Responsive SharePoint for SharePoint 2013

March 11th, 2015 No comments

Responsive UI is one of the better design techniques for handling UI design for multiple screen sizes. There are a number of bootstrap solutions available; however, the nicest free package I’ve seen out there is the Responsive SharePoint project found on CodePlex. Many out of the box UI features have been customized to adapt to screen size such as the top navigation, quick launch, list views, and others.

At the time of this writing, the one major issue that appears is a “401 Unathorized” message that shows up when trying to browse to “_layouts/15/start.aspx”.  From my experience with this solution the message shows up every second load of that page. Currently the way to get around this issue is to disable the “Minimal Download Strategy” feature, but if that is not an option for you, you’ll need to look for another responsive solution or create your own.

Overall a really good solution, and I’m looking forward to seeing this issue get fixed.

A tip to keep your SharePoint_config database under control

January 11th, 2015 No comments

Every once in a while, the situation comes about where a developer or administrator notices that their SharePoint_Config database has grown extremely large in size.  This is not a newly documented issue and you can find the detailed steps from the blog post link below. What’s happening here is the timer job “Delete Job History” at some point has to many records stored in SQL for it to be able to complete before it times out or runs out of memory.

My tip here is that if you’re creating a new environment or once you’ve cleaned up your existing environment, is to change the “Delete Job History” schedule from once a week to once a day. This will help to keep the timer job in a state that it’s able to complete its work and have the database size under control.
