Getting all non published variations

I got a question from a colleague today: A customer has multiple languages (8 of them). They need to make sure all variants are published in all languages. That is of course a reasonable request, but there is no feature builtin for such requirement. But good news is that can be done with...

Watch out for Singletons

If you are a seasoned Episerver developer, you should (and probably, already) know about the foundation of the framework: dependency injection. With the Inversion of control framework (most common, Structuremap, but recent versions of Framework allow much more flexible options), you can easily register your implementations, without having to manually create each and...

Multiple catalogs: Without catalog name(s)

My previous blog posts about multiple catalogs in multiple sites setting here and here has helped one customer (hopefully more) to address their problem.

Index or no index, that’s the question

In most of the case, processing the Urls before it reaching the server code...

Package equivalent promotion type in Episerver Commerce

Recently we got this question on how to create package-equivalent promotion type in Episerver Commerce, from https://world.episerver.com/forum/developer-forum/Episerver-Commerce/Thread-Container/2018/2/is-there-a-built-in-group-discount/ I already recommended to use package for such purpose, because of several reasons: Package is a builtin feature, and is fully supported by the framework, both on UI level and API level. It has been well tested...

As your products are being constantly updated, you would naturally want them to be properly (and timely) indexed – as that’s crucial to have the search results that would influence your customers into buying stuffs. For example, if you just drop the prices of your products , you would want those products to...
