Do you know about content types in SharePoint 2007?

Martin Kearn explains them very well from the perspective of document management.  All I can say is wow.  🙂

    Thanks Shane. I think ‘wow’ is the right word – personally Content Types is by far my favourite development for MOSS 2007. I’m going to be writing about some of the changes in Columns soon and how they compliment Content Types, so watch out for that.

    I need to create a webpart that lists ALL webparts on my portal and allows my users to select, checking some checkboxes, whichever webparts they want to have on the homepage. It’s kind of myGoogle or NetVibe or Start.com style.

    I don’t really need that fancy AJAX drag-and-drop functionality, but if is not too much trouble it will be welcome…

    SharePoint is not that userfriendly, so my users say.

    I just want to cut some steps when adding webparts to the page. Edit >> Modify Shared Page >> Browse >> Drag-and-Drop webparts is way too complicated for my users…

    I’ve looking around for some pre-built webparts but it looks like nobody was thinking about this issue…

    Is it that hard? Why Microsoft doesn’t have this in mind for the next version? USABILITY! This is a word that is missing in Microsoft’s vocabulary…unfortunatelly…

    Help Please! If I don’t find a way out, my company will get rid of SharePoint Portal. I heard rummors they want to move to IBM WebSphere! Please, please, please HELP ME!
