Fixing “tax total” differences

Sometimes you will need / want to display the price including tax on the line items of your cart. When you do this, you may see differences in the totals, using the calculators in Commerce, between the sum of the prices in your cart as they are displayed and the sum from the calculator.

POC: Upgrade EPiCommerce without losing orders?

So you want to update your EPiServer Commerce site, but you don’t want to lose orders. That’s still not really possible, a little downtime is still needed, or I missed something. So I did a little POC. I created a “messaging” service. You can send a cart to it. The cart will be put into … Continue reading POC: Upgrade EPiCommerce without losing orders?

Remember me, (re)store visited pages and categories

I'm looking forward to the Profile Store in EPiServer, but in the mean time I want some information to be remembered. You can, of course, create your own persistent visitor groups, but who knows what will change when the Profile Store arrives.

Problem is, I find, that if you set them to strict or to easy, you will need a new deploy, if you manage them in your web.config. There is … Continue reading Manage your security headers in EPiServer

A custom localization provider for EPiServer 7, revisited

Not really a big post, but I got some requests to update the provider for a newer version EPiServer. So version "2" is compatible with 7.7.1 and above. I also added on request an option for automatic translations through an external provider.

Schedule XForm data mailings

Our client did not want an email very single time a customer filled in a form, but instead wanted a scheduled mailing with all entries. As I could not find a way to add additional options to the ChannelOptions I decided to overrule the functionality of the "Email" option. If we take Alloy (WebForms version) … Continue reading Schedule XForm data mailings

Indexing Blocks with EPiServer Search

This week I needed to add Blocks used on a page to EPiServer Search Index as content of the page they were used on. This is supported in Find, but as we are not using Find in this project, I needed a different solution. First I added an extra property to my base class to … Continue reading Indexing Blocks with EPiServer Search
