On the SharePoint Saturday Belgium I gave an introduction presentation about XSLT(http://www.slideshare.net/estruyf/introduction-to-xslt-spsbe07). In the following blog post series, consisting of three parts, I will step by step explain my given demos.
In this part I will explain you how to make the social features work on a SharePoint Blog site.
In the previous parts I showed you how to retrieve all tags for a specific page/item.
In this part, I will show you how you can integrate these tags into your design.
In the previous part I talked about retrieving the number of tags by code. The problem was that the GetTags method from the SocialTagManager class, could only retrieve tags from a specific user.
In this part I show you a way to retrieve the all the tags for a specific location/page.
Social media is a trending topic these days, more and more companies start to use it. As you may know, SharePoint 2010 also got social features like for example: tagging, I like it, social comments, etc.
In this post I show you how you can retrieve these tags and "likes" from your page.
When creating a content roll-up for all your discussion board items with a content query web part, you will see that replies will be retrieved as blank messages. This post explains you how to create an alternative content query web part style for your discussion board items.
In this post I will explain how you could create a Google Pie Chart with the use of XSLT. The data that I am going to visualize are the tasks status, so that you get an overview of all the tasks.
Adding properties to timer jobs could be handy if you want to set the reference to a particular site collection, or if you want to set some parameters that are needed to run the job.
This week I searched for a solution to reuse the page action buttons from the ribbon (Edit Page, Check In, Publish) in a page layout. It was a request of a client that wanted to make the page actions available on the page itself, so that it simplifies the creation/editing/publication process for the users.
When working with master pages and page layouts in SharePoint Designer, you sometimes need to manipulate multiple HTML tags/blocks at once.
