Note worthy mojoPortal Multiple Site config entiries

Since I have been messing with the multiple site functionality per instance of mojoPortal lately I have been doing more research and have found out more information about options that are available dealing with multiple sites. First couple are pretty simple, but would be nice depending upon how may sites you have pointing to one instance of mojoPortal. <add key="SiteListPageSize" value="10" /> - Allows you to change the amount of Sites listed in the Site list page <add...

Multiple sites on one instance of mojoPortal with Arvixe Shared hosting

As I am still relatively new to mojoPortal as well as Arvixe hosting I am still learning lots. As I would eventually like to host a number of web sites using mojoPortal I recently decided to start playing with the option of hosting multiple sites with one installation. On the mojoPortal site there is lots of great documentation about the different solutions that mojoPortal will accommodate to be able to host multiple sites via one instance. It is definitely a good read before attempting to... Read More

How Google Tests Software

I recently attended a Webinar entitled "How Google Tests Software" that was presented by James Whittaker a Test Director at Google. It generally was a big plug for the new bookwith the same name that James and a few other authors have written. Even with it being a plug for the book I found he provided a lot of great philosophies if nothing else. A couple of comments that I found to be memorable are: The line between development engineer and test engineer is getting thinner and thinner. Test... Read More

Media Player to be integrated in mojoPortal core

Ever since I released my initial version of Media Player I have been working with Joe Audette (creator of mojoPortal) as he wanted to implement it as a core feature. Just today he posted on the mojoPortal Blog that the next version of mojoPortal will include the Media Player feature. Joe has done some very nice work to add some great enhancements (html header/footer content, custom CSS class, dividing the Player into an Audio Player and Video Player feature) as well as created the support for...

mojoPortal - SiteMenu Lost Layout

The other day while I was doing some development of a custom feature for mojoPortal all of a sudden the main menu (portal:SiteMenu tag on the layout.Master) lost all of its layout. Instead of the menu layout styling that it had previously it now was just a standard <ul> will bullets, but positioned horizontally. I thought I might have messed something up with the skin I was using at the time, but I found that I still had the same issue when switching to any other skin I tried. After a... Read More

Organize Your SoapUI Project

I have seen SoapUI projects organized in many different ways from one Project per test scenario to one project per service binding to one project for a whole application. Here I will describe to you what I have found to be the best approach and explain why I feel it is the best approach. I also understand that everyone tends to work better with different organization structures, so I am just providing these details to maybe provide a SoapUI newbie with details that will make getting started...

jPlayer CSS Clash Solution

I have been working on creating a Custom feature for mojoPortal that utilizes jPlayer version 2.1.0 to play audio. During that development I encountered an issue where as part of the mojoPortal base install they have a CSS stylesheet that included styles for the jPlayer classes. They were styles of a skin for jPlayer version 2.0.0. With my player instance trying to utilize the same CSS classes they were clashing with each other as the versions utilize the same classes in different ways. It... Read More

Dynamically Adding Content to Page Header in ASP.NET

I recently have started working with jQuery and other add-ons that require including files as well as writing on pages within the <HEAD> section of the page. Also, I am coding some features for use within the mojoPortal CMS, so for many reasons it is not reasonable to add the <SCRIPT> blocks to every page of the website. So I needed a way to be able to dynamically add content to the Page Header. Below is the answer of how to accomplish this with a few extra notes that should make ... Read More

Ready to Blog about SoapUI

I have been wanting to write about using SoapUI for a long time. So, I could write lots and lots about it all in one post, but I will divide it up into smaller topics and multiple posts. A summary of SoapUI for folks who may not be familiar with it may be in order. Rather than trying to explain it myself, I will let SmartBear, the maker of SoapUI, explain it, just click here. I have been using SoapUI for over 2 years now back when the latest released version was 3.3.1. I work for a... Read More

App_GlobalResources with Visual Web Developer 2010 Express

I have recently started working with the mojoPortal Content Management System (CMS). It is an open source project built with the ASP.NET technology. Most professional developers would pay to use the full blown Microsoft Visual Studio to do there development, but the rest of us hobby developers generally prefer to use the free Visual Web Developer (VWD) Express edition (currently the latest is 2010 and it is the version I am using). as you might guess there tend to be differences in how they...
