SDL is the name of the company that develops, maintains and sells SDL Tridion. SDL (http://www.sdl.com) is a publicly traded company with roots in the early 90s (founded in 1992) with a strong focus on Global Information Management, and especially professional translation of Software and Documentation. SDL is a TLA (Three Letter Acronym) for "Software and ...

This appears to be due to a change (or defect) in how Chrome 36 handles the xlink namespace. The Tridion vendor is working on a hotfix to adjust to the Chrome xlink handling - if I hear anything, I'll update here.

Even though this question seems to be based a lot on "hearsay", I'll give you my best shot. Can Tridion Categories and Keywords be used to build a taxonomy-driven website? Absolutely YES. I know of two things you need to pay attention to: Dimensions on your taxonomy Cache Dimensions A taxonomy can have many types of relationships defined. You can have ...

I have seen problems like this before. Here's the thing: During installation of Oracle client, installer checks for .Net version installed on the box. It then installs corresponding components. In your case, most probably you had .Net 3.5 at that time, so Oracle installer installed components for .Net 3.5. Later, Tridion installer updated your .Net version ...

Through window.dialogArguments you can access basically any field of the item. Where window.dialogArguments.getFields() points to the current field (the one with the Custom URL on it), window.dialogArguments.container.getFields() will return you the entire fields collection of the item. To get a specific field, you can use window.dialogArguments.container....

As it is not possible to copy across publications, Just By renaming the publications for your operations you can do this. Mapping xml is also the option for this but renaming seems to be more comfartable. 1.Rename 04a --> temp 2.Create Content Porter Package 3.Rename temp --> 04a 4.Rename 04e --> temp 5.Import package in to temp 6.Rename temp -->...

At quick glance, looks like you are adding the reference to your commandset from your resource group in the wrong place, you should add it like: <cfg:fileset> <cfg:file type="script">/Counter/Counter.js</cfg:file> <cfg:file type="reference">Counter.CommandSet</cfg:file> </cfg:fileset> In your example you have it ...

As explained on the Tridion Practice project, you can easily add your own markup for SiteEdit (or Experience Manager for that matter). Basically all that is needed for SiteEdit to work is the correct markup around your Component Presentations and the fields you want inline editable. Add to that the Page markup and bootstrap script and your Page will be ...

Despite popular belief, the Cache Channel Service itself does not handle caching, it only handles propagation of what items should be taken out of the cache. The cache itself is part of the Broker and it is enabled or disabled in the storage conf. The Cache Channel Service is there because the Deployer and Broker(s) can run in a separate memory space or JVM,...

You can use the ComponentMetaFactory class to interrogate the metadata of your component. Criteria c1 = new ItemTitleCriteria("MC%", Criteria.Like); //Create query Query myQuery = new Query(c1); String[] itemURIs = myQuery.ExecuteQuery(); ComponentPresentationAssembler cpAssembler = new ComponentPresentationAssembler(); ComponentMetaFactory cmFactory = ...

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> ...

This is indeed achievable. The following example should clear things up. You can use ComponentMetaFactory (passing in the publication ID), and then use it to retrieve the metadata for the component (passing in the Items ID). This can be used to gather all sorts of information about the components metadata such as creation dates, custom metadata, initial ...

The last 2 bullet points have definitely been addressed in 2013. You can tab properly (I remember issues with IE though, not sure if it's still an issue), and you can start typing a schema name to get it in the drop down (btw, that works also in CME list views, you can start typing to move to a component or page in the list). I don't think we fixed the ...

In the UnPublishEventArgs there is a member UnPublishInstruction. This will have a property - StartAt - If StartAt property is set to DateTime.MinValue that means the Unpublishing is scheduled for Immediate unpublish and if it is set to a particular datetime, that means it is schedule to unpublish at some other time.

It sounds to me like you are trying to rewrite functionality which already exists in Tridion, namely dynamic linking. If you use the Default Finish Actions TBB your published page or component presentation output will contain TCDL tags, which on deployment get transformed into JSP code for the standard Tridion dynamic linking taglib (which does exactly what ...

I think the error message is self-explanatory. You are trying to run Tridion in a server with more CPUs (it counts the cores, so 2 dual core processors would mean "4 CPUs") than allowed by your license. Check your server CPUs (and cores) and the license file. There should be some xml attributes like license-type="server_cpu_count and the usage-limit="4"

This is most certainly by design, it should be impossible to move a page if the page is published to a specific location. You have three options - the third one I wouldn't do, but it's there: 1) Unpublish the pages and then move them to the desired location, then republish 2) Create copies of the pages and publish them - then simply unpublish and delete ...

The schema on which your component is based on should have at least one Keyword field (a Text field with values coming from Category). Here is an example:

I think you refer to a Scheduled Publishing task. It is possible do accomplish it using CME or the API. You can get some details here Publish / Republishing - Login is required. If what you want is a Timer, then I would recommend to create an application or service that will use the API to publish when the timer period is elapsed.

After a bit of experimentation it turns out that Category Management is a Right specifically to allow creating and modifying Categories, however it does not control the ability to work with Keywords within. Permissions on the Category control what groups can RWDL Keywords. So to prevent a group from being able to create or modify Categories while still ...

I think the answer to this has two parts. First part is resolving the url to the correct publication, the second part is knowing to which audience your mail is sent. The first part is (relatively) easy. Using a custom TCDL tag, you could make your own link resolving logic. We implemented something similar to link between two separate publications (...

Best scenario is always to take an "offline" backup, which means: shutdown all SDL Tridion services (also on other servers in case of an outscaled scenario) shutdown IIS (or at least the CMS website) backup the database following MS SQL Server documentation, use a full database backup In case you are doing the backup as part of your standard maintenance ...

One IMPORTANT thing you'll need to think of is that a component can be published in different states on different pages, so there can be a scenario where multiple versions are published. Technically it's possible, actually there's probably a lot of ways to achieve this. Here's some topics I'd look into: 1) GUI Extensions - you'll need to show the version ...

Not sure why do you want to get this information from the Tridion Config file but you may follow below steps to get the versions - For Content Manager: you can check the "About SDL Tridion" tab in the Dashboard as shown below Alternatively, you may click on the top-right corner SDL | Tridion text to open a pop-up and see the version as shown below: For ...

Like premkumar subramanian's answer says, the logs raise an error on saving a publication item. Try importing with the Dependency Filters set to exclude everything. The dependency filter setting makes sure only those items which you select (the pages) are imported. This also means you need to make sure that all dependencies of the pages you are importing ...

If you're using IIS 7.5 and have the redirect module installed, you could add something like this to the SDL Tridion web.config: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <configuration> <system.webServer> <rewrite> <rules> <rule name="HTTP/S to HTTPS Redirect" enabled="true" stopProcessing="true"> ...

I'm not sure there is a correct answer here... i think it's based on the client needs. Here's an opinion... It's now possible to store binaries in the broker database, it makes a great case for managing them in the CMS, so that external 'consumers' (development teams, partner websites, load balanced machines, etc) can consume / store these files and ...

You need to make a choice between static and dynamic linking: The advantage of dynamic links is that if you move the search page, the link URL is updated automatically. however, in your case using static links is not so bad if the search page is never going to be moved or unpublished (which seems likely to be the case) - especially if there are many ...

Open the item and check the "Locked by" section on the Info tab. Then contact that person. If it's a system account, the item is likely locked by workflow and needs to go through the workflow process to unlock. If it's locked by a person who no longer works there, you'll need a Tridion Administrator to unlock the item for you.
