It is correct that Microsoft have removed the SharePoint public sites. Instead they suggest to get a public website from a third part provider. Right now they suggest either GoDaddy or WiX from the Office 365 admin center. The official announcement from Microsoft states the following: As part of the evolution of the Office 365 service, we periodically ...

I think http://www.topsharepoint.com/ has a good list.

I happen to have a great exposure working with the Content Deployment in an authoring and production topology: Authoring and production farm The two-farm topology is a standard Internet site topology, and it is typical of topologies that are used to publish an Internet site. It includes two server farms: one to host the authoring site collection along with ...

** This feature is now deprecated please use Azure to host websites ** ** Please read the KB Article here for more information ** You can indeed create public site collections in SharePoint Online as you have done. Branding is another kettle of fish however and requires quite a lot of work. Please watch this course on SharePoint Online branding as a ...

I would think that a 3 stage environment would make a lot of sense if you were developing an internet. The staging environment gives you complete control over the page authoring environment. As you indicated you have a separate set of permissions for the users involved with authoring. In addition, when the pages are approved in the staging environment, ...

you can add security trimmed on custom masterpage which only an authorised user will be able see the ribbon 1) Open your SharePoint master page 2) Locate this line: <div id="s4-ribbonrow" class="s4-pr s4-ribbonrowhidetitle"> 3) Change it to: <div id="s4-ribbonrow" class="s4-pr s4-ribbonrowhidetitle" style="display:none"> 4) Now find the ...

There is no supported way to redirect your public SharePoint site to another URL. Instead, you can manage DNS to make your public SharePoint site listen to requests for your domain - www.abc.com. Unfortunately this is not what you ask for.

This has probably nothing to do with SharePoint. Are you sure you're using the last version of bootstrap ? I had the same issue one time, and I updated the fonts directory provided by bootstrap. Seemed like Chrome was having a problem with woff2 font files, I can't really remember. Edit : I remember now, it was a problem with IIS, I had to update my ...

Definitely possible as long as you are covered on licensing aspects. You can set the appropriate permissions on your internal web and configure your Alternate Access Mapping correctly and have the site accessible from outside or Alternatively you can build a simple asp.net control that exposes the document library via some custom work done by you. Mind ...

The SharePoint 2010 is build in a "special" way, so the entire design (CSS/HTML) and javascript is dependent on each other for everything to work fluently. I'm assuming you are using a custom masterpage, since this problem hardly ever occurs when using the default v4.master. The structure of your masterpage after the ribbon should always contain the ...

1 - Do we know if Volume Licensing customers with Software Assurance (SA) will be able to download SharePoint 2013 on-premise through the Volume Licensing Service Center? Can they roll-out SP 2013 as Intranet and Public facing? Yes as of Novemeber 1st https://www.microsoft.com/Licensing/servicecenter/default.aspx 2 - For customers without Software ...

The current public website on Office 365 is frustrating, because you cannot easily use dynamic content as you would do with regular SharePoint sites. This is going to change with the next version, so my first advice would be to wait for a couple months if you can. Apart from this limitation, I don't think there's anything complicated about the public site, ...

The advantages of multiple instances are limited in the scenario you've given. You are correct in what you're implying - that you could simply have one farm, with no content deployment. Editors could see unpublished content, and other users see published. Or, as the document you linked to says, you could have one instances and deploy to a different site ...

The Pages library is of a special type in SharePoint (template id 850), and most of the Publishing infrastructure is hardwired to it. It is possible to change the path but not without some custom development and tweaking. Removing it completely so that the pages appear to be at the root might not be possible. Another (probably much simpler) option is to use ...

Definitely look into URL Rewriting. It does exactly that.

There is no way to accomplish this in a way that suits your goal. SharePoint will always add its CSS to each page. You could remove it client-side, but that doesn't solve your issue of reducing page size. For public-facing sites, I have used Aptimizer (now owned by Riverbed): http://www.riverbed.com/us/products/stingray/stingray_aptimizer.php Tools like ...

I don't think it's 'impossible', because there is the <SharePoint:CssLink runat="server" Version="4"/> control in the master page which you can conditionally replace with other kinds of references to stylesheets you need on your publishing site.


2

You need to make a custom control which inherits CssLink, and in that you need to make some logic which prevents the COREV4.css to be loaded based on some condition. public partial class CustomCssLink : CssLink { protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e) { // Logic here } }

If you can live without variations, or make use of the Content Search Web Part, I'd go for SharePoint Online. CSWP does (by description) almost the same thing, but uses a different source: Search Index. Variations Variations, translations. Syncs content from a source location to other locations by audience (SharePoint Server Only) Custom ...

From comments: That means jQuery.fn.tab is undefined, which means the jQuery version you are working on does not have Bootstrap tabs appended to it. This could be the result of many things, such as not including the bootstrap script, or order of scripts, or having several versions of jQuery on the same page. There are several ways to get around this, such ...

The masterpage for the public website already comes with a search box, which you should reuse on your own masterpage. If I search for content using the existing masterpage or my own (based on the out-of-the-box one) I get the expected search result including not only documents and list item, but also pages. Start by copying the masterpage on your public ...

There are many variations you can take with this - and really you need to consider more than just your content. For true separation: I would have a dedicated DC to manage service accounts. I would break up my DMZ behind firewall contexts with a reverse proxy publishing SharePoint at the edge. proxy/firewall -- SP Server -- Firewall -- SQL/DC For true ...

Their is no OOTB way to convert the Public site into team site as both using the different template. Now two things you can do. Create a team site and move all the content manually Use the 3rd party tool to convert it. you can try Sharegate, Metalogix.

I have done some extensive research on this topic a few weeks ago because I had a similar requirement on the project I worked on. Even though you can setup crawl rules that exclude subsites, you cannot setup conditions to take page X is not published into account. What I ended up doing was creating a TimerJob which ran a couple of times a day (based on how ...

A few months later I've cracked this myself. It seems there is a "Size" Managed Property available that represents the size of a page/item. So on subsites for which their Welcome Page is unpublished this Size property is set to 0 (zero) (presumably because the page could not be crawled). So in order to prevent unpublished subsites from appearing in the ...

No - there is nothing like this out of the box. You can develop something like this depending on what you need to push. If the environments are the same, you can rely on the export / import methods for merging content, but that wont activate features for you. If content is the same and there is no threat to overwriting production, you can move the ...

You can pretty much control the permissions for drafts and unpublished items using library settings: Go to the Pages -> Library Settings -> Versioning Settings -> Enable major and minor versions both. and for -> Draft Item security select the following option to enable viewing of draft and pending pages: Select any user who can read items

As I understood, you need to redirect users to specific location. I implemented similar functionality using SharePoint audiences before. If you have any attribute detecting users from 'Mary Washington', 'Virginia Tech' and 'Radford', you can create separate SharePoint audiences for them. For example you may have 'Company' property for each user profile, ...
