Continuing on with the creation of Alchemy Plugin videos, I’ve just added a new one to show how to upload a bunch of multimedia items into SDL Tridion. The video is posted after the jump.
When mass publishing content from Tridion, the publish job is handled as a single transaction. Using the Alchemy Page Publisher plugin it’s possible to perform this task but create single items for publishing.
After the jump I’ve created a short video to demonstrate this functionality.
We’ve been quietly releasing some new plugins over at the Alchemy Webstore. As part of those releases I’ve made some quick demonstration videos as it’s far nicer to watch a video showing how to use a plugin than reading the description
To crack things off, after the jump we have the first in the series dedicated to generating Tridion documentation automatically.
With a number of versions of SDL Tridion, SDL Web (and soon to be SDL Tridion Sites) out there with Alchemy users, our latest version of the plugin development framework contains some major updates for the core service.
There’s been quite a lot written about Duplicate Binary Issues in SDL Tridion. A couple of years ago I released a PowerTool to solve this issue. Knowing it can still be troublesome for some SDL Tridion users, I decided to give it a little rewrite and release it as an alchemy plugin.
The last few versions of Alchemy have allowed you to update it’s software directly within the CMS. As we make improvements to the API and new functionality, it is key to update to the later versions. To show you how simple this process it, i’ve made a quick recording to walk through the process.
I’ve been keeping a little notepad file on my machine for a while some of common code snippets that help when building SDL Tridion Gui / Alchemy extensions. I thought it would be great to share them with the community in the hope that they can help someone, and others can contribute.
Last week I had the pleasure to attend SDL Connect as a guest, speaker and sponsor. My presentation was focused on creating a Technical Strategy for Customer Experience (CXM).
We recently worked with one our customers looking to implement personalization within their SDL Tridion environment. The client was looking to use either SDL’s Experience Optimization (XO)* or Adobe’s Target product.
This years SDL Tridion User Group in Ohio is a wrap. SDL came to present their road map for the Tridion platform. I presented some updates to Alchemy and a number of plugins that are under development.
