SmartTarget and Profiling and Personalization are not the same although at a very very basic level it may appear you can force them to do the same thing. Profiling and personalization will allow you do display specific Component Presentations (attached to the page) to be displayed on the page if the profile logic is met. SmartTarget integrates with the ...

Actually, it seems that this was related to issues with Chrome 36, for which there exists a hot fix: Chrome 36 with Tridion 2011 or 2013 Apparently I already had the hot fix but still needed to restart Chrome. After restarting Chrome, the error is gone.

I had this a while ago and seem to remember it being to do with .ASCX files not being allowed to be uploaded in to IIS via WebDav because of Request Filtering. All of the request filtering features can impact content that is uploaded or download through WebDAV I think that this can be changed in the applicationHost.config file <requestFiltering> ...

Obviously it will depend on what technology you are using for the client. For example in a .NET programme, you could host both the 2011 client and the 8.5 version, but then you'd have to create separate appdomains which might be more work than you'd like. Your best chance is to use the 2011 client assembly to communicate with both. That will mean that you ...

In this situation, I generally recommend (do read the disclaimer ;) ) the following as a release / content refresh cycle: Ensure that the BluePrints really are the same in terms of inheritance and Publication Titles; Content Port system items from Dev to Stage from the top of the BluePrint down in separate Content Porter packages in the following ...

I had this error a while back too. I never found out what exactly caused it, but it seems some kind of update/install took place on the machine that required a reboot. However the machine had not been restarted. This is a vague explanation I got by googling the error. The good part is that after reboot, the error went away. I remember on one server I had to ...

You can do a little magic to customize the default ItemSelectDialog view after its loaded (assumption based on your comments with John Winter). First you'll want to create an extension group in your configuration. It should look something like: <resources catch="true"> <cfg:filters /> <cfg:extensiongroups> <cfg:extensiongroup ...

According to my mailbox, I've seen this error before :) It was resolved by re-registering the CAPICOM.DLL file that Tridion requires to encrypt/decrypt this configuration file. It looks like something must have changed recently on your server causing this dll to not be registered anymore. Credit goes to Brandon Truong from SDL Customer Support: On ...

As stated in the comments above, next to defining the resources files in the configuration, you should also move the dll of your GUI extension project to the Tridion\web\WebUI\WebRoot\bin folder. I put this answer in here for clarity, so this question can have an "accepted" answer.

Those characters are also used for the "Shellshock bug" (a Bash vulnerability discovered recently) that is currently all the rage. It's possible that a security update outside of Tridion (firewall, Windows Update, anti-virus, etc.) is preventing the request from going through. Check all your logs!

It's the same event as publishing 'now'. The difference is simply that the PublishInstruction will have the StartAt property set to the date/time selected for rendering, and the DeployAt property set to the date/time selected for placing the content online.

Content Delivery In your cd_deployer_conf.xml, modify the "Cleanup" attribute of the Queue Location element to be "false": <Queue> <Location Path="c:\tridion\staging\incoming" WindowSize="20" Workers="10" Cleanup="false" Interval="2s"/> </Queue> Restart your deployer for these changes to take effect.

You need to extend associated View group. In case of ComponentView it is Tridion.Web.UI.Editors.CME.Views.Component See how to make groupextensions from Eric answer in similar post: Component Fields available in GUI Extension with fieldBuilder

Take a look at the CoreService API. You need this RenderedItemData PreviewItem( RepositoryLocalObjectData itemData, TemplateData templateData, PublishInstructionData publishInstruction, string publicationTargetId ) Your page is the itemData, you will need a PT, and a PublishInstructionData For 2011 you might want to look at this: ...

Turns out the Database server had gone down the night before due to a hardware failure. After it had been restored, the Tridion Content Manager Service Host service had not been restarted. After restarting all the Tridion services, all operation resumed to normal.

So you set the title after making sure your Component is checked out, but you tried to sync back the changes of the content before ensuring it is checked out: ... // sync content back to Component newComp.Content = content.ToXml(); ... // sync metadata back to Component newComp.Metadata = embeddedFields.ToXml(); ... if (!newComp.IsCheckedOut) { newComp....

Bart already pointed out the proper order to do this check-out/modify/check-in cycle after the copy operation is performed. Do note that this approach leads to a version 2 on the copy: version 1 is the unmodified copy and your post-processing creates a version 2. This may be exactly what you want, but note that it is also possible to modify the copy without ...

There's no other way out-of-the-box, but you could create your own solution (e.g. a Custom Page) which exposes this functionality to the right people. Behind the scenes it then needs to impersonate an administrator user to do the actions.

Actually it was a slightly silly one :( The licence file for the cloned server was missing a licence for Audience Manager. Steps to investigate: Tried starting all Tridion Outbound E-mail services and got an issue while starting "Tridion Outbound E-mail Synchronization" Went to Event Viewer and had a look in the Tridion error event log Saw the error ...

I would try running the publisher in Debug mode and see if that solves your issue. You can do this by stopping the publishing service and then opening a command prompt on the server and typing "%TRIDION_HOME%\bin\TcmPublisher" /debug > C:\logs\publisher.log Try your operation again and then have a look at the C:\logs\publisher.log file to see what is ...

The number of worker threads is indeed the number of deployment packages the deployer will process in parallel. While your hardware might be able to support more, adding more will not necessarily improve performance unless you are already having situations where you have more than 10 packages (=publishing transactions) to be deployed at the exact same time. ...

I've done something similar to this in the past. Here is the code i used in my gui extension to override the default multimedia pop up button: Extensions.ContentBloom.ComponentLinkSelect.prototype.preInit = function () { var context = this; var onDisplayStart = function () { $evt.removeEventHandler($display, "start", onDisplayStart); $log....

This issue is addressed with hotfix CME_2013.1.0.87280 available here: https://www.sdltridionworld.com/downloads/hotfixes/SDL_Tridion_2013_SP1/index.aspx (login required, or contact Production Support). A word of caution: we were about to build a Custom Resolver to address this having custom logic to pull the needed linked components in. However, this ...

This is how I would go about resolving this: Write a CoreService app that looks through every component searching for fields containing a TcmUri; Convert that TcmUri to a WebDavUrl by loading the target object and getting it's WebDavUrl (some smart caching suggested here) Save/Update the components (probably before step #1) make sure my code still works ...

A google search for "tridion json" gives me quite a few decent results, particularly this one. Serializing to JSON is not that hard - except when dealing with Rich Text fields and when deciding what to do about Tridion content delivery features (like dynamic linking) that you may have to (re)implement on the delivery side. I've had some troubles in the ...

There is no known bandwidth limitation on the Http Deployer itself that I know of. That said, if the network latency for other protocols is a lot lower compared to HTTP traffic, I would look in the following places first: Http Proxy servers and / or firewalls standing in between the source and the destination. It may very well be that bandwidth throttling ...

There is no such method in the Core Service API. If there was, I suspect that Tridion would probably still be doing similar operations in the database to determine whether an item is used or not, so it would still take time. Your code is currently filtering on pages only. For a true "Where used" status you probably need to remove the item types from your ...

I am not sure why there is a need to create a custom page using the Core Service and in fact of a tool for this purpose (getting a list of all modified items between two dates) when SDL Tridion CME provides this out of the box - Probably you have not shared all the requirement as I am not sure why you want to generate XML for each one of these and save it in ...

I recall some time ago that a Microsoft update stopped COM+ services - this may be the one here ... http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909444 - perhaps something has slipped through here (if this is the case then maybe more user can comment on here too). If you have the time I would sift through the logs and see if there was any sort of update (Microsoft http:/...

To prevent your other components being indexed you need to add a NoIndex metadata field to your schema. If the value in this field is "Yes" then the components will not be indexed. Note this also includes when you publish them directly - Im not sure if this is what you need... UPDATE Having just checked the source code, I see now that there is not ...
