Testing Vimeo background video

Lets try Vimeo as a background for a page.

I've found a short post in here and it seems to be interesting. :)

The code is like this:
<iframe src="" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>
You may need to pay attention to background=1 in the querystring.

P.S: I don't have a Vimeo account :)

Surrounding EpiServer lines with a div in content area

Surrounding EpiServer lines with a div in content area

Some days ago I had a discussion with our frontenders  regarding the rows in ContentArea. They liked to have a div surrounding each line of the items so they can make the styles in a correct way. In this small post I will describe what have I done:
I will use Alloy Demo site to describe the issue and my solution

The problem:

In a ContentArea, if you add some items it will be a big div with multiple lines inside. 
As you can see in the picture item 1 is taking a line, 2 and 3 are in the second line and 4,5,6  are in the third line. And size of each block depends on their display options.

The request

Surrounding each line with a div with CssClass="row" and removing the one for content area.

The solution

Removing the css class from the ContentArea is too easy since it has been added to html.Propertyfor in the index page:

However to remove add the container around each row, you need to override ContentAreaRenderer. In alloy demo website, it has already been overridden to add suitable classes based on the tags and it is called   AlloyContentAreaRenderer. Just override RenderContentAreaItems method and add this code. Then you are good to go :)

       protected override void RenderContentAreaItems(HtmlHelper htmlHelper, IEnumerable contentAreaItems)
            float totalSize = 0;
            if (contentAreaItems.Any())
"); foreach (ContentAreaItem contentAreaItem in contentAreaItems) { var tag = this.GetContentAreaItemTemplateTag(htmlHelper, contentAreaItem); totalSize += GetSize(tag); if (totalSize>1) { htmlHelper.ViewContext.Writer.Write(@"
"); totalSize = GetSize(tag); } this.RenderContentAreaItem(htmlHelper, contentAreaItem, this.GetContentAreaItemTemplateTag(htmlHelper, contentAreaItem), this.GetContentAreaItemHtmlTag(htmlHelper, contentAreaItem), this.GetContentAreaItemCssClass(htmlHelper, contentAreaItem)); } if (contentAreaItems.Any()) htmlHelper.ViewContext.Writer.Write(@"
"); } float GetSize(string tagName) { if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(tagName)) { return 1f; } switch (tagName.ToLower()) { case "span12": return 1f; case "span8": return 0.666666f; case "span6": return 0.5f; case "span4": return 0.333333f; default: return 1f; } }

The result
