I am very new to SharePoint but have a web development background. I know my way around HTML5, PHP, MYSQL etc.
I was recently introduced to sharePoint Designer and saw that I could build custom pages out of HTML that look a lot nicer than the default SharePoint Pages.
My one issue is I do not know how to incorporate a lot of the collaborative sharePoint Functionality.
I have figured out how to embed PowerPoint, Excel Word documents etc. There is an embed button which gives you some HTML to copy and paste...easy.
What I am trying to figure out how to do, is embed something like a Document library into my custom HTML page. This allow users to use my nicer looking pages and still upload, share and edit documents.
