Sitecore Datasource is widely used across all projects. It helps in specifying what is the value a Sitecore Field can take or list of values from which the user will select from. For example, a Sitecore MultiList should have a datasource specified in the template so that the list of items can be available upon creation of the item. You can also specify a datasource in the rendering parameters window when adding a sublayout.
Last week, I had been given the task to check all the different agents that have been implemented if they are active or not. It was like performing a sort of audit. This is a very easy job to be done. In order to be able to see if the agents are activated, I would need to go to the showconfig page which is already in built when installing the Sitecore Instance.
Last night, I have encountered an issue concerning Sitecore Icons which went missing. I have installed a fresh Sitecore Instance and when opening the CMS, most of my icons were not loaded. Even after restarting IIS, the issue was not solved. During this small post, I will explain how I have resolve this problem.
