Preview multiple Visitor Groups directly while browsing your Optimizely site
Visitor groups are great - it's an easy way to add personalization towards market segments to your site. But it does come with it's own set of challenges if used intensively. For example it can be hard to predict how any given page will look for visitors with a specific combination of visitor groups - and viewing it in a proper way often requires more than what you see in the quick preview mode. Here's a bit of code that will help you out.
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.
Powerslice: Identify unused blocks
Powerslice might have a few years on it's back, but it's still a great editorial tool, when you are working with large amounts of content and have access to Episerver Find. Here's an example of a recent slice I made that let's editors easily identify unused blocks.
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.
Getting started with Contentful UI Extensions - Part 3
The Curious Case of Content Modelling
Having the right content model (the structure of your content types) is very important in order to end up with good, usable (and reusable) content. I believe that is something that most content management aficionados can agree on. But what is a good content model? And who should be modelling your content? In this blog post I will try to discuss a few opinions on this topic.
Distributed Content: Delivering an Episerver Web Experience with Contentful Content
The move in the market towards headless could also be seen as a tendency towards a deeper decoupling between content and experience delivery. Inspired by a few discussions, I've tried my hands on an uncommon combination: Contentful providing content delivered through an Episerver web experience layer.
Auto Tagging Using Search
You don't always have to go the full AI route to get AI like results. In this blog post I'll describe an approach I've used several times (and for multiple purposes) with pretty decent results. Instead of classification algorithms, deep learning or neural networks I'll just simply query my favorite search engine.
