Re: Running eZ Publish Legacy on eZ Platform Cloud

Quote from Roland Benedetti :

Same here, great block post, very useful!

Small comment to rebound on Robin's one: you didn't run eZ Publish on eZPlatform Cloud, you ran eZ Publish on Platform.sh.

eZ Platform Cloud is also based on platform.sh, so it's very similar indeed but eZ Platform Cloud doesn't designate the PaaS service in itself.

eZ Platform Cloud will also support deployment to Enterprise level of Platform.sh, any chance you tried it with eZ Publish?

Cheers,

Roland

Ps: I didn't comment on your blog itself because the only way I figured to comment was to use facebook, which I do not.

Roland, thanks for your feedback!

Sorry, we thought eZ Cloud is some custom set of eZ Installation configurations on platform.sh. Seems like we misunderstood it. And we had no chance to try it in action yet. We are going to make a slight edits in this blog post to avoid any further confusion.

PS: implementing non facebook comments on our blog sounds like a perfect internal project. Thank you one more time!

Date field: Timezone difference between legacy backend and ezplatform frontend

Hi,

i'm using ezplatform 1.7 with legacy bridge and the legacy backend. When a date field is set in the legacy backend, e.g. 2017/07/13, ez_render_fields outputs "2017/07/12" in frontend.

When using a datetime field, the time difference is 2 hours.

A dump of ez_field_value outputs the following:

Value {#12603+date: DateTime {#12605+"date": "2017-07-13 00:00:00.000000"+"timezone_type": 1+"timezone": "+00:00"}+stringFormat: "l d F Y"}

php.ini timezone is set to "Europe/Berlin", legacy site.ini timezone is set to "Europe/Berlin" too.

Thanks for your help :)

The Week in Review: Why Choose eZ Platform, Community Board News and More

News

Personalization Does Not Have to Be that Complex!

Personalization may carry the reputation of being complex and hard to implement. But in this blog post, Roland Benedetti, Chief Product & Marketing Officer at eZ shows us how easy it can be to implement personalized home pages that cater to different audiences on eZ Platform, all relying on a simple taxonomy of your visitors and the ability for them to define their own preferences. Here's his explanation.

7 reasons to choose eZ Publish / eZ Platform if content is key to your business

When content is key to your business, and you are looking to choose a content management system, you'll want to choose a platform that makes dealing with lots of content-and leveraging it throughout your site and across other channels-easy and intuitive.

Lisa Manfield from Mugo Web looks at 7 reasons why you should choose eZ Publish or eZ Platform. Some of these reasons include: extensive core functionality, extensibility, content structure and partner ecosystem. Read the full article over at Mugo Web.

Community Board updates

If you keep an eye on the Community Board meeting minutes, you know we are working on improving our community platform. This community platform consists of sites such as share.ez.no, ezplatform.com and social channels such as Slack.

This week we introduced eZ Tags on ezplatform.com. A small improvement, which will make it easier for our Community to find and read relevant news about eZ Platform. Next up on our agenda is to make a decision on implementing a new forum, and further improvements on ezplatform.com such as extending features on the Bundle List.

Personalization Does Not Have to Be that Complex!

Catering to different populations:creating relevance and interest

This applies well when you have a set of different populations coming to your digital property and you can clearly envision creating different content for them, or better yet, for which you already have different content at hand to use.

Examples:

These are simple segmentation examples that are not complicated on the content production side, so they're easy when it comes to delivering targeted home and landing pages. They're simple and can deliver significant performance improvements to front page conversions.

For the sake of this example, let's take our fake food and travel online magazine, Tasteful Planet. By knowing our audience, we clearly recognized that they were not all equally interested in our content, we've been able to consider different profiles:

We can easily curate content to those different visitors without a big overhead-we already have the content so editorially it won't be a burden. Let's look at how we would do that with eZ Platform Enterprise Edition and Studio.

Use tags and taxonomy to categorize and segment your user base

In order to segment our contact database, we simply add a new field definition to our user profiles to allow the tagging of users using the Tags bundle. Technically it's very simple: install the Tags bundle (we ship eZ Tags bundle with our eZ Platform Enterprise Demo installation). Add a Tag field definition to the user content type. And voilà, you have the basic engine that will let you categorize your visitors' interests.

User Preference Field View

User Preference Field

Explicit personalization: let users speak for themselves

You could attempt to guess on behalf of your users by watching and tracking them, or collecting data from different sources. But this is not always easy to do, as it requires some data integration and can also raise some privacy concerns.

While guessing is one option, there is a simpler and sometimes more effective technique to use when you deal with authenticated users: ask them what they want. This way you can store their preferences and inform them about how their personal data will be used.

That's what we'll do in our fake food and travel magazine. We'll ask users, for instance right after they login, to tell us which topics they relate to the most. And we'll be clear in telling users about our purpose in collecting this information. This is what experts call "privacy by design", it will ensure you comply with personal data regulations such as the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

explicite personalisation

explicite user choices

Curate your segments to maximize the power of your pages

With the setup mentioned above, you'll quickly build knowledge about your users' preferences that you can then leverage when managing your different landing pages, while letting your editors choose different content for your segmented audiences.

In our food and travel magazine example, we used a profiling block in the Studio landing page editor. This profiling block lets you choose different variations of content for a specific placeholder in your landing page.

Placing a user profiling block

The editor will define which content to display to different segments and also define a fallback content-the one to display to users not matching any of your segments.

The editor will also define prioritization-which segment should win when a user belongs to two segments (in our example, segments are not exclusive).

profiling setup

profiling setup

Once it's published it's all done, we have just implemented a simple personalization scenario.

The four variations of the page for the four targeted visitor segments

Simple yet very effective!

Nothing above must feel very exciting to the ones who are exploring bleeding edge new tech. You'll notice I didn't use big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning or any other super trendy buzzword. We don't need them! Still this might be one of your best chances to generate quick value from personalization technology and to get started with a first level of delivering personalized experiences.

Personalization can be overwhelming and is a challenge if you want to go for the full menu. It's often mentioned as "the phase 2 of CMS projects that never starts." Starting with simple techniques such as the above examples can help you deliver value, mature your plans and eventually get ready to jump on more ambitious projects relying on more implicit rules, sophisticated intelligence, data sources and with a scope going way beyond the web page.

I hope to have demonstrated that some very simple personalization techniques can be used without challenging much of your organization, and they can be simple to apply using a CMS such as eZ Platform.

Here are a few more resources on personalization you might find useful:

If you are interested in exploring more about personalization or using it for your own website, please reach out to our team, we'd be delighted to provide a demo and explore your needs.

Re: Missing Backend CSS

I did notice that in my admin console, under Setup -> Extensions, that ezjscore was not checked. So I checked the box and clicked update. Then I cleared my content view cache and all the javascript and css loaded. Thanks!

16 Jun 2017 1:06am GMT

Re: Missing Backend CSS

Thanks for getting back to me Peter.

This was not a cluster setup as far as I know.

I have confirmed that the /var//cache/public folder does not exist. And it was not included in the backup that the hosting provider gave to me. I have created that directory and made sure that the web server has write permissions but none of the CSS or JS are being created in there. Is there a way for me to trigger the creation?

Recapping eZ Conference 2017 London

Developer Training Day

The first day, June 6, was a full day of training for developers in both basic and advanced levels. And in the afternoon the by-invitation only Product Innovation Board met to discuss the future of editorial experiences on eZ Platform.

eZ Conference Day 1

June 7 kicked off eZ Conference. In the morning we held a Partner meeting and lunch, where eZ partners heard about the latest developments in partner relations.

Aleksander Farstad, eZ's CEO and Co-Founder initiated the conference in the afternoon with a keynote around digital transformation and the role of content. He invited Roland Benedetti, head of product to share the latest product news and roadmap. The highlights were a status update on project v2, which is currently in alpha and includes the revamp of eZ Platform UI that will provide lightning fast editorial experience and much needed customization and extensibility capabilities based on the Symfony framework which will reach version 3. Roland also announced the launch of eZ Platform Cloud, an integrated Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering of eZ Platform built together with eZ's partner Platform.sh. Following Aleksander and Roland's talk were simultaneous Business and Technical Track sessions. The highlights of the day were two packed sessions in the Technical Track that gave an introduction to the forthcoming eZ Platform v2. Damien Pobel, eZ's Lead Engineer for User Interface talked about eZ Platform UI 2.x, and a joint presentation from André Rømcke, eZ's VP Engineering and Bertrand Dunogier, eZ's Lead Engineer for eZ Platform revealed what developers can expect next for eZ Platform 2.x and Symfony 3.

Day one was also where the big festivities happened. After speaking sessions ended, everyone gathered outside by the Tower of London for a barbecue. The London weather was as expected-rainy and windy, but it didn't stop us from enjoying the start of a great evening. Once back inside, we kicked off the eZ Awards ceremony lasting until 2am with a live band and open bar. eZ crew announced and welcomed winners on stage to hand them their eZ trophies.

June 8 was a full day of Business and Technical Track sessions, including morning keynotes from digital customer experience expert, Gerry McGovern in his memorable presentation "Building a Customer-centric Organization" and an afternoon keynote from Richard Jones, technical director at Inviqa about "Content in 7 Dimensions."

eZ Dev Bar

New this year: throughout days one and two we had the eZ Dev Bar-a section in the main conference area where developers could hang out, sit on blow-up chairs and play with eZ Platform v2. An eZ engineer or eZ Platform expert was always around to answer questions or give demos.

Hackathon

The more tenacious developers within the eZ community kept the pace high and joined forces in our hackathon on Friday morning, hosted by and at the Inviqa office. This was the first edition of a hackathon at the eZ Conference and was a soft test. It was very positive though it gathered a smaller share of developers attending the conference. Congrats to Sebastien Morel and Frank Dege who made good progress with their work on respective projects eZ Launchpad and Silver Shop.

Announcements: eZ London Office & eZ Platform Cloud

eZ Conference was also an opportune time to announce a new eZ office to open in London in the next few months plus, as mentioned above a new product release: eZ Platform Cloud, a new cloud hosting solution providing eZ Platform as a Platform as a Service (PaaS).

eZ Platform Cloud, which will be officially launched in the next few weeks (be one of the firsts to try it out), is powered by Platform.sh, a tech company specializing in PaaS solutions. Platform.sh has been our technology partner and now we've gone further and built a PaaS solution that is fully integrated with eZ Platform, speeding up development projects while increasing team productivity and freeing up time.

eZ Conference remains an event with the goal of bringing the eZ community together to match faces to names and learn about developments in eZ's software, all while enjoying a great venue location and plenty of networking.

Re: Missing Backend CSS

The back-end uses the "ezjscore" extension to place CSS and JS in the var//cache/public folder. Have you checked that the folder exists and is writable by the web server?

If you're using a cluster setup, this could also be due to incorrect references in the cluster table.

Missing Backend CSS

Hello,

I am attempting to migrate our ezpublish websites from one hosting provider to being hosted in house. The hosting provider gave me a sanitized backup of the web root as well as the apache virtualhost files and a sql backup. I have everything working except my backend. When I try to load it I get the login page but no css or javascript has been applied. I can successfully log in to manage my websites but again no css or js. I am using ezpublish 5.4.4. I have checked all of my error logs and I cannot find any errors. I have compaired to my existing site that is in production still and it pulls a css file that doesn't exist in my new server. Are the css files for the backend autogenerated somehow?

I have flushed my cache using php console and I have done assetic dumps as well. I have even tried starting over, going through the initial setup. Using a new database. To the same result. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: pregenerate image alias on object publishing

To add a bit of detail to the snipppet that Peter posted: that code will not work if the file with the image variation is not on disk any more, but the content object attribute has stored in the database the fact that it is there (inside the attribute value) - in that case the image will not be regenerated.

Clearing the image variation cache will not help, either.

The only way to fix the problem is to do a purge of the image variation cache.

We Are Launching eZ Platform Cloud, Speeding Up Development of Your Projects

eZ Platform Cloud is a new cloud solution providing eZ Platform in a Platform as a Service (PaaS) flavor (read here if you are curious about the difference between PaaS and IaaS). eZ Platform Cloud provides the software, but also the hosting infrastructure and the underlying software stack (web servers and databases). More than that, it provides the tooling that enables a very agile and fast deployment process from development to production without forgetting the different testing and acceptance phases.

eZ Platform Cloud PaaS capabilities provide a lot of value compared to the old traditional approach to web development. First and foremost, it's an accelerator. Your team doesn't have to setup the development, staging and production environments. It's ready to use, high availability and ready to scale as much as you need, so that you save on setup time. But beyond the setup, it's also an accelerator because all operations from development to deployment to production are taken care of, relying on Git, and you can very quickly iterate on development.

In addition to the benefit of saving time, it's a solution that will help increase productivity and reduce costs as well as risks, mostly because you won't have to deal with the infrastructure yourself, which means you won't have to invest in software, hardware and teams to manage it. The cost of eZ Platform Cloud will be significantly lower than the hard cost you have when taking care of the infrastructure yourself.

Last but not least, eZ Platform Cloud will simplify your operations as you will have to deal with one single support team, one single vendor and one single contract for the entire solution.

eZ Platform Cloud is a new product, but you should not be hesitant while thinking it's immature. eZ Platform Cloud is powered by Platform.sh, a tech company specializing in PaaS solutions. For the past year eZ has teamed up Platform.sh as a technology partner. But we decided to go beyond our previous partnership and build our Cloud product together with Platform.sh in a fully integrated way-as one single offering. We took this approach as we believe Platform.sh is the best to deliver this solution. Their experience and knowledge of our application stack is proven as they are the official cloud provider for companies such as Sensiolabs (creators of the Symfony framework) and Magento.

We are launching this week eZ Platform Cloud on a preview basis, fine tuning the solution based feedback from the first users. You can contact us if you are interested in being a first user and launching a project with eZ Platform Cloud Our team will be here to guide you. We will follow this preview phase with an official public launch soon where all the details on the different packages available for eZ Platform Cloud will be shared.

We are all very excited by this new cloud product which can help us accelerate the development of projects. Please don't hesitate to comment here or to contact us if you have any question.

The Week in Review: New Home for eZ Platform Bundles, Conference Updates and More

News

Find the bundle you need for your eZ Platform website

Until recently projects.ez.no was the place to share your eZ Publish extension as a developer. Because this was the only place to share extensions for eZ Publish at the time, eZ Community members also used it for sharing eZ Publish 5 and eZ Platform bundles. But projects.ez.no was not built to submit new Symfony bundles.

Now, with eZ Platform v1.x and ezplatform.com, we decided to draw a line between eZ Publish (also known as legacy) and eZ Platform and officially announce: everything related to eZ Platform will be on ezplatform.com.

The first major improvement on ezplatform.com is now live! A list of Bundles, contributed by our Community. Read the full blog by Sylvain Guittard, Senior Product Manager. It also lists some upcoming features such as design improvements, and bundle search with SolrBundle.

eZ Conference updates

More updates this week on eZ Conference. eZ's Product Innovation Board is a by-invitation only event that meets every year to provide feedback and input on the road ahead for eZ software. This year we're excited to have the Board meet at eZ Conference on Tuesday, June 6. Read the full announcement here.

If you have visited or read about our conference, you know we honour our community members and partners through the eZ Awards Ceremony. The 2017 eZ Award finalists were announced this week. It will be exciting to see who will take an award back home.

Interview with Richard Jones: Content in 7 Dimensions

Interview with Richard Jones: Content in 7 Dimensions

He leads the technical strategy for Inviqa's Content Practice, which specializes in eZ Platform and Drupal 8 development. He is a prolific open source contributor and regular speaker at UK and international events. I asked him more about his background and role at Inviqa.

RJ: "My role at Inviqa is to oversee delivery and design of all content-based projects from a technical perspective. I've been working in content management since about 2000 (before we realized it was a thing and gave it a name)."

RM: Can you give us a sneak peek into your keynote, the 7 Dimensions of Content, personalization, and its application and implication to modern websites?

RJ: "The presentation I am delivering this year at eZ Conference is intended to give modern insight into the problems that publishers have had for many years-that is content competing for limited available space. That used to be "above the fold" on the front page of a newspaper-now it's the screen.

Most people are familiar with the value of personalization, but here I'll give a practical exploration of the different methods of personalization available when working in a CMS. My hope is to provide the eZ Conference audience with some inspiration and practical takeaways about how they can bring more relevant content to their visitors.

We'll also look at the darker side of personalization and how it's all our responsibility to make sure we are using personalization in the best interests of our users."

RM: How important do you think are today's developments in Platform-as-a-Service, Content-as-a-Service, and the way CMS providers adopt their CMS architecture to building blocks resulting in separate layers like storage, API etc., resulting in the concept of a headless and multi-channel CMS?

RJ: "I've been talking a great deal over the last year (including at last year's eZ Conference) about "the Future of Content" which is very much about the trend towards headless CMS and how this is an essential strategy in the age of the "unknown consumer." The move towards voice UI and chatbots, for example, means we have to separate content from design, and structure it carefully so that the same content can be used appropriately by devices with completely different contexts and capabilities."

RM: We love open source at eZ. Do you think open source has been important in the evolution of CMS's and online content, if so, to what extent?

RJ: "Absolutely! I've been actively involved in open source for the last 10 years and being able to understand and adapt software to the needs of an organisation has been essential to the projects I have worked on.

Proprietary software that cannot easily be modified tends to encourage manipulation of the business model or process to match the capabilities of the system. At Inviqa, we're passionate about using open, flexible technologies that can support evolving business goals."

RM: Do you foresee any new technology or trends in the (near) future, that will (re)shape our world of CMS and content?

RJ: "The changing internet landscape fuelled by the internet of things-is further accelerating the move towards headless, API-first CMS. This isn't going to slow down anytime soon. At the other end of the scale, we are seeing commoditization of some of the CMS market with SaaS CMSs becoming more popular. However, data control and ownership is still vitally important as is the ability to meet business goals."

RM: Any final words or advice to our conference visitors?

RJ: "Conferences are first and foremost an opportunity to network. You'll find people working in open source are very open about sharing their ideas-whether it be about projects they are working on or things they are sharing with the community. No matter what your experience level, there are things to learn from your peers in the community."
