- Asset-oriented search through a WCS-driven website's search box (or any equivalent feature). Developers must implement website-specific search logic; WCS provides a very basic API for this purpose.
In this post, we will focus on the fundamental aspects regarding Lucene-driven asset-oriented search in WCS-...
Since version 11gR1, WebCenter Sites has natively provided the capability to allow editors to create vanity URLs for assets out of the box.

With the SEO benefits and pleasant visitor experience, Vanity URLs have become a necessary feature without which websites’ cannot launch.

There are a multitude of reasons organizations will turn to a content management system, but the underlying goal is the same across the board: Managing your content in an organized way.

WCS Engage: Don’t Overload the Mailroom
One of the most useful features in Oracle’s WebCenter Sites is a feature entitled Engage. This feature was vastly improved from previous iterations in WCS 188.8.131.52 and provides the platform with the ability to use market segmentation. Delivering targeted content to a key demographic is the Rubix’s Cube every marketing department is furiously trying to solve.
Although rightfully drawn to this WCS feature, what has the potential to provide a tremendous amount of benefit can often turn into the second coming of...
