Carolina Code Camp 2013: Introduction to SharePoint Development

I spoke this weekend at the Carolina Code Camp on the CPCC campus here in Charlotte and my topic was an Intro to SharePoint Development for .NET Developers (those that have no knowledge of SharePoint). It’s a topic that I’ve been talking about often with new and experienced devs alike, who want to know everything from how to set up a development environment to how to start coding and what can SharePoint do. From my experience, a lot of the intro presentations given focus on writing those first lines ......

How to delete SharePoint alerts for orphaned (deleted) users–WSS 3.0/SharePoint 2007/2010

An issue came up at my client recently, where our webmaster email account was being flooded with non deliverable email notices. Messages were bouncing back because our SharePoint farm was sending alerts to users and email address that no longer existed. This was on a WSS 3.0 farm, and we don’t have any third party tools (like Axceler’s ControlPoint) to help manage scenarios like this. So, I decided to tackle the problem with PowerShell. Of course the first step in writing a PowerShell script is to ......

SharePoint Training Resources–Update

A couple of weeks ago I taught a SharePoint Designer 2010 class. During preparation for the class, and working with 2010 for six months, I’ve collected the following training content (some of these might be 2007 related): http://www.sharepoint-video... http://www.youtube.com/user... http://www.microsoft.com/le... http://msdn.microsoft.com/e... ......

Tip: How to determine which SharePoint web front end you’re hitting

Have you ever set up a SharePoint farm with multiple WFEs (web front ends) and then wondered later which server you were hitting? Ever have a user get an error but you can’t recreate it, only find to find out much later it’s because the user was hitting a different WFE than you were and that particular WFE was the only one with the error? Or have you ever had a misconfigured hardware load balancer that is directing all of the traffic to just one poor overloaded WFE while the others sit there idle? ......

Integrating Windows Form Click Once Application into SharePoint 2007–Part 4 of 4

(This is a series of posts covering how to include a WinForm app inside a SharePoint 2007 application, which allows users to upload batches of files to a SharePoint document library. For further info, please see Posts One, Two, and Three. All of the code can be downloaded in Post Two.) Just a quick review of our solution, as detailed in the first three posts of this series: a Custom Action adds a menu choice to a document library’s Upload menu, which links to a Windows Form application deployed using ......

Integrating Windows Form Click Once Application into SharePoint 2007–Part 3 of 4

(This is a series of posts covering how to include a WinForm app inside a SharePoint 2007 application. For further info, please see Posts One, Two, and Four.

Our custom action adds a new link to the Action menu of a document library’s toolbar: Adding a ......

Access denied error when adding new server to existing SharePoint 2007 Farm

I recently got an error when adding a new SharePoint 2007 (SP2) server to our existing MOSS farm. I had run the installation fine, and was walking through the SharePoint Configuration Wizard, when I got an error on step 2: “Resource retrieved id PostSetupConfigurationFaile... is Configuration of SharePoint Products and Technologies failed.” I searched the net, but didn’t really find anything. I then remembered that I had forgotten to run the latest SharePoint updates (for us, the latest applied ......

(This is a series of posts covering how to include a WinForm app inside a SharePoint 2007 application. For further info, please see Posts Two, Three, and Four. All of the code can be downloaded in Post Two.) Last year, I had the opportunity to build a solution that involved integrating a Windows Form application into a SharePoint 2007 (WSS version 3.0). In this post, I’ll layout our architecture thinking and in part two, I’ll describe the technical details. Business Case Our challenge was this: we ......

SharePoint 2007 Parser Error after updating master page

A few weeks ago I was updating the master page for a SharePoint 2007 (WSS) site. The client wanted the site updated to reflect the new look and feel that is being applied to another set of sites in the organization. I created a new theme and master page, which I already wrote about here and here. It worked well, except for a few pages on a subsite. On those pages, I got the following error: Server Error in '/' Application. Parser Error Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource ......

Deploying a SharePoint 2007 theme using Features

I recently had a requirement to update the branding on an existing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS version 3.0) site. I needed to update the theme, along with the master page. An additional requirement is that my client likes to have all changes bundled up in SharePoint solutions. This makes it much easier to move code from dev to test to prod and more importantly, makes it easier to undo code migrations if any issues would arise (I agree with this approach). Updating the theme was easy enough. ......
