After 2 years of using SharePoint Mapped Folders and Application Pages, I abandoned them in favor of more native modules and Site Pages. And for 1.5 years now I've been using this approach successfully and with huge profit!
SharePoint is vast and luxurious: it has so many features it is easy to completely loose yourself in them. But not all of its features well designed or well implemented. Herein I present my top 5 error-prone features of SharePoint.
Unfortunately, SharePoint OOTB RSS feed for a document library doesn't look very tempting, and cannot be much customized. How to fix that? Once again, DataFormWebPart will help!
Another DataFormWebPart successful usage example: now for automatic management of blog post series here on this blog.
Blog site template is notorious for it's inconveniences and not fitting the real public blogging needs. But it turns out, there are some other, easier ways to create your public blog with SharePoint.If you have a SharePoint list with many fields (say, more than 10), you might want to tabify the forms. There is a number of well-known ways to do that, but I think I invented one more :)
Majority of SharePoint developers think that SharePoint Ribbon customizations end with adding plain buttons. Nothing of the kind! Ribbon allows quite a number of controls, and among them - one of my favorite, ToggleButton.
If you want to send remainder letters before expiration date set for some list item in SharePoint, there is an easy way to do it: use custom SPD workflow.
Sometimes ribbon customizations have to be site-wide. And now Fluent Ribbon API opensource project fully supports such customizations, making the implementation of a cross-wide ribbon tab trivial and fast.
