Sitecore Rocks makes Sitecore developers happy.
Directly integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio 2013/2015, 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?

Could you help me is resolving this. Thanks!
Are you having issues downloading Sitecore Rocks from Visual Studio Gallery?
That I cannot help you with, but alternatively you can download Sitecore Rocks from AppVeyor:
Apologies if already asked but can't see a way to search the Q&A section.
I've been running Rocks version 1.5 for a while with the TDS Connector. I just tried connecting it to a Sitecore 8.2 instance and got a No Service error. Assuming 1.5 doesn't support Sitecore 8.2?
I installed Rocks 2.0 and can connect to Sitecore, but there appears to be no plugins? I really love my TDS connector, is there a way to get it working with Rocks 2.0, or to have an older version of Rocks working with Sitecore 8.2?

Design Layout shortcut on earlier version is working with (ctrl + U) (I think).
On latest version Design Layout with (ctrl + return) is not working, it just enter the item.
Hi Chaps, I'm using the query analyser to import items from a csv file
import csv file "c:\xxx\xxxx1.3.csv"
I was wondering if there is a way to create a branch template instead of a template, when I point to my branch template I get
Item "/sitecore/templates/Branches/xxx/xxxx" is not a template.
Is this just a case of the validation only checking the template type and not the branch template type or is it just not possible.
Sorry, no I do not think that is possible currently.
If you want, you could have a go at the code:
Whenever I try to preview an item by right-clicking and choosing "Tools -> Browse -> Preview" I get the following exception in th browser window:
CS0246: The type or namespace name `__ReSharperSynthetic' could not be found. Are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference? .
I am using version 22.214.171.124 and visual studio 2015
How can i get it work! thanks!
Our sitecore instance is configured to use HTTPS even in local work stations. Is there a way to originate the request from Sitecore rocks to be SSL or https? I could use the Good Old Web Service but I am not sure what features will I be missing if I use the Good Old Web Service over Hard Rock Web Service.
I get "The item was not found. It may have been deleted" error on some nodes in Sitecore explorer, though the children exist and are accessible in the Content Editor without any issues. I am using the latest 126.96.36.199 version.
I need more information than that.
- what user are you running as?
- which version of Sitecore are you running?
- are you running in a local env?
- is it specific items in a path?
- is it items with a specific template?
- are you using the Good Old Web Service or the Hard Rock Web Service?
Hi Jakob, I am having the same issue. I'm using the latest version Here's the info you asked for:
- what user are you running as? admin
- which version of Sitecore are you running? Sitecore 7.2 Rev 140288
- are you running in a local env? I get the error locally and on our QA server. I tried installing a fresh OOB instance of Sitecore (no customizations) and changing my connection strings to point to my databases, but that didn't resolve the issue.
- is it specific items in a path? yes, it happens on specific items
- is it items with a specific template? no
- are you using the Good Old Web Service or the Hard Rock Web Service? Hard Rock Web Service
I tried to look go to Navigate > Template Hierarchy (in rocks) to see i got the following Error: "Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. Value cannot be null. Parameter name: innerField."
I'm assuming one of the fields has a raw value that is of the wrong format. I wasn't sure which field caused that issue, so I resolved it by doing the following recreating the template of the Item causing the issue and changing its template to the newly created problem-free Template.
Perhaps Sitecore Rocks can give a more user-friendly error message. I held on to the original template that was causing the issue. I can share a package with you if that helps.
Thanks for your help!
