PeopleDynamicweb has an open, friendly and fast growing community. It's always great to share ideas with other people who uses the system as well as to learn from them. Below you'll find a list of some of the people who has put a huge effort in making Dynamicweb community really special.
Imar Spaanjaars owns De Vier Koeden, is a technical director of Dynamicweb North America and also a Microsoft MVP (since 2008).
With his unique experience in working with (as well as developing for) Dynamicweb & eCommerce he helps people with their day-to-day work with the system. He has tons of useful articles available on his web-page. He is also the main author of the upcoming book about Dynamicweb eCommerce. It's hard to overestimate the value he brings into the community.
This article shows you how to expose Dynamicweb data as JSON or XML so it can be consumed by client side code.
Did you ever wish that that installing Dynamicweb on your development box was easier and quicker? It is now!
Back in 2011, I blogged about Dynamicweb's support for If statements. This is a great feature that makes your templates much easier to write and maintain. However, people still wanted more and asked for support of the @Else tag. I recently discvovered that Dynamicweb 8.2 now supports this. The template engine now also enables you to use && (and)and || (or) in your expressions. These new features have been announced and documented as silently as the initial support for the @If tags, so I decided to write a little blog post to make you aware of these new possibilities and show you they work.
In earlier versions of Dynamicweb you custom modules could benefit from SEO friendly URLs using the "Convert Module URLs" option in the Customized URLs Configuration Panel. While this worked well for quick and dirty scenarios, you had no control over the way the URL was built. In addition, the URL used funky characters such as [ and ] to separate query string values. And finally, the URL still contained the ID and other data your module needed in order to do its work.
With the introduction of the URL Providers, these disadvantages have now all been solved.
Here's a quick code example that shows you how to modify the ID of an order in the database after the order has been completed. This can be useful if you need to modify the ID to include the language for example. Note that this code executed when the order has been marked as complete. If you need to do this earlier, you can also override the method OnBeforeRenderStep5 of your Gateway Provider. For more information, check out this thread on the Engage forum.
