Sweet and Sour Source Control

Security Issues When Creating Pages in SharePoint

0 comments

I was speaking (or rather IM’ing) with Ben Collins a while back and he came across an interesting problem that I wanted to document for the sake of posterity.  If you have a SharePoint user who has permissions to create a page in a page library, but that user is having security issues trying to […]

0 comments

24 hours after posting my last blog I realised I’d neglected to mention Visual Studio 2010. I must have hit the Beaujolais a bit too hard or something, but anyway… Three of our tools have some level of integration with Visual Studio – .NET Reflector, ANTS Performance Profiler, and ANTS Memory Profiler – but so […]
