SharePoint: Redirect if user clicked a button previously

I just came across this question in sharepoint.stackexchange.com. When a user visits a SharePoint site, they are presented with a splash screen and need to accept the policy before they can proceed. Upon subsequent visits, the splash screen does not show, because SharePoint will remember the  user. PirateEric outlined a possible solution: Use a SharePoint [...]

Where did the MSDN SharePoint 2010 files go? All replaced with SharePoint 2013?

A few months ago I clicked a bookmarked link to an MSDN article about setting up the development environment for SharePoint 2010. Here is the link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869.aspx To my amazement, I found that the article now contains content about setting up the development environment for SharePoint 2013.

Link to edit item (ECB) on another column than Title – no code!

In SharePoint, any custom list will have a default column called “Title”. This column will have the edit menu attached to it when it is shown in a List View. The edit menu is also referred to as the “Edit Control Box” or ECB. The Title column can be renamed if another column name is [...]

A mega menu for SharePoint with a DVWP and a list

Mega Menus are a hot topic in current user interfaces. There are many JavaScript and jQuery tools out on the interweb that provide the JS code to present those Mega Menus in an appealing fashion.

In SharePoint 2010 it is easy to create custom color themes to jazz up a site, although trying out different color ideas may take a while, since it takes SharePoint some time to save, apply and render a new theme. Not good if you quickly want to flick through a few ideas. Using Office 2010, [...]

Infopath 2010 validation woes

While working on an Infopath 2010 form to be used in one of the SharePoint 2010 sites, I came across two challenges. End users will enter a number in a field, where values between 0 and 100 are allowed, in increments of 0.5. For example 11 or 22.5 or 65.0 are OK, but not 0.3 [...]

Beware of absolute links

This should be easy-peasy for anyone who has their html under control. If you develop a site that will move through different environments (i.e Dev/Test/Prod domains), make sure that the links you use are relative to the site root and not absolute paths to the domain. Example at hand: The SharePoint site image was set [...]

The SharePoint 2010 journey starts …

I’m about to be handed the keys to the vaults. After months of informally studying blogs, books and articles on the web, playing around in a corporate development space and setting up a SharePoint 2010 farm on a VM hosted on a Windows 7 laptop, I’ve finally absolved a one-week SharePoint 2010 Administrator training course.
