Upgrade to 9: How to handle the missing page related views

Jeroen Fürst    —       —    Article

Over the last couple of weeks we have worked on several upgrades of our existing sites to Kentico 9, which was released last month. While the upgrade process overall went pretty smooth, one issue popped up in almost all of our cases.

This post will give you insights on how we handled this.

Pages crawler not returning search results

Jeroen Fürst    —       —    Article
We are a big fan of widgets in our projects and this typically requires us to use a specific smart search index type to scan our content. In these scenarios it is recommended to use the pages crawler index type which indexes the HTML output of the pages. The pages crawler is more accurate than the standard pages index type as it also indexes content rendered via web parts and widgets.

Choose your modules wisely!

A couple of performance related topics seem to catch my attention lately. It concerns questions about the choice of using a website versus web application project type, reducing the memory usage of the application pools and speeding up the continuous integration build speed. My plan is to post a couple of blogs in the next couple of months to help you understand the requirements and provide you with practical tips that you can start using today.
