Sitecore sites language versions overview

I just created a simple file using plain html, css and javascript to be able to gather all our language versions of our Sitecore web sites on one plain overview page.

This is a great way to be able to visualize and compare all the language versions of your sites on one single web page!

Web Sites Overview

Overview of all the language versions of an enterprise web site.

How does it work?

Select which data source you would like to display; published web (web database) or working content (master). Then copy/paste the desired Sitecore item id to the input field to be able to see the language versions on that item page on all the sites.

Sitecore Marketplace.


Just change this parameter to your content management server address:


and this one populating the languages you have in your solution:

var languages = ['en','sv-se','da-dk','nb-no','fi-fi','co-uk','en-au','en-us','it-it','de-de','de-at','de-ch','fr-ch','fr-fr','es-es','nl-nl','fr-be']


  • Responsive web design – adapt to different screen resolutions
  • One time page load. Changing the input variables does not make the page reload. It just updates
  • Selectable published data (web database) or working content (master)
  • Copy/paste the desired Sitecore item id to the input field to be able to see the language versions on that item page on all the sites
  • Simple to configure code; domain name in a variable, languages in a array list
  • On hover, the sites are zooming in
  • Each site is tagged with a badge on top of the iframe to be able to identify
  • Clicking the badge navigates to the site in a new window

Finally you might want an shortcut to the page directly from the Sitecore Start button?

  • Log in to Sitecore
  • Switch to the core database by typing &sc_content=core in the url
  • Create a new Start menu action under the /sitecore/content/Documents and settings/All users/Start menu/Left/ node
  • Display name: Sites Overview
    Icon: Network/32×32/earth_view.png
    Tool tip: Compare page on all sites.
RunExternal(\"http://PATH TO CMS/overview.html\", \"\", \"Network/32x32/earth_view.png\", \"Sites Overview\")
Sites Overview Core Item

Create a link to a web page under the Sitecore Start Button.

Sitecore 8 Launchpad

In Sitecore 8 I created an launch icon from the Launch pad welcome screen.

  • Log in to Sitecore
  • Switch to the core database by typing &sc_content=core in the url
  • Search for item {11FEE71B-C63E-42C8-9319-8883A9A9DD20} which is under this node sitecore\Client\Applications\Launchpad\PageSettings\Buttons\ContentEditing
  • Duplicate the ContentEditor-item and name it Sites Overview
  • Item name: Sites Overview
    Text: Sites Overview
    Icon: Network/32×32/earth_view.png
    Link: ../../../overview.html
    OpenNewTab check it
