Gettin' Freaky with Transformations!

I wouldn't recommend writing large amounts of code within transformations; usually, I try to keep them as simple as possible so that front-end developers find them easy to work with.  However, when you need to, this tip may be helpful.

It's important to remember Asp.net's Page Lifecycle when implementing code within a transformation.  If you pick an event that's too early within the life cycle, you'll probably end up getting a null exception.  When scripting within a transformation, you need to be familiar with which tags to use.

Caching in with Kentico

Caching is an important part of website performance. Kentico has caching built right into its web parts, controls, and site settings making it easy to take advantage of its caching capabilities. You can read in depth about Kentico caching in a post by Martin Hejtmanek (http://devnet.kentico.com/Blogs/Martin-Hejtmanek/April-2009/Deep-Dive---Kentico-CMS-Caching.aspx). In this post I’m going to show you how to utilize Kentico’s caching API in your code. We will then abstract that code into a utility class that will simplify our methods and reduce redundancy.

Many-to-Many relationships in the Kentico CMS Content Tree

For a few of my Kentico implementations, I've encountered the need for a Many-to-Many relationship for documents that exist in the content tree. Documents within the content tree are stored in a hierarchy and have a parent-child relationship.  There are a few different ways to achieve a many-to-many relationship while storing documents in the tree, but this tip will just describe a quick work-around using a bit of sql and Kentico's query repeater.  I'll first discuss an example of where the issue emerges and then the work-around.

Extending the User Profile

In some cases you may have a need to add extended data to the user’s profile. The extended profile data is stored in the CMS_UserSettings table. To add a field to this table, navigate to CMS Site Manager > Development > System tables and click edit on the CMS_UserSettings table.

Setting icons for new document types in Kentico

The first thing you should do after creating a new document type in Kentico is give that document type a unique icon. Icons help content editors visually distinguish between different document types when browsing the tree and creating new documents.

Find Closest Ancestor Method

The find closest ancestor method is a handy method that recursively traverses up the tree from a given node until it finds a document with the class type you have specified. For example you might have news items that live under various page menu items in order to categorize them (e.g. Tech News, Global News, etc.) and you want to display the section name (page menu item's title) above the news title on the news item. You can use the find closest ancestor method to get the page menu item that is above the current news item and display the page menu item's title.
