Thought I would drop a quick post to let you all know about some great blogs that members of the Zevenseas team have started getting out the door.
Cas Van Iersel (http://www.twitter.com/casvaniersel and http://community.zevenseas.com/Blogs/cas) cranked out:
Using SharePoint 2010 Taxonomy Picker out of context
Tagging in SharePoint is great. A while ago I wrote about using the TaxonomyField in Publishing pages but this time I needed the control in an application page with no Content Type attached (of any other form of context). The case is to build a configuration page for creating a new SiteCollection. On this page is a form where a user can put in a name, description and Tags from the Term Store Taxonomy
Cross Site Content Aggregation in Office 365
As we all know in Office 365 developers are bound to the Sandbox which is limited to his own Site Collection. The information living in other Site Collection is hard to get from code. Even with ECMA script the possibilities are very limited too. With an on premise SharePoint 2010 farm the first thing that comes to mind when talking about cross site aggregation is Search. Luckily the possibilities to use Search over Site Collections is present in Office 365.
Mark Overdijk (http://www.twitter.com/MVOverdijk and http://community.zevenseas.com/Blogs/mvoverdijk) dished up:
Choose your Office365 wisely
There are three versions for Office365; Small Business, Enterprise and Education. I'm leaving out Office365 for Education, for it's a version for Education only.
The Enterprise edition comes in 4 flavors (E1 - E4), while there's only 1 Small Business plan (P1). However both versions are very similar, there are some differences, which can have a huge impact.
Akhilesh Nirapure (http://www.twitter.com/AkhileshN and http://community.zevenseas.com/Blogs/Akhilesh) pitched in with:
Declaratively Setting Audience Targeting property for Publishing Page
I was looking as to how can i Declaratively set the Audience Targeting property for my Publishing Pages while creating them, well i knew we could do it using Object Model and feature receiver, but i was looking something we could set as configuration, for e.g "ContentType", "PublishingPageLayout" which could be specified as configuration and sharepoint infrastructure handles it for us.
And finally, Vardhaman Deshpande (http://community.zevenseas.com/Blogs/Vardhaman) chimed in with:
Get HTML from page using the SharePoint Client Object Model
Here is how to get the RAW HTML of a Web Page on your SharePoint Site using the Client Object Model
Office365 beta and the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model
I just got my Office365 beta license and configured a new Team Site in Sharepoint Online. Then I thought of accessing this new team site through the SharePoint 2010 .NET Client Object Model when I got the 403: Forbidden error code.
Great stuff guys, awesome to see the contributions you are making, keep them coming!
