  • Please feel free to interrupt at any time to ask questionsIn this session, we are going to brand a SharePoint site from start to finish. We will use SharePoint Designer, HTML and custom CSS to design a site how not to look like SharePoint. We'll touch upon themes, page layouts as well as master page design. As well as learn how to upgrade a SharePoint 2007 design to SharePoint 2010. This session is focused on designers well versed with HTML and CSS but might not have the SharePoint development experience. Within the session, we'll also look at usability, accessibility and best practices on branding SharePoint public facing sites.AUDIENCE: Developers - Power UsersTOPICS: Information Architecture - Case Studies - Tools and Technics100 - Introductory Track

  • I have taken some samples from Ian Morrish’s WSS Demo Top 100 Best Looking Public SharePoint sites. My intention of putting these slides in is to give you a feeling that anything is possible. However, it’s not to say that every sharepoint site should have a wiz and bang effect.It really depends on the user base and how the site is going to be used.You would not want to put a 600px high header in a corporate internal website for 120 thousand users who really just care about getting access to their project documents.

  • Site actions > site settings > site themepreview changes applied with Graham theme
  • Now that pages are the topic of discussion, master pages and a little branding fits in too. SharePoint 2010 ships with a number of master pages. Important topics to discuss on this slide is how application pages can now also make use of branded master pages, and how there is a default.master that ships the (non-fluent) v3 UI for backwards compatibility.SharePoint 2010 brings a few new master pages that you may want to know about.  There are additional master pages to accommodate both the old and new versions of UI.  There are also some simplified pages to take note in.The first master page we will talk about is v4.master.  This is the default team site master page used with version 4 (obviously) of the UI.  This will be the master page you typically use. It provides the ribbon bar and all of the other new visual UI changes such as the site actions menu on the left side.If you did an upgrade to SharePoint 2010 and haven’t transitioned to the new UI yet, the old master page is still in default.master.  This looks just like the master page you use in SharePoint v3 today.  It doesn’t have the ribbon bar and the site actions menu is still on the right side.The search pages by default now use minimal.master.  This is a really slimmed down master page with next to nothing on it.  It doesn’t even have navigation.  I’m not sure why they opted to use this page in Search Center, but I think it provides and issue with people trying to leave the search center.  The Office Web Applications also use this master page but that makes a little more sense because it provides more screen real estate.The last page I will mention is simple.master.  This page is used for login and error pages.  From what I understand, it can’t be customized (I have no idea why), but it can be replaced.I hope this helps if you were curious about the new master pages.  I’ll also remind you again that application pages can also now make use of any branded master pages you might have created.  I’ll also point out that the master pages all use properly formed XHTML although I am not sure about default.master.  I will check that when I get a chance.Types of SharePoint 2010 Master Pages This section was largely derived from Quick Overview of Master Pages in SharePoint 2010 by Corey Roth v4.masterDefault team site master page. Provides ribbon bar and other UI changes.Characteristics·         Site actions are updated for 2010 and appear on left.·         Ribbon bar is availabledefault.masterSites upgraded from SharePoint 2007 use this unless they are changed to use a v4 version.Characteristics·         Site actions on right side and are same as SharePoint 2007 version·         No ribbon bar.minimal.masterMaster page contains almost nothing. It is used by the Search Center and Office Web Applications. This master should not be confused with minimal master pages from 2007 which were trimmed down custom master pages developed by users. The minimal.master is now an out-of-the box master page. These trimmed-down custom master pages are commonly referred to as Starter Master Pages in SharePoint 2010. Characteristics of minimal.masterNo navigation includedStarter Master PagesCommonly referred to as “minimal master pages” in SharePoint 2007, these quick start pages are created by developers to better enhance their ability to quickly create and customize a functional master. Sources for Starter Master PagesStarter Master Pages for SharePoint 2010 by Randy Drisgrillsimple.masterThis master is used by login and error pages. To customize these pages, a replacement page must be created and stored in the _layouts directory on the server.
