How to achieve COPE (Create Once, Publish Everywhere) in RISE ? or How to reuse content ?

We recently started building pages in RISE. I was looking for ways on how I can reuse content by embracing the COPE (Create Once, Publish Everywhere) philosophy. The key concept is separating the creation and storage of digital content from how it will be delivered or presented.

Does anyone have any ideas or best practices on how they are doing this in RISE. One very simple example is a testimonial. Say we want to create a testimonial at "one place" and display it on some "other pages" at "different areas" (rhs, lhs, footer...) of the page and maybe using "different styles".

Newbie iPart Development Questions

Hi all,

More newbie questions; just want to make sure I'm clear on the concepts:

Quote from some documentation: “Simple iParts are comprised of a single Web User Control. You insert simple iParts into Content Records by specifying the path of the ASCX when you’re adding content to a web part zone in the layout of the Content Record."
Question 1) In the training, I learned that even simple iParts were to go into a Content TYPE first, then you add the content type to the Content Record... is it ok to put everything into a Content Type first?

V20 add table in Sql dbase, not available in Additional Windows

For the life of me I cannot figure out what I am missing and I cannot find the documentation on how to use a new table. Previously I have only had to add new fields/columns to tables and done that through the desktop. this time I have a whole new table, I have added to the sql dbase. Created the BO use that new table. But when I try to create a new window in customer module setup it is telling me the table does not exist. How come BO creation can find the table but Additional Windows creation cannot?  Thinking I have missed something stupid.

iMIS 10.6 and Windows 7 mapped drives

Hello all.

I asked this once before and didn't get any response. So I will try again.

We are finally migrating the rest of our old XP machines to Windows 7. We are on iMIS 10.6. We are running in XP Compatibility mode and disabled Windows Composition, etc, and are installing on 32 bit. Everything works like a charm except custom reports. We are using the same drive mapping and configuration we used successfully in XP. When the user selects a custom report, they get an error that the report is not found. The drive is mapped, we can navigate to the drive, etc., but iMIS doesn't see it. If we fake an import or export via the utilities menu and manually navigate to the share via the dialog box, and then cancel the export, for example, the report runs successfully, and reports run successfully for the rest of the day, or until the machine is rebooted.

Recommendations for how create page from iParts?

Hi all,

I'm working on a page that will look something like the following; a couple of questions are embedded. I'd appreciate any "I'd approach it this way"s or other advice you may have for building this sucker with iParts.

The page allows selection of a survey that the Chapter has already started filling out, or allows clicking of a link for an already-started survey.

Upper left - Title of page, including Chapter name and name of upcoming event.

iBO where iMIS application server is secured with HTTPS

We need to secure the connection from our iMS application server to both the desktop and web applications (both the iMIS web client (i.e. RISE/WCM) and web pages where we use iMIS content via iBO and are not a part of WCM). I have it working perfectly with our desktop clients and also RISE/WCM. However, when I try to run a web form which uses iBO, the form blows up. Any idea whether https should work with iBO, or am I missing some configuration setting  in our web.config? (The forms work as expected under HTTP.)

Upgrade from V15 to V20

Has anyone upgraded to V15 to V20?

We tried the upgrade and pretty much none of the menu items or windows can over successfully.

Is this everyones experience or are we just special?

Does anyone know how we can increase teh size so that that HTML ipart will allow the upload of more then 2 documents?

A few newbie iPart questions

Hi all,

I’m doing a trivial Hello World iPart just to make sure I know all of the steps, and have a few questions which are probably pretty simple.

When setting up the iMIS Content Type, I’m not sure about this property:
“Name of the serializable class within the assembly that implements this content type”.
I found a comment somewhere:
“Enter the fully qualified class name of the class defined in the iPart Common class file”
