Have been creating custom tiles on a SharePoint 2016 on premise farm with feature pack 2 and February 2018 CU installed.
This is the code used (see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/administration/custom-tiles-in-sharepoint-server-2016)
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue Enable-SPFeature -Identity CustomTiles -Url https://url.of.webapplication.tld -Force
So on root page there was a list "Custom Tiles" created. Added the first item and waited 48h, several IISRESET, several times cleaning browser cache, trying new clients never used for SharePoint before. No change.
Ok, hours of investigation and tries like this:
$w = Get-SPWebApplication url.of.webapplication.tld $w.Properties.CustomTilesListHostUrl = "url.of.webapplication.tld" $w.Update()
Question: Is my installation broken? How to troubleshoot? My Custom Tiles NewForm.aspx shows a column:
$Resources:spscore,CustomTilesList_Feature_TileSwitch; (see picture below)
