If you read my last post, Creating Audiences via STSADM, then you know that I've been working on a project which requires me to be able to script out the creation of audiences via STSADM. My last post covered the creation of the audience itself, but an audience with no rules isn't all that useful, so for this post I'll be covering my next custom command, gl-addaudiencerule, which enables you to add complex rules to an audience. I'll reiterate a couple of things regarding creating rules from my last post. First off, when you create rules via the browser you are limited to just simple rules - in other words, you may have multiple rules but the boolean logic is limited to all rules matching or any rules matching - there is no combination or complex boolean logic with grouping.

Those of you who've been unlucky enough to meet me have probably seen the spit fly in all directions as I rant and rave about the Data View Web Part. My excitement is not without good reason; the DVWP can save your life as a SharePoint developer by preventing you from writing custom code to do what is actually quite simple (usually): retrieve data from any enterprise source (including SharePoint, but also SQL, Oracle, Web Services, XML, ...), and render it however you see fit. And let's face it, anything that makes you like SharePoint Designer a lot more is always going to be a good thing! Data View/Form Web Part to the Rescue! - Sharing is Caring

A recent blog post of Joel Oleson's got me thinking about who visits my blog. I run my blog on my own server and I have access to all of the logs. SharePoint sits on top of IIS and I can get all the information I need from the IIS logs. In this blog post I'll cover how I tackled going through my IIS logs and getting some useful information out of them, all with free products. I knew I wanted to get some information about the visitors to my blog, but I needed to decide exactly what information I wanted. Using Log Parser with SharePoint - Todd Klindt's SharePoint Admin Blog

Three years ago, I published a post to clarify how scripts (and Web content in general) could be added to a page via a Web Part. It was SP 2010 at that time, and the main contenders were the Content Editor Web Part (CEWP) and the HTML Form Web Part. I concluded the post with a small note about the Page Viewer Web Part (PVWP). It’s about time I explain what I meant… Note: this article focuses on Web Parts. There are of course other ways to include html, stylesheets or scripts in a SharePoint page!

Recently one of my clients had a requirement to go into Edit mode of a sharepoint page using a manual link displayed in quick launch. He was lazy of going to Site Actions -> Edit Page and then again going somewhere else for Exit Edit Mode :) To give some background for beginners, whenever we click Edit Page on Site Actions menu,the pages switches into a different display mode called Design Mode. Its not a feature ofSharepoint, but ASP.NET 2.0 Webparts Framework.

I'm a big fan of host-named site collections. There are a couple of extra things you need to be aware of when using them, but they allow you to scale your farm to greater size, while allowing your sites to be relocated (with no impact to users or links anywhere - you can even shift an internal site to the cloud!). This is a rip from the relevant page in Microsoft's site... captured here for my own benefit. In this article: Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 supports both path-based and host-named site collections. The primary difference between path-based and host-named site collections is that all path-based site collections in a Web application share the same host name (DNS name), and each host-named site collection in a Web application is assigned a unique DNS name.
