MVC Routing operates on the basis that a request is handled by Controllers and Actions in predefined routes. Dynamic Routing is where a request maps to a Page (TreeNode), and that Page's settings (Template, Page Type) determines how the request should be handled (which Controller/Action/View). In Portal Engine, the Url matched the NodeAliasPath or Url Aliases of a page, and the Page's Template then determined how it was handled. In this article we will outline how to restore the Portal Engine request handling now that the Kentico 12Service Pack is out.

One of the things I’m known in the Kentico community is my desire to build useful tools for developers, so they can leverage Kentico’s features to a greater degree of ease and scope.  In this article I'll demonstrate a new Module I've created to allow you to more easily create and manage relationships within Kentico.

The future is coming, and those who don't adapt often are left in the dust.  Being future-minded in your development of websites can mean the difference between being able to leverage new technologies and trends, or being faced with a total rebuild, which no one wants.
In this article, I’m going to go over some great principles for structuring your content and relationships to make sure it's ready for whatever gets thrown at it.

In any Site or Entity, there are Many-to-One or Many-to-Many relationships.  Whether it be something as simple as “Multiple Banners to display on this page” to the more complex relationships that are needed to do custom ups (such as “Multiple states this dealer serves”).  The tricky part is, there are multiple ways to handle multiple relationships in Kentico, each with pros and cons.  By the end of this article however, you should be able to know which is the best thing for the situation!

Many are familiar with the phrase “Death by a thousand cuts.”  It carries with it the idea that you can do a lot of damage with a sum of seemingly minor things.  This isn’t going to be a tutorial, but more of a warning with other developers on the dangers of taking shortcuts, and breaking Kentico with your code.

Tools tools tools, everyone loves tools!  Tools help you build stuff, do stuff, and better tools mean you can do more with less time and less hassle.  Well, I finally got around to publishing some new tools for you to help you develop your sites.  In this article, I’m going to go through the new tools, explaining my thought processes behind them, along with some great application examples.

When creating Custom Modules, sometimes you want to give access to some classes but not others.  Kentico documentation covers how to set a general Read and Modify class for the entire module, this article will show you how to set them at individual class levels!

A large majority of building a website is taking something (or a list of somethings) and displaying that on the website in a certain way.  Whether it be menus, products, events, news, banners, carousels, whatever, the repetition and styling of objects is pretty much the core of a website.

This article dives into Kentico's Repeaters/Transformations, how they work, and how you can leverage them.

When making transformations, you have a handful of options, and the two primary are ASCX and Text/XML.  Using .Net controls or the K# Macro engine.  After many years working in both, here's my thoughts on the pros, cons, and what i would recommend!
