I've seen this before when creating composed looks...No idea what causes it though.

comment Version Conflict issue with JavaScript Client Object Model code
I took a closer look at the way we did it on a previous project, and we actually re-queried the list item and fetched the owshiddenversion that way. I'd like to get the solution posted up here, but I need to decouple some client-specific logic and it may be awhile before I get to that. I think we did it that way for expediency but I'm sure there's a way to guess what the version may be.

comment Version Conflict issue with JavaScript Client Object Model code
I'm not sure...I've never used RefreshLoad. And the documentation on it does not seem very helpful either. I had this situation once before but I was using asmx/SPServices and I used the approach above.

Not sure I understand all the downvotes. Are beginner level questions not welcome here?

comment SP2013 Site Definition "file dialog view not working properly
I've abandoned custom list definitions because they're just too flaky. That said, it looks like you're missing some CSS. Try Fiddling the two requests. Does anything look different? telerik.com/fiddler

comment SharePoint 2010 execute custom code after Site collection is created from custom site definition
"WebProvisioned" only fires for subwebs, never for root webs of new site collections. What you want is a feature stapler. I'd write a more detailed answer on that but won't have the time to do that today. Do a web search for feature staplers and that should get you started. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/…

Just as a fun aside, the question is a classic example of an "XY Problem". meta.stackexchange.com/questions/66377/what-is-the-xy-problem

It's a Microsoft update. There's nothing you can do about it. It's happening for everyone.

comment Sharepoint 2013, Programmatic deployment
another point against custom XML list definitions: they will throw nonsensical errors and are impossible to debug.

comment How can I mask my url in Office 365?
this doesn't answer the question. The asker wants to know how to remove the "sharepoint.com" from the hostname in the address bar.

comment Customer log in without being registered to SharePoint
Try explaining what a Live ID is to your grandmother. I know it's difficult for technical people to visualize the difficulties end users have with concepts that come naturally to us, but that's often the case in the wild.

comment Customer log in without being registered to SharePoint
Yes. By default, when you click "Share" to add users, they get put in the members group by default. But if you click "Show options" in the share dialog you can select a group to put them into. And once they accept the invitation and log in they can be treated as regular SharePoint users just like everyone else. I'd suggest trying it out using a personal MS account and getting familiar with the process.

comment How do I recreate a certain SP2010 page on SharePoint 2013?
Maybe the upgrade is a good time to re-think your solution architecture. Do you really need a new page for every meeting? Could you just use lists to store your discussion and agenda data, and surface that data, filtered to the meeting in question via query string, on a single dashboard page? It would save you a ton of work in the long run.
