Weird unsolved SharePoint 2010 SSL issue vs SharePoint 2013

by zebsadiq 24. February 2014 15:35

We developed a SharePoint component that originally communicated with the twitter API over http. This component was then ported from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. Therefore the code was 90% the same in both solutions. Then twitter changed their API requirements and made https compulsory. Therefore the fix to the component was made in the SharePoint 2013 solution. This worked fine through the various testing environments. When the same change was applied to SharePoint 2010, the component did not work. Here is how I set out to investigate the issue: More...

Bypass version check when installing SharePoint CU

by zebsadiq 5. December 2013 02:13

I came across an issue when trying to install the June 2013 cumulative update for SharePoint 2010. I kept getting the "The expected version of the product was not found on the system" error whenever I tried to run the installer even though I had SharePoint 2010 service pack 2 installed. More...

Hiding associated html elements when SharePoint field is empty

by zebsadiq 29. January 2013 08:30

This server control will help you hide html elements which shouldn’t display in ‘display mode’ if a certain SharePoint field is empty. This must be a common requirement amongst most SharePoint projects so I’m surprised that I haven’t covered this earlier as its not commonly documented elsewhere. More...

Achieving partial / mixed SSL (http and https) FBA in SharePoint 2010

by zebsadiq 16. January 2012 10:52

It is such a simple and common requirement but it can be a nightmare to achieve out of the box with SharePoint. I spent quite a bit of time working out how a user can be authenticated via https and maintain their login cookie over http pages (without having to sign in again). More...

Updating existing alert subscriptions in SharePoint 2010

by zebsadiq 13. January 2012 11:43

One of the annoyances about SharePoint alerts seems to be that the functionality of an alert template and existing subscriptions on an existing list, seem to be disjointed. When you update an alert template property for an existing list, the change is not applied to any existing alert subscriptions on that list. As a follow up to my previous post SharePoint 2010 custom alert template, I will try to describe the limitations and issues surround existing alert subscriptions and the options available to work around them.

SharePoint 2010 custom alert template

by zebsadiq 27. November 2011 18:14

Having gone through the experience of adding a custom alerts template to SharePoint 2010, I thought I’d share my learning during this process. This is the first part of two posts regarding custom alert templates. Updating existing alert subscriptions in SharePoint 2010 describes the challenges around updating existing alert subscriptions. In this post, I hope to cover what you need to know to create a custom alert template. More...

The type of namespace 'administration' could not be found

by zebsadiq 3. February 2011 13:16

Issue when you reference Microsoft.SharePoint.dll in Visual Studio 2010. If you’ve already put in the using statements like bellow:

using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration;

You issue a build and it fails and you get the following message:
’The type of namespace 'administration' could not be found’

The fix: Change the target framework to .Net Framework 3.5 (Right click the project in visual studio and go to ‘Properties’)

SharePoint 2010 Beta installation run through

by ZebSadiq 23. April 2010 22:57

Following on from my previous post about SharePoint 2007 installation process, I thought it would  be a good idea to write about the SharePoint 2010 beta installation. The good news is that on Server 2008 R2, the installations is much smoother than before. Microsoft does claim to have put in more time and effort on this product and it is really starting to show. Remember that this installation guide is for SharePoint 2010 BETA and therefore may be different to the release version. More...
