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"> ...

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, ...

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 ...

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 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.

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

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

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 ...

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 ...

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)) ...

Looking at port 1433 I assume you are talking about MS SQL server. According to this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287932 Ports in the range between 1024 and 5000 should be open.

You won't need to flip anything for the content to work. The editing fields in Tridion support RTL languages just fine. You'll want to mark it as RTL in the HTML/CSS of the resulting web page, and of course ensure that you use a sensible encoding across the board. You might also want to use a font that displays Hebrew characters clearly. All told, I ...

Once you've removed the legacy templates, I believe that if you re-run the installer with LEGACY_VISIBLE=TRUE, as per the installation documentation, then you should be able to de-select the legacy pack and remove it from the system. That will probably also take care of removing the Template Types from your config. Just be absolutely sure you've removed all ...

Tridion's user interface is just a web site. You can expose it privately or publicly, via http or https, with or without a VPN, however you wish. It's more a question of how you want to configure you're environment.

Have you tried increasing the SendTimeout of your local (client side) binding, rather than the setting you found on the server? Default is 1 minute, which would seem to match your exception. Code & XML config examples available here.

Check the following logs to see what's happening: The Tridion Event Log The Windows security log Any IIS logging ( event log and the website logging ) If nothing is logged, use an LDAP sniffer or Fiddler to see what's happening.

Assuming that the whole of the website Publication is published out to the virtualDirectory folder (i.e. the 'Publication URL' is virtualDirectory), then you can map this in the cd_dynamic_conf.xml file (within your website's /bin/config folder and the Content Delivery Webservice) using a Publication element: <Publication Id="95"> <Host Domain="...

Another way to solve this might be to have everyone run the same set-up scripts. In the example scripts at Tridion Practice, the Master Setup script begins by setting the following locations, which everyone can set appropriately for their own system. $InetPub = "C:\inetpub" $InstallerHome = "C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\Tridion" $TempLocation = "C:\...

As a new answer to an old question, SDL Tridion Sites 9.1 added the ability to create and read custom configuration files as part of one or more extensions as part of the add-ons feature. See how to create a custom Add-on configuration file. Specifically for this question, the "Schema Titles" could be added to the specified JSON to be read and used with ...

The page is published in the Staging/Preview site only. Live should not be affected, for that you explicitly need to publish. This is by design. If you're using the XPM then users would expect to see the latest content for inline editing.

Some of views has ExtendableArea functionality, in this areas you can simply embed your control and associate its initialization with any of the view events. Unfortunately Link popup is not that view. From my practice, when I have to extend existing view which does not have any valid extensibility points, I`m using http://tridion.uibeardcore.com/2014/02/js-...
