Experience Edge Can’t Resolve Site

I’m gonna start this off with the whole “I’m not an expert…” deal. Because frankly, I’m not an expert when it comes to Experience Edge. It’s relatively new. And I am too. Glad we got that part out of the way. So what’s the deal? Well, we were working on a new site and for…


Storybook Stories Gotcha when Upgrading to JSS 21.2.1

We recently had to upgrade our solution to JSS 21.2.1 to fix a pesky NextJS Hydration issue. It was a little tedious, but once we spun up a new empty instance and compared our code, it was easy to spot the differences. One thing that changed rather drastically was the 404 page. This seems like…


Error: Cannot find module ‘./src/temp/config’ when running Storybook 7

Our development process with Next or JSS includes working with Storybook. First off, it’s pretty slick to be able to see all the components in one place, even outside Sitecore. Second, those fun mac folks aren’t going to be spinning up Windows containers in the near future, and they need to be able to see…


Roll Your own Translation Module with ChatGPT and Sitecore PowerShell Extensions

My dad always told me, “Be the change you want to see in the world” and “Stop leaving the door open, we’re not paying to cool the entire neighborhood.” Now, I can’t advise you on your electric bill, but I can share a little bit on how I stepped into a proof of concept for…


Experience Analytics and Experience Profile Won’t Load

I’ll lead this whole thing off with “Sometimes Rob sucks at reading documentation.” Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about what’s been causing some heartburn. Here’s what we were seeing when we went into Experience Profile: And here’s what we see when we look at Experience Analytics: For SEO, I’m…


Using Solr Standalone for your Local

Sometimes I’m a smart guy. Then there’s other times. I’ll let you be the judge of which time that is. I’ve been doing docker for my local environment for a while. Enough to simplify the process and find something that works for me and for the dev team here. One of my devs, however has…


Windows Hosts Writer v 2.0

It’s been quite a while since WHW has received an update. Michael West (yes, that Michael West) has been gracious enough to get things up to speed with the latest version of dotnet core, docker, and even made a few enhancements. I’m not going to regurgitate it here, as you can read about all the…


Docker and Firefox – Fix OOTB HTTP Redirect

I’m a Firefox guy. It’s ok. I’m good with it. I like Firefox. It has some quirks. Some of those quirks are actually some security practices. One of them…I’ll share today. Ok, so I’ve been doing some docker-ing. Wanting to create some specific pre-built images/accelerator type things on my own, I started off with a…


Experience Profile: XdbSearchUnavailableException

Our team was standing up a new instance of Sitecore XP1 10.1 and noticed that anytime you loaded Experience Profile, you got a nice error about “An error has occurred”. Digging into the XHR posts, there’s a big fat 500 response from the Contact Search API: Exception calling GetService() – Service Type: “ContactsController” System.InvalidOperationException: Unable…


Windows Hosts Writer – v 1.4

Edit: This has been updated to reflect that v2.0 has been released! View here. There’s a fun bug in windows having to deal with the number of hostnames per line in your hosts file. Any hostnames after the first nine just won’t resolve. That’s fun. Right? I’ve made some updates to the WHW image that…
