Tag: Master Page

 

Some time ago I wrote a post about the missing Apps you can add zone (Missing the Apps you can add Zone When Adding a New App). The problem with it was that this zone becomes available once a particular element is found on the page. The element was placed on the page via the PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea content placeholder.

 

This week a client mentioned an issue when they want to add new apps to their sites. The issue is that they do not see the Apps you can add zone on the app creation page (your-site/_layouts/15/addanapp.aspx). They only see the Noteworthy apps: Noteworthy Apps The sites on which this problem occurs have custom branding applied.

 

A couple of months ago I wrote some posts about provisioning design files in SharePoint 2013 (display templates, none html design files).

Footers and SharePoint that was the starting point of this blog. Back in August 2010, I blogged about how to create a sticky footer for your SharePoint 2010 sites (blog post can be found here and here). Now it is time to upgrade this sticky footer solution to SharePoint 2013.

 

New SharePoint versions can be challenging, especially when it comes to branding your sites. When you are in a migration process like me, you will probably have to re-do the branding to support the new functionalities. Assuming that everything will work like before can be really disappointing. There are a lot of new functionalities, which means that your design will also need to support these functionalities.
