If you mean hidding the tab "Preview" in the ribbontoolbar of the experience manager you have to add that code in the "ext:ribbontoolbars" section of the configuration file, like this: <ext:ribbontoolbars> <ext:remove> <ext:extension id="PreviewPage"> <ext:apply> ...

JQuery is an independent library, that can co-exist with other libraries like Anguila. Here some steps that enable a developer to use JQuery in a GUI extension. 1) Update your JQuery file to use the noConflict method and pass it to a variable called for instance $j. 2) Reference the updated JQuery file in a group of resources used by your GUI Extension. &...

The storage configuration indeed allows you to specify "storages", that may be database or file system based, then bind item types and subtypes to a specific storage. For file-system based storages you can indeed specify any path you want, as long as the deployer has enough permissions to write to and delete from that location. Once you set up your ...

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"> ...

After doing some research I have found that the problem is most often associated with a missing cd_wai.jar file, which houses the Admin.class file. However, this was not my problem. After searching through the various folders I saw that we were missing the cd_wai_conf.xml (configuration) file which resolved the issue.

From your installation files, look in ..\Content Delivery\resources\schemas - You will find cd_storage_conf.xsd and cd_storage_dao_bundle.xsd. I generally add this (and all the other Tridion CD Schemas) as a Schema References in Visual Studio, it really helps when editing config files, and can help rapidly solve configuration issues. Update for Tridion 8.5:...

As you found out, the maximum number of results is 25 by default, and that is controlled via the cd_webservice_conf.xml file. You can turn the limit OFF completely, by setting it to 0 <DefaultTop>0</DefaultTop> But I strongly advise against this, as you don't know who the next developer is on your server, and whether he'll understand that ...

If you set up a new instance of SDL Tridion and you would like it to run under a custom binding you need to ensure that the configuration files are set up correctly to handle it. The configuration files are mentioned in this question on setting up SDL Tridion with multiple hosts headers: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9428360/i-set-up-my-sdl-tridion-...

There's a hotfix for that... (this is fixed in SP1). If you're on SQL Server (I think with Oracle it is exactly the same fix), run this on the preview database: IGNORE THIS, SEE UPDATE 2 UPDATE Now that I think of it... run this on all your Content Delivery Databases... UPDATE 2 Fixed with cumulative hotfix CD_2013.0.0.86156

IE contains a feature which attempts to “Automatically detect settings” by making use of the WPAD protocol to discover a web proxy. This is achieved in the following ways: As part of the DHCP configuration received by the host (or) By performing DNS request(s). The Web Client Service (responsible for WebDAV browsing) will perform auto-discovery more ...

I wrote a blogpost about this exact issue: http://albertromkes.com/2014/01/20/custom-resolvers-and-configuration/ In short: you have to load the Tridion.ContentManager.config file yourself from the configuration of the calling application (TcmServiceHost, Publisher, etc).

This is a somewhat common request, and one that I (as a techie) keep being baffled by. The usual story goes like this: Customer acquired Tridion back in the day when IT ruled the show. Tridion gets implemented behind 25 layers of security, because IT ruled the show Customer hires freelance content creators, struggles for 2 months to give access to platform, ...

These days, a fresh install of the CM is pretty painless. Just uninstall and then re-install where you wanted it. Any CD installations you have can probably just be copy/pasted, with the proviso that you fix up any hard-coded file system locations in your configs and publication targets.

You have two approaches: A - If the C and D drives are two separate EBS Volumes, you can do the following: Shut down the instance Take snapshot of existing volume Create new volume based on snapshot. During this step you determine the new size. Detach old volume Attach new larger volume. Extend the volume in Windows. B - If they belong to a single EBS ...

You may want to change it if you're not using TCM as the source content management system for Content Delivery. This is not yet a thing, but very soon it will be.

Resolved! So continuing the search after the post I see that Jan H affirms that he doesn't think it is a valid configuration to have two of the same itemType mappings Makes perfect sense in the context of the question/answer in the post Is it possible to configure Tridion’s deployer to send one ItemType to multiple storage types? although frustrating ...

If both parameters are set, then both settings are taken into account. If one of both is set, then only that one parameter is taken into account. If none are set, the cache defaults to an object size of 128. Of course, you can't really compare these two parameters in the sense that they correlate in terms of configurability. You can have 10000 objects in ...

I like Eric's answer and it's certainly the most accurate. I've found it to be a generally good idea to keep the versions of jQuery consistent across all extensions. There are functions and methods which are deprecated between major versions of jQuery. Based on what I've seen, any version of jQuery will work with Tridion. However, there is a caveat: ...

You should not run into any issues. SDL will always recommend installing these two databases on different machines. It is a fully supported scenario. If you are moving your Broker DB to the new machine, all you should need to do is edit your cd_broker_conf.xml (for 2009) or cd_storage_conf.xml (for 2011 or 2013). NOTE: Most implementations have more than ...

Yes, it's still the case in 2013. You need to set allowWriteOperationsInTemplates attribute to true, to the element called tridion.contentmanager.security in Tridion.ContentManager.config

It is possible to install on Windows 2008 R2 SP2, but not on Windows 2008 (no mater what SP it has). 2008 R2 and 2008 are different systems

One gotcha that made me pull hairs: look in the Windows Registry for the old path (C:\) and replace it with the new one. I saw weird behaviour because of that on both CM and CD. Obviously then, check all your config files (%TRIDION_HOME%\conf) and search and replace old/new paths. For example logback paths and explicit mentions of license files. In the ...

Fist of all you need a proper logback.xml, see this one logback.xml for an example. You can and should use Logback in your own code as well. Note the custom appender and logger in this example. Also you need the Logback JARs (based on SDL Tridion 2011 / SDL Tridion 2013) logback-classic.jar logback-core.jar slf4j-api.jar jcl-over-slf4j.jar (I am not sure ...

Does the "Everyone" group always have the same identifier (e.g. tcm:0-1-65568)? Yes, this is the default id assigned during Tridion installation How else would you find the Everyone ID (CME or code if you prefer)? You can query the Tridion_cm database in the TRUSTEES table (this will always be id=1) I understand this is a setting that's not visible in ...

There are normally three places that I would check for character display issues such as this: Do the characters look correct inside of the Components in the Tridion Content Management Explorer (CME)? Can you open the published page (assuming that this is not a Dynamic Component Presentation) in Notepad++ or similar on the web server? Do the characters look ...

Operations that might result in data loss are not yet in the UI, due to the challenges and risks involved. That includes changing the type of a field. So for that, you need to do what you did in the previous versions: edit the databases manually. There's a couple of new tables that you might not be aware of, so I'll try to outline all of the steps for ...

You should be able to achieve your goal by having a reverse proxy do some kind of authentication and then pass on the authenticated user's name in an HTTP header when proxying the request to the CM server. You then need to do some configuration on the CM server (I would recommend having a dedicated CM server for external access) including allowing ...

The max number of results to return is configurable in cd_webservice_conf.xml. It contains the element DefaultTop which controls this: <!-- OData specific settings. The default top value that will be used if the client doesn't specify one. The fixed publication id to use in the friendly URL, this allows only one publication to be queried through the ...

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. ...

You can use Oracle's JDBC thin driver syntax like so: <Storage Type="persistence" Id="database" dialect="ORACLESQL" Class="com.tridion.storage.persistence.JPADAOFactory" Url="jdbc:oracle:thin:@(DESCRIPTION= (ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=HOSTNAME)(PORT=PORT)) ...
