Chapter 2: Overview of New Features in SharePoint 2010

Browser support for SharePoint 2010: Supported, Supported with known limitations and Not Tested

IE 6 is not supported.

All CSS style sheets are in this folder:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\STYLES

each control in SharePoint 2010 is responsible for requesting which CSS it needs to render properly; therefore, depending on which controls are on the page, you might see a different combination of CSS fi les being referenced.

SharePoint:SPShortcutIcon: Sets the favicon in the top left of the browser URL bar
SharePoint:CssRegistration After=”corev4.css”: Tells SharePoint what to load after Corev4 css

For example:
< SharePoint:CSSRegistration Name=”3.css” After=”2.css”

SharePoint:SPRibbon: Adds the Fluent UI (the ribbon) to the page
SharePoint:PopoutMenu: Adds the breadcrumb that, when clicked, shows the pop-out that displays your current location in the site in a hierarchical tree structure

Loads the actual developer dashboard at the bottom of the master page This is hidden until the launcher is clicked

SPSWC: MySiteCssRegistration: Allows the use of specific CSS


Open XML fi le format, which is already used by Office programs like Word 2007 and PowerPoint 2007 to create themes. Users create a new theme by selecting 12 colors and two fonts

You can create new theme from Word 2010 or Powerpoint 2010 and import into Sharepoint 2010.


Good for creaing knowledge base pages. Collaboration Portal (wiki in MOSS 2007) has been replaced by Corporate Wiki in Sharepoint 2010. Biggest difference – Enterprise Wiki uses page layouts for content, while team site uses text layout

Team site – use 8 different text layouts, not possible to create new text layout.
Or, you need to enable Publising Feature which uses payge layout, and cab eb customized.

Basically, text layout and page layoout are te same…… both used to format the text/image layout in a page.

SharePoint 2010 has its own client object model that allows Silverlight or JavaScript to easily access SharePoint data. This new object model provides a simple API to add, retrieve, update, and manage data in SharePoint using code that does not require any compiled code. Administrators will be excited that their servers wont be cluttered with countless custom DLLs in the GAC.

Support for media has also been added to the Content Query Web Part (CQWP), which provides a way to dynamically serve up media based on the filter criteria set in the Web Part. The CQWP also supports the capability to stream content, as opposed to waiting for the entire content to download before it is displayed to users — a big change from how media was handled in SharePoint 2007.

Usage Analytics – Sharepoint Logging Database

Mater Page

Application Page (under _layouts) uses a dynamic master page on a per-site basis. A good example is the Site settings (settings.aspx) page. If an error occurs in the master page used by application pages, Sharepoint will fall back to the defaul v4.master.
