SharePoint Public Websites

This is how you can find a list of public web sites built using SharePoint...

To do this, I used Google to search for the phrase "Turn on more accessible mode". This phrase is rendered by most SharePoint pages yet is specific enough to restrict the number of non-SharePoint sites returned.

Try it for yourself: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22Turn+on+more+accessible+mode%22

I'm aware of the list on WssDemo.com. However, I wanted to use Google to generate a dynamic list.

SharePoint "Corrupted Control Template"

I began seeing the error message "Corrupted Control Template" when I switched a Publishing Page into Edit Mode.

Eventually I tracked-down the issue....

1) Another developer had created a number of custom fields.
2) They had created a file called "fldtypes_custom.xml" (which is required to register the custom field types).
3) I renamed this file to something more specific.

To fix the issue I had to....

1) Delete the Web Application (including the associated Content Database)
2) Rename the file back to what it was before I changed it
3) Re-deploy the solution.
