Redirect rules in Excel

25 Apr , 2017  

301 Redirect

The editors at the company where I work have been working on a new content tree in Sitecore. First we cloned the Home-node to a NewHome node. This way they could rearrange the structure without changing the pulished one. Still they got updates that were applied to the Home node. When we went live with the new structure we wanted all the old search indexed pages to be redirected to the new page in the new structure. This is how we did it!

Clones and Sitecore PowerShell Extension

19 Feb , 2017  

Sitecore PowerShell

Our organisation is working on a new content structure and took a decision to do this by creating a new content tree by cloning the present one. When it was time to go live with the new content we found that when deleting the clone ID we lost a lot of information on the clone item. The only way to save the information on the fields were to break the inheritance and then delete the dependency to the master item. Doing that manually would have taken a huge amout of time on thousands of items in 16 languages. This was a great opportunity to figure out how to use the Sitecore PowerShell Extension!

Disable Anonymous Access to default.aspx in Sitecore

14 Nov , 2014   Gallery

Default.aspx Authentication

In the Scaling Guide for Sitecore CMS 7.0 it is recommended to restrict access to the Sitecore CMS Admin on the Content Delivery Servers (Web Front Servers). This can be done either by a IP restriction rule or setting Anonymous Access restrictions to some of the Sitecore folders. I had som issues setting restrictions to the default.aspx file. It was easily solved just if you know how to do it the correct way.

SiteMap

I recently build a dynamic generated SiteMap User Control for a multi site Sitecore solution translated in multiple languages. I wanted it to render links to publishable page items in two columns instead of just printing it out as a long list on the page.

Snabbkommandon till Sitecore knappar

27 Apr , 2012  

SitecoreKeyMap

Det finns många bra snabbkommandon i Sitecore så man slipper använda musmarkören och klicka på knappar för att genomföra saker. T.ex. Ctrl + s för att spara ett item eller F2 för att byta namn. Men det finns många knappar som inte är uppmappade t.ex. Display Name. Det är en bra funktion bl.a. för att kunna språkversionera url:en. Här beskriver jag hur man gör för att mappa upp Sitecore-knappar med snabbkommandon på tangentbordet.

10 Mar , 2012  

This is an example of a safe deploy process for a Sitecore environment with one content management server (CM) and two or more web front servers (content delivery CD). The website will be up and running without any interruptions that would affect the customers and you will be able to safely do the code deploy and install the Sitecore packages.
