You could read Heather Solomons post on rounded corners. Its for SP2007 so classes are probably different, but still it might help you http://www.heathersolomon.com/blog/articles/brandsppart3a.aspx Not sure what you mean with "file which constructs chrome type", but you define the chrome type in the web part, where you can set it to: Default A ...

Those messages are normal and not related to errors. SharePoint is just logging how long the various jobs took to execute in case you want to run diagnostics on it. Here is a more complete explanation: What does "Leaving Monitored Scope" mean in the log file?

I would look into the Content Database not being accessible. From Central Admin I would look at the status of the content database as a starting point. You can do that from Application Management under the Database section of options. How are the services looking from the server. Do they look healthy? Might want to check the app pool status under IIS.

I was involved in optimizing a poorly-performing SharePoint 2007 site for an international airline. I wrote an optimzation checklist for SharePoint sites as a result of the work we did - it mainly considers thing from a dev standpoint, but optimization is definitely one of those '360 degree' things. I also think Aptimize looks great - I'd love to try it ...

The answer to the first part of the question is you don't need any of them if you are prepared to fully customize the HTML and CSS, and do your own web parts and other controls. There are two problems here; first you need to make your public-facing site so it doesn't need the huge JavaScript and CSS files that are part of the SharePoint UI. You will ...

Don't forget to tune your IIS and use compression techniques for (at least) static files. This will lower the used bandwidth. You can also add http headers and allow caching of these files, on client/proxies, which reduces hits on the server. On a side note it's worth mentioning that if you use jQuery (which is very popular nowadays in the SP world), you ...

If you haven't already done so, you may also need to add the dbcreator and securityadmin server roles to your user in SQL Server. Have you looked at the SharePoint logs (in the "12 hive") and the Windows Event Viewer on both servers already? They are helpful in diagnosing configuration issues.

Kinda, sorta, your question might be somewhat analogous to "does a Bulldozer help me plow my backyard vegetable garden..." a new WFE might still be overkill and may not cut down as much memory use as you'd like. A few things to look at first: How about just a simple RAM upgrade? How many application pools do you have running on your WFE? Remember each app ...

Possibility 1: Firewall Rules Double check your firewall settings in all the servers. A very basic connectivity test would be like - If your SQL Server is running on port 1433 , please do a telnet from K2 Server and the WFE Server to the SQL Server on port 1433. Another possibility is if you are using a custom webpart with connectivity to sql based on ...

Did you checked and updated your AAM accordingly - very important to keep these updated!! If you used FQDN before and you pass to IP-based navigation requires to update AAM. When removing the server, did you actually remove it from Farm or just remove it from the Load Balancing? Try using the Configuration Wizard when removing server from farm. C:\Marius

Use the Application Page template in Visual Studio 2010. That should inherit from the master page and all the SharePoint look and feel should be there automatically. When it creates that item in Visual Studio, you should have a lot of that markup already available in the page, no? Some people create Site Pages by creating an Application page, and then ...

Double check the location of themeurl, fontschemeurl!!! It must be placed under /_catalogs/theme/15 <Field Name="ThemeUrl">~sitecolletion/_catalogs/theme/15 .... </field> <Field Name="FontSchemeUrl">~sitecolletion/_catalogs/theme/15 .... </field>

The NLB "heartbeat" is just broadcast TCP/IP packets over the network, so it doesn't really check for actual availability of the site or services. If you require a more complex heartbeat you'll have to look into other load balancing solutions. I'm no expert on it but you have F5, Cisco and other hardware load balancers that will allow you to do this.

If you look at Topologies for SharePoint 2013 (streamlined ones), you find that the least fault tolerant setup is two servers, combined front ends and application servers (batch processing servers), and a database server. I've seen this setup on 2010 solutions, and it's quite limited when working with 7000 users. But this gives advantage over 1 WFE and 1 ...

The following assumes SP2010. You would be 100% safe assuming that a DIV element with a webpartid attribute is the body container for the web part. If you want to find the starting point for a webpart (i.e. the chrome), look for table elements with a class attribute of s4-wpTopTable.

I have been able removed about 17 SharePoint JavaScript requests for anonymous users using the technique by Chris O'Brien removing the script references included in HttpContext.Current.Items["sp-scriptlinks"] I placed the control at the bottom of the page to be able to remove more files: <custom:SuppressScriptsForAnonymousUsers runat="server" ...

Well it looks like most of the online resources I know about have been covered here already, so I won't repeat them. However, one that I didn't see that you should check out once you've done all the SharePoint and IIS optimization but still need to get a little bit more: http://aptimize.com It's a pretty good, low-touch (ie. you don't have to change code ...

Recently there's been a lot of articles about optimizing SharePoint performance (mostly because so many new sites are coming online using it). One of the main ones can be found here. Others can be found via a quick search. Use the same techniques you would on any site (move javascript to bottom of page, use CSS image sprites, etc.) to get more performance. I ...
