I have created a simple custom page layout in SharePoint Designer, added a couple of web part zones, and a custom web part on each zone.
These web parts have a custom provider-consumer set of interfaces. I configured the connection between the web parts in SharePoint Designer (using Add Connection wizard), and saved the page layout.
After that, I checked in the layout and approved it in SP's web interface.
Finally, I created a Publishing Page based on my layout, but the connection between the web parts was not set. I can set the connection manually and it works fine, but I would like the connection to be automatically set on each page I create based
on the layout.
Is this the expected behavior? If so, is there a way to configure the connection automatically either programmatically or declaratively?
Is there a step I'm missing?
