Sitecore FXM Unable to locate JavaScript beacon on external site

Federated Experience Manager (FXM) is a very useful part of Sitecore, in that it allows end users to add content to and track events on external applications. This is good because it means that clients do not have to convert all of their existing applications into the Sitecore instance to use it’s functionality. In a […]

Display placeholder names in Sitecore Experience Editor

When working in the Sitecore Experience Editor, sometimes it can be a bit annoying to find various placeholders on a page. This can also cause some frustrations for content authors if they aren’t sure what they are looking for. To help with this, I wrote a bit of javascript to display the names of the […]

Publishing Info Stats for Sitecore Items

Publishing information, like who published what and when they published it, isn’t readily available in the Sitecore item information. To find this information we typically have to look into the log.* files. A client requested that publish date and publish author be added to the item information. To accomplish this I found 2 very helpful […]

Multiple email addresses for Workflow notifications

Workflows in Sitecore are an integral part of the content approval process. The email notification action is an important part of that process, in that it lets content approvers know that something is waiting for their attention. Out-of-the-box implementations of the notification actions only support a single email address to receive the messages. This can […]

Kickstart Your Fall with IBM Bluemix

If you can believe it, we are now two-thirds of the way through 2016, which means that pumpkin spice lattes, fall leaves, and the holiday shopping season are on the horizon, with business planning for 2017 not too far off. For many of us, the year only seems a few months old, but when you […]

Getting Access Tokens for both SharePoint and Microsoft Graph

A few days ago, I was working on a project and needed to know if it was possible to access a user’s Exchange Online calendar using the same access token used to access list data in one of their SharePoint Online site collections. The Microsoft documentation is confusing due to the rapid pace of change […]

Sitecore Lucene Info Stream Logs

One of our CD servers started generating a bunch of large Lucene log files that chewed up all of the available disk space. This occurred out of the blue and actually brought the CD server down to a halt. I’m familiar with all of the Sitecore log files that live in the \Data\logs, but these […]

Sitecore Powershell – Add rendering to item

The Sitecore Powershell Module has once again come to the rescue to save me a lot of time in a recent update. We made an update to a left navigation component for mobile views in our responsive site. That being said the component needed to be added to a hundred+ product pages so that the navigation and an […]

Speedy Delivery of Customer Applications with Appian

Customer expectations are rising and creating new service challenges for companies to retain and grow their business. One key to keeping up with new and changing demands is the ability to rapidly deliver new applications and functionality for your customer base. However, “new applications” and “rapidly” can often sound like an oxymoron. Low-code development platforms […]

Sitecore Powershell – Update field values

The Powershell module for Sitecore is quickly becoming one of my new favorite Sitecore tools. I’m still learning the Sitecore Powershell ropes and with the help of various blog posts, including the series started by Jon Upchurch, I’m slowly getting better with it. This week a project required an update to certain links that were contained […]

Final Rendering Deleted After Item Update

I recently had an issue with the Final Renderings being deleted from my pages after I updated a component in the Experience Editor. After a lot of Googling and working with Sitecore Suppport, we found a solution that resolved the issue for us. This specific resolution was not available in any of the posts that […]

Sitecore – Hidden Gems

Recently I was working with Sitecore Support to resolve an issue that I was running into with a page. During the process they asked me to generate a package of the item from the \admin page. I’ve been working with Sitecore for a few years and used things like the \admin\showconfig.aspx page. But I’ve never […]
