I am really very excited to write this post because this post related to my first tool that have contributed in Sitecore Market Place (https://marketplace.sitecore.net). Finally they have approved and published the “Item Operations Tool” module and it is available on Sitecore marketplace.

This tool is use for doing some basic operations on item. So have given name as “Item Operations Tool”. Mainly this tool use for comparison of item with live item, count sub items and expands all the dependents of item

Item Comparer

I am going to provide a tool in Content Editor that will allow users to compare contents of master and web databases. (Sitecore Ribbon: Version -> Item -> Item Compare)

– This will show all fields of both databases to compare.

– The default selected item and language should be compared.

Once you click on Item Compare button.

This will show all fields of both databases to compare.

Note:

The differences are highlighted in blue and red.

Blue: Apply on field value to highlight difference of field value.

Red: Apply on field title to identify that the field value is different form live field value).
