📰 Using external authentication providers and JWT Tokens with Umbraco members

Andrew McKaskill discusses integrating Umbraco with an external authentication provider and JWT token middleware. He details setting up Auth0, configuring Umbraco for external login, adding JWT bearer token middleware, and changing the default authentication scheme. The process allows using JWT tokens to authenticate as standard Umbraco members.
📰 Tag-style exact-matching multiple strings when searching with Examine in Umbraco

Searching for exact strings in Examine can be complex due to tokenization and inconsistencies. Store values as raw to avoid token splitting. Use the TransformingIndexValues event to split repeatable text strings into atomic values. This ensures accurate search results for exact matches.
