Been one of those rather frustrating weeks - mostly caused by language issues...

Apparently under most reasonable settings #Sitecore likes to look for #Language variants at the beginning of your URLs (i.e. /en/SomePath/ and /de-de/DasBoot/ etc.) this usually works fine - unless for some reason you want a path like "/my/email-preferences/" (because you're setting up a user profile area) and your machine (thanks Windows 8) appears to have knowledge of the Burmese language.

Sitecore therefore keeps setting the language to "my" and then trying to find "email-preferences" in the root of the site and returning a nice blank page (because strangely I don't have a Burmese version of my UK investment bank's website).

I'll probably have to move this to some variant of www.example.com/my-example/email-preferences to attempt to not fall into this.

Alternatively (as a temporary fix - we're bound to reach out to Burma soon) I could override the StripLanguage preprocessor and only return matches for languages that have been configured in Sitecore...

So I finally admitted defeat on running the PI headless and bought a 7" Lilliput HDMI screen. Works a treat with #osmc

Eeee! Just earned the Silver C# badge on #StackOverflow  - always proud of the language specific badges :)

What should have been a trivial job - restrict access to some PDFs in Sitecore's Media Library - turned out to be a little more involved when I wanted to return the user straight back to the PDF after they'd logged in...
 
Trying to get back into the swing of things - here's a quick post on restricting access to Sitecore Media Items in such a way that when the user is sent to the login page they are returned to the resource they wanted when they successfully log in.

Finally got around to doing something with my Raspberry Pi - which took a while - and I'm fairly happy with it: Running a headless OSMC instance plugged into the stereo.

Steps recorded for posterity and for when updates come out... #raspberypi   #osmc
