Few Sitecore Tips and Tricks

1) How to allow some characters in your Sitecore instance like parentheses? For example – you want to allow parantheses in Sitecore item name. How can you achieve that? Solution: <setting name=”ItemNameValidation” value=”^[w*$][ws-$]*((d{1,})){0,1}$”/> <setting name=”ItemNameValidation” value=”^[w*$][w)(s-$]*((d{1,})){0,1}$” /> 2) Are you not able to see Sitecore folder or item is in Content Editor tree? But you are able to see it using Sitecore search. Solution: Clearing Content Editor cache by IIS Reset will solve above issue. 3) Why does Sitecore remove “-” from page name? If you have below setting to replace space with “-” then ask client/user NOT to create page with “-” otherwise “-” will be replaced with ” ” (space) by Sitecore. <replace mode=”on” find=” ” replaceWith=”-“/> Solution: Don’t create page with “-” if above setting is ON. Have a happy Sitecore Journey!
