Back to SharePoint Basics: Part 2–Creating Content

Welcome back to to my series on the basics of SharePoint.  If you've already read the first post, we covered what SharePoint is. Now we're ready to dive into how to create content in SharePoint.  (Notice I said create content, not any form of structure.)  We have to crawl before we can walk, right?  Then we can move on for the super users on how to create structure, the things that hold the content.

Back to SharePoint Basics: Part 1–What is SharePoint?

SP13_plus_c5

To start with and ensure we’re all talking the same thing, we need to level the foundation.  It’s easy to assume otherwise, but I continually find people at any given company across a variety of industries who don’t even know what SharePoint is.  They have heard the term perhaps, but don’t know what it is, much all it can do (beyond the dumping ground for your documents).  So let’s get started with Part 1.

Branding the SharePoint 2013 Global Navigation – Structural

 

5-7-2014 3-22-32 PM

A few months ago I posted on How to Brand the SharePoint 2013 Global Navigation if you were using the Managed Metadata service to render your navigation using a term set.  The menu code renders differently if you use structural versus managed navigation.  This post is going to look at how to leverage the same base CSS code but modify it to work on the structural navigation.

Account for SharePoint 2013’s Minimal Download Strategy with your Custom JavaScript


SharePoint 2013 introduced a new feature to aid in page load times called the Minimal Download Strategy. This only downloads JavaScript files when they are necessary. This sounds good until you try to load your custom JavaScript files that rely on standard hooks that SharePoint provides with it’s JavaScript files. The end result of all of this is that your code doesn’t execute. This post will provide you with JavaScript that will load your custom JavaScript whether this feature is turned on or not.

There are lots of articles online that walk you through how to update the “SharePoint” text that appears in the upper left corner of the new SharePoint 2013 ribbon.  This post is going to build on that to update the text so that it becomes a dynamic link to the current site collection root.

Archive Old Documents in SharePoint with PowerShell

What’s Up With This People SharePoint Taxonomy Group Anyway?

Classify SharePoint TaxonomyAfter having some pleasant discussions in the SharePoint Yammer SPYam community on this subject and finding almost no information online about this topic, I thought I’d put some fingers to  keys and do my part to share some information.  This post assumes you have basic concepts and knowledge of SharePoint taxonomies, but review TechNet if you need more info or to get up to speed on the basic concepts.

Allow Anonymous SharePoint Users to Open Office Documents

If you have ever managed an Anonymous SharePoint site you know that working with Office documents is a pain.  SharePoint and Office try to be smart.  SharePoint passes a path to the to the Office application and then the Office application goes out to the web application to get the file. This post is going to provide you with a way to override the default link for Office documents within SharePoint so you can avoid all the log-in prompts.

Creating a Search Based Employee Blog Rollup in SharePoint 2013

I recently got a request from a client that had a lot of employee engagement around blogging and they wanted to bring that front and center on their intranet home page. We were already rolling up an executive blog to the front page using the Content Query Web Part styled with some custom XSLT. They wanted it styled to look exactly the same, but using the CQWP again was out of the question since these employee blogs were coming from the user My Sites.

Update Default SharePoint 2013 Icon Colors

This post is going to look at updating the out-of-the-box SharePoint 2013 icons.  This comes in to play if you are creating a branded site.

Move all SharePoint Lists and Libraries to a New Site with PowerShell

I was on a project in the past where I was upgrading SharePoint 2007 to 2010.  I really didn’t want to move all the lists and libraries for 100+ sites manually, so I turned to PowerShell.  The following script takes the current site URL, and the new site URL where the lists will go.  It looks to see if there are actually items in the list, and only moves lists and libraries that actually have content.

Create a List-Driven SharePoint 2013 Site Notification System

Branding the SharePoint 2013 Global Navigation

In a previous post I described how to use the Managed Navigation functionality that is new in SharePoint 2013 to create a global navigation based on a Managed Metadata term set. This post is going to provide you with all the CSS you need to fully brand a SharePoint 2013 global navigation bar. 

Get SharePoint 2013 List Data with jQuery and Web Services


For a recent project, I needed to migrate around 70 HTML forms in their current format and serve them up from within SharePoint. These were fairly basic forms that just submitted all their data to email. Obviously, it would have been good to convert these to InfoPath or something else, but I simply didn’t have the time for that. In this post I will explain how I used SharePoint web services and jQuery to return SharePoint list data.

Use PowerShell to Create a Full SharePoint Training or Testing Site Environment


In this post I explain how to use PowerShell to create a full SharePoint (2010 or 2013) training site or testing site environment. This is the process I used to prepare for a recent SharePoint training course where I needed each of my users to have their own site collection in my environment.

SharePoint 2013 - A SharePoint Conference Recap and The Exciting Road Ahead

Last week, C5 Insight attended the annual SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas. It was a very full and eventful week, which was the primary reason I did not blog each evening on the daily events as I have in the past. My goal for this blog post is to summarize the overall conference highlights and some of the features that we see as very promising in SharePoint 2013.

Free SharePoint Training and other Resources

SharePoint 2010 trainingAs I work with various clients with different skill levels with SharePoint, I have on more than one occasion needed to compile a list of training resources. Microsoft (and others) provide a good number of resources so I thought I would try and compile a list in one place. These resources can be a mix of delivery methods including blogs, whitepapers, online videos, tutorials or courses. Let’s start with resources for end users, then move to the IT Pros, then to the developers. I started writing this for the purpose of training, but the lists quickly grew to include other resources, so I hope you find it a useful resource.

For the sake of this post, all resources will be for SharePoint 2010. But with the very soon to release SharePoint 2013, I will provide some information in another post. Stay tuned!
