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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

Definitely look into URL Rewriting. It does exactly that.

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 ...

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 Editors could see unpublished content, and other users see published.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 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, ...

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 starting point. http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/Office-365-Developer-Training-Kit-Labs/Session-8-Part-1-SharePoint-Online-Branding For ...

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 ...

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 } }


2

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.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

According to Website feature comparison table Content Query Web Part is not supported in SharePoint Online Web Site. But, you could consider the following approach: import CQWP web part into SharePoint Online Web Site (export it first, for example, from private site collection) Add exported web part on the page (see the figure below) Result The ...

There are couple of things to think before to design the public site. Many companies in industry using the Intranet sites and then publish few content to public using Content deployment. In this case you have two farms( authoring & publishing). people can edit the stuff at authoring site then published to the public site. everybody having read access to ...

I think you have to check in the css file. But if you change the master page with css files you have to publish a major version or apply the changes from the design manager in site settings.

Yes you can, its the app that you created that requires access to app content.

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, ...

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

It sounds like a CSS/HTML bug. If it's only showing on that one page, it could be a CSS margin issue. Without a screenshot and/or snippets of the applicable CSS/HTML it'd be pretty difficult for anyone to assist you.

Using public facing sites could be really frustrating, the available tools to add content to the site are very limited and the available design seems to be from the last century. You can dig into the designer and change the master page and add manual content however you can blow your site very easily. Other approach is use one of the available platforms to ...

SharePoint 2013 has excellent features directed towards web content management, so apps doesn't really come to play here (unless you have some integration tasks you want to do). On top of the (lacking) WCM features we not have support for nicer URLS (good for SEO), alot better support for content publishing from intranet or staging environment, HTML5 ...

I think the list may be corrupt with wrong settings, etc. Couple of things to look into - A). Create a new (default) view of the list - using SP Designer B). Delete the old (default) view of the list. If above still fails, then C.) Forcefully delete the list using STSADM: stsadm.exe -o forcedeletelist -url or POSH Script: $fooweb = Get-SPWeb fooUrl ...

The unfortunate answer is "it depends on the browser and the settings": Safari on iOSBy default Safari rejects all cookies, regardless. The user can change this in the settings from "Never accept cookies" to "From visited" or "Always". Updating iOS reset this setting back to "Never". Opera MobileBy default cookies are accepted, but can be turned off. Opera ...

I've worked on a project that used Magento in the past and can definitely recommend it as a commerce platform. It has many community extensions and lots of resources/ knowledge available for new starters. I was very impressed by how easy it was to manage customers and the product catalogue etc. Now for the downside... We didn't necessarily integrate it with ...
