Video tutorial on Joomla access control for menu items and articles.  This video explains how to have specific group & access view control for menu items and articles.  

We use an example of runners, and the main runner page is seen by logged in users, but there are runner specific child menu items that are only seen by those specific other runners can see their pages.  This may be a scenario where coaches have special and secret training plans for certain runners, and that information shouldn't been seen by other runners.

The groups are created, followed by access levels, menu items and articles are tied to those Joomla access levels, then users are assigned to the groups.  The video walks through the backend creation, front end example of Joomla access control on specific menu items, then a re-cap in the backend.

I hope this video helps others, as it did help with a specific need on our development.

User request to have a SharePoint 2013 list hyperlink column to open in a new tab.  

The code (my hyperlink is the 4th column in the list) that worked even when going to page 2 in the list view:

$(function() {
        var $t;

        var interval = setInterval(function() {
            $t = $(">tbody tr td:nth-child(4) a");

              $(this).attr("target", "_blank");
        }, 1000);

Special thanks for the help on this issue to Patrick_Liang (MSFT CSG, Partner)

Dealing with SharePoint 2007 Calendar view. We are trying some javascript via a content editor to hide the "12:00 AM" when viewing the data from a calendar view.

Via a Content Editor Web Part we hid all instances of "12:00 AM" via:

<script type="text/j-avascript">
var el = document.getElementsByTagName('a');

for(var i=0; i < el.length; i++) {
      el[i].innerHTML = el[i].innerHTML.replace("12:00 AM","");

User reported they could open a 2007 InfoPath form from the library/list view, but couldn't open the link from Outlook or copying the URL into another/new browser tab. The errors seen where either:

  • The form has been closed
  • The following file is not a valid InfoPath form template

We knew the template/form itself was valid because brand new forms were working correctly.

How did we fix it?

  1. In right side "Available Views" for the library, click "Relink Documents" 
  2. From "Template Link" column, click right dropdown list icon and you'll see the one or more templates appear as options >> this is your first clue this is where the problem arises...there should only be 1
  3. A correct link should simply end in "/Forms/templates.xsn" 
  4. You can verify this link/URL by going to the Form Library Settings >> Advanced Settings 
  5. Have a look @ the "Template URL:" value (you can double click + Copy the URL) 
  6. Paste this URL into Notepad 
  7. Notice URL should be similar to "site/Forms/template.xml" 
  8. Back to "Relink Documents" view >> Template Link column 
  9. Clicking one of the 2+ values in this particular library shows at the end of the VERY LONG & INCORRECT template link we can see the problem starting just after the initial "/Forms/template.xsn" where the string begins "?SaveLocation=http://*" 
  10. There should be nothing with "?SaveLocation" 
  11. To fix a particular row check the "Relink" checkbox, then the button/link named "Relink Selected Documents" at the left top area of the data rows. 
  12. Users should now be able to open the link from Outlook, new browser tab, etc. 

**** How did it get this way?

Make sure users have the IE add-on SharePointOpenXMLDocument enabled.

We were trying to move several meeting workspaces from a 5th level sub-site to a 2nd level site within the same site collection.  We know regular sites at the same or different level can be moved, but for some reason the meeting workspaces won't move.  Publishing feature is activated on the destination, and we have moved test sibling sites into different sibling sites.  Error we keep getting is:

'Site in question' cannot be moved or copied into itself or one of its subsites

Looks like you just need to be patient to get these workspaces to move!  ~=^)

1. Move modal comes up
2. select destination
3. *** wait for modal window to post back
4. then you can click "OK" to move the actual sites
