Following up on yesterday’s post, you can patch your logging to increase the level of logging in Sitecore:
Could be useful in diagnosing publishing problems.
Issue: after updating a UAT server I was getting the following error in the “item:deleted” event after trying to publish anything… Continue reading “Publish to ‘web’|#Exception: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException”
Previously I posted about the generalities of implementing a Cache in Sitecore using the CustomCache class. Well, I’ve actually implemented a few caches for Sitecore using this; let’s have a look at my general pattern. Continue reading “An example caching class for Sitecore”
Recently, a few of our customer’s systems that I’ve looked at have had the Publishing Infrastucture site collection feature activated, but purely for the top navigation. That seemed quite a heavyweight approach to me. Continue reading “Publishing Navigation without the Publishing…”
I’ve seen a few questions on Twitter over the last few weeks about how to show properties from Sites or Publishing pages within pages. Actually, this is very easy.

We needed a feature receiver as the customer wanted the home page of their site to have a ‘Search Box’ which would ‘Search this site’, but go to a custom results page in a Search Center. My plan was to use a Search Box Web part, configured to go to a custom results page, and to append the query term:
site: [url to site]
Naturally, you don’t know the URL of the site until the site has been created – so this web part would have to be created programmatically. Continue reading “Programmatically create pages – and Add Web Parts”
