If you are following the Sitecore 9 Update 1 Installation Guide, you may note that the prerequisites for SIF can lead to failures with SQL Communication if you are installing a scaled Sitecore environment (ex. SQL is installed on one server, while your Sitecore roles are installed on separate servers). You may not experience issues if you …
As I developed www.thepersonalfinancecenter.com with the joy of using AngularJS coupled with an Azure Mobile Services backend, the struggle was not with implementing a voting feature for social authority or providing identity management (thanks to Auth0), but rather how to ensure that AdSense would render properly and the site could be SEO compliant. Let’s address …
If you are one of the multitude of users/developers who depend on MicrosoftAjax.js via accessing it in the _layouts/15 or _layouts/ directory and found that it is now gone from your SharePoint Online tenant or local SharePoint instance, you are not alone. Microsoft deemed this unnecessary as they believed it was not in use except for legacy Excel needs. In reality, many of us depend on it for client side operations.
After conversations with Microsoft this week, they stated that a KB Article and solution will be posted in the near future but that using the CDN for MicrosoftAjax.js is acceptable. I would recommend downloading the script from the CDN and referencing it locally in case of CDN issues. The CDN is located here: https://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/4.0/1/MicrosoftAjax.js
UPDATE: After Microsoft worked internally and realized the impact, they have begun rolling back this change and restored MicrosoftAjax.js to tenants. Check to ensure yours is restored. If not, use the method above.
As I was swapping in some Web design files to OneDrive, I clicked and opened a file to find that it went straight into an edit mode. Curious to see if I could truly edit the file, I found that not only could I edit it, but it included IntelliSense! This replaced the need to have Visual Studio installed on my machine for some of my code needs.
While I couldn’t preview the changes from OneDrive, it is easy enough to download the directory to a desktop or other preferred location and click on the “Index” or home file to start browsing through the Web site.
See an example of the edit view below:
While The Budget Calculator offers a “Free Budget Calculator to get control of your spending and start planning for the future today”, it gave me an excuse to play with Bootstrap 3 with a focus on aligning inputs responsively. Specifically the Grid System employed by Bootstrap provides greater stability/flexibility versus traditional percentage based responsive site design. As far as dealing with inputs, there are a lot of styling options which I encourage others to evaluate first before pursuing your own customizations. Per the core Bootstrap CSS, I kept it intact and used a second file for non-Bootstrap customizations.

If you have ever struggled to find the Site Settings in a site with a custom design, or the Web Part Gallery, the folks at Fpweb.net have compiled a very useful list of SharePoint URLs. Please find it at: http://blog.fpweb.net/your-sharepoint-url-list-an-administrators-guid/
This is a follow up to the previous post for Server 2008 R2 (http://thebitsthatbyte.com/know-your-limits-capacity-planning-for-hyper-v-virtual-machines/) and provides limits for Virtual Machines running within Hyper-V on Server 2012. You will notice that the differences are quite stunning, especially surrounding the amount of Virtual Processors, Memory, and Hard Disk Capacity (if using VHDX format). Full details can be …

When users set their language preferences within their My Site, many expect translation to occur across all of SharePoint. The reality is that this will change certain aspects of SharePoint, but not page text or content within custom Web Parts. While the multi-lingual aspects of SharePoint 2013 are robust (variations, machine translation, etc.), there is a …
If you are developing Windows 8.1 Apps, it appears an issue with jQuery version 2.1.0 causes “HTML1701: Unable to add dynamic content…” errors. This occurs even if jQuery code is not in use, but merely the link to jQuery is included in your code. Switching to jQuery 2.0.2 resolved the issue for me. The errors were …
