Here is Microsoft solution: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2752600 Basically, start the browser as a different user. Another solution (but dirty) is to edit the Welcome.aspx file and add a control: <SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate runat="server" ID="ID_LoginAsDifferentUser" Text="<%$Resources:wss,personalactions_loginasdifferentuser%>" ...

Fun stuff, I was checking this site since I stopped answering SO SharePoint questions for a few years now and this was the first thing in the list, a very interesting oversight during the "host web Feature" option for CustomActions. What a detailed investigation! Luckily I have a solution for you. WEB STANDARDS TO THE RESCUE CHO CHOO With Microsoft ...

Nearly all my SharePoint 2013 development are done on my trusty Lenovo Thinkpad T410S which has a Core I5 (first gen) and is thus limited to 8gb ram but has a sweet SSD which helps a lot since everything is using the disk simulatenously. For development purpose, it's a all in one server (domain controller, SQL Server, SharePoint Farm) running Windows Server ...

You need to add a JSLink to the fields themselfs (this means you need to either update the existing fields (by code or by powershell, harder in Office 365) or create your own field definition) In that .js file you need to specify a number of methods that will override the standard functions, including View, DisplayForm, EditForm, NewForm. Note that this ...

Yes, there are fundamental differences between SharePoint-hosted and cloud-hosted apps. A SharePoint-hosted app may provision basic resources into its app web such as HTML/CSS/JS files, site column/content type/list definitions, etc. Under no circumstances can server-side code run within a SharePoint-hosted app. You can run server-side code in a ...

In SharePoint a special content type exists that is called "Link to a document" and can be added to any document library. You need first enable management of content types on a library and the you can add it to the library. Once this has been done you can link to any file based on an http link.

Does SharePoint 2013 have support for responsive design or do you have to create it from stratch? No, there is no built in out of the box support for responsive design in SharePoint 2013. Responsive design is different from Mobile friendly design, and as such I think it's best to do your page layout and not rely on a framework. Others feel different, ...

Worked for me: server 2k12, SQL 2k12, SharePoint 2k13. This was done on Hyper-V I did it as a single server installation, joining the server to my existing domain, used the full installation option (default) as opposed to the stand alone server. Beyond that, I accepted the defaults as it's the first time I've played with this edition. As for Perms, I ...

Virtual Server doesn't support X64 guests. So running Win 7 your best options are most likely: VHD Boot VM Ware VM Ware is nice because you may have other things running on the machine at the same time, but be aware of the Hardware and software requirements for SharePoint 2013 Preview, which states 8GB Ram for foundation, 24GB for Server, so unless you ...

In addition to traditional web parts still being supported (in either full-trust or sandboxed solutions) as Simon mentions, you can develop new app parts in an app for SharePoint 2013. An app part is like a web part, and in fact is also made available to users in a host web's web part gallery. Users add app parts to pages the same way they would add web ...

As James mentions it's not a valuable comparison as it's two completely different tools. No "SharePoint is not a database" and no "SQL is not a collaboration, document management, ... platform". But to answer your question only point 7 and 8 has been changed (fixed) in SP2013. For more information: Here is my take on the eight points: Primary and foreign ...

As with most job titles this is very depend of the company in question. When "developing" solutions to business problems using SharePoint the following comes into play (with a lot of extra work not included in this list): Figure out what the business problem is Find which part of it should be solved by IT if any Figure out if SharePoint should be part of ...

unfortunately, afaik (& tested) the REST services are only working for authenticated users. You'll need to create a bridge service calling with credentials the native ones if you want to provide that functionality but since you're authenticating your request, are you sure it's not an authentication issue ? Does the target username / password combination ...

Doesn't seem so. I just tried and got the following message Microsoft SharePoint Designer cannot be used to edit web sites on servers different from Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013. To edit these sites, you need to use the same version of SharePoint Designer which matches the version of Microsoft SharePoint Server.

Try the following powershell code, $site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://Server:1111/") $web = $site.OpenWeb("/") $resultsPath = "Pages/default.aspx" $page = $web.GetFile($resultsPath) $page.CheckOut() $wpm = $web.GetLimitedWebPartManager($resultsPath, [System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.PersonalizationScope]::Shared) $wpm.WebParts | ft ...

Using a CSS only approach, add the following CSS inside the content editor webpart or add it to your custom css. <style type="text/css"> div.ms-promlink-body { height: 100px; } div.ms-tileview-tile-root { height: 110px !important; width: 110px !important; ...

The log file should get you the path that SharePoint unsuccessfully tries to resolve. Try adding "~sitecollection" first in the ScriptLink like: <SharePoint:ScriptLink language="javascript" name="~sitecollection/custom/jquery-1.10.2.min.js" runat="server" Localizable="false" /> but this will only work inside the "the_new_osce_portal" Site ...

Since respond.js is a presentational script, its placement within your HTML can dramatically impact page performance and execution time, especially on less capable browsers with slower JS engines. This module takes the guesswork out of placement and puts the script where it will be most effective. Optimal location is in the head after your CSS but before ...

Yes you can do that. Thank you to ASP.NET 4 and Managed Navigation this is very easy to do on SharePoint 2013.

Installing SharePoint 2013 on Windows 8 is simply NOT supported But, instead Windows 8 is the provided with ability to run Hyper-V in the client O/S and hence you can easily install the SharePoint Server 2013.

Apologies if this doesn't directly answer your questions, but I think the main point to be made here is that SQL databases and Microsoft SharePoint solve two completely different issues. Can you store documents and collaborate with people using SQL out of the box? Can you find colleagues with similar skills, interests who have uploaded documents you are ...

James is so right, it's not SharePoint vs SQL Server, it's a matter of using the right tool for the right business needs but to go deeper in these assumptions Cascading Delete / Primary & Foreign Keys are available since SP2010 and handled through built-in features like : Unique Column policy Joins between lists Projected Fields Relational ...

Wael actually had the correct answer. Here is the gist of what needs to be done for packaging a Page Layout: Using Visual Studio, you can create a new Module and add your page layout to that file. Then, in the elements.xml file for that Module, here is what I typically use: <Module Name="PageLayouts" Url="_catalogs/masterpage"> <File ...

You can use Sharepoint Client Object Model for this.

I had the same problem today. I compared the project files with an older version. In my case the Package directory (with the files Package.package and Package.Template.xml) was missing. After copying this directory back from the older version of the project and modifying the csproj file to include the references to the package directory, the error solved ...

I would not advice to edit the Seatle.master. Instead I'd advice you to just take a copy of it and rename + edit the copy. In that way, in case anything goes wrong, you still have a solid fallback masterpage. Why some may advice to edit the html version, that is to support the Design Manager - But that method is primarily opinion-based. Regarding your ...

From the example you have supplied it seems that you only need to use POST if you are using CAML queries. You can use a simple GET if you use the OData querying method see OData in SharePoint 2013 with jQuery and SharePoint 2013 – CRUD on List Items Using REST Services & jQuery for fuller explanations and some simple examples. See MSDN - Use OData query ...
