Google reCaptcha is a popular tool to help secure our forms against spam bots. Often email services will check our forms to ensure we have one present and you may be asked for one to be added. That happened to me. Sitefinity has its own forms and reCaptcha tools but often I find myself creating my own custom form widgets to quickly get the requirement that I have been asked to develop. In this post I look at how to get one added to a custom form you may have created in Sitefinity.
Sitefinity has a few hidden gems and helpful utilities which are very handy to know about. It would be nice if they had a page listing these out. Recently I needed a list of countries. I knew the eCommerce module dealt with such a list so where was it? I went looking and found not only the list but a little bit extra.
Those C# developers coming to Sitefinity will often use the 'using' keyword to effectively use and dispose of objects. I do this as well but in Sitefinity there is one time when it may seem like the right idea to use it when in fact it is not.
The new HTTP protocol, HTTP2 is here. You can see it being used on the web if you know where to look. It is something we need to be aware of, understand how it works and how to take advantage of it. For Sitefinity projects we need to consider what we may change in our project structure and processes to address and take advantage of the protocol. First things first, lets briefly discuss what the protocol is, how do we implement it and finally what we need to change to take advantage of it.
