Linking Documents in SharePoint 2007
I recently met with a client that asked if you could like documents in SharePoint. I had many internal reactions the client asked but one specific memory stood out for me. A year ago I performed a migration from a document management system called DocuShare to SharePoint 2007. Docushare Migration to SharePoint 2007 There is very little out there on Docushare Migration, I thought maybe I would take the time to write a paragraph about this. I'm sure that Quest Software and DocAve have something to ......

Web Config Changes Security Issue
Hi all , I recently was working with a client that implemented a telerik navigation control as a quicklaunch. They decided to split up all the sub-sites into their own site collection. They wanted to place quotas on subs sites, and if you don't know, you can only set quotas on site collections and not sub sites. This switch or splitting of sites posed some interesting problems. 1) Telerik Control now needed to be added to each sub site for navigation. The control specifics were added to a master ......

CKS tools to Package Columns\Content Types\Lists Templates and List Instances
I have some basic rules when it comes to checked in code to TFS. The one at the top of the list of rules is that, any developer should get the latest code from TFS, deploy and have a working web part, workflow or any other customization in SharePoint. This means that all dependencies should be deployed with the customization. If the web part uses a custom list as a data source, then a developer should not have to manually create site columns with the ‘correct’ internal and display name, list instances ......

'To Sign or not to Sign' that is the question!
A while back I was helping a client upgrade SharePoint 2007 code to SharePoint 2010 and I came across this interesting problem. I was working web parts that were created in Visual Studio 2008 using WSPBuilder extensions. The first order of business was to convert them to Visual Studio 2010 templates instead of using WSPBuilder 2010 extensions. Why Use Visual Studio 2010 templates? There are two main reasons I highly recommend using Visual Studio 2010 templates instead of using WSPBuilder 2010 templates. ......

SharePoint 2010: Assign a Unique MasterPage to a Page Layout in a Publishing Portal
This post is a quick one to post some SharePoint code. This post refers to the post posted by Eric Overfield. Refer to the post to get the full background, but he explains how the OnPreInit event method overrides any MasterPage assignment you might put on your Page Layout. He eludes to the fact that you can use reflector to see that the URL to a master page is overridden. I thought I would post the code. So you understand what is happening in the method and how you can set the master page url. It ......

3 Helpful PowerShell Tips
I have been working with power shell quite a bit lately, I thought I’d write about 3 tips that have helped me. Notice how it is titled, "Helpful"? not "Ground breaking". It includes helpful commands that I have been using and a nice little Script editor that has one feature enough to win me over. Other's have writen about the commands (most of the time I write so I remember what I've done and how I have resolved issues) but I have not seen others write about other script editors. If you have been ......

SharePoint 2010 Diagnostic Studio Remote Diag
I have had some time this week to try out some tools that I have been meaning to try out. This week I am trying out the SP 2010 Diagnostic Studio. I installed it successfully and tried it on my development evironment. I was able to build a report and a snapshot of the environment. I decided to turn my attention to my Employer's intranet environment. This would allow me to analyze it and measure it against benchmarks. I didn't want to install the Diagnostic studio on the Production Envorinment, lucky ......
