Metadata Tag Refiners not displaying in SharePoint 2013 Search Results

While working with a colleague on some search issues in office 365, we noticed something that seems to be a marked departure from SharePoint 2010 and the behaviours around documents tagged with Managed Metadata.

SPC14 – Las Vegas – Wrap Up

The conference is over for another year and I must say I was really glad that I decided to go to this one. The energy and enthusiasm that was missing from SPC12 seemed to be back, and whilst we didn’t have a new version to shout about, there were plenty of announcements coming throughout the …

One of the more powerful features of Fiddler is the ability to intercept a call to the server and replace the response with a response of its own. This becomes a very powerful tool especially when you have existing display templates that you wish to edit, without affecting the live service. This becomes especially handy …

I’m speaking at SharePoint Saturday Stockholm – Jan 25th 2014

A few weeks ago the speakers list was announced and sadly I wasn’t one of the lucky few to get chosen to present at SharePoint Saturday Stockholm, which wasn’t surprising given the number of submissions and vast talent and expertise that was available.

The demos are safe!

After tracing the source of my hardware failure at SharePoint Saturday UK, I found it wasn’t the SSD after all! (Chris O’Brien you’re forgiven!) As a result I’ve been able to recover all of the Display Template demos and scripts which are available for you to download here:- Display Templates for IT Pros – The …
