Listing all endpoints in Optimizely CMS 12 / .NET 5
Routing has significantly changed in .NET 5 - and that affects many parts of Optimizely (Episerver) CMS 12. For example we have to get used to endpoints a middleware. As I am working on upgrading a few different add-ons I found it could be useful to see which routes are registered out of the box.
New Project: Optimizely (Episerver) Health Checker
Wouldn't it be nice if there was just one place you could go and get an instant overview of the health of your Optimizely (Episerver) installation? With checks that are both technical, functional, business and covers product, addons and implementation? Here it is. Or at least the start of something that could be very useful.
Using TwentyThree video service with Episerver
Videos and well executed webinars are key tools in achieving a higher engagement and conversion rate from your visitors and customers. TwentyThree is a powerful video hub and webinar service. I was lucky enough to get an account and access to their API and that escalated quickly into a prototype integration into Episerver.
Adhering to Consent with Cookie Information for Episerver
In the EU the past year has added even more rules and regulations to which cookies can be set, which data can be collected and which consents are needed for it. While it may not be tricky to add a basic consent box, adding one that adhere to all the proper legislation and then follow the consents given can be a bit more challenging. In this post I take a deep dive into how Cookie Information's solution together with their Connector for Episerver can make it easier - and faster to accomplish.
Thoughts on the Episerver/Optimizely Acquisition
When one of the market leaders in digital experience / content management / e-commerce acquires the market leader in Optimization and Experimentation - great things can be expected. But how will it differ from the optimization techniques used by Episerver customers today? Here are my thoughts.
Profile Manager v2 - KQL edition
We just launched a new version of the online tool Profile Manager - a tool that makes it easier for developers and content analysts to work with Episervers Profile Store. The new version lets you easily try out different KQL queries and build Filter Definitions with them.
Experimenting with Wikipedia topics for Content
Automatically tagging your content with topics from a known, well described topic base like Wikipedia can have many cool uses. You can organize your content, suggesting keywords and outbound links, not to mention that you can build up interest profiles of your visitors. These interest profiles can the be used to suggest appropriate content and keep your visitors engaged. Inspired by Episerver Content Intelligence and a couple of earlier projects I've done in the past, I decided to perform an experiment to see how far I could get with a DIY approach as opposed to the traditional cloud-based NLP/AI.
Using Episerver Forms to book meetings in Outlook with Microsoft Power Automate
It's not as hard as you might think - and doesn't require any code - to connect your Episerver Forms with hundreds of other systems, using services like Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Flow), Azure Logic Apps, IFTTT or Zapier. I made a 5 minute video, showing how you can let your visitors request a meeting on a given date from a form on your website, and then having it being automatically booked in your Outlook 365 calendar.
