comment Jslink field run function after field is rendered
Well, OnPostRender is an event which doesn't allow to pass parameters. So, you would need to hardcode the fieldname.

comment Setting an SPSite to read-only from Application Page
Still looking into this. I remember a change MSFT made back in SP2010 preventing changes on SPFarm and SPWebApplication if derived from SPSite or SPWeb. This issue sounds very similar even if you are trying to change a SPSite property. Just an idea, I'll keep you posted about my findings.

comment Setting an SPSite to read-only from Application Page
AFAIK, yes the system account should be FarmAdmin. Another idea is that special content DB permissions are required but missing. Can you try to run your code from an application page deployed under Central Admin?

I'd some more code to check what account is used with the TimerJob and also what role/permissions it has. I'm starting to believe that FarmAdmin permissions are required.

<script type="text/javascript"></script> might cause SP to puke either. Try to add at least one line of valid JS inside like var x = 0;

Sorry, your original post used $(document).ready(function() { implying that you use jQuery. See my updated answer.

comment JavaScript is breaking my theme in SharePoint 2013
When I turn off JavaScript in Firefox for testing purpose, the background image doesn't load (because SP2013 requires JS to apply the background image) but the basic theme colors are applied, hence I asked for a screen capture to shed more light into this issue.

comment Please help on Ribbon bar style
If I'm not mistaken SharePointDefaultStylesCOREV4.css is a custom file neither part of SP 2010 nor 2013, hence I recommended to remove parts of it.

comment Can somebody post the HTML source of SharePoint Server 2013 SP1 on-premises suitebar
That's OK, all I needed was the HTML structure and CSS classs & IDs for customizing. I'll doublecheck on the weekend if SP1 has changed the structure or only the links & titles once I"m back at home having access to my VM, but your snippet is fine to get me started. Thanks again!!

comment Can somebody post the HTML source of SharePoint Server 2013 SP1 on-premises suitebar
Although that's not SP2013 with SP1 because it has "SkyDrive" and "Newsfeed" instead of "Yammer" and "OneDrive" but it's almost what I'm looking for. Thanks!

comment Paste button disabled, when accessing Wiki from OSX
Well, as I mentioned: IIRC (if I remember correctly). It appears my memory is wrong and Firefox v22 already implemented the clipboard API. I was under the impression that it will come with Firefox v23. Google Chrome might probably also have it implemented in v27. Looks like I have to run some tests over the weekend ;-)
