I recently posted an article detailing how the Content Editor Web Part can be leveraged to display a menu based on the SELECT element, using hypertext markup and javascript to render hyperlinks in a manner that maximizes Windows SharePoint Services real-estate and promotes a positive user experience. Several requests and questions I received as a result of this post were whether or not the hyperlinks in the Content Editor Web Part could be harvested from a List.
  • I haven’t revisted this post in awhile and thought I would include some additional information on the topic; in response to dkbobe’s questions surrounding updating the user information; you can use the SPUserUtility to update the tp_Login column to reflect the new domain - more information on this tool can be found at Keith Richie’s blog @ I was pleased to see my mention in Joel Oleson’s SharePoint Blog on the Impacts of Renaming a Resource Forest on SharePoint Servers; I’m hoping to elaborate more here as there is little documentation on this topic; at least from the perspective of impacts to SharePoint services.
