PowerShell Sorting Tip for Enumerations
Mike Smith
  Do you ever have a PowerShell script that just won't sort right? The problem? PowerShell makes assumptions, and not always the ones you would make. For example let's get a list of SharePoint lists and sort them by their BaseTemplate property:     $mtg = Get-SPWeb http://maxsp2013wfe/sites/Meetings    $mtg.Lists | Sort BaseTemplate | Select BaseTemplate, Title Is the result you would expect?

C# Compare Arrays
Mike Smith
  Sometimes we get so focused on the advanced features of .NET that we (or at least I) forget the basics.

You Cannot Test Your Own SharePoint Security
Mike Smith
  Test accounts are fun, but rarely a good thing. As a typical site owner in a typical company, you are only issued one user account, one username/password. Having a "test account", especially a test account that is shared with multiple site owners is a bad practice, often prohibited, and sometimes grounds for termination. (In any case, your auditors will not like it.) So why can't you test with [read].

It depends… on which one you click, and your permissions. [read].

Merging Two PowerShell Collections into One Output
Mike Smith
  In SharePoint users and groups are both security principles, and both share some common properties. One property, ID, is interesting as it is unique and never duplicated between the lists of users and group. I.e. if there is a user with an ID of 5 then there is never a group with an ID of 5. In PowerShell there are two separate properties for users and groups, but I wanted to merge the two into [read].

  I have updated the "SharePoint: RegistrationId List Template Type IDs" article to include the new 2013 list types. This time, I used a PowerShell script to dump the SPListTemplateType enumeration. Note that there are many template IDs that are not in the SPListTemplateType enumeration and generally can only be found in investigations of the databases and other documentation. The PowerShell [read].

Recent Changes to the SharePoint 2013 UI
Mike Smith
  About a month ago I wrote a little post about Office 365 / SharePoint–a Moving Target that included a mention about an April 9th update to the UI. Well, on April 21st the April 9th update finally appeared in one of my Office 365 subscriptions. (The update has not shown up in the other subscriptions yet.) What are the changes? An updated "hero bar", or navigation bar has been added above the [read].

Change the SharePoint 2013 Suite Bar Text #sharepoint #powershell
Mike Smith
  Hacking around with PowerShell always finds some new property or method that I would never have gone looking for! This time it is a SPWebApplication property that sets the text in the "Suite Bar". The default text in the suite bar is "SharePoint" for on premises installs and "Office 365" plus an icon for the cloud versions. The actual HTML for the text is " [read].

Reduce Spacing in a SharePoint 2013 Top Link Bar
Mike Smith
  The top link bar in SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 adds a lot of space between each menu item, 30 pixels to be exact. You can tighten this up quite a bit by changing the default spacing with a block of CSS added to your master page. Default spacing: After the CSS change below: Add the following to your master page somewhere after the CssLink control ( [read].

Download a File from SharePoint using PowerShell
Mike Smith
  I recently had a request for a PowerShell script that could be run as a Windows scheduled task to download a file each night to a network share. As is typical, there's more than one way…   The PowerShell / .Net approach: This is a ".Net approach" as it does not use any PowerShell cmdlets (beyond New-Object).

SharePoint Versioning Trivia, or maybe a start on a versioning FAQ
Mike Smith
  The number of versions retained is one more than the limit you set. Entering 10 as the version limit will keep up to 11 versions of the item. I guess the current "version" is not counted as a "version". Then maximum number of versions per item is 5000. (at least in SP 2010) We you exceed the version limit the oldest item is immediately discarded. It is not moved to the recycle bin. Only [read].
