Sitecore Rocks makes Sitecore developers happy.
Directly integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio 2010/2012, Sitecore Rocks provides a fast and streamlined development experience with tools that developers are used to.
Please explain where the documentation for this actually lives at? I can not seem to get it to do anything and all I'd like is some documentation. The Sitecore rocks wiki is amazingly void of anything even remotely useful at all. Is there something I'm missing?
Among the other many, many steps, I have walked through just to get it to connect, which I could write a book on, the one thing I really wanted to do was to generate entities from my templates. Every single time I try to choose "generate class" (there are 2 of them, by the way), it throws an error. It would be really helpful if I even know what I was doing in trying to generate classes from my templates?
Not sure if this is the correct place to post, so apologies if not.
There seems to be a bug with the release, upwards of where the addition of proxy settings has been added. In the Sitecore.VisualStudio.Sites.Connections class, where it's loading the data from the config entry, it sets the BypassProxyOnLocal setting when using the useDefaultWebProxy value from the file.
The trouble is, this leaves UseDefaultWebProxy to true, which is the default - causing the plugin to fail as it cannot be left at true when the proxy address has been populated.
It's an easy fix - is there a way for the community to contribute, or does it have to be left for others to fix?
The same issue is in the Save method as well - albeit slightly different problem.
Thanks in advance,
Love the idea of Sitecore Rocks but cant seem to connect to local instance. Keep getting the "Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel with authority 'localhost'. Remote certificate invalid..."
Here's my setup..
1. local sitecore instance setup in local IIS using :80 & :443. 443 Uses self-signed cert.
2. Content is displayed by just going to http://localhost. Stage is displayed by going to https://localhost/sitecore/login.
3. DB's are remote.
Data provider: Hard Rock Web Service
Host name: localhost OR https://localhost
User name: smu\XXXXXXXX
Any ideas why I cant connect? Is a self-signed cert not enough to authorize connection?
I referred below website to create sitecore nuget packages.
I followed all the steps and able to create sitecore nuget packages. After installing the sitecore package.nuspec. Only I can see the installed item under template/user defined section but not under the sitecore/content/home/About or any item.
I am getting this error.
"System.ServiceModel.ProtocolException: The remote server returned an unexpected response: (400) Bad Request. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request. at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() at System.ServiceModel.Channels.HttpChannelFactory.HttpRequestChannel.HttpChannelRequest.WaitForReply(TimeSpan timeout)"
How to create sitecore package and install using nuget?
Please help me how to create sitecore nuget package for sitecore module?
When using Sitecore Rocks with sitecore 6.6 then i experience a problem writing the name of my localhost site called local3fsitecore, whenever i try to write it manually or select it from the dropdown box, Sitecore rocks always switches back to the default localhost setting. I only got it working by pasting the whole "http://local3fsitecore" into the editbox from the clipboard.
Finally when i tried to view the Lucene indexes, then i only get an exception saying that "the located assemblys manifest definition does not match the assembly reference". So Sitecore Rocks has been compiled for another version of Lucene obviously, but so has the indexviewer in the marketplace, making it impossible to view the index using any sitecore related tool.
1) I have fixed the Connection dialog in the next release - thanks for reporting.
2) CMS 6.6 upgraded Lucene (and CMS 7.0 will use yet another version of Lucene). I am still trying to figure out how to handle this. Until then, it is a known issue. But thanks for reporting.
In my Visual Studio preferences I've set Chrome as default browser.
On the Sitecore Rocks extension pages, whenever there's a link to browse an item I get the error
"The default browser could not be opened
do you want to open Internet Explorer"
Is there any way to make this work?
Thanks in advance
I'm trying to use the "Sitecore" context menu in the Solution Explorer, but it seems as though that particular menu item is grayed out and unavailable. I've also noticed that when I create a new Layout, I don't get the next modal dialog which is supposed o ask me if I'd like to create a Sitecore Item from the file. Hm. Any ideas?
I'm running VS 2010 as an Administrator (also tried as not an Administrator) on Windows 7 64 bit.
Have you connected your Visual Studio project to Sitecore?
Have a look here: http://www.sitecore.net/Community/Technical-Blogs/John-West-Sitecore-Blog/Posts/2011/06/Attach-a-Sitecore-Rocks-Connection-to-a-Visual-Studio-Project.aspx
I installed (and uninstalled/reinstalled) version 0.7.14.8, and I can no longer connect to my Sitecore instances, either local or remote. It was working before this release. We are running 6.2.0 (rev. 101105). When I try to expand the node or add a new connection and expand the node, I get an error dialog with "The item was not found. It may have been deleted." and can go no further.
I installed the latest version as of this post, for both VS 2010 and 2012. In VS 2012, I created two Sitecore projects, one each, within a single solution. I then used the Sitecore menu and selected Sitecore Explorer. The window came up, but after I tried to dock it, VS crashed, and I then received this error when I opened VS each time after the crash:
The 'Sitecore.VisualStudio.SitecorePackage, Sitecore.Rocks.VisualStudio, Version=0.7.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1cc94664b6ed6bb0' package did not load correctly.
The Sitecore menu still shows up in the main toolbar, but choosing any of the options from it yields no result whatsoever, no matter how many times I try to reinstall it. Any ideas on what I can do to get this working again?
That sounds odd. I have had one report of this 3 months ago, so it is a real issue, although not very common.
Sounds to me like WPF acting up.
1. Can you use Sitecore Rocks Windows (the one that does not use Visual Studio)? You can get it from vsplugins.sitecore.net.
2. Do you have Actipro WPF components installed?
3. The other report mentioned, that it could be a clash between VS plugins. Do you have any other plugins installed?
4. Do none of the menu items work? I assume that you do not dock the Sitecore Explorer before trying them. If so, the Visual Studio package is not loaded.
5. I also assume that you are running VS Professional, Premium or Ultimate.
When my mouse is in the Sitecore Explorer and I use my scroll wheel to scroll down the tree of items, there are two problems. First, using the scroll wheel doesn't even work. Second, and more importantly, At seemingly random (but still quite frequent) times when I forget that the scroll wheel doesn't work in the explorer, I scroll and then VS starts taking up 25% of my CPU and hanging until I kill the process.
Unfortunately you are right. I am guessing that you are using VS 2012 and/or .NET 4.5, which has been giving you a bit of a headache.
Anyway it has been fixed, and a new release is coming soon.
Thanks for reporting.
