comment Build SharePoint 2013 solutions by simply copying the assemblies to your machine
Couldn't agree more Ryan! Although we'd hoped to "future-proof" our solutions now while we're still in the main development phase (as opposed to deploying 2010 solutions to our 2013 production tenant and then kicking off a separate migration project down the track). Also, we ideally want our application to inherit the new 2013 look 'n feel so we didn't want to run our sites in 2010 mode.

comment Dynamically registering JavaScript from within a sandbox web part
The question clearly states that JavaScript and CSS files need to registered DYNAMICALLY from within a web part (for the purposes of only loading them as part of the page that they're required on). The "worst case" scenario I described is having the files for EVERY web part being registered on the home page. Adding the JS and CS registrations to the master page would ensure this.

comment new Item should show next 3 months and year in drop down
In SharePoint Designer, browse to your list. In the "Forms" pane, right-click "EditForm.aspx" and select "Edit File in Advanced Mode". From here, you can write your JavaScript / jQuery function directly in the "PlaceHolderAdditionalPageHead" content placeholder. Alternatively, navigate to your list's edit form in the browser, then append "?toolpaneview=2" to the end of the URL and hit enter -- this will open the form in edit mode. From here, simply drop a content editor web part into the page and place your script in that.

comment Provision XSLTListViewWebPart with <AllUsersWebPart> or <View> and customize the XslLink
Hi Brian. Can you shed any light on a fix for this if you've found one? I'm also provisioning some XsltListViewWebParts to a page via a Module and can't seem to hook them up to my custom XSL file (which is deployed to the Style Library) using the XslLink property. I'm working with a sandbox solution so deploying the file to the _layouts folder unfortunately isn't an option.

comment SPLimitedWebPartManager throwing “File is not checked out” error on AddWebPart and DeleteWebPart
There are a lot of other bogus fixes on the web which claim to fix this problem, but thumbs up, this seems to be only one that does the trick.

I'm also concerned that this wouldn't satisfy the requirement to also show each item's originally / currently selected ReleaseMonth value? I've proposed an alternative solution which would solve this, so feel free to chime in.

comment Alert customization
Can you provide some more details -- like the line of code that is generating the exception, and the relevant lines from your SharePoint logs? Note: SharePoint often misleadingly displays an "access denied" page in the browser even when errors occur that have nothing to do with security! On the other hand though, if the "Access denied" message is appearing in your log files, then I'd say with certainty that it realy is a permissions issue. If all else fails, try elevate privelages or run the code as a different user (i.e. using impersonation or your farm admin accout).

comment Can the list view's XslLink property contain a web address?
Yes, all sites are within a single site collection. Unfortunately though, using the browser to hook-up my custom XSL isn't a viable option because it'0s used to render my custom blog template's home page and so it needs to be setup automatically when the site is being provisioned (we can't expect end users to manually execute some steps to brand their sites properly).

comment Can the list view's XslLink property contain a web address?
Hi Dave. If I manually copy my XSL to the filesystem on my dev machine everything works great, so there's no errors there. Obviously this won't be an option for me in prod as we have to deploy to SharePoint Online. I've also tried removing the space as you suggested, but still no luck. Plus -- I can't upload the XSL via the browser as it's part of a site template and so needs to be deployed automatically as part of the site provisioning process.

comment Difference between debug & release?
In what context? Compilation, performance, SharePoint scripts etc... If you put no effort into your questions I highly doubt you'll get any meaningful answers in return.
