Posted here for reference 🙂 using System; using System.Net; using System.Diagnostics; using System.Collections; using Microsoft.SharePoint; using Microsoft.SharePoint.Navigation; using Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing; using Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration; using Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy; […]

First, let me start this post by saying that I absolutely love that navigation in SP2010 is completely standard HTML. This is a ‘codeless’ method for turning that left nav quick launch in to a nifty tab control. The use case for this, was for some landing pages people wanted tabs rather than quick launch […]

When we started analysis for upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to 2010 we went through the pre-existing code base of roughly twenty solutions and dozens upon dozens of features and web parts. Much of this existing code base had known issues ranging from security (never use RunAsElevated for user facing components!), to memory leaks, to just […]

So the other architect of the eBay SharePoint 2010 Upgrade has started writing up details on how we did the upgrade. At a high level we had to upgrade from a *highly* customized and largely unmanaged organic SharePoint 2007 implementation in to a highly managed SharePoint 2010 instance. We had about 3 1/2 months to bring everything […]

So, a common complaint I’ve seen from clients is how SharePoint 2010 inserts unnecessary paragraph tags within rich text content. Now, until Microsoft changes how this functionality works I’d like to present a simple jQuery solution for semi-intelligently hiding these unneeded P tags. What this does is run through the P tags on the current page. If […]

So I was experimenting trying to fix an issue the SharePoint 2010 ribbon not being left aligned and came across some unusual behavior. If you float the ribbon left you will always get the simplified collapsed ribbon view. Giving a much more intuitive interface, though more advanced options take additional clicks. This has the possibility […]

Horizontal Full Breadcrumb

In SharePoint 2010 out of the box you only get the full hierarchy from the ‘Folder Up’ icon in the ribbon. However, if you’ve ever tried to just copy this control and use it in place of the truncated breadcrumb you’ll find it doesn’t quite behave as you want and there is no intuitive way to make […]
