Filed under: Office Business Application — patrickyong @ 2:34 pm

Andrew Connell and Spencer Harbar annouces 2 CodePlex projects today to enable community to share examples of useful publishing site elements build using the Web Content management feature of MOSS 2007.

The projects are broken down as follow:

SharePoint 2007 WCM Field Controls
A collection of sample Field Controls for use within Publishing Sites built using Office SharePoint Server 2007’s Web Content Management features.

  • MultimediaFieldControl: Custom field type and control allowing content authors to specify a URL, width and height of a media file (SWF, PDF, WMV, MPEG, AVI, MPG, MOV) and renders the display of the control with the appropriate ActiveX control markup.

SharePoint 2007 WCM Web Parts
A collection of sample Web Parts for use within Publishing Sites built using Office SharePoint Server 2007’s Web Content Management features.

  • FAQWebPart: Web Part that allows business users to contribute to a frequently asked questions list which is rendered with DHTML allowing users to expand/collapse each FAQ item.
  • RandomFlashMovieWebPart: Web Part that allows a content author to select one or more Flash movies from a SharePoint library. The Web Part will then display one of the Flash movies, at random, in display mode.
  • ThumbnailWebPart: Content authors can specify a SharePoint library containing images that the Web Part will generate thumbnails for. It allows content authors to specify the size, sort order and the number of thumbnails to be displayed in one row.

SharePoint 2007 WCM Utilities
A collection of useful utilities for Publishing Sites built using Office SharePoint Server 2007’s Web Content Management features.

  • METATagsGenerator: This ASP.NET 2.0 server control renders HTML <META> tags for each field in the current page’s content type.
  • PropertyBagFeature: Allows content authors to modify values within the property bag of pages… similar to the custom properties provided in MCMS 2002.
  • SharePointSSLHttpModule: Makes it easy for developers to SSL enable certain parts of a MOSS 2007 WCM Publishing site.
