Using hidden input fields in Kentico

I've often found the need to re-use a form throughout a Kentico implementation in more than one place. The problem this gives me is that I don't necessarily know where that form was completed. Using a custom form control blended with alternative forms makes this easy.

Pimping the Kentico forms application

At Ridgeway, we’ve often thought is that there are a few places where the CMS desk could make our lives a little easier. One of the little things - those one percent improvements - is in the forms application. Depending on what you’re doing with your form, you may want to simply display some text to the user once they’ve filled in the form to say “thank you”. The option we get for this is a simple text box, so everything you want to say goes in here.

Building a blog in Kentico Cloud

With the release of Kentico Cloud, I felt like it was time for me to have a look around and see what I could achieve with Kentico's new headless CMS. My MVC is a little rusty too; this should be an entertaining challenge.

Selecting random pages in Kentico

Every once in a while, we all need to do something random, and sometimes it’s even related to work. Something we came across here at Ridgeway was a requirement to pick out random documents from a collection to display to the end user. We found a nice little trick to pull content at random from Kentico using a standard pages data source.

Kentico transformation method performance

Using data sources and viewers (think basic repeater and universal viewer) is a great way to get information on to your page. The inclusion of out-of-the-box transformation methods make formatting the information and displaying something useful to the end user a much simpler task. However, you must take care when using some out-of-the-box features that you are using the most performant method available.
