So I came across a problem recently where I have a Jenkins job that build multiple Nuget package and pushes them to Octopus Deploy. I spent some time looking into versioning and decided I wanted my packages to be versioned using the Microsoft versioning mechanism used by MSBuild with wildcard characters in AssemblyInfo.cs.
I always forgot these parameters so writing a quick blog post for easy reference. With WFFM there are parameters you can set on the Send Email Message Save Action for sending an email through an SMTP server with a username and password. The full params are:
I’ve had a pretty frustrating few hours today where TeamCity appeared to be very slow pulling from Git. I removed the VCS root and added it again, changed from HTTPS to SSH after which point it couldn’t even seem to pull anything from BitBucket.
After a bit of searching around I finally found my answer on stack overflow here – http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18766875/teamcity-getting-stuck-at-updating-sources-on-one-git-repo
By default TeamCity will only pull files <= 128mb. To change this you need to create an internal property that increases the size.
Create a new file in <Team City Data Directory>/config/ folder (c:\ProgramData\JetBrains\TeamCity\config by default) called internal.properties. Inside this file put the following:
In my last post I wrote about setting up your Sitecore solution. I’m now going to extend that to creating your first Sitecore MVC website. This post will build upon the solution created in my other post using TDS and code generation. I’ll keep this post just to the basics of getting the site up an running and then will write further posts to cover the different areas of Sitecore MVC.
In this post I’m going to set up a new Sitecore solution with TDS. I’ll then enable code generation to create glass mapper compatible objects.
Sitecore uses log4net for logging. If you want to write to the log in your own code just use the following.
Sitecore.Diagnostics.Log.Error("Error message", exception);
In Sitecore there are two types of binding, static and dynamic. Static is when you use the Sublayout web control directly in your layout and specific the sublayout you want to use. Dynamic binding is when you use a Placeholder web control and set the sublayout that will appear in that placeholder in Sitecore via the placeholder key. When using dynamic binding you can give your sublayout a Parameters Template and set parameters in Sitecore, but how do you set parameters on a sublayout using static binding?
I’ve been playing around some more with Twitter Bootstrap and MVC and wanted to create a top level menu where the active class was added automatically to the item corresponding to the current page. Initially I had an action link inside the list item tag, but as the active class needs to be added to the list item so I decided to create an extension method to generate the entire item for me.
