CQ5.5: MCM emails contain URLs to author instead of publish

Issue

If you are using the Newsletter feature in MCM to send emails to lists of contacts you may notice that the URLs for assets in the email are pointing to the author instance, rather than the publish instance.  The links to the author instance will not work for external users, so the assets in the email will not show up.

Reason

This is a documentation issue as there is some further configuration required to substitute the links in the newsletter email so they point to the publish instance, rather than the author instance.  This will be addressed in a later version of CQ.

Solution

To resolve this issue in the meantime you should do the following steps:

  1. login to the system console on author (e.g. http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr)
  2. in the configuration tab search for the “Day CQ MCM Newsletter” bundle and open it
  3. take note of the fake host name in “Lookup for Sender Host” field (by default it is –publish–), i.e. the field should have http://–publish– in it
  4. open CRXDE Lite and goto /etc/map/http
  5. create a Node named –publish– of type sling:Mapping
  6. add a String property sling:match with value –publish–.80
  7. add a String property sling:redirect with value of your publish instance host name or IP including port(e.g. http://publishhost:4503)
  8. click Save All

Now when you send the newsletter it should substitute the author URL with the publish URL.

LiveCycle 7: how to create a WebDAV connection to the Forms appstore

Issue

 You can use Web Folders to browse the appstore from FormManager, or to publish forms directly from Designer, however you may encounter problems trying to connect to it using the following URL:

http://<server>:<port>/appstore/Forms

Solution

You will need to apply this fix first to enable Web Folders on your system:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888123/en-us (Follow method 2)

Then follow these instructions to connect to the WebDAV server:

For XP and W3K:

1.) Navigate to My Network Places

2.) Select Add a network place

3.) Enter http://<server>:<port>/appstore/Forms

4.) When prompted enter the username and password of a user that has the roles of Adobe Administrative Console User and LiveCycle Form Manager Administrator.

5.) You will be prompted for the credentials once again then the add network wizard will display a panel letting you identify a name for the network place.

6.) Select Next

7.) Select the check box to open this connection and select finish.

8.) You have now a webdav connection to the root of the appstore and can publish forms directly to it.

You can then use this Network place directly from Designer to publish/edit forms in the appstore.
