Geeks With Blogs

I've used geekswithblogs for a while now, and although it is quite easy to get started, there are many shortcomings, especially when composing a blog article and formatting text, code and images. I tried using windows live writer as recommended, but I didnt manage to make it work. So I have finally decided to move to wordpress.com. My old blog posts ......

I recently needed to create a rich text field in a SharePoint list programatically. Since I am using REST all over the place, it would be practical to continue that now as well.I was able to find out how to create a new field. It is done by posting to this url: reqUrl = appweburl + "/_api/SP.AppContextSite(@t... + listName ......

Choosing the right backup scheme for your personal files is essential, and far too often backup is not considered until it is too late. With Mozy Home cloud backup, I thought I was well prepared for disaster. Man, was I wrong!As many other families we have a lot of photos and videos covering all stages of our little ones, from birth, to present. Using ......

When dealing with SharePoint Online, there are some limitations to consider.The most famous one is the list view threshold of 5000 elements in a list view. But there are also others. In my company, we have implemented a project workspace solution for managing projects. In essence, we create a subsite for every project in a project list. This has lead ......

Ok, I will try not to make this a rant, but after knocking my head against the proverbial wall for several hours, that is going to be a tough one, LOL.The problem was seemingly trivial: Create a SharePoint hosted add-in part with a button that creates an item in a list in the host web.After all, I have been working with list items quite a bit from the ......

The "something-as-a-service" model is already a defacto standard in IT. If you need something to get done, there is almost certainly a service that will do that for you. As the model matures, you can sit back and rest assured that the job is done well and cheap.So when I faced the need for sending email from my web service, why did I spend half the ......

I love Azure!As a developer, Azure is simply the greatest thing that has happened since intellisense. Today you are rarely building an individual program to be run at a single computer. Most apps today have some kind of consciousness to the world around it. Before Azure, this used to be a pain in the butt, because budgets rarely allowed for creating ......

SharePoint Online and Office365 have many great features, but until a few months ago, a serious limitation existed. There was absolutely no way for a service to interact with SharePoint Online. Yes, you could use the Office365 API to log on to SharePoint and retrieve a token that could be used witht he API. But you HAD TO enter the user name and password ......

I was just working on an Azure web site that needs to work on https only. I came across this solution that pointed me in the right direction:http://blogs.msdn... as pointed out in the comments, there are curly quotes in the code that prevents compilation. Furthermore, ......

I love the SharePoint lists, they are so easy to set up and customize. I use it all the time.Still, there is room for improvement. The display/new/edit forms for example, are not very customizable OOTB. However, by making some very simple tweaks, you can make great improvements. This time I had a form displaying a couple of date fields, where it was ......
