A critical portion of understanding Site Clusters is wrapping your head around Shared and Final layout, and understanding their impact on your assembly.
Recently, a client’s live Sitecore site was brought down completely by a failure in the SOLR search provider service. Immediately we tracked down the root cause of the issue and set to work on resolving it. I’ll start with the root cause and continue on with the steps that were taken to prevent Sitecore from […]
In my introduction to Sitecore’s SPEAK framework, I mentioned that SPEAK applications should always be built from a branch template provided by Sitecore. While it is possible to write a SPEAK page from scratch, there are many moving pieces to consider. Because all SPEAK applications require certain components to function (JS libraries, CSS, a Sitecore layout, etc.), this article […]
This is an internal training webinar that ran on the week of 6/13/2016. It included members of our Sitecore team both in Atlanta and elsewhere, and included people who had used the framework extensively as well as total newcomers. Sitecore Ignition is an Open Source Development Accelerator and set of best practices for rapidly developing […]

It has two primary components: the Sitecore Information Architecture piece and the .NET […]
I was tasked with setting up the security settings which was needed for the content editors providing the content of the Sitecore site we are working on. While Sitecore provides an author role, it does not provide an editor role which allows a content editor to edit existing items and well as add new items […]
After we enabled HTTPS on one of our clients’ sites in their pre-prod environment, Sitecore started to add :443 to all URLs, which was undesirable from an SEO perspective. I found this question on Stack Overflow about the issue, and I tried the suggestions of setting scheme=”https” and port=”443″ in the site definition, hoping that Sitecore’s built-in LinkProvider would recognize :443 to be redundant in the URLs, […]
I have been working in a Sitecore environment where in code, I am checking the branch template ID of an item when searching for those items using Coveo. Once I completed my unit testing of this functionality in my local development environment, to move things along, I created a package of these items to install […]
In this blog I want to discuss what to look out for if you are re-installing the Coveo package unto Sitecore 8. In developing within a Sitecore 8 site recently I had installed the Coveo version 1266 package on the site but needed to replace it with the Coveo version 1226. Each time I tried […]
