Sitecore Rocks makes Sitecore developers happy.
Directly integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio 2010/2012/2013, Sitecore Rocks provides a fast and streamlined development experience with tools that developers are used to.
I am facing an issue with SiteCore Rocks plugin installation, During the last phase of download of this plugin, I get an error .. Extension could not installed due to the below error, "Exception occurred during a webclient request".
Please help regarding this. I have verified and saw the WebClient service is up and running in my services list
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?
I am having issue in setting icons for content items in sitecore. All the icons are not being shown at all in the tree. Its blank. it looks so weird without the icons. I am able to set icons from the content editor in browser.
Not sure I follow. Sitecore Rocks is not installed using Nuget - it is installed using the Extensions and Tools dialog in Visual Studio.
You should be using version 1.5.0.
Can you confirm that you are using 1.5.0?
Sorry jacob for the delayed response. I am using the version 126.96.36.199.
I was on 1.5.0 when I actually posted the query .. but later at some point I dont know but it got fixed.
Now this happened again when I tried login to Visual Studio 2013 with a different MS credential. When I did this all the VS2013 setting were gone together with the Sitecore Rocks extension. When I reinstalled Sitecore Rocks again I ran into this issue again!!!
What could be the reason.
I'm using 188.8.131.52 with Sitecore 8. It seems that the "Design Layout" functionality does not support the new __Final Renderings field.
When I make changes using the Experience Editor, I do not see them in the Design Layout in Rocks.
Do you have plans to update this functionality?
I am using 184.108.40.206 version and I cannot find Create SPEAK View Model and Create SPEAK Typescript File options, this functionality explained here - http://laubplusco.net/sitecore-speak-v1-2-goodies/.
How to do these things in 220.127.116.11 version?
Thank you very much!!
They should be available when you right-click a View Rendering item (they is not available elsewhere). You should see a SPEAK folder at the very top of the context menu.
Another possibility is that you turned off the SPEAK features. Open Main menu | Sitecore | Turn Features On or Off and look for the SPEAK entry in the right side.
I recently installed Sitecore Rocks, I duplicated an existing item. When I update any field on the duplicate item, it is also updating the original item. I have to use Edit externally command to edit the field.
I believe, without using edit externally command I should be able to edit the field and save without altering the original item.
Please correct this intermittent issue.
I have setup placeholder setting for three placeholders I'm using. In Experience Editor, I can see placeholder and respective menu bar but non of the options (e.g. Choose Image, Modify Appearance, Remove Image) works.
If I modify text, Save Changed button on main menu doesn't get enabled.
It works fine for home page.
I'm sure I'm missing something but don't know what.
The following error message is returning when Preview any page in Sitecore Rocks:
CS0246: The type or namespace name '__ReSharperSynthetic' could not be found (are you missingg a using directive or an assembly reference?)
- Visual Studio Professional 2013
- Sitecore 7.2
- Sitecore Rocks 18.104.22.168
Hmm... I thought that was fixed in 22.214.171.124.
You can manually remove it from the [YourSite]/sitecore/shell/WebService/Browse.aspx page.
Or you can try to first uninstall, then install the connection by right-click the website in the Sitecore Explorer and selecting Connections | Remove Server Components and then Update Server Components - that should update the Browser.aspx file.
I'm using VS2015 enterprise and Rocks 126.96.36.199.
When I'm trying to add new connection I always get https://gyazo.com/8f3df0bbb9462df3ae1ea692024f71c0 but I can access it via this url in browser.
Do you have any idea what is wrong?
Looks like the web service has not been properly installed or some security issue.
Could the check the following:
* Open [YourSite]/sitecore/shell/WebService/service2.asmx in a browser.
* Open [YourSite]/sitecore/shell/WebService/service.asmx in a browser.
* Try using the Good Old Web Service instead of the Hard Rocks Web Service
Hi, I had left fusion log viewer on while using Sitecore Rocks and this caused a lot of slowness in visual studio while loading, right clicking etc. Turned off the log and things work well. The files that Sitecore rocks was trying to bind to and causing a ton of logs was:
It has no noticeable effect with fusion logs turned off, thought I would mention just in case it is interesting.
Is there an easy way to add items to the "Favourites" area (star icon) that appears at the very top of Sitecore Explorer ? There doesn;t appear to be any documentation about this feature at all.
I can drag & drop an item from the tree here but only if the item and the favourites icon are in the same view port.. i.e. you can't add an item that is right at the bottom of the tree as you can never scroll back up to the favourites icon!
Screen shots here also show a favourites icon on the Sitecore Explorer window toolbar.. I don;t see that and the ability to add new buttons to the toobar is disabled.
You are right, there is no other way than drag'n'drop to add to favourites. I will add that to the todo list.
The yellow star in the toolbar was originally for Libraries (or Folders), but that has since been integrated into the Sitecore Explorer.
Every time I try and add a new SiteCore Layout, I receive an error stating that the file ItemTemplates\Sitecore\Layouts\Layout.zip\MyTemplate.vstemplate is being used by another process. I'm using VS2015 (Enterprise). I've tried restarting VS and rebooting the machine with no luck.
