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!

The latter, the AppPool name used when creating a SharePoint Web Application.

See my updated answer. Looks like the second version is working better without the issue you were facing.

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 ;-)

Did you also use a customized "results.aspx" page? That's the page I'm talking about.

Can you post your relevant .NET code? Would make it a lot easier for us to help.

IIRC, for IE8 you could try the MSFT proprietary filter property. See my updated answer.

comment How to use relative URL for image in Master Page?
Honestly, I have no idea why it fails on your side. Did you try the example included in the link I mentioned? Anyways, it looks like you already accepted another answer so I guess your issue is resolved.

comment Enable-SPFeature doesn't work, but activation via Site Settings does. Why?
In this case make sure all the resources you use in your code are accessible on the production machine. Sounds like there's something blocked.

Been there, tried it. Unfortunately both fail with the usual "Cannot retrieve the URL specified in the Content Link property. For more assistance, contact your site administrator."

comment Can a sandboxed WebPart access SPWeb.AllProperties
Thanks for the heads up, Amit. but since one of my requirements is to build accessible solutions (no matter if sandboxed or not), client-side JavaScript-based SharePoint 2013 Apps are not an option.

comment Can a sandboxed WebPart access SPWeb.AllProperties
Thanks! I forgot to put my external HDD into my travel bag hence I'll not be able to check that code until I'm back from my road trip, but it sounds like it'll be the solution. Though I'm not sure if the methods write to SPWeb.AllProperties or SPWeb.Propterties. Too bad I can't mark both replies as answer...

comment Can a sandboxed WebPart access SPWeb.AllProperties
Thanks for taking the time and running some test code for me, Fox. Much appreciated! The full trust proxy approach sounds like the way to go. Unfortunately, Office 365 doesn't allow a full trust proxy (FTP) farm deployment and I guess other SharePoint hosting companies don't either. Well, well, back to the drawing board. Marked it as answer even tho FTP isn't an option on Office 365.
