SharePoint GlobalTitleArea (Banner) Customization

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Well I sure hope someone here can help me answer this question.  I have spent hours trying to 'make' it work for me using SharePoint Designer.  I have also spent hours trying to find online instructions on how to do this.
Here is what I want to do.  I need to replace the white space in at the top of the defaul SP Template with a colored banner.  The thing is that I would like it to be a background just for that section.  The issues that I am running into is that since that top banner section is made with a 3 celled table within a table (nested), it just keeps repeating the image in each cell...which just looks weird.  I want the colored banner to span the entire height and width of the top banner are (in SharePoint Designer it is the GlobalTitleArea.  The Banner will be behind the Logo which I have already replaced with my company's custom logo.
I hope that I haven't confused anyone and that someone can help shed some light on this for me.

SharePoint Discussion List Customization - Good Reference?

I'm looking for a document providing a detailed description of what the configuration/customization options are for a SharePoint 2010 Discussion list, especially with respect to improving the user experience through better response thread offsets, and even the addition of expandable/collapsible nodes/tree structure (using +'-'s). Is there a way to do this without resorting to SPD or ortherwise customization? Any good references out there?

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Out of the Depths of SharePoint's XML Hell

I described how a new open source tool called sporm significantly simplifies unit testing SharePoint. Making SharePoint unit testable is my absolute favorite feature of sporm because SharePoint is notoriously hard to unit test. But sporm provides other benefits as well and its ability to pull us out of the depths of verbose loosely typed XML hell and into LINQ excellence is next on my list of favorite features. So in this post I'll describe the pre-sporm technique of querying with CAML, how to query data using sporm, and finally how sporm supports SharePoint's unique architecture of allowing multiple content types per list and what that means to you.

Unit Testing SharePoint - Past, Present, and Sporm

As I described in SharePoint: The Wild West of Software Development there is a serious problem when you develop for SharePoint: ensuring quality through unit testing is really, really hard. And that's where a new open source tool just released today called sporm (SharePoint Object Relational Mapper) comes in. While sporm provides many benefits besides simplified unit testing I wanted to focus on this topic first, because sporm's approach, which models the entity framework in the way it supports POCO's, is a unique feature not available with other SharePoint tools like LINQ to SharePoint.

SharePoint Tutorial - Web Parts

A page in SharePoint is comprised of web parts the exist within zones. Web parts are available for just about everything. For example in the page below there are four web part highlighted by different colors. The purple web part displays a short list of the new announcements stored in the annoucements library. The pink web part displays events from a calendar within the site. The green web part displays an image from a location the user specifies. The gray web part displays a list of links from the links list on the site.

SharePoint Tutorial - Team Sites

Team sites are small web sites that are created to store everything about a particular thing. For example a site can be created for a department in an organization like human resources. I site can be created for a particular project. A site can even be created for a meeting. Everything about the thing (department, project, meeting) like documents, lists, calendars, etc. is stored in that site.

SharePoint Tutorial - Libraries

A library is a feature in SharePoint that stores files (documents). Think of a library as a folder on your file system. For example, a library can be created to store resumes in the human resources team site. A library is usually created for a specific type of file. Libraries can contain metadata to describe the particular file in more detail and to make it easier to find.
