Display a Grouped Items in a List or Document Library from another Sharepoint Site

Thursday, November 3, 2011

We had a requirement that needs to display a certain view of a document library in another site to a different site. After searching, with the help of Mr. Google, we stumbled upon the Path To SharePoint blog and thanks to Christophe we found the solution. Here is the LINK .

But the problem is that the Javascript solution by Christophe has some limitations like grouping , sorting, next page are disabled and we need those functionalities in some of the Sharepoint views to be displayed.

Because of that, my colleague (not to be named according to him lol) modified Christophe’s original CrossSite Javascript. There are two solutions, one for Sharepoint 2007 and one for Sharepoint 2010. There are two scripts because of the difference in UI of the two versions.

One thing I remember is that I edit the page in Site Actions menu then I accidentally click the “x” mark. Clicking the “x” mark will close the webpart. After that I just add the list webpart to show it again and poof! The view dropdown is missing.
Now I will show you how to restore the view dropdown…

How to remove blank comments on Append Changes to Existing Text

I have one project that requires time stamp and name to be recorded on a multiple type of text type field whenever a user saves a comment. I tried using "Append Changes to Existing Text", be sure to turn on versioning or sharepoint won't allow you that option. The problem here is a user can save an item/task without putting a comment in the field and sharepoint will still put stamp on it with a blank comment! (fig.1)
