comment Open SharePoint Online web with SharePoint Designer gives server error saying it has an old version?
Thank you thank you thank you! Same misleading error here (in late 2015!) - trying to use SPD to work around other SP bugs... it's endless! Does MS really want us to carry on promoting this stuff? At least we don't have to change registry or reinstall for this one... although now I see another weekly 900MB of updates which will again take ages and contribute zero to this issue or general productivity. Grrr.

comment Editing links URLs in a Office 365 Public Site
No Term name here either to fix this - likely as a result of changing name of page (within O365 itself, SP Designer says its a higher version yet won't update itself... sigh, endless issues again). It's 2015 now. So basic, so clunky - MS can't even pull off a CMS anymore, no wonder they've dropped Public Sites. Shame, why bother promoting O365 Sites?

comment SharePoint Foundation 2013 Document Management
@WilliamHumphreys it seems your question to "is SP Foundation an OOTB DMS" has been answered with details and after a week further additions seem unlikely. This is not an opinion forum (as per the help info) so please ask if further info required, otherwise selecting an answer would be nice to close.

comment SharePoint Foundation 2013 Document Management
Always wise to compare features and usability... DMS is definitely at the heart of SharePoint though and does work OOTB, even on free Foundation and without code or pulling apart. Codeless implementation to save hassle is probably better served on the fuller licenced edition - Office365 SP Online trials can make that easier and cheaper. Best of luck with the products and support!

comment Site collection locked & stucked in read only mode
@user21098 I'm afraid this method was def only brought into the SP2013 CU (not the original base 2013 RTM), so doubt if it exists at all in SP2010 (which you've just confirmed really - if you've applied all Service Packs). Am surprised a 2010 install has the same problem otherwise they'd be postings all over the place about the nightmare (but nothing surprises anymore!) - open up another case tagged 2010 with exact scenario to get responses and see if folk have. Best of luck!

comment Uncheck “Overwrite Existing Files” from document library upload form
No - because it's the upload.aspx page itself, it will apply right across the system. Your post didn't state you need it on a per-library basis (just that you had multiple libraries, like most folk), I don't know best way to achieve that, maybe you should open another Question specifically for that case, someone may know a good way through client script, event receiver etc.

comment Can we avoid clunky hiding of WebParts?
As suspected, it's awkward in this case because no matter if you hide first using Designer (not that you can very easily in SP2013 now) or Code, it has to be reset every user, so the code still runs. Best solution (apart from Audiences and possibly SPSecurityTrimmedControl which is also a little awkward) is as per Ali below to bypass the CreateChildControls in SP2010 or InitializeControl in SP2013. +1 for your suggestions and conf of behaviour Daniel.
