Wanna discuss Microsoft Sharepoint?

Currently, I'm developing something that requires integration with Microsoft Sharepoint.

If you're considering to do the same, and are used to standard HTML, CSS and javascript technologies like object-detection and namespacing, I seriously advise you to have some painkillers in reach, as well as some hard liquor to flush them down.

If you'd like to discuss my point of view, please use this function from core.js, kindly provided by the open minded crew that is responsible for the web development disaster better known as Microsoft Sharepoint:

function Discuss(strUrl)
{
var L_IE5upRequired_Text="'Discuss' requires a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible application and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 or greater.";
if (browseris.ie5up && browseris.win32)
window.parent.location.href=strUrl;
else
alert(L_IE5upRequired_Text);
}

Thank you.

Amen to that! :)

Once had the pleasure of developing a public facing website using Sharepoint as the backend/CMS with the requirement to have things nice and accessible, working without Javascript, nice semantic markup, CSS - the usual stuff....

.... as you can guess - the project never quite saw the light of day! As your label says, Sharepoint truly is a 'coding horror'... :(
