Sitefinity includes a helpful inline editing feature, which allows an authorized user to quickly update content on the public website instead of the administration backend.

By default, Sitefinity disallows special characters in the SEO title for a page. This video demonstrates how to override this setting, allowing you to specify different restrictions (or remove them entirely). http://blip.tv/play/AYL0%2BDUC.html?p=1 Regular Expressions You may have noticed that for the first regex property, I replaced it with [^\S\s]. The reason for this is that […]

So finally, after many years of searching (this is a problem I’ve been trying to solve long before WP7), I finally discovered Wunderlist. Rarely does one find a solution so complete, so closely matched to their needs that when it happens, you just have to sit back and enjoy it.
When migrating to the latest Sitefinity from the old version 3.7, by default the original .aspx page extension remains intact. It is stored in the Extension property of the PageNode. You can remove (or change) this extension with this simple code snippet: RemoveSitefinityPageExtensions.cs on Gist
One of my biggest annoyances about SQL Server is the inability to load a database from a later version into a previous one. Database files and backups don’t have any indicators of their version (unless you are OCD enough to enforce naming conventions) so whenever I get a backup file from a client (or from […]
The Sitefinity classification widgets allow you display a list of taxonomy items (Categories, Tags, etc.)from your various content items. By default this control collects and renders all used taxonomy items, regardless of type.
When binding in ASP.NET with the XmlDataSource, you can easily use Eval(“”) to bind to the node properties. However, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to bind the actual node inner value.
