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.

comment new Item should show next 3 months and year in drop down
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.

comment Programmatically add publishing page in sandbox solution?
I've already got the deletions working fine. However in order to provision the pages again AFTER the existing files have been deleted, it needs to be done programmatically in the feature receiver too. I realise I could use two seperate features (one to delete the files programmatically, and a second feature to declaratively reprovision the pages) -- however that seems a little unecessary!

comment Programmatically add publishing page in sandbox solution?
Hi C. Marius. I already have modules in my solution which deploy publishing pages to all my new sites, however in this particular case I am creating a feature which needs to delete and recreate the pages of an existing site each time it's deactivated and reactivated. Declarative modules do not support this behaviour (which is confirmed at the bottom of Waldek's post that you linked) -- when a feature containing a module is reactivated, the page is never overwritten, instead multiple copies of the web parts are added to the zones / page. So I'm stuck with using a feature receiver...
