comment how to delete duplicate values from a list
Wouldn't it be simpler to check for dupes before adding the list item, rather than running a workflow after the fact to clean them up?

comment How to merge multiple lookup fields?
So you have to edit multiple list items in Categories every time a new food is added? You still want the lookup to be on the foods list. It can be a multi-lookup.

comment SharePoint Online Document Library: Create new document from custom templates
You "guess that will happen before the end of 2014"? Do you have a source for that? I have a client that is extremely frustrated with this "feature" and if MS will provide a fix this year I will not waste my time building one.

sorry, premature enter button hit. The other option is to do some sort of redirect to a new page where your second function executes, using the Source parameter. sympmarc.com/2009/10/20/…

comment Web template deployment of a custom default page using features
can you navigate directly to the custom home page? If so, what do you see? If the page is not set as the default home page then possibly the web property didn't take. Easiest way to check this is, if you have server access, use SharePoint Manager. You can also get them via SharePoint designer.

comment Javascript Client Object Model Update List Items (only some items updating)
First off, you should not use the for..in looping construct to iterate collections in JavaScript. It does not do what you think it does. Use a plain old for loop instead.

comment Making checked out documents visible to all users
no, because the checking in is what makes it visible. Well, you could make everyone site collection admins...that would solve that problem but create a bunch more :)
