comment Provider Hosted MVC application hosted outside Sharepoint IIS, find current Sharepoint User
Your web site is a completely separate application and as such knows nothing of SharePoint - hence no context. You will not be able to use the server object model in this case. You'll need to use CSOM or REST to communicate with SharePoint.

comment C# - Creating new SharePoint user in .Net Membership provider
Probably. I would find a tutorial on EF and see if that's the direction you want to go. If you're more comfortable with ADO.NET or some other data access technology, you can forget the EF stuff and just wire up that stored procedure in the technology of your choice.

comment C# - Creating new SharePoint user in .Net Membership provider
It's the class generated by the Entity Framework wizard. For example, if you create an EF model against the Northwind DB, you'll get a class called "NorthwindEntities". In my case above I named my database "Membership".

comment Keep getting correlation-id errors on Lists when creating SharePoint online site using CSOM
Site collections take a few minutes to spin up. Could it be possible that you're hitting the site before everything is provisioned?

comment An admin user cannot perform context.ExecuteQuery()
This is going to be a tough one to diagnose in a Q/A format, but here's what I would suggest: post a condensed code sample, with only enough code to reproduce the issue. All that XML-writing stuff in the stack trace is probably not germane to the issue and only makes troubleshooting more difficult. Also, you can Fiddle CSOM requests from PowerShell - have you tried that? Maybe the ExecuteQuery failure message could yield a clue. telerik.com/fiddler

comment Help with REST $filter $select option
You might want to try using the $expand operator when querying against lookup data. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/dn198245.aspx

comment Efficiently get a collection of all users following a list in SP2013 using CSOM or SSOM?
This is really more of an idea than an answer, so I'll just leave this here...I suspect you might need to loop through all users to get what you're looking for. You might consider writing a timer job (assuming on-prem) that runs overnight, and dumping your results to a list or some other data store. How many users do you have, by the way?

You want to do a calculation on some numbers? You don't need SharePoint for that.

I see your problem. You're logged in a "System Account"

comment Create new form with Sharepoint 365 Small Business Edition
What exactly do you mean, you "lost it"? How did that happen? Did you lose the "Add new Item" link? When you try to access the new form, what do you see? What permissions do you have on the list?

comment Site Column Default value not displaying
Were the lists created before the default value was set on the site column, or after?

comment Feature “SharePoint Server Publishing” disables jQuery
jQuery and publishing works fine for me...You're sure the sites are using the correct master page? Try putting a visual element on the master just as a sanity check.

comment The users can not change their passwords in AD-SharePoint 2013
You don't have the CodePlex solution set up properly, or it just doesn't work. File an issue with them.

comment SharePoint 2013: Using JSOM, get a list of all sites user has access too
Not possible. If you need to use JS I would suggest using the Search Rest API

comment Can one develop a simple product order system in Sharepoint?
This is more of an architectural question and there's no single best way do do it. The best approach for you would depend a lot on your technical abilities, and how fancy it needs to be. You could whip something up in a day using no code whatsoever, using lists and maybe some slightly customized forms, or you could spend two months and build a full-on custom solution.

comment Sandbox Solution: Why won't it update when published?
Also, make sure your new content is actually included in the package. Open up the "package" node in Solution Explorer and check that your stuff is in there.

comment Sandbox Solution: Why won't it update when published?
No, this is not how it works in my experience. make doubly sure you are publishing to the location you think you are. Delete the already present wsp on the file system and re-publish. If the new wsp doesn't show up, you are publishing to a different location.
