    No, this isn't a Microsoft bashing post. Why should you read the Title and think that? I'm prompted to write about this because I came across all three different UI "improvements" today and even though I've been annoyed by two of them for weeks, the third one turned up today when I was using Feedly to update the SPF 2013 and WSSv4 sites with some new Article links. They've "improved" the UI so that I now need several extra clicks to achieve the same thing. Before there were two steps 1.

  • Configuring Global Registration Fields in Extranet Collaboration Manager (ExCM) 2013

    Registration is one of the core concepts in Extranet Collaboration Manager 2013. There are two types of registration; Anonymous and Invitation. The most common, by far, are the Invitation Registrations. You send an e-mail to a potential new user, they click on the Registration link provided and they are taken to the custom Registration Page on your site. Here is an example:This page can be completely customized to capture the data you want from your users.  In the example above, we are capturing the following (field type in parentheses):        …

    I was in the mood for brunch today so I decided to make Country Sausage and Gravy, Grits and Poached Eggs.  It’s quick, simple and, oh so, delicious! I absolutely love grits.  However, by themselves, they can be bland and boring.  The next time you make grits, consider spicing them up; the possibilities are endless.  When I make shrimp and grits, most often I will add sharp white cheddar cheese, havarti cheese, garlic, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and onion.  This gives them a nice kick and really complements the shrimp. For brunch today, I had already made up my mind that I…

  • It's not just Microsoft, Apple works in strange ways too

    21 Aug 2014 | 3:39 am
    I use iTunes on a Windows 7 machine to keep track of my Podcasts. I don't listen to any of them on the Windows 7 machine (dare I say "of course") but instead transfer them to a particular one of my two iPods and listen to them on my long daily walks. [aside: this isn't the oddity I mean but the way iTunes works with iPods means that it's safer for me to use one iPod with the Windows 7 machine for my podcasts and use the other iPod with the Windows 8 machine - with a more solid DVD drive - for my music] I was recently having problems with iTunes.

  • Stefan Goßner makes a valiant attempt to show the difference between HotFixes; Cumulative Upgrades and Upgrades

    20 Aug 2014 | 10:18 pm
    This is a follow-up to my post of the 16th of August. Clearly I wasn't the only person to contact Stefan about having KB articles with Titles "Hot Fix ..." and calling them "Cumulative Upgrades" because in his post here http://blogs.technet.com/b/stefan_gossner/archive/2014/08/19/sharepoint-patching-demystified.aspx he makes a valiant attempt to clear up what he refers to as "SharePoint Patching". It's long, detailed but in clear language, and probably does reflect the reality but for me while it makes as much sense as is possible it is still explaining what is…
  • When is a HotFix actually a Cumulative Upgrade - Microsoft KB article writers destroy a long-term (and good) practice (or was this a simple mistake?)

    15 Aug 2014 | 7:14 pm
    Until this month there has been a consistency in Microsoft KB articles about their improvements to their SharePoint products (*). - There were Hot Fixes which were fixes for single problems. - There were Cumulative Upgrades which were updates which included all the different Hot Fixes up to that point. (*) Since about a couple of years there have also been "Upgrade for xxxx" posts with no logical positioning ... This month however - as I discovered when I found that what Stefan Gossner was describing as Cumulative Upgrades were in fact articles with a Hot Fix title - this…
  • Even the most basic problems can still appear in Windows 8.1

    8 Aug 2014 | 8:02 pm
    I went away for two days and despite pulling all the plugs out because of the risk of thunder in that time, when I came back a number of things didn't work. My DAC that was feeding digital output from the TV into my HiFi system showed yellow instead of green and more importantly *didn't* feed sound into my HiFi any more. My headphone adapter (physically next to the DAC) still worked fine but no longer had a blue light when switched on. Clearly I blundered by pulling the DAC power cable out of the DAC rather than (as I had done with virtually everything else) pulling the plug from the wall. In…

  • Configure ExCM Password to Meet Corporate Complexity

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:57 am
    One of my favorite help desk stories is the lady that was attempting to use “DocDopeySneezySleepyGrumpyBashfulHappy” as her password. When asked about it she stated, “Because it had to include 7 characters.” These days, you would at least need to throw Snow White in there as well because most places require at least 8 characters… and do not get me started on alpha numeric and at least one special character with no repeating characters! As an IT guy, I have been the recipient of a tongue lashing from a few “less-than-happy” end users, when I informed them that the password they…

  • Using SPGA’s Governance Features – Automating Change Requests, such as Adding Users to SharePoint Groups

    13 Jul 2014 | 4:04 pm
    The letters SPGA stand for Site Provisioning and Governance Assistant. There is certainly a lot of governance that is covered in the initial site provisioning process, such as always having proper approvals, and having the sites stamped out to your exact specifications each time without failure. To paraphrase something SharePoint MVP Dan Holme said at SPC 14:If a policy isn’t enforced by the technology, it’s not a policy, it’s a guideline.  This is exactly what SPGA does, it uses technology to enforce your governance standards. While most purchase SPGA for its ease of site…

    How many times have you been told the solution to your SharePoint 2013 needs require custom .NET development? Unfortunately, many consultants and consulting firms resort to custom .NET development because they are unfamiliar with how to truly architect solutions in SharePoint 2013. Granted, a certain amount of custom .NET development is required for most implementations; however, having a thorough understanding of how to architect your information to support business contextual needs, is the key to dramatically reducing those custom efforts and gaining more long-term value.

More recently I posted about one aspect of Dialogue in my post on Defensive Routines and a second aspect in The Inner Game of Dialogue If you've missed it, I'd suggest you start with that post because it is really the other half of this post which got to be way too long.

In the final post we'll do the actual book review and talk about the challenges involved with creating the conditions for dialogue.

    If you haven’t already grabbed it, just a quick note to let you know that Microsoft put an update of the ULS Viewer tool out recently. For quite a while the tool had been removed from code.msdn.microsoft.com and those who had “lost” a copy had to resort to annoying others to get it. ULS Viewer, as I’ve written previously is an essential tool for working with SharePoint.  The new version has a number of tweaks including viewing across a farm, rather than manually having to configure that up.

    Matthew McDermott
    13 Aug 2014 | 9:47 am
    I have been busy this week creating a PowerShell script that recreates an organically grown SharePoint Site Collection with a dozen hierarchical sites based on site templates. The last time we created a site like this it took about 3 days. With a script I have it down to about 8 minutes on an Enterprise (E3) Tenant. One issue I ran into was when I tried to apply my site templates to the new site for my client I received the error: New-SPOWeb : The site template requires that the Feature {592ccb4a-9304-49ab-aab1-66638198bb58} be activated in the site collection.

    I have been presenting how I provision SharePoint 2013 Search for quite a while and have finally gotten around to publishing my script for provisioning a SharePoint Search Service Application with PowerShell. This script can be used to initially provision SharePoint Search in a multi-server environment. With minor tweaks it can also be used to alter an existing topology.

    As I sit here, back at home, Ruby laying on me, I am still in awe of what the folks at Combined Knowledge accomplished with the SharePoint Evolution Roadshow. The plan was pretty straight forward, take a bunch of speakers on a 12 city tour and present 20 sessions a day in 4 tracks. The logistics and permutations are daunting. Sure, it would be easier if they used the same speakers in every city, but they didn’t, only 5 of us committed to the entire tour. The rest of the speakers were on the tour for one or more days. Next, you had to get us from place to place. Did I mention that one of…
  • Limit the Scope of your Result Sources

    Matthew McDermott

    I struggled with what to title this post. I run across this all the time when evaluating “OPW” (Other People’s Work). If you navigate to a search results page that does not have a query defined and you see a whole bunch of “Default Results” then you know what I am talking about. The Problem This is what I mean. In the picture below I am on my “Customer” search page and I have not entered a search term, yet I still get results.

  • Configure SharePoint 2013 FBA through IIS

    Matthew McDermott
    16 Apr 2014 | 2:57 pm
    One of the chores that I really wish Microsoft would make easier in SharePoint is configuring Forms Based Authentication (FBA). I know this could be quite a challenge and I know that “once you do it a couple times it is pretty easy”. But for us mere mortals who only configure FBA every so often it can be a bit tricky. My biggest pet peeve is copy and paste errors that TOTALLY crash the site. Then the joy of trying to figure out each setting that may have caused the error, only to find it’s caused by a quote that you thought was a double quote but tuned out to be something…

    Today I released the Single Page App version of mavention.com. This November on the SharePoint Connect 2014 conference I will be presenting a session about building SharePoint 2013 portals and public-facing websites using the Single Page App (SPA) approach. To show you, that it’s all not smoke and mirrors that I am talking about, but also to give you a working example that you can refer to after my presentation, I decided to build a SPA-version of the mavention.com website. Although it is a public-facing website, everything that you see on it can be applied to a content-driven portal as…
  • Inconvenient Content Targeting with User Segments in Search REST API

    Waldek Mastykarz
    22 Aug 2014 | 12:53 am
    Content Targeting with User Segments just works with Content Search Web Parts but some additional work is needed if you want to leverage it with the Search REST API. Content Targeting with User Segments in SharePoint 2013 One of the great capabilities of SharePoint 2013 Search is Content Targeting with User Segments. Using Query Rules you can specify how the search results of the particular search query should be modified. This allows you to change how the results are sorted but you can also add new results to the original set of search results. In order to have those Query Rules executed,…

    Leveraging SharePoint 2013 Search REST API for anonymous users allows you to build powerful search-driven solutions. Often, particularly in the early stages of the project, queries might not work as expected. So how do you find out what’s wrong? SharePoint 2013 Search REST API for anonymous users SharePoint 2013 Search REST is a very flexible API that allows you not only to configure whether this particular API should be available to anonymous users but also allows you to choose which capabilities those users are allowed to use. This last part is done by specifying a white list of the…

    Leveraging the Search REST API allows you to build rich search-driven solutions. If you’re not careful however, you might get results other than intended even though everything seems to be working correctly. SharePoint 2013 Search REST for anonymous users Previously I wrote about the steps required to allow anonymous users to use the SharePoint 2013 Search REST API. One of the steps was to upload a configuration file to a specific Document Library. When done correctly you should be able to see some search results for your query: If you however take a closer look you might notice that the…

    SharePoint 2013 offers rich API for interacting with Managed Navigation. Unfortunately, some additional work is required if you need to use it with anonymous users. Managed Navigation in SharePoint 2013 One of the new capabilities of SharePoint 2013 is Managed Navigation. Using the Managed Metadata Service it allows you to model the navigation and structure of your website decoupling it from its physical structure. The great benefit of using Managed Navigation is that it allows you to optimize your website for both visitors and content managers and that is simplifies the content management…

  • Get a Real “World” View of Your Customers, Partners, and More with Virtual Map View

    Lindsay Bergstrom
    31 Aug 2014 | 9:01 pm
    Out-of-the-box SharePoint offers multiple ways to display data; however, there is no map view for geographical information. Virtual Map View fills this gap by offering users the ability to use Google or Bing Maps to easily display SharePoint lists or SQL data on a map. By plotting information on a map, Virtual Map View provides a better way to visualize geographic data. It also enhances user experience by providing multiple columns of list information in addition to geographical locations. When you invest in Virtual Map View, you'll benefit from its powerful capabilities, including the…

  • ASP.NET MVC 6: Reading form values

    Gunnar
    17 Aug 2014 | 4:42 am
    With new HttpContext in ASP.NET MVC 6 we will also get new request class. One markable change is how form variables are read from request. As there is no key-value collection with form variables that is filled by default when request is created we have to read form values asynchronously. Here’s the example how to do it. As far as I understand then the decision to not load form variables by default is related to keeping HttpContext object graph minimal. New request object has asynchronous method called GetFormAsync() and we will use this method to load form variables. public async…

    ASP.NET MVC 6 is mostly about rework of framework internals and it comes with changes that affect also our applications. One important improvement is new HttpContext class. In this posting I will discuss about this new class a little bit. Why new HttpContext? New HttpContext was needed anyway because by default ASP.NET MVC 6 has no reference to System.Web assembly. All needed functionalities from this assembly are moved to new libraries and many of these are changed or will change (probably). The other reason is too big object graph of current HttpContext. It takes approximately 30K in memory…

  • Responsive Top Navigation Menu

    23 Jul 2014 | 9:03 am
    In my quest to design a perfect three levels down responsive top navigation menu for SharePoint, I’ve stumbled on some annoyances that only people dealing with branding the SharePoint sites will understand me. First, we need to give a bit of credit to MS for allowing us to use CSS instead of the old fashioned tables by setting the UseSimpleRendering property to “True”. An improvement, but far from a smooth sailing. Second, why in the name of Merlin’s saggy left, MS decided to use the ClientIDMode property to generate and insert the pesky ID, zz2_RootAspMenu,…

  • SharePoint security best practice: Think long term

    Chris Wright

    Security in SharePoint is pretty easy to setup and manage initially. SharePoint security best practice for the long term is a lot harder to achieve. Authenticating users from Active Directory works well, and the SharePoint security model allows permissions to be easily assigned. But keeping things running smoothly as systems grow and expand can be tricky, not least because SharePoint doesn’t really make it easy to review an entire estate in any meaningful way. For example there is no quick way to: Look at the data volume of all SharePoint sites Get a report of all users with a certain…

        One of the possible ways to pass a collection of values to a stored procedure is to use Associative Array (also known as Index-By Tables). For example, the declaration of the stored procedure accepting array of strings may resemble the following: TYPE str_table_type IS TABLE OF VARCHAR2(255) INDEX BY PLS_INTEGER; PROCEDURE Save_Something ( p_str_array IN str_table_type, ... p_MSG_OUT OUT VARCHAR2 ); To call such stored procedure we need to create and properly fill out the p_str_array parameter.
