when previewing, but once I start using it with a visual force page deployment, I get uncaught Type Errors. I've pasted screenshots below. I've triple-checked that pages are in the same module, swapped them out & back in again, but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

The most frequent error I get is:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'length' of undefined

Screenshot for Preview page working ok:


Deployed page fails and renders standard salesforce header instead:


Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Greg

    Update: I got this to work using different syntax in the visual force page.

    The incorrect syntax I had previously was:

    <apex:page standardController="CustomObject__c">
    <skuid:page page="PageName"/>

    The correct syntax which worked is:

    <apex:page action="{!redirect}&page=PageName" extensions="skuid.Redirects" standardController="CustomObject__c">

    Hi Greg,

    It is possible to use Page Includes with the <skuid:page> component Visualforce Page syntax, but you have to follow the steps outlined in this tutorial:

    Update: confirmed greg case. If the apex page is with 
    <apex:page standardController="Site__c" recordsetvar="c" extensions="skuid.Redirects" showChat="false"
    showHeader="false" sidebar="false" standardStylesheets="false"

    If I change he Visualforce page to:
    <apex:page standardController="Site__c" recordsetvar="a" extensions="skuid.Redirects" showHeader="true" sidebar="true" readonly="true" docType="html-5.0" action="{!IF(canUseSkuid,'',redirect)}" title="{!$ObjectType.Site__c.labelPlural}"><skuid:page page="SiteWip" /></apex:page>  
    The page include does not work, same error as greg

    Do you have the local version of the Include VF page - as described in the prerequisites section of this tutorial
