Cutting Edge: Web Content Development Podcast EpisodePodcasts Umbraco
I had the pleasure of speaking to Jonathan Ames on the Cutting Edge: Web Content Development podcast and the episode has just gone live.
We had a great discussion about how to create a great editing experience in #Umbraco and how we do things here at ClerksWell
You can watch it on YouTube or listen to it on any of these podcast services:
Umbraco 13 Issue FoundUmbraco
On Friday I was testing out the Release Candidate for Umbraco 13 and I found an issue with the Angular Filters for ncRichText and truncate. I raised an issue in the Umbraco GitHub Repo and they have been able to test it out and replicate it.
It's nice to be able to contribute by testing things out and raising issues, especially during the release candidate versions.
Code Review Emoji GuideCommunity Conferences Tips
Last weekend I went to DDD East Midlands and had a great time with my podcaster friends and I also saw some Umbraco friends there too.
After the conference we played some pool and then went back to our other friend's house for a few drinks and a good catch up.
Whilst we were there I learned about the Code Review Emoji Guide. I thought it was great and worth sharing with you too.
A rating on security headersUmbraco
Last night I made some improvements to the security headers on codeshare, and now when you test it on https://securityheaders.com it gets an A rating.
Find me on Mastodon from now onCommunity
Today I did a lighthouse score scan for this site and it got almost 100 across the board.
Today I had the pleasure of talking to Jeavon Leopold about Slimsy, what it is and why we should use it.
Finally I have managed to move codeshare over to Umbraco Cloud using my free Umbraco Cloud hosting that I get with my MVP rewards.
It's been a few weeks in the making but I decided to make a go of it when I realised that we at work are going to be using Umbraco Cloud a lot more going forward.
I've enjoyed the process of moving it to Umbraco Cloud using the Clean Starter Kit, especially writing the script to scrape the content from the old site and the Import code to import it into the new site.
When I used to work with Umbraco Cloud before, one of the problems I had was to do with transferring content from one environment to the next and it failing due to the amount and size of data being transferred.
This came up again today, but I am pleased to find out there is an app setting you can add to get it to put the data into batches and that resolves the issue.
Here's the app setting I ended up using:
I decided to turn the latest articles partial view into a block list row so I could make it configurable.
Now you can choose the article list to display articles from, the number to show per page and whether to show pagination or not.
Fixed the Dev DiaryUmbraco
That was a simple fix.
I was able to fix the dev diary by editing the latest articles partial view.
Where I was getting the first article list page, I changed it to check if the current page is an article list already then use that, otherwise use the first one you can find.
Here is the code:
if(Model is not ArticleList articleList)
articleList = UmbracoContext.Content.GetAtRoot().DescendantsOrSelf<ArticleList>().FirstOrDefault();
This is my first diary entry using Clean Starter Kit
