Workflows The last option I'd go with is the workflow: workflows are slow, buggy, do not work at all when there's a lot of them running, complicated to debug, and most of all they completely disturb the users since they're visible in the UI (with a messy UI). Why would a background task be visible in the UI? In addition, conceptually, your task is not a ...

I exactly had the same problem. After some investigation and trying out different approches I finally found the solution: 1) Do NOT place the @Register-statement before the DOCTYPE declaration 2) Instead you can place it directly within your Custom ASP.NET Markup Snippet - just before the usage of your custom control Hope that helps!

Possible uses of hiding (closing) web parts can be if the web part is creating problems, is broken/unusable, or behaving badly. Or if the web part isn't needed anymore (like for an annual survey, only done once a year during May), you can hide it when it is not needed anymore. If the web part is not needed at all, and you do not plan on re-using it, you ...

You are working with CSS3, this is only supported from Internet Explorer version 9. For older versions of IE you need to have a fallback solution. One of the fallback is CSS3 Pie. More information can be found here: http://css3pie.com/ http://css3pie.com/about/ It requires you to add and reference an additional file (pie.htc) to your environment. ...

As already mentioned in another answer, Internet Explorer, up to and including version 8, does not provide support for any CSS3 based styling. While Internet Explorer 9 comes with limited CSS3 support (like border-radius and box-shadow, but neither text-shadow nor background gradients) it would require to change your masterpage as mentioned in another ...

The header and footer (the chrome) of SharePoint and most Asp.Net websites is defined in a master page. For SharePoint 2013 this is by default the seattle.master. My tip is to create your own master page by taking a copy of the Seattle.master, or using a Delegate control to insert your control. Create SharePoint master page : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-...

Making a SharePoint site fully responsive while keeping all the collaboration functionality is very hard (if not impossible). To overhaul the standard HTML you need to modify the master page and create custom page layouts. Even when doing a complete overhaul you will still have limited control over the HTML that the SharePoint webparts generate. To make ...

Having worked a bit with SP Online page layouts now, I think the biggest difference, to the extent that there is one, is that you should not expect SP Online to handle much of anything server-side except for ASP.NET code. Otherwise, the process is pretty much exactly the same: in both cases you're presented with HTML That being said, you don't actually get ...

To be honest, based on the requirements: Check if a column named "Review Date" of an item is met (Review date = today), and if so, to change the item status to be "In Progress". Then to send an email to the "Assigned To" user , that there is an item assigned to him with “Review Date” that have been met. I would go for a Workflow. Why? Well, ...

(A code-only option, as an extra, not necessarily a suggested answer but one for others who will in future come across this question) I'm surprised nobody's brought up the pretty awesome Patterns and Practices Remote Timer Job Framework https://github.com/OfficeDev/PnP/tree/master/Solutions/Core.TimerJobs.Samples Basically it's a .NET library that lets ...

Option 1: Ditch Visio and draw them by hand and scan them in. I often hand draw documentation these days for clients who appreciate the cutom-look, quick, low-cost, multiple-iteration approach. Option 2: Create the stencils yourself. I've used this approach in network diagrams when I wanted the server icon to represent a web server by adding a world icon to ...

Another possible use of hiding a web part (I do this all the time), when you are importing a script onto your page via a content editor web part. Hiding the web part includes the script on the page but makes it so the web part cannot be deleted or closed inadvertantly by users.

All you need to do is to follow these steps :) Open the master page, find the div tag: Put the following around it: <Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl runat="server" Permissions="ManageWeb"> <div id="s4-ribbonrow" …</div> </SharePoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl> or you can follow this Blog, it shows you three ways of doing it but I ...

SharePoint Designer 2013 works very well for SharePoint Server 2016 and SharePoint Online. And you can continue to use your old branding techniques, if you like. And it really depends of what you're trying to do. You can use Theming by uploading a custom *.spcolor file. You can generate the spcolor-file by using the free SharePoint Color Palette Tool. When ...

Is Microsoft still committed to SharePoint Designer? - They are committed to it being supported for SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint Online. There will be no new version of SPD coming out in the future. I heard there would be no SPD 2016? - Correct, but SPD2013 works with SP2016. Anybody creating design packages for SPO with something other than SPD? - ...

It sounds like something is wrong with your setup. Can you try creating a new site collection and making yourself admin or something (to make sure you have the proper rights)? Like you said, you are seeing the right stuff in the Design Manager > Master Pages menu, and sounds like the snippets aren't working either. Your comment about the settings gear ...

The accepted answer is an answer yes but this is really not a recommended way! The best way would be to place the CSS from the other answer in you master page! <style type="text/css"> .s4-recentchanges { display:none; } </style> This protects you from the setting beeing removed trough updates etc.

Try adding a Script Editor web part to the top of the page, edit the web part, click on "Edit Snippet", and add your style block there. SharePoint strips some things out of the main content areas, but you can effectively add style blocks, links to style sheets, script blocks, and links to script files in a Script Editor web part.

Based on your diagram it looks like you are inheriting permissions from the top level site. If you build out a sub site in a site collection one of the options on creation is whether or not you want to use the same permissions groups from the parent site. If you select Use unique permissions you will be able to create and define the members of those groups ...

This should get you started. Upload your JavaScript and CSS files to the Site Assets folder of the site. Create a .txt file with the links to those files, just like you would link to them in the header in a standard HTML file and place this also in the Site Assets folder of the site. eg. <link rel="Stylesheet" href="yourlocation.css" type="text/css">...

I recently found an easier way. Open the page in SPD, edit in advanced mode, and hover over the Recently Modified box in the Preview pane. Click on the > arrow to the right of the pane and select “Default to Master’s Content”. You’ll receive a notification saying that if you default to the Master Page content, everything in that region will be removed from ...

If you want to see round corners with your solution in IE9, you have to change IE mode. See a similar question about round corners in SP SE. <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9" /> But IE=9 mode can affect some functionality. If you use IE8 or earlier, you must use alternative methods, (the best links are already provided by EStruyf.

The image you mentioned is used across all of the SharePoint v4.master (and not only). The important aspect is that only a small part of this image is ever displayed by using either OffSet properties in server side controls or CSS background-position attributes. One reason for which you see that it might be because it is referenced in any controls on your ...

The only reason to use Office 64 bit is if you're working with HUGE documents (usually excel or access) which are to big to losd in the 32 bit version. Otherwise you should always use 32 bit as there are several peices of functionallity which isn't implemented in the 64 bit version, especially around the browser plugins which SharePoint takes advantage of. ...
