    Sitecore Context Languages and Date Displays

    Posted 10/14/2016 by Ed Kapuscinski

    I'm generally pretty happy with the way that Sitecore handles multi-lingual sites, especially in Sitecore 8 where language fallback is an out of the box feature. There's one thing, though, that it doesn't do natively: set the cultureinfo for dates when a visitor is browsing a site in a certain language.

  • Various ways to recover deleted item from Sitecore Recycle Bin and Setting

    When we delete an item in Sitecore it is not deleted permanently. Instead it is moved to the recycle bin just like on a Windows PC recycle bin. Items sit in the Recycle bin until someone permanently deletes everything in it, meaning you can recover them if they were accidentally deleted.

    Posted 09/09/2016 by Subramanian Ramanathan

    Whenever we start any new project we tend to write some Utilities class with frequently used methods like GetItem, EditItem, etc. and also, adding & retrieving query strings using UriBuilder/HttpUtility.ParseQueryString API. As we know, Sitecore uses query strings like sc_mode, sc_lang etc. This got me a thinking.. Sitecore should have come up with its own methods for adding & retrieving query strings. Luckily we have such methods in Sitecore.Web.WebUtil class, syntax below, Sitecore.Web...

    After installing a new test instance of Sitecore 8.1 I wanted try out some features.   I decided to add some test item to fill out the content tree a bit.    I found some tools for adding items, but it would be a good exercise to write my own module.   So, here is that effort.

  • Publish Viewer

    Posted 07/06/2016 by Sanjeev Gupta

    I recently came across a situation in a production environment that I have been supporting that required some explanation for the client.  This environment is a large implementation, with a multi-lingual site, multiple servers, and content authors spread around multiple offices around the world. Users were often finding that they would make some small changes, but their small changes would take seemingly forever to go live. It was tough for them to understand what was going on though.
