The My Links Web Part – It’s Not Just for My Sites #sharepoint

I’ve talked to a number of folks in recent months that have wanted to add the links stored in a user’s My Links list in their My Site to other SharePoint pages that weren’t in the My Site site collection. Up until yesterday, I had always thought this would require some custom programming. If you aren’t familiar with My Links, it’s a great place to store those things you might normally store in your Internet Explorer Favorites or Firefox Bookmarks

SharePoint on SharePoint: Launch of new website

Lights… Camera… Action! Today, we launched the SharePoint marketing website on SharePoint Server 2007.  First the home page, it is brand new and we’re using Silverlight enabled web parts to keep the interface simple, elegant and dynamic thus enhancing the overall usability of it.  You can watch customer videos, learn about events, download trial versions of the software and a lot more on the home page now.  Since the site is powered by MOSS, we are taking advantage of the publishing feature and list driven content.  This allows the SharePoint team to more quickly publish news, events, demos, webcasts and a whole lot more.  But wait… There’s more!  We also invested time to make sure the site was optimized for search engines.  We’re really excited about all the possibilities that are in front of us now that SharePoint is running on SharePoint.  :) Check it out and let us know what you think!  I’ll conclude with a special  *CONGRATS* to Tony Tai, SharePoint Product Manager, and the team who completed this very important project. Here’s the URL:  http://www.microsoft.com/sharepoint/ Enjoy!
