My first impression on Designer’s behaviour is not really positive, I believe my 8.5.2 installation is more stable than the 8.5.3 one.
Nevertheless, it rises some Xpages related questions for example the next one:
I am trying to develop more via components, that is custom controls that will be steered via property definitions. I have created a custom control to display a widget component (oneUi). The widget contains a editable area so for each instance of the widget I can add custom content.
What I’ve tried is to create a custom control for a tagcloud, where the tagcloud (control from the ext. library) is steered via the property definition.
This works well AS LONG as the tagcloud does not reside in the editable area of the widget cc. When I place the tagcloud in the widget cc and preview locally the Xpage that contains the tagcloud cc Designer crashes.
I do not understand the cause of it. Maybe you can explain what I am doing wrong???
Image: the tagcloud custom control. It contains the widget custom control and the tagcloud control.
Image: here is how it looks in Designer. The tag control not residing within the widget custom control.
Image: How I want it to be: the tagcloud control residing within the widget custom control.

Mon, Dec 9th 2013 2:22p Patrick Kwinten I received some comments on the eCard app on OpenNTF:
A overlooked the middle fingers suggestion a Santa makes on the default image (dumb dumb).
I never tested in IE (out of scope).

eCard XPages app – Time for your seasonal greetings !
Wed, Dec 4th 2013 3:06a Patrick Kwinten The last days I have spent some hours in the evenings to learn me Bootstrap in combination with XPages as bit more. The result is a basic eCard application on XPages which utilizes Bootstrap 2 for UI.
Since the Advent Calendar has started I guess you are allowed to start sending out your seasonal greetings
You can find the app as a project on OpenNTF (link to project). I noticed a card is not working properly in IE yet (what did I expect?). I will see if I can fix this on the short term. O [read] Keywords: xpages application
The View free online?
Tue, Dec 3rd 2013 3:02a Patrick Kwinten During the cleanup of my paper library with the View magazines I noticed that a lot of articles, including the PFD’s, of The View are indexed by Google and available online. I am not sure if this is a mistake or a seasonal gift from Wellesley Information Services but if you search online most of the older articles appear in the search results.
Older? “What is their use?” you may wonder. Most techniques described are obsolete or a sin, but others are so general (performance, p [read] Keywords: notes
1900 posts of XPages
Mon, Nov 11th 2013 1:42p Patrick Kwinten I noticed I have reached the 1900 limit of posts in my XPages Knowledge DB. It happens to be that the 1900th post was an ‘oldie‘.
I have no doubt I will reach the 2000 limit by the end of this year so thank you all for sharing and posting!

Parsing RSS feeds on a Domino site
Sun, Nov 3rd 2013 11:22p Patrick Kwinten I have a request to display multiple RSS feeds (public and internal) on a Domino site. Since it includes internal RSS feeds I assume I cannot use the Google feed API.
Anyone has suggestions/ideas how to solve this? [read] Keywords: domino
Capturing geodata in XPages
Fri, Nov 1st 2013 4:02a Patrick Kwinten In XPages it is not default possible to capture geodata information with any control so you are depending on services (not a problem if they provide the correct data).
Here is an example how to capture a visitor’s geodata via http://ipinfo.io/ and store the information in a Notes document in the following order:

Project on OpenNTF – site stats
Wed, Oct 23rd 2013 7:22a Patrick Kwinten I have created a new project on OpenNTF called site stats: http://www.openntf.org/internal/home.nsf/project.xsp?action=openDocument&name=Site%20Stats.
It contains the code from a previous post on visualizing visit statistics for your xpages along with some additions.
The project does not has the intention to be a fully site statistic tool, but makes it possible to monitor individual xpages in a single application.
I wonder what tools there are nowadays in the market to collect site statisti [read] Keywords: domino
