Guide: Trigger CCF messages from elements in Content Spots

Score’s CCF (Component Communication Framework) allows Content Authors to use rendering parameters to easily control how components communicate with each other. For example, we can set the Button component to fire a CCF message when it is clicked.   But what if the button is inside a Content Spot? Can it still send and receive […]

Component Governance Plan@1x

What is a component governance plan and why do I need it?

We’re very plan driven at Perficient. We like to create them, execute them, measure them, adjust them…and we employ a number of governance plans when executing a new Sitecore project. Very often, large site development projects will include a number of people from various organizations all working together for a common goal – but those […]

Making Atoms Easy with Macro Renderings

In previous posts, we have discussed how Snippets can make your life easier.   Well, there’s another feature we’ve added to SCORE to make using Snippets easier even for the most novice content administrator – macro renderings. The Opportunity Atomic design provides flexibility for user experience and empowers content authors to change not only content but […]

Reusable Components for a CMS, Using the Revealing Module Pattern

Before we get started, I recommend reading about the revealing module pattern and closure, if you’re not already familiar with them. When you are building components for use in a CMS, it’s important to understand that you have less control over the use of these components than you may initially think. Programming these blocks in such […]

Testing UI for Multiple Apps Using UI Automator

A User interface test involves interacting with multiple apps and verifying that the app behaves fine when the flow passes through other apps or through the System UI. An excellent example of this would be the Android messaging app where the user can enter the message which then launches the contact picker so that the users can […]

Crafting an Interactive Timeline with SCORE Components

With SCORE, one of our overriding goals is to minimize the complexity and development effort involved in building Sitecore websites. In most cases, you can use a series of SCORE components to build a complicated UI element, using advanced CSS and JavaScript techniques to completely transform them. One such situation that I recently tackled was […]

Searching Sitecore Page Datasources in Atomic Architecture

Searching Sitecore Page Datasources When first enabling search in your Sitecore solution, you may find that page content is not searchable. This is especially true if you heavily rely on Experience Editor for your site assembly.

SCORE 2.0 Component Assembly 101, Part 2: Form Components

In my first post in this series, we walked through the process of building a simple component. Let’s go a bit further now and build something very useful in Sitecore: a custom form. While a module like Web Forms for Marketers can definitely help you build forms, it can be heavy handed and sometimes doesn’t quite fit the bill. That’s where form components come in. Luckily, BrainJocks SCORE has a few features and patterns that can help you out, and keep your content authors happy at the same time.

Styling Experience Editor for a Better Content Admin Experience

When building a new site using BrainJocks SCORE, are you paying attention to the styling of the Experience Editor view?

Some project team members may consider this a waste of time, especially for projects that are low on budget and/or need to be finished very quickly. But neglecting Experience Editor has meaningful consequences – and your Content Administrators will be the ones who suffer. A frustrating authoring and editing experience can make it impossible to leverage the full power of even the best website.

Our ultimate goal with BrainJocks’ projects is to style Experience Editor to look as close to the front end of the site as possible, optimizing the admin experience. I’ll explain two types of Experience Editor styling that we address when we build websites.
