FREE WEBINAR – SharePoint 2010 Public Facing Sites

Hope to see you there. 4/11/2011 Update: At the request of some followers ShareSquared has provided a link to the recorded version of the webinar. Now if you missed something ......

SharePoint 2010 - FSSPUsernameFilter.dll failed to load
The other evening I had the unfortunate pleasure of having to rebuild a client's SharePoint farm. Generally, SharePoint is not unstable. Unfortunately, the original consultant built the farm with one service account, which made things dicey. Murphy, of some strange law fame, stepped in and presented a situation in which that service account password had to be changed. As you would expect, the administrator changed the password. Since the administrator was newer to SharePoint he didn't realize the ......

SharePoint 2010, Cloud, and the Constitution
The other evening an article on the Red Tap Chronicles caught my eye. The article written by Bob Sullivan titled "The Constitutional Issues of Cloud Computing" was very interesting in regards to the direction most of the technical world is going. We all have been inundated about utilizing cloud computing for reasons of price, availability, or even scalability; but what Bob brings up is a whole separate view of why a business might not want to move toward the cloud for services or applications. The ......

PublishingWeb.ExcludeFromNavigation Missing
So recently I have had to make the transition from the SharePoint 2007 codebase to SharePoint 2010 codebase. Needless to say there hasn't been much difficulty in the changeover. However in a set of code that I was playing around with and transitioning I did find one change that might cause some pain to others out there that have been programming against the PublishingWeb object in the Microsoft.SharePoint.Publis... namespace. The 2007 snippet of code that work just fine in 2007 looks like: using ......

Are you ready for SharePoint 2010?
With SharePoint's next release on the horizon (May 12th) many of my clients and colleagues are starting to ramp up for the upcoming tidal wave of functionality. Microsoft has been doing a terrific job of getting as much information out in the public lime light as possible over the last few months and I think that will definitely pay off with regards to acceptance of the new version of SharePoint. However, there are still some aspects of the new platform that are a little murky. Aspects such as: "Should ......
