AutoSPInstaller

Automated SharePoint 2010 Powershell-based installation script.

Introducing AutoSPInstaller v3 with numerous enhancements including:

  • Granular SQL server assignment and aliasing for (almost) every service/web app (for control freaks)
  • Centralized, remote installation to all farm servers
  • Ability to specify any XML input file, by passing it as an argument to AutoSPInstallerLaunch.bat
  • Several tweaks & fixes

AutoSPInstaller works with and now leverages enhancements in SharePoint 2010 Service Pack 1 (with or without the June 2011 CU)! It takes advantage of some of the cmdlet updates in SP1, while remaining backward-compatible with non-SP1 deployments.

SharePoint Comments Anywhere

This is a very simple project which provides a commenting web part and a list template with the instance to store user’s comments. Comments Anywhere can be configured on any list, pages library or any page of the SharePoint site with a web part zone enabling users to add their comments virtually anywhere you as an admin or a power user of your site want them to.

SharePoint Slide Menu Control

The Slide Menu control represents the container for the menu structure. A menu is composed of MenuItem objects that represent the individual menu commands in the menu structure.

My Links Menu for SharePoint 2010

This control closely mimics the “My Links” menu from SharePoint 2007. In addition to listing a user’s My Links and site memberships, it can also leverage SharePoint search to display a list of all sites the user has access to. Please see the documentation for installation instructions and for more information about using the search functionality.
