  • Blog Post: Hotfix available for SharePoint SP2 activation issue.

    You may remember the high priority post back in May ( Important information on SharePoint Server 2007 based products and SP2 ) about an issue with the state of activation after SP2 is installed on SharePoint Server and associated servers.  There was a pretty simple fix posted, but if you want to...

  • Blog Post: Walking the SharePoint Object Model

    (In response to a tweet conversation between @MattBremer and @mrackley)   The question was – how do you find all the web apps on a SharePoint server, from the server itself.  I have some old code from SharePoint 2003 that did this and so I figured I’d drop hit here – for REFERENCE only. ...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint and IE8 (B2)

    Last week on the local SharePoint “Stump the Experts” panel someone brought up the concern that .Net 3.5SP1  “Broke” their SharePoint installation.  We worked through the issue they had seen for a bit and discovered that they had also installed IE8 (B2) at the same time.  Well, I hadn...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint Designer 2007 Free Download Link

    That sounds like I’m giving you a super secret link, but truth be told, it’s free for everyone after the first of this month.  So if you haven’t given it a try, or haven’t spread the capabilities around because you didn’t have enough copies of it, jump on the link below and get your SharePoint content...
  • Blog Post: Roles for SharePoint projects

    One question that keeps coming up again and again is what should I look for in a SharePoint guy.  I get asked this a lot and from many different directions, but it’s a large enough topic that I’ve resisted following my rule and blogging the answer to any question I get asked more than once. ...
  • Blog Post: Phil response time slow, but it gets there.

    Matt has been on me to get pictures of some of my old SharePoint SWAG up, and I finally took the time to do it.  You can find the pictures below or on my Facebook photo album.  These are a set of toy cars that were part of the TechEd 2003 event in Dallas – all of the Office people were issued...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint conference coming up in March

    It's a bit out of my local neck of the woods, but David Walker mentioned it highly so I thought I'd pass along the info.   http://www.sharepointconference.org/Pages/default.aspx March 22-24 in Baltimore, MD.  I haven't talked with the organizers yet, but the topics look quite interesting.
  • Blog Post: Great post on Content Deployment in SharePoint

    One of the more mis-understood features in SharePoint is the Content Deployment functionality that was introduced in MOSS 2007.  Stefan Gossner has a very detailed post on many of the common problems people can run into when first using this new capability.  I definitely recommend taking a...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint for Developers Online Training

    There have been a lot of events and talks about using SharePoint for a development platform, but I know we all have jobs and can't always get to the local presentations.  If you're in that boat, Microsoft Learning has put up an online class that may help - and there are some nice benefits for completing...
  • Blog Post: Free SharePoint Developer Training in Houston

    Alex Holcombe is doing one of his outstanding events on using SharePoint as a development platform.  If you haven't heard him speak and are interested in SharePoint, I highly recommend going.  And if you have heard him speak, I don't need to recommend, you'll probably sign up with or without...

  • Blog Post: WSRP and SharePoint

    Since SharePoint 2003 was out I've had people asking about WSRP and how SharePoint supports it.  There's always been a fairly long discussion around what WSRP actually is, and where things lined up between that standard and the SharePoint model of doing things.   Well as of today, you have...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint and Team System

    One of things I get asked a lot about is how to do Life Cycle management with SharePoint Development - mainly because SharePoint makes it so easy to forget about the line between content and code. So what do you do when you're working on your custom feature or solution?  Take a look at the post...
  • Blog Post: Oh, My. :-(

    I just learned from Bil Simser that Patrick Tisseghem passed away on Wednesday.  When I first got into blogging, Patrick was one of those that was leading the way with figuring out what SharePoint was and could do.  I still have great pleasure in handing out/recommending his books.  I...

  • Blog Post: A quick tweak here and there

    As you may notice, I fixed my archives column being... Less than left justified. :-)  If you're running the EBE, note that all you have to do is go into the Monthcount.xsl for the theme of your choice, and then add a wrapper around the row template (ie <a title=...).  Not too bad, but do...
