  • Sitecore and SQL Server on Linux

    So, I had a couple of hours today to play around with something and I had recently seen the news about public availability of the SQL Server on Linux preview... Short version - it seems to work with Sitecore. Of course I would never use this in a real environment (probably not even a development environment...

  • Sitecore URLs With Dashes Instead of Spaces

    One of the SEO best practices everyone should trying to implement on their sites relates to URLs with spaces. I’m sure you’ve seen a URL with an encoded space before - %20. Yuck. Not only does it look bad to your site’s visitors, but search engines don’t particularly like it either. From what I’ve read...

  • Placeholder Settings Rules

    We just had a requirement come up on my current project where they wanted to restrict the number of sublayouts of a certain type on a specific page. They are using the unified page editor, so the thought was that when the "Select a Rendering" dialog popped up, a certain sublayout would only...

  • SOLR on Sitecore 7 Gotchya

    I got bit by a small gotchya while setting up a fresh Sitecore 7 install to use SOLR today. In SOLR, I left the core named the default "collection1" instead of renaming it to "itembuckets" as is recommended in the documentation. Well, if you want your core named something other than...

  • Conditional Pages – Part 2

    Over the weekend, I posted part 1 of a discussion of this thing I created that I’m calling “conditional pages”.  I promised to elaborate on the technical details, so here I am with some code samples and instructions that hopefully will allow others to reproduce what I have done. Before I begin,...

  • Conditional Pages – Part 1

    A few days ago, I posed a question here (and on Twitter and on the SDN forum and some other places) regarding accessing visitor profile data from the HttpRequestBegin pipeline.  I promised to post about why I needed to do that once I had everything working, so here’s the story.  Sorry – it...

  • Visitor Profiles in HttpRequestBegin Pipeline?

    Sorry that this isn't a tutorial-style post today, but I promise if I get all of this working that I will post the full story in a few days. For now, I'm having a Sitecore problem... I have an HttpRequestBegin pipeline processor that runs right after the stock ItemResolver. I need for it to read...

  • Opening the Field Editor From the Page Editor Ribbon (aka the Metadata Button Module)

    A while back, I wrote about opening Sitecore’s media library browser from a button in the Content Editor ribbon. Recently, I decided it would be really useful to do something similar with the Field Editor dialog – only this time, from the Page Editor’s ribbon. If you’re not familiar with the dialog in...

  • Folder Tab in Sitecore Content Editor

    Something I have wanted to know how to do for years, but hadn’t bothered to put any thought into…  You know that “Folder” tab that appears in the content editor when you create a new folder (using the /Templates/Common/Folder template)?  Here’s a screenshot: I have never known how to get this...

  • Building the Thumbnail Button Module

    When I set out to create an easier way to set thumbnails in Sitecore, I had a picture in my mind of how I wanted it to work, but I didn’t really know where to start!  I hadn’t built a custom ribbon button before.  I hadn’t created a modal dialog before nor did I know how to display an existing...
