Some time ago I wrote about provisioning instances of Content Query Web Part (CQWP) in a structured and repeatable way. Just recently I have found out that there is one very important thing you have to be aware of, if you don't want to break the deployment process.
It took me a bit to make it up and running correctly, but here it is: the aggregation of SharePoint blogs RSS is available again!
Have you ever found yourself in a situation when you were working with the Content Query Web Part (CQWP) and you wished it could provide you with some more information? While many SharePoint developers create they custom aggregation solutions you should know better than that. Content Query Web Part can provide you with almost any kind of information that you need and all that with only a few lines of code!
Recently I have made a Live Writer plugin which helps you create search engines optimized names for your blog posts (slugs). While I was working on a new MOSS 2007 Web Content Management (WCM) solution I have noticed that the standard page names generated by SharePoint while creating Publishing Pages can be optimized for better findability.
