Sitefinity Stuff

Help, Modules & Talk

Welcome
This Month of October

Hello, and welcome to my corner of the world. My name is Darrin Robertson and I am a Progress Sitefinity partner, a Sitefinity developer at American Eagle and this is my site where I put some of the things I do with Sitefinity.

And it has been a while!

But with the recent release of Sitefinity 13.0 and now 13.1 I am looking to start posting again. I do have a lot of notes and topics, several of which are now obsolete. Speaking of obsolete I have been going through my code for this site and looking to remove/rewrite all the now obsolete solutions.

Another major update for me will be upgrading the eCommerce solution I have implemented. I have created an integration with Snipcart which you can read about in a recent post.

If you have anything you would like to write about feel free to drop me a suggestion.

This post is for those that don't want that but prefer to display something a bit more friendly and are looking for help tracking those, 'only happens in production with a random customer', errors.

CLI Upgrade

Upgrading Sitefinity continues to improve. Back in the day, it was best to upgrade by each major version. Then NuGet packages came along and support for upgrading multiple major versions was supported. Now we have CLI and as of 13.1 it is quite robust and the way going forward I think.

For Help

Help

Need some help with Sitefinity? Some development or consulting? Small business work or enterprise level, I can help you out through myself and my employment with American Eagle.
