Easy SharePoint 2010 JavaScript intellisense with Mavention SharePoint JSOM IntelliSense Snippets

SharePoint 2010 ships with the new JavaScript Object Model (JSOM) that allows you to create rich solutions without a single line of server-side code. Using the new JSOM you can create pretty powerful solutions especially when combined with libraries like jQuery. One downside of working with the SharePoint 2010 is the lack of intellisense. This can however be easily fixed. But do we really have to memorize the syntax and the location of all the files we need?

Where is my Reusable Content? (Mavention Track Reusable Content Usage)

The Reusable Content capability of SharePoint 2010 allows you to approach content management from a content-centric perspective. This is a great concept since it allows you to reuse pieces of content rather than copying it and managing at many different places manually. And although the idea of it is great the standard experience provided with SharePoint 2010 leaves some room for improvement. First of all creating blocks of reusable content isn’t as easy as you would want it to. On top of that once you start using Reusable Content it’s only a matter of time that you will start asking yourself where the different blocks are being used on the site. And this is exactly where Mavention Track Reusable Content Usage can help you with.

Not surprisingly: the default samples give you not the best impression of what you could use it for – same as its management interface, and using it in a real life scenario is rather inconvenient. And it’s a shame, because Reusable Content allows you to move away from page-centric content management and make a step towards content-centric content management. And this is exactly where Mavention Create Reusable Content can help you with.

Mavention Meta Fields v1.1: now with better support for Content Types

Recently I’ve released the Mavention Meta Fields SharePoint 2010 solution that allows you to easily add meta tags to Publishing Pages. While the first version was a great improvement of the user experience for managing meta tags of Publishing Pages, it had a minor flaw when using multiple Content Types in a single Pages Library with different sets of meta tags fields. This issue has been fixed in this release.

Creating user friendly deep links with Mavention Highlight Deep Link

In my last article I wrote about how deep links can help you point to specific pieces of the page making it easier to discover the right content. I showed you how SharePoint supports creating deep links out of the box and how you can enrich the default experience using the Mavention Deep Links solution. While writing that article I noticed one thing: deep links are not as discoverable as you would want them to. So what’s exactly the problem and what to do about it?
