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...

by zebsadiq 21. November 2012 07:38

Quite often, a client wants a SharePoint site to be completely setup after deployment. Such was the case on a recent project that I worked on.

I had a custom site configuration inside a custom ONET.xml file. Which defined a set of features to be activated in a particular order. One of these features was designed to manipulate the current web’s navigation settings.More...

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.

by ZebSadiq 7. December 2010 19:55

On nearly all of the SharePoint implementations I've participated on, there has been a requirement to customise the look and feel of the search results page. This makes sense because it would be odd from the user experience for the SharePoint look and feel to change all a sudden when the user decides to search for a keyword.
Here I will try to explain how to create a custom search site template that uses one custom search results layout for all different types of search results. More...
