Sharepoint branding step by step

I just published new post at my english blog. I wrote about branding.

Sharepoint branding step by step

Today I would like to write a few words about branding. I have to make branding for my company internal site and I would like to say that it was something new to me. I was working with SharePoint online and current post is based on this environment. Let me point one thing at the begging. Microsoft in general is against branding, especially if you want make some deep changes. I understand that, as I had cases that after some modification in SharePoint itself branding was destroyed. It’s very important in case of Office 365 where some changes can be done by Microsoft without prior information. But in some cases site should look nice to the users, for example if it’s central site of the company, with marketing or business information. It should be good looking. I will present my approach from my point of view as the guy who’s not graphic skills. Very often people ask how to make Sharepoint not look as Sharepoint, how to make Sharepoint branding step by step so let’s start.

How to brand SharePoint – part 2

Sharepoint branding step by step – part 2

In previous article Tomasz Szulczewski wrote about custom master page and how to make SharePoint branding. This article was based on SharePoint Online (Office365). But there’s something more… Microsoft give us more possibilities, which can be used to extend functionality of our page. Let’s move to design manager. On “Edit Master Page” page press link „Conversion successful” for our master page. We will be transferred to preview page. We can see there how our main page will be looking when we use our custom master page.

How to brand SharePoint?

How to brand SharePoint?

Ok, would you like to know what branding is? I have to make branding for my company internal site and I would like to say that it was something new to me. I was working with SharePoint online and current post is based on this environment. Let me point one thing at the begging. Microsoft in general is against branding, especially if you want make some deep changes. I understand that, as I had cases that after some modification in SharePoint itself branding was destroyed. It must be taken into consideration in case of Office 365 where some changes can be done by Microsoft without prior information. But in some cases site should look appealing to the users, for example if it’s root web site of the company, with public relation or business information. It should be very good looking. I will present my approach from my point of view as the guy who’s not designer. Very often people ask how to make Sharepoint not look as Sharepoint, how to brand SharePoint. I also seen something at this site, but it’s in polish.

To start we will need design for our web site. We have to remember that we should avoid some features like flash or silverlight.  On other hand we can get really amazing results with HTML 5, javascript, Bootstrap, etc. You can find a lot of free designs on the Internet. If you want you can check this site. Let’s download our template and then open it in Visual Studio or other editor. At the begging we should remove everything which will not be used in our project, like scripts, images, pages, etc. Usually we will stay with single page, scripts and css’s.

How to be programmer after 40

I wrote very interesting article at. I think that age discrimination will grow in average and big companies. In many companies interviews are focused on short list. At the begging it doesn’t matter what do you know. HR people don’t want to meet hundreds of candidates, when they just need to hire one person. They want to make list of candidates short to make it easy to work with it. There’s a vision that in a few years more people could be isolated on the labour marker without any specific reason. Especially it concerns forty years persons. More you can find at: http://tszulczewski.com/programmer-after-40/

Freelancer

Do you want to be a freelancer? On my main blog I wrote a new post. Please find below a small part of it:

How to become freelancer?

It’s not technical post, but very often it’s related to IT people, as many of us is working as freelancer. Also many of us think that our salary is low or projects are below our expectation. So some of us accept it, some will change a job or move abroad. I would like to show you that there’s another way, I mean how to become freelancer. I do not asking you to quit the job and move to own business. I would like to show you how to achieve this goal with small step by step. Usually if we want to be a freelancer we have to take care about everything by ourself: getting clients, payments, marketing, etc. And if  we don’t have big experience,  or if we are not Bill Gates, or if he is not our father it could looks like crazy idea!

Sharepoint content type

Introduction to content types and content type publishing

In general most of us working with SharePoint know what the content type is. A SharePoint content merge together an item and information about the item.We can use different kinds of items: a document, an excel workbook, a KPI’s, etc. With this approach we get metadata which can be used in many ways. All those information are obvious for most of us and it’s basic knowledge for all SharePoint people. So why I am writing about it again? Because again I get the project which was previously developed by some super SharePoint heroes. And there are many libraries, lists without any single site collection column or content type! Isn’t it amazing??? And now If I want to make any modification I have go through all libraries/ lists and check one by one. Just wonderful! So I would like to remind to everyone who are new to SharePoint or maybe they forgot what does it mean power of the content type.
Drop down from New Document menu showing a Sales Contract content type.
