Some time ago I was testing out the Google Visualization API with SharePoint 2010 Rest functionality. The Google Visualization API is very handy if you want to visualize your data. My intention was to create a pie chart to visualise the task statuses. The data was consumed from the SharePoint 2010 REST service with the help of jQuery.

 

This blog post is created by a request of a commenter named Gane. He asked me how to add a footer section to the “minimal.master” master page. This master page is used for the search centers in SharePoint 2010. My previous solution for adding a footer to a master page, were based on the “v4.

 

First of all I’ve tried the same approach for SharePoint 2010 and this works the same way.

One of the things I miss the most in SharePoint 2007 is to set permissions on list views. I thought it was impossible to achieve this with the out-of-the-box functionality of SharePoint. After some research I found a way to achieve all this. My goal was to do it without writing or modifying any code in SharePoint. The solution consists of a number of manual steps, that I will describe in detail below, to accomplish this.

 

I have seen that some people have difficulties with moving the searchbox position to the top ribbon in SharePoint 2010 v4.master file. Two months ago I did this for a client to have more space for all the subsites. Here is what I have done to let it work in IE 7 - 8 and Firefox.

 

After getting the footer working in the undocked version, I have tried to get it to work with a docked ribbon.

The problem is that SharePoint’s Javascript will automatically calculate the exact size of the div “s4-workspace” each time you click on the ribbon or a webpart. This will push the footer off the screen or the bottom from the scrollbar falls of the screen.

 

Hi, This is actually my first blog post and it’s about my first real frustration and moment of joy with SharePoint 2010. This week I wanted to insert a “sticky” footer to my masterpage (v4.master). For two days I have tried to get it working on Internet Explorer and Firefox, but for some reasons it always came out as a disappointment.
