About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

My Battle with the Quick Launch Accordion Slider Control
A good portion of this week was spent recovering some documents that were deleted by a rogue console application (most likely my fault). I wrote a Console Application to combine some document libraries and I spent a good portion of a week testing it. However, I did not really think of enough scenarios, because it obviously did not move the documents properly. Some libraries were moved and others were not. At any rate I practiced my SQL Restoration skills and wrote another two console applications ......

How to Upgrade from SQL Express to SQL Enterprise Edition
I was using a VPC today, so that I could restore our content database and keep a copy of our SharePoint instance for development. I noticed that SQL Express only allows about 3-4 gb of data in a database. That wouldn't work out considering our Content DB is 21.9 GB. So I need to find a way to upgrade the SQL Server instace to SQL Enterprise Edition. I did some research and some tweaking and figured it out. If you open up a command prompt window and type in this information: start /wait C:\setup.exe ......

Dynamic Quick Launch Links in a Nested Master Page
I am attempting to do something nutty that I will explain in a second... We need all the links from a link list appended to the bottom of the quick launch and a bunch of global links appended to the top of the quick launch. The global links are universal to a bunch of sites, however the bottom links are not. So we decided to add the global links to the top master page and the site specific links from the link list to a nested child master page. The global links can change if the applications are ......

Pulling Information from a SharePoint List Produces HTML Tags in InfoPath 2003
I am working with a form in InfoPath 2003 using a bunch of filters and the current() row tag in a repeating table. The problem is when I use Rich Text Fields it does not render the HTML correctly. I am seeing tags for divs and breaks. When I try to do a string.replace and pass in the C# break equivalent of \n it removes the tags and adds no breaks in the Rich Text field. I am not sure if many people are using InfoPath 2003 still for development or if anyone is using it in MOSS. If you are you know ......

Hotfix 946517 and 941422, What happened to search?
As you may have read FrontPage Extensions were uninstalled after I pushed some hotfixes to our production box (http://mosslover.com/archi... The day before I noticed that search was not working, but I re-indexed everything and it seemed fine. The next day not so much. The Shared Service Provider(SSP) decided it no longer wanted to recognize production as an indexing server. Right now we are running on a two box farm with ......

Alerts...Why is it possible to setup an alert with the same frequency on the same item?
I kind of abandoned the administrator side of SharePoint lately on this blog. I wanted to write about an issue at Terracon that I have run into as of lately. I wrote a Site Data Reporting User Control as many of you have noticed. You have probably seen the CodePlex Project recently...Well I started to get a little curious and check if users were creating multiple alerts on a library, list, or item. I was a little astonished to see multiples of threes and fours set to a document library or list or ......

How I Got an Ajax Progress Bar to Work in SharePoint
So I did not really use multithreading...I went with Ajax instead and I used a button click event. We decided that we wanted to ask the users if they are sure they want to create the site before actually creating the site. It was so much easier in Ajax as you will see in the steps below: First off you want to download and install the ASP .Net 2.0 Ajax Extensions 1.0 from here: http://asp.net/ajax/downloa... Next you are going to need to change the web .config a little bit on your IIS Entry for the ......
