  • Blog Post: SharePoint and RSS

    John Durant , who has an excellent and widely read blog, posted about SharePoint and RSS today after a friend asked him if he knew of any web parts.

    Just a short post.

    If you find it can sometimes take 20–30 seconds to return the web part gallery so that you can drop a web part onto a web part page then this post is for you.

  • Blog Post: SharePoint and Querystrings

    Recently did a little bit of playing with querystrings (at the end of the URL, that is after the .aspx, put a '?' then the value below, to use more than one use an '&'), thought it might be something other people are interested in.
