We have release the SEO-friendly URL module that we use in all our Sitecore projects. This blog post explains how it works and how you can use it in your own projects.

Today was an important day for all Sitecore enthusiasts; the long awaited Sitecore 7 was released to the public! I was lucky enough to get an early peek at this release, as did all other MVP’s, and therefore new beforehand that this one would be well worth the waiting. It comes with an exciting new – super fast – search API along with UI changes that enable content editors to use the search features for content management (or should I call it customer engagement these days?)

Yesterday, all European MVP's got the chance to meet with part of the Sitecore 7 development team at Sitecore's UK office in London for an in-depth insight in Sitecore’s new search features. It was a fantastic session that went really deep into the mechanics of the search and we were left with a brain full of new information and almost no questions to ask.

Here is yet another addition to our ever growing arsenal of Sitecore modules! As with all our modules, I wrote it because I ran into a shortcoming of the Content Editor while working on our own website: All our pages have a few inherited fields that are used to store Meta Data content such as the Browser Title and Meta Description fields, for example. The length of the values of those fields should be kept within a certain limit for SEO purposes. Google will only display the first 69 characters of the browser title and no more than 156 characters of the meta description.

I created a very simple module that adds a command to the Content Editor that allows the user to open any item from the content tree in a new browser window (or tab).
