During my last Web Content Management (WCM) project built on top of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 I noticed that SharePoint was rendering two <title> elements on all pages:
A while ago I did some research on performance of various approaches for aggregating data in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Back then I have found some interesting results. In the project I’m working on at the moment, I got a slightly different challenge: what is the best way to retrieve one particular list item?
Since a couple of days I’m working on a brand new Web Content Management solution on MOSS 2007. For the first time I’ve started off using Internet Explorer 8. Considering the changes the IE team has made to the DOM rendering I wasn’t surprised when I saw that some of the SharePoint functionality doesn’t work properly in IE8.
Sometimes doing the simplest things turns out to be unnecessary difficult. This is true with SharePoint development in particular. For example: have you ever tried creating a menu control based on a standard Site Map Provider which would render a nested unordered list (UL) and nothing else? I have, and finally have a solution that I’m happy about: a templates-based menu control.
