Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions SharePoint
Minimal Master Page Ajax Issue
Hi All, just wanted to point out a teensy weensy but maybe very useful tip. It might be outdated information if you are using SharePoint 2010, but if you are using SharePoint 2007 then you might find this useful. I am sure all of you working with SharePoint has come across Heather Solomon through her blog, it being a really wonderful resource for skinning SharePoint. Heather also has provided a ton of help to the SharePoint community by sharing the minimal masterpages for WSS and MOSS. What I wanted ......

SQLSessionState, SharePoint & Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
All right I admit, that's a very abstract title for a blog post, and its not eye catchy or snazzy as something like “What to do when you get a “Object reference not set to an instance of an object. exception on a SharePoint farm that uses SQLSessionState. “ But hey its supposed to grab your attention if you are having this problem. Ok so the error is Server Error in '/' Application. Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution ......

MOSS BDC Design Studio by Simego
I am actually pleased that today we have a bit of variety in tools that can generate BDC Application Definitions. An addition to this list of tools is "MOSS BDC Design Studio" by Simego, which actually quite good and easy to use. The site offers a 14 day trial version, and prices aren't that bad (but me thinks it should priced more a little bit more reasonably). But still for all the tool is quite good, it seems to be limited to SQL Server and WebServices which is a limitation. The other limitation ......

Is There no Way to Add a Document Template as a Feature?
Yes, that's the question I have been pondering for the last couple of hours (maybe more). And I am begriming to believe that it cant be done. Other than for the route of either writing a feature receiver to upload the template to a list on activation (but I think this approach is unclean) or modify onet.xml (a site definition?). I think both approaches are unnecessarily complex for the task at hand. Think about it, just so that I could have a custom document library or form library with a custom ......
