Geta.Optimizely.Extensions

The old package Geta.EPi.Extensions has been renamed to Geta.Optimizely.Extensions. Install it using Nuget package manager or from the command line:

Install-Package Geta.Optimizely.Extensions

The package has almost the same functionality as the previous version. The only change is that we have removed XForms related functionality as it is not supported in Optimizely 12 anymore.

For more information check the Github page.

Sitemaps and Sitemaps.Commerce

The old packages Geta.SEO.Sitemaps and Geta.SEO.Sitemaps.Commerce has been renamed to Geta.Optimizely.Sitemaps and Geta.Optimizely.Sitemaps.Commerce. Install those using Nuget package manager or from the command line:

Install-Package Geta.Optimizely.Sitemaps
Install-Package Geta.Optimizely.Sitemaps.Commerce

After installation, you have to configure it. Register the Sitemaps and/or Sitemaps Commerce in the service collection first:

services.AddSitemaps(x =>
{
  x.EnableLanguageDropDownInAdmin = false;
  x.EnableRealtimeCaching = true;
  x.EnableRealtimeSitemap = false;
});
services.AddSitemapsCommerce();

Then make sure that you have razor pages mapped:

app.UseEndpoints(endpoints =>
{
    endpoints.MapRazorPages();
});

After that, you will see a new top menu item for the Sitemaps in the Optimizely administration UI. There is a new administration user interface, but it has the same functionality as the old one.

For more information check the Github page.

Geta.Optimizely.GoogleProductFeed

The package Geta.GoogleProductFeed has been renamed to Geta.Optimizely.GoogleProductFeed so that all the naming is consistent with other Optimizely packages. Install it using Nuget package manager or from the command line:

Install-Package Geta.Optimizely.GoogleProductFeed

After installation, you have to configure it. Register the GoogleProductFeed in the service collection first:

services.AddGoogleProductFeed(x =>
{
    x.ConnectionString = _configuration.GetConnectionString("EPiServerDB");
});

Then you have to create your FeedBuilder. See the documentation.

Once, it is created register it in the service collection:

services.AddTransient<FeedBuilder, MyFeedBuilder>();

For more information check the Github page.

Geta.Optimizely.ContentTypeIcons

We had a package Geta.Epi.FontThumbnail for the older Episerver/Optimizely versions. The package name did not describe what it was. So we renamed it to Geta.Optimizely.ContentTypeIcons. Install it using Nuget package manager or from the command line:

Install-Package Geta.Optimizely.ContentTypeIcons

After installation, you have to configure it. Register the ContentTypeIcons in the service collection first:

services.AddContentTypeIcons(x =>
{
    x.EnableTreeIcons = true;
    x.ForegroundColor = "#ffffff";
    x.BackgroundColor = "#02423F";
    x.FontSize = 40;
    x.CachePath = "[appDataPath]\\thumb_cache\\";
    x.CustomFontPath = "[appDataPath]\\fonts\\";
});

Now you can start using it by adding the ContentTypeIcon attribute to your content types. For example:

[ContentTypeIcon(FontAwesome5Brands.Github)]

This attribute on a page type will show you a Github icon when you will create a new page of this page type. Also, if you have the EnableTreeIcons setting enabled, you will see the icon in the content tree.

You can also use the TreeIcon attribute to override the behavior for the content tree. You can set a different icon or ignore the icon completely:

[TreeIcon(Ignore = true)]
[TreeIcon(FontAwesome5Solid.CheckDouble)]
