Search Index Troubleshooting

I have a rule of thumb. If I am being asked the same question twice a week, I am writing a blog post.
Today I have been asked the same question twice, so here you go.
I’ve blogged about search a lot, but one important thing still needs to be covered. Once you are convinced that going with the “new” search is the right way to go, you may have to deal with its configuration. On a two or more server environment, without proper configuration, the search index may not be rebuilt after publishing.

My Dreamcore Presentation

Dreamcore is just around the corner and I am fully immersed in my presentation.
The topic is “Building Successful and Efficient Multilingual Solutions with Sitecore”.

My plan is to spend a few minutes showing the fundamentals of multilingual support in Sitecore and then drill down into the use cases and some real world scenarios I’ve witnessed over a few years.

I believe this format will be suitable for the beginners who are thinking about a multilingual implementation and also for the experienced folks as I have a few secret tricks up my sleeve!

If there anything specific you would expect from my presentation, please keep the comments coming.

By the way, full Dreamcore 2011 agenda can be found here:

Hope to see you there!

Disable WebDAV in Sitecore

If you are not sure what WebDAV is, please refer to this document on Sitecore Developer Network.
Briefly, quoting this doc:
WebDAV allows users of Web clients such as browsers to manage files on Web servers using Web protocols such as HTTP or HTTPS. With WebDAV, users can drag-and-drop files between the Windows desktop and the browser.
I would recommend disabling this feature on the Content Delivery side as WebDAV is not expected to be used there.
