  • MVC progress report 12/15/2015
    MVC5 Progress: Getting there! Currently at 95% - at this point it's mostly find minor gaps in functionality or refactor layout to make the UI more natural. Time for TTE (Test Tweak Extend). At this point all the functionality has been stood up, it's just time to do the integration test to verify that all features work as expected and that something didn't get messed up with integration of subsequent features.

  • Running the ASP.NET 3.5 version on Server 2012 (or later) 1/20/2016
    As older servers are replaced, you may find yourself having difficulty getting the webforms edition to host properly with an ASP.NET 3.5/2.0 App Pool. Not to worry, with a few minor changes to the web.config, you can use the application in a .NET 4.0 app pool. First, go into your web server and create a new ASP.NET 4.0 App Pool . Assign this new app pool to the website you are trying to run. For best results, only share this app pool across other ASP.NET sites that were originally ASP.NET 3.5 applications. You'll need to modify some of the web.config entries, first comment out the sections noted below: <sectionGroup name="system.web.extensions" type="System.Web.Configuration.SystemWebExtensionsSectionGroup, System.Web.Extensions, Version=, Culture[.....]
  • MVC progress report 12/15/2015
    Currently about 85% has been ported, anything particularly critical has been ported (able to create and remove content, categories, tags, personalized templates, wire in widgets etc.) but some of the nicer but not critical functionality is still pending. GitHub | SourceForge | CodePlex
  • MVC version in progress! 9/23/2015
    So I've been doing razor + mvc5 for almost the last year, and that being the case, I'm starting the process of porting CarrotCakeCMS into MVC5. Here's the brainstorm I've had so far: Draft of MVC version can be found at and at . Note: this is a Visual Studio 2013 project/solution. Templates inherit a special razor web page which has the page data + widget info, it lazy loads the current page data into a named ViewData key so that sub components don't have to retrieve the page all over again. Some built in components emit both CSS and HTML. these can be set up to load the CSS through one method call and the body content as another, so the information can be plac[.....]
  • Farewell to Google Code 4/7/2015
    Due to Google retiring their code hosting (see Bidding farewell to Google Code ) the repository has been replicated to GitHub . In the meantime, the Google Code repository is still on-line. The code is still active on CodePlex and SourceForge .

  • Dealing with jQuery support (version 1.9 and later) 9/22/2015
    Problem: You built the code yourself using checkin code since July 2014. and some of your jQuery doesn't work quite right any more - you might be seeing script errors regarding "$.browser" (see ) Solution: Your jQuery plugin probably needs to be updated to be compatible with jQuery 1.9+ or use the migrate libraries or use an earlier version of jQuery . Add or edit the included jquerybasic tag to your template <carrot:jquerybasic runat="server" ID="jquerybasic1" UseJqueryMigrate="true" /> Setting UseJqueryMigrate="true" will include a current version of the jquery migration library. You could also specify an earlier version of jQuery such as version 1.7 <carrot:jquerybasic runat="server" ID="jquerybasic1" JQVersi[.....]
  • Always build in release mode 9/28/2014
    Make sure that if you are building the solution from code you compile in Release Mode. The assemblies provided in the download file are built in Release mode, but if you are building the solution yourself, there is potential that you are building in Debug mode. Debug is fine if you are trying stuff out and are still on a local non-production system, but if you have published your website to the public, you should be sure to build in Release mode before publishing. Not sure if your site was built in Release? Just view source and look for the meta tag for generator. If it says "DEBUG MODE" you should rebuild. <meta name="generator" content=" CarrotCake CMS #.#.####.##### DEBUG MODE " /> The version is also printed below the c3 admin logon box and footer[.....]

  • html/css templates 1/1/2016
    Note: that these templates are for the WebForms version of the CMS, the MVC version is still somewhat limited in example template selection and the only templates for it are found within the source code repositories at GitHub , SourceForge , and Microsoft CodePlex . Each of these zips should be extracted and the files placed directly under a folder within ~/cmsTemplates/ such as ~/cmsTemplates/{{zip_file_name}}/ . If they do not immediately show up in your template list, click the "refresh configs" button in the management dashboard. Also confirm that your files are at the root of the template folder and not in a sub folder. You should see files look something like ~/cmsTemplates/{#zip_file_name#}/Skin.config rather than ~/cmsTemplates/{#zip_file_name#}/{#z[.....]
