One of the most requested features for our Sitecore implementations is URL rewriting; the ability to permanently redirect a requested URL to a different URL. We have built this functionality some time ago and recently decided to release it as a stand-alone module so that everyone can use it in their own Sitecore solution. This blog post describes what the module does and how to use it.

The Sitecore Content Editor offers you commands to copy and paste items. But what if you don't want to copy an entire item, but just one version? Sitecore doesn't offer a solution for this out of the box.
Our Copy Version module adds a new version of the Copy, Paste and Copy To command that allow you to copy the latest version of an item to another item. Pasting the version to an item will create a new version with a copy of the original version.

In ASP.NET applications you can catch all application exceptions in the Application_Error event handler in the global.asax. When you use Sitecore MVC, this event is not fired by default. It took me a while to figure out why this is, so I decided to write a short blog post about it.

A common requirement for many Sitecore solutions is applying caching to certain areas of the application.
For example, on a service manager, an abstraction layer inbetween external services and the web application.
This blog post describes an example of an implementation of a caching layer that is reusable and does not require the existing logic to be modified.
It works by adding an attribute to the method that needs to be cached, marking it as cacheable.
