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.

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!

@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.

protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e) { if ( (!SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.IsSiteAdmin) && HelperFunctions.IsUserType("Approver", SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser)) { base.OnInit(e); InitializeControl(); } }

Thanks for this Ali - you're right!! I gave up on that idea when it fell over bypassing itself and MS advisory services didn't seem keen, but tried it properly and it does cleanly bypass the object creation without error in it's own control. Much cleaner and faster indeed, thanks for pushing it!

comment Can we avoid clunky hiding of WebParts?
did that before - so you're saying that if you set them hidden there first rather than depend on my code, they will never actually load their own code? I'll give it a shot, but in my experience the Designer setting is irrelevant because once the code hides them, they're hidden in future anyway (exactly the same as if hidden by the Designer). But if hiding them does stop any running of their code, it's not as bad as I thought (so home page running like a lame dog for some other reason - it always shows the 2013 "working on it" twice too!). Will test with debug trace on monday!

comment Can we avoid clunky hiding of WebParts?
Thanks for conf Daniel - am doing your 2 and 3 fine but just want to not load the webpart rather than "load and hide". Clients want to UAT the basics before committing cash for functions, but this basic grind is killing it. So can you load WebParts programmatically instead of inserting them onto page? Is that what you mean by 1, as I'm not sure how to do that and if it will truly avoid loading them.
