Image optimization is an important aspect of ensuring good performance on your site. Often, images are uploaded without optimization in mind, which can cause large traffic loads to heavily impact performance and load times. An edge cache can be used to prevent the round trip call to the server, mitigating some of the impacts, but that may not adjust and optimize the actual size of the image being delivered. There are several tool out there that will optimize images by reducing the overall file size of those images. In my case, I decided to go with Dianoga, an automatic image optimizer that executes the first time an image is requested. It's a great choice, but unfortunately does not work for Azure App Services. This was an easy enough thing to resolve. Read on to find out how.

When using the coveo search box and setting it up in the presentation settings on a sitecore item, you will need to specify the target search result item using the field "search page item" (as shown below), so that the results are rendered on that page.

Sitecore 9 Forms is a powerful upgrade from WFFM. It provides a simple interface that allows the user to easily create forms on demand, and collect information from their visitors. For longer forms, the creation process can be a bit tedious and repetitive. This prompted me to leverage Sitecore PowerShell to create a script that will parse a JSON file and generate a form. Now the repetitive stuff can be managed via copy/paste. All of the scripts and an installation package can be found over at GitHub: Sitecore - Json To Forms. Continue reading to learn more about the thought process that brought these scripts to life.
I have been using coveo for sitecore, well before its JSUI days, when they just had the .NET interface. Indeed coveo has come a long way since then. We all know how coveo for sitecore makes it easy for searching both for sitecore based items and also external sources. Today, I am going to talk about how to search for results based on a given "location" and "distance" from that location. Not only that, we will also show the gogle map with markers showing those searched locations, corresponding to results.
