Sitecore: Moving Indexed Content Tree Items
Jamie Stump    

If you’ve ever worked with large amounts of data within Sitecore, chances are you’ve worked with Lucene Indexes (or the newly branded Sitecore.Search namespace and indexes).  If you haven’t worked with these, it’s worth the time (and initial frustration) to learn about them, as they really do improve performance when querying the Sitecore content tree.  There are of course some gotchas relating to Indexes though.  One I’ve already covered is using a MustNot QueryOccurance.  Another is what happens when a content manager moves an item into or out of a folder that is the root for one of your indexes?  This post will cover some of our experiences in how you can get your indexes to properly display accurate data in this situation.

When we built Perficient.com using Sitecore, we set up a number of Sitecore Search indexes for different pieces of our data, like Events and Awards.  One of the issues we ran into was that our indexes weren’t updating properly if a content manager dragged a content item from a folder that was indexed, and moved it into another folder (either indexed, or non-indexed).  We did some experimenting, and came up with the following fairly simple and straight-forward rule set regarding moving content that is in indexed folders.

Moving Content into or out of an index

  1. If you remove items from an indexed folder by dragging them to another folder or by deleting them, you must Smart Publish the indexed folder.  If you publish incrementally, the index will not be rebuilt.  Worse, Smart Publish or Republishing after an incremental publish will NOT correct the problem.  At that point, the only thing that works is to Rebuild the index with the Index Viewer.
  2. The same is not true of dragging items into an indexed folder.  Any kind of publish will update the index

After we discovered those sets of rules, we came to the simple conclusion that when training content managers, we need to point out to them what the indexed folders are and tell them that whenever they update an item within one of those folders, they should perform a Smart Publish.

Option to Migrate Web Content Sites
Thu, Jul 17th 2014 4:15p   Michael Porter
It’s a never-ending request for anyone who does web content management project……. how do you get the content from your old site to your new site.  At first, we did it all by hand. Then we tried a couple vendors who wrote connectors to pull content from source CMS’.  Neither worked all that well for anything over 7,000 artifacts.  Lately we’ve had some luck with Kapow.  Candace Hoeksema has a nice series going on over in our Microsoft Blog about how you make it w [read] Keywords: ibm database development interface microsoft server sql

Now You Can Buy Bus Tickets With An App
Thu, Jul 17th 2014 4:15p   Michael Porter
You can file this under slightly self-serving.  Android Police has a short article on the Bolt Bus app (also available on iOS). It’s highly rated and fairly useful.  Why self-serving you ask?  Well, Perficient developed it for the client.  My twin brother Tim Porter was the manager of that project. Customers can now get their confirmation number and board a bus without having to get their hands on a computer beforehand. The app contains the features found on the website, including sea [read] Keywords: apple linkedin profile widget

I came across the article Google: Reasons Why Nobody Uses Your App in my favorite iPhone app Zite.  The article is about a presentation given by Tomer Sharon, a user researcher at Google, at Google’s I/O Conference. I embedded the video here for you to view. Tomer identifies reasons why nobody uses your app.  I want to extend this to your web site, your portal, or whatever because these six reasons apply beyond an app. I’ll summarize the reasons below, but there were two reas [read] Keywords: apple consulting google iphone

Next week (July 21, 2014), IBM’s yearly Digital Experience Conference will be in full swing.  In the past this conference has been called “Exceptional Web Experience” and “Portal” conference and the new name reflects not only the market changes taking place, but also IBM’s approach to the market.  The market is no longer a “Portal” market or even just a “Web” market.  I think that “Digital” explains that we are focused on [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm mobile websphere websphere portal
