When you migrate SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 or to Office 365 some of the views that was created in the previous version might look the same.
The user will get a mixed user experience because document libraries, switch between the old view styles to views that are configured for client side rendering. Via scripts those views can be recreate, but they also can be upgraded in-place.
To hide the tool part of a web part is pretty easy. You just need to edit the settings and set them to “No Toolbar” and you are done.
Today I needed to do this programmatically. After I debugged the list view web part an haven’t found a setting for this I took a look into the “clienttemplates.js”, which is mostly responsible to render the views correctly and voila I found a solution how to hide the toolbar.
Recently I have tried to use more and more SVG in web projects, because they are more flexible to use in responsive web projects. The most common file formats that are used in SharePoint as a site logo are GIF, JPEG or PNG. I wondered if Sharepoint SVG supports as a site logo, I tried it out and it worked charmingly.
By using SVG you get a great new opportunity to use in SharePoint projects without modifying the master page.[Read more]
Be careful when you change the title or the description in SharePoint you might set a logo url. Even if you don’t need to set one. Recently I found a strange behaviour in SharePoint during a branding project. The project included three site collections where each of those should have a different logo.
Somehow the logo couldn’t be changed in the complete site collection. A changed logo in the root of the site collection was not reflected on the sub site. Strange behaviour thou, because SharePoint has something that I call logo inheritance.[Read more]
Imagine you have a team site that provides curated information. Only a few people are allowed to update the content. The rest of the people only have view permission. To spread the word you like to make use of the Newsfeed web part for two reasons. People who follow this page will get updates on their Newsfeed. The other reason is that the viewers should be able to give feedback to your updates. Seem to be a pretty good solution and this is what the Newsfeed web part is actually being made more.
Newsfeed web part
The problem is that this web part is by design only for users that have at least contribute permission. With some simple steps this behaviour can be changed and allow everyone reply to the Newsfeed.
First, let’s take a look where the data of the Newsfeed will be stored.[Read more]
