Introducing the Profile Manager tool
Episerver Insight and the Profile store are powerful tools. But to make them even more powerful, we @ CodeArt have been developing a few tools to make them easier to work with. Here is the first one.
Episerver Forms: Adding custom validators to existing elements
It's easy to extend Episerver forms with custom validation types. But it's a little bit harder to add the new validation types to the existing elements. In this blog post I'll add an ultra simple letter-only validation option to the existing TextboxElement.
Episerver Forms: Adding Datasource for hidden field with Profile Store data
Some times, it can be handy to track additional data about the visitor along with a form submission. If you have Profile Store, stuff like DeviceId, sessionId and maybe even the ProfileId can definitely come in handy later when you are later processing the form submissions. Here is a code sample on how to do that.
Ascend 2019: Code Mania
Yesterday, I had the honor and pleasure of giving the traditional Code Mania demo at Episerver Ascend 2019 in Miami together with Fredrik Haglund. After popular demand, here is a blog post about some of the components we showed.
Getting more Insight (pun intended) into Episerver Profile Store
Profile Store, Insight, Tracker, Advance - Episerver offers a myriad of different (but connected) REST services for managing and tracking your visitors and prospects. It can be slightly confusing at first - and some of the documentation might be a tad misleading - but once you get the hang of it, they are really powerful tools. I've recently had a chance to explore them in depth. Here is what I've learned so far.
Episerver Forms and Pardot Form Handlers
Episerver comes with a wide range of connectors that allows you to connect Marketing Automation systems to Episerver through multiple integration points. However in some cases you might want to hook directly into the Marketing Automation systems form handler. In the case of SalesForce Pardot it's very easy to do!
The tricky redirect
Sometimes, when you are troubleshooting you forget the obvious in search of more complex reasons. Recently I had a case of that where an Episerver site kept redirecting the moment it was launched.
Site Map Generation with Custom Filter
There's a handful of great add-ons I use in almost every Episerver project - and several of them are from Geta. Here is a useful hint if you, like me, use the Geta SiteMap generator.

Getting started with Contentful UI Extensions - part 2
In this post, I'll show how to make a field editor that will let you have any kind of syntax highlighted code in a long text field, as well as taking a look at command line interface (CLI) and Github distribution.
Digizuite DAM for Episerver - try it out!
The Digizuite DAM for Episerver integration is now available in the Episerver nuget feed! We've worked long and hard on this, so feel free to have a look and try it out!
Getting started with Contentful UI Extensions - Part 1
Contentful has a handful of extension points, where you in a fairly straightforward and simple manner can extend the editorial experience with minimal development effort. In this post-series I'll show some examples of this.
