Migrate renderings from SC7 to SC8

18 Mar , 2018  

Sitecore PowerShell

To be able for each language versions of an item to have their own renderings in our Sitecore instance version 7.2, the __Renderings field shared option was set to false. This is not Sitecore Best Practice, but this is how it was solved. When migrating the content to Sitecore 8.2 I wrote a Power Shell script to migrate the rendering settings to the new __Final Rendering field.

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!
