In this blog I will show you how to quickly store and retrieve data in your existing project using the Entity Framework. As example project I will use an existing EPiServer project.
Sometimes you want to able to save data that is not a page or a content block. Examples could be data like comments created by visitors or orders in your webshop. An easy way to save such data is using EPiServers build-in Dynamic Data Store.
Since a couple of weeks when I started with EPiServer I experimented a lot. Here is a quick summary of some code fragments that I found on the internet that can be very usefull in some cases. I am not going into detail about these code fragments because honestly I dont understand all of it (yet).
In this tutorial we will add Twitter Bootstrap to our EPiServer project and we will create some base classes and our first ViewModel. Further I will explain the purpose of these base classes and the need for a ViewModel. Most of this is standard ASP.NET MVC so if you are already familiar with that you can probably skip this post.
In my previous post about EPiServer I explained how to start a new EPiServer project. In this tutorial I will show you how to create page and block templates that can be used in EPiServer to create content. For now we keep it very basic.
Its actually quite simple now with the latest version of GitLab. There are only a few pitfalls that you have to think of getting it working. Lets start right now!
Welcome to my first blog where I will start explaining how to create a simple website that uses EPiServer 7.5 as CMS. In the next tutorials I will extend the functionality of the website and I will dive deeper in more advance topics related to EPiServer. I assume that you have basic knowledge about the CMS itself. In other words that you know how to work with the CMS itself.
