Sitecore has a button on the developer tab that allows you to re-index just a portion of the content tree. This can be handy to avoid a full index rebuild when you have a large content tree or if you are debugging custom indexing funtionality likc computed fields.

I just happened to have written a Sitecore PowerShell Extenstions context menu script to do this recently. Continue reading
In this post we will wrap up the Forgot Password functionality that we have been working on by adding a bit of personalization to our Forgot Password page that will show a different form if the user has successfully verified their email address. Continue reading

Now that we have a restricted extranet page, we need to be able to create users who can access it. Continue reading
