Quicklaunch Where Did You Go?

I just spent a good portion of today of part of yesterday on a really weird issue. Our sites had some custom branding for a client and the quick launch displayed perfectly for the root site. When you clicked on all the subsites the quick launch bar would not display. Myself and one of the branding guy’s at Planet, Jaimie Luetjen, were spinning our wheels (and I don’t think it helps that I have a cold). Finally Jaimie is able to login to the site and he threw up a live meeting, so we could figure ......

jQuery Accordion Control Musings

So lately I have been back in the dev arena more so and working from home. I find that I have some spare time because sometimes I pile directly through lunch. Today I was playing around with a control that I felt I had tested thoroughly. I was completely wrong. So here is an explanation of how to build out the accordion control in a webpart without having the same issues. First off go here and download the jquery-ui-1.8.16.custom.min.js and jquery-1.6.2.min.js. Then what I want you to do is create ......

SharePoint Saturdays Some Thoughts– A Follow Up

Paul Schaeflein wrote this yesterday: http://www.schaeflein.net/b... First off Paul is awesome so do not think of this blog post as an attack it is just my opinion. So first off I was there at the first SharePoint Saturday and I knew it was happening well before it happened. I have been an attendee, volunteer, speaker, and sponsor. I have thrown thousands of dollars and effort into these events. I am sold on the idea. Michael Lotter once told me that the whole point of ......

4 Years Ago this Weekend…

In January 0f 2009 something crazy and awesome happened for me, SharePoint Saturday was born. I was a 26 year old girl from Saint Louis Missouri who was living in Olathe, KS. About 5 month prior I went to the most pivotal event in my career and life in Washington DC, the Regional SharePoint Conference, where I met Michael Lotter, Paul Galvin, Tony Lanni, Bob Fox, and Rachel Appel. Several months later I was visiting Michael at a code camp in Raleigh North Carolina and he told me we’re going to have ......

HTML 5: Predictions for the Future of Silverlight in SharePoint

I’m not sure I have ever thrown this down in writing. I probably have said this 800 or 900 times, but I think that HTML 5 in SharePoint 2010 sucks. The support is terrible in the two most prevalent web browsers at the enterprise level – Internet Explorer and Firefox. If you can’t even get the video tag to work in IE 9 or the latest version of Firefox then that’s a huge fail for the product with HTML 5. What I think needs to be done in the product to improve HTML 5 support so that we can move towards ......

2011 So Long and Thanks for All the Fish…

2011 started with a bang and ended with a boom for me. Anyway that’s not what I want to talk about in this blog post. I am not looking back I am walking forward. I was reckless with my life for several years and thought it was the best idea to act in a certain manner. I was reckless because I was neglectful of my happiness. I am changing that in 2012. I am instituting a travel policy where I will be traveling only once a month for an event or user group and no more than once a month. That means I ......
