SharePoint Designer Training

Posted by Clayton James on October 14, 2009

I am currently up in the sugar capital of Australia, Mackay delivering a 3 day SharePoint designer training course.

Lots of cool things learned:

  • Embedding/displaying videos from a document library in a web page
  • Branding: Custom master page design, CSS and overriding core.css
  • Integrate Twitter into your site
  • DataView Web Part: integration with databases, web services and rss (and sharepoint rollups)
  • IE Developer Toolbar is your best friend

And why are those Fab 40 templates so crap!

User Group Presentation – Content Query Web Part – Part 2

Posted by Clayton James on May 20, 2009

I completed my Part 2 presentation on the CQWP today. I thought that the rain may have kept the numbers down so it was great to see a good turn out.

Topic Covered:

  • How and where best to use – plan ahead
  • Displaying extra columns in result set
  • Modifying the ItemStyle.xsl and .webpart files
  • XSLT
  • Tips and tricks – (thanks Tim for the select=.) tip
  • Subclassing using Visual Studio
  • Deployment


I always need more time presenting at user groups.

Slide deck and demos will be uploaded to the BSPUG site soon.
