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?

<setting name="ItemNameValidation" value="^[\w\*\$][\w\s\-\$]*(\(\d{1,}\)){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.

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="-"/>

Don't create page with "-" if above setting is ON.

Have a happy Sitecore Journey!
