blog web part navigation blue bar

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

How do I make the title of a list appear within the web part and have the "blue bar" appear behind it. The ootb categories, other blog posts, and links does this. but, how do i make a new list do the same?

If I could do this, then I could have one site for my blog that includes links to documents and lists from the navigation.

SharePoint Blog - Admin web part - newBlogPostOnClient JavaScript function


In the Admin Links web part in a default blog site, there are several links, the last one of which launches Microsoft Word and allows you to manage your posts from the Word blog template.  Cool feature.  But that web part is not configurable and I can't figure out how to duplicate that functionality.  It appears to have 3 GUIDS that are part of the function, part of the last parameter looks like the Posts list GUID, but it is concatenated with another GUID.   I want to either create my own web part or modify the XSL of the page to call the function, but I'm not sure what those other GUID parameters are.  Does anyone know?  The last one seems to be two of the separated by the # character.


Building my new blog with Orchard - Part 1

Several people have asked me if I would move my blog to Orchard. There are actually several challenges with this that have nothing to do with Orchard itself, but suffice it to say that right now I'm not really considering it. On the other hand, for a long time I've been wanting to create a second, more personal blog about movies, books, video games and opinions to clearly separate the software stuff from the rest. I've been posting several times on science, games and even on politics here but it always felt a little wrong and I felt obligated to tone it down seeing that this blog has a clear association with my employer, Microsoft. Anyway, the release of Orchard 0.5 looks like the perfect opportunity to create that new blog. I have big plans beyond just blogging for this site and the flexibility of the Orchard platform will be perfect for this. I will document the whole process here as it unfolds.I'm starting with a standard 0.5.144 zip release as downloaded from CodePlex. As I wanted to be able to do local module development that I would later deploy to my hosted account, I started by deploying into a local IIS 7 directory configured to run in the default ASP.NET 4.0 application pool. This way, I can point VS or WebMatrix to my local directory and hack new modules. My next step was to deploy the files to my hoster after convincing him to switch my site to the 4.0 app pool.

Web Part Page doesn't show current navigation

Hi! I'm having a problem with the navigation of web part page in Sharepoint 2010. For starters I need to say that I am a web designer and learning to brand Sharepoint 2010 wich means I'm not that tech-savvy so bear with me. We have created an intranet publishing site with Sharepoint 2010 and I have designed a custom master page with styles through Visual Studio 2010. The intranet site looks fine with the new design and I got navigation working with fly out menus, semantic subpages etc. The problem is: when I create a normal page the current sub-navigation is shown and it even shows my created web part page and all is fine, but once I go to this web part page, the left/sub-navigation disappears and I have no idea how to bring it back. The web part page uses the same master file as every other page. Everything with the the layout stays the same as my masterpage, except for the menu wich disappear so I thought it might be some property missing on the sub-navigation. Or do I need to edit something in the web part page layout in the gallery?: Master Page Gallery > BlankWebPartPage.aspx If so can I do it from Visual Studio? Here is the code for the left navigation menu: <!-- styles needed to have left nav to the left of the main area --> <div id="s4-leftpanel" class="s4-notdlg"> <!-- The quick launch bar / left navigation

Building my new blog with Orchard - part 2: importing old contents

In the previous post , I installed Orchard onto my hosted IIS7 instance and created the "about" page. This time, I'm going to show how I imported existing contents into Orchard. For my new blog, I didn't want to start with a completely empty site and a lame "first post" entry. I did already have quite a few posts here and on Facebook that fit the spirit I wanted for the new blog so I decided to use that to seed it. The science and opinion posts on Tales of the Evil Empire always seemed a little out of place (which some of my readers told me quite plainly), and the Facebook posts were blocked behind Facebook's silo walls even though they were public. You still need a Facebook account to read those posts and search engine can't go there as far...(read more)

Quick Launch navigation and Table Of Contents Web Part multi language issues


I noticed that my multi language site have some issues in translations. The translations in breadcrumb, list and libraries are all ok, except the list names in the Quick Launch navigation and the Table Of Contents Web Part, it does not translate the names of lists and libraries......

Can anybody give me some advise? Or is this a bug?


Way to add non-QL navigation to a web part page?

Is there some sort of navigation web part I can add to the contents of a web part page, that would act like the QuickLaunch (in that the nav is the same for all pages in the site) but is in the content area and not taking up the entire left column like a Quick Launch menu does? This would not be a publishing site.  I'm thinking through the organization of a small site collection.  I want each site within the collection to have its own navigation but the nav menu will be so small that it seams a waste to take up the entire left side of the page.
There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

Building my new blog with Orchard - Part 3: one way to skin a cat

These last few weeks I've been refraining from starting any deep work on my new Orchard-powered blog because most of what I had in mind involved widgets, which are being built right now. Version 0.8 is just around the corner: the team is just putting the final touches to the new theme engine and to the widget system. In the meantime, there is still some work I could do that I knew would not be throw-away, and that is CSS. My objectives with this new blog is to reflect in design what the content is about and what it is not about. VuLu is about knowledge, science, art and philosophy. It's not about shiny gadgets, technology or engineering. That of course means I want nothing web 2.0 in here. Good thing as I don't have much love for rounded corners...(read more)

Filter discussion web part by blog category


I have a blog site with a category web part as navigation.



When i click on CategoryA, it opens : /Lists/Categories/Category.aspx?Name=CategoryA

When i click on CategoryB, it opens : /Lists/Categories/Category.aspx?Name=CategoryB

In category.aspx, i have added a discussion webpart, i have also added a column which is a lookup field which lists all the categories.

So that when you create a post, you tag the post with the correct category.

Now when i provide a filter from the category webpart to my discussion webpart:

The only column i can select from categories is "category with link", next screen i select the field category from the discussion web part.

But this does not seem to work. Clicking on CategoryA or CategoryB displays all post's regardless of the category in the  post.


Not sure if this is the way to do this, so any help is appreciated :)

I'm currently using wss3.




WPF: If Heineken did MVVM Frameworks Part 4

MVVM is to have an instance of a particular Model (say currentPerson) inside my ViewModel (say PeopleViewModel) which is exposed to the View (say PeopleView). The View binds and edits the Model directly.

This definitely flies in the face of what most people consider to be the holy grail of MVVM pattern, but it's a fairly new pattern, so people are still finding their way with it every day, and this works for me very well. The reason I do what I do, is for the following reasons:

1.I have always had the luxury of being able to write my own UI specific Model classes. I would even do this if I was using some other Model classes first, such as LINQ to SQL or LINQ to Entity Framework. As these classes don't have everything a proper WPF Model class needs in my humble opinion. Though, they are pretty good, as they are Partial classes and use INotifyPropertyChanged/DataContract etc etc
2.I am a pragmatist and I do not like writing code for the sake of writing code. I have seen some MVVM apps where the author has had a Model with 50 properties on it, that are simply repeated in the ViewModel abstraction, where the ViewModel added nothing. On that day I decided I would never do that unless I have to.
3.I honestly see no harm in writing directly to the Model from the View, JUST SO LONG AS if the Model is InValid its data NEVER makes its way to the database. I honestly see no pro

Building Layered Web Applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 - Part 1

"Building Layered Web Applications" that shows you how to build N-Layer applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. These articles teach you how to design, build and use custom business objects in your web application. The target audience for this series are developers that are ready to make the switch from using SqlDataSource controls to ObjectDataSource controls with custom business objects. Experience with ASP.NET 2 and C# is necessary while some knowledge about object oriented design certainly helps. The design I am going to show you in these articles is a simplified version of a design you would use in a real world application. It doesn't feature all the necessary functionality your application needs, but instead focuses on the underlying concepts.

Hello World to C# Threading Part 1

In this post we will see how we can implement simple threading. Why do we need threading? When you want you application to do more then one thing at same time, then you need to implement threading. One usual and common scenario would be when your application needs to get data from some other resource like web services and you don't want you application GUI to be freeze during this time. In that sort of case you will run the code to access web services in separate thread so your application GUI won't freeze. The System.Threading namespace .NET provide interfaces to implement multi threading.

What's new in ASP.NET 4.0 - Part II - Routing in Webforms

This post covers one such feature which is Routing in Webforms. Although Routing was available even in .NET 3.5 SP1, (check this excellent post by Phil Haack on implementing Routing in ASP.NET 3.5 with .NET 3.5 SP1), it was kind of less known. Also the plumbing work was too much for getting it implemented.
