SharePoint Manager is a SharePoint object model explorer. It enables you to browse every site on the local farm and view every property. It also enables you to change the properties (at your own risk). This is a very powerfull tool for developers that like to know what the SharePoint holds of secrets.

I've found .NET Reflector (now from RedGate) to be an indispensable tool when developing, and with SharePoint in particular. In some cases it has saved me from spinning wheels when it is clearly a "bug" or "feature" in the SP codebase, but it most cases it has just been invaluable from a learning perspective (oh, that's how that works!)

I believe you can accomplish what you want by adding some code to the property declaration like this: public string TextBox1 { get { if(!String.IsNullOrEmpty(_TextBox1)) { return _TextBox1; } else { return "My Default"; } } set {_TextBox1 = value;} } string _TextBoxl; To be honest there is so much information in your question it is ...

I'd suggest using PowerShell with SharePoint - there are tools, code libraries and a good book out there which could cover most of your requirements (& it'll be much cheaper too) : Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Command Builder SharePoint Management PowerShell scripts (CodePlex) Automating SharePoint 2010 with Windows PowerShell 2.0 (book)

A simple PowerShell script would do it. There's a MasterUrl and CustomMasterUrl property on the SPWeb object, so you could just do something simple like Get-SPSite | Get-SPWeb | % {"Site: " + $_.Url + " Master: "+ $_.MasterUrl} to list out the master for every web.

Microsoft Live Mesh is a great tool to handle all your other tools. I've set up a folder that I have all my tools in and then use Live Mesh to have these tools synchronized into my VM's and other machines. As soon as I add or update a tool, they are all "copied" to my other machines.

I've been trying the SEO IIS Extension from Microsoft and WinHTTrack, although my results are rather limited as we use Forms Based Authentication and neither of them do well with the pages under authentication. That's where I really want to be able to do some reporting, but the options look to be limited. Maybe I'll try my hand at hacking the CodePlex ...

I used Kivati on a global WCM roll-out. I also showed it in a talk at the European SharePoint Best Practices Conference. It's a cool tool - "repeater" concept is good for rolling out updates across large farms. However at the end of the day, it's just generating API code for you - and considering there's a learning curve and a SharePoint developer could just ...

I recently had somebody ask me something about identifying duplicate files. I was convinced this would be pretty easy to do in search, but could not find any way to globally identify duplicates and found that the Duplicates keyword property requires a specific item url. I ended up writing up a full blog post with all of my findings here: Finding Duplicate ...

Not a de-dup tool as such but a script that will allow you to get an inventory output to another source that you can query/filter to find duplicates: http://blog.falchionconsulting.com/index.php/2010/08/getting-an-inventory-of-all-sharepoint-documents-using-windows-powershell/ I've used this and found it reasonably handy. A developer could probably take ...
