Another way of doing this would be to write a number of mvc html helpers that would use the smarttarget query api to fetch promotions etcetera. The flow would be something like get parameters from the html helper (promo name, nr of items, region name,...) construct a smarttarget query send a query and receive xml with results. I believe the results are tcm ...

Have you applied the Cumulative Update and the latest hotfixes on top of the installation? REL DCPs with ASP.NET website were causing issues. Before Web 8, the target language was controlled with the Publication Target and the deployer. In Web 8, publication targets vanished and you could only control the language via the Deployer. To overcome this issue ...

You could put the content out using REL and transform the TCDL tags yourself. when you return your content from the broker. EDIT I agree with the process Harald discusses above - I have tested and confirm you can get the Component Presentation HTML - BUT any dynamic component links are not available (it doesn't go through the Tridion REL engine) - it ...

It looks like you need to brush up on your "read the documentation" skills. This functionality was added with Tridion 2011 SP1. Read all about it in this topic in Live Content "Forwarding Claims to a WebService" (login required). Short answer: yes, you can. How to do it is described in the documentation.

I am pretty sure you can publish whatever weird content you like and as long as it contains valid TCDL/REL it will be parsed by Content Delivery before returning it via the ComponentPresentationAssembler or Page equivalent. I think the output format of the dynamic template must still be REL though - its no good setting it to Text or XML, putting some TCDL ...

Be careful about using REL when publishing ASCX or Java Taglib markup. REL is meant to be used when storing content in the DB, however ASCX and Taglibs need to be published to the filesystem in order for the application server to execute them. Otherwise your ASCX/Taglib markup will simply be rendered as a non executed string of markup. Also on the syntax ...

The output format of a Dynamic Component Template overrides the target language of a publication target - that's why it works. The documentation is perhaps not explicit about this behavior. To expand on that first sentence... by design, Tridion will allow you to have different output formats within the same publication. Initially (think 10 years ago), ...

Looks like you have a classic "index page with summaries/teasers pointing to detailed article pages". My understanding is that the origin attribute is there to exclude the current page from the Dynamic Linking algorithm, i.e. it is the URI of the page that list the dynamic link (this page). But when you're rendering a DCP used in multiple pages linking to ...

To get this work, we would also need to specify the target language in the tcdl-conf.xml file in the deployer. Enabling publishing of Pages with REL format Dynamic Component Presentations Update: I looked at the documentation again and I see the property name to set the target language is different from what you have specified below. Please give a try at ...
