PublishingWeb.ExcludeFromNavigation Missing
So recently I have had to make the transition from the SharePoint 2007 codebase to SharePoint 2010 codebase. Needless to say there hasn't been much difficulty in the changeover. However in a set of code that I was playing around with and transitioning I did find one change that might cause some pain to others out there that have been programming against the PublishingWeb object in the Microsoft.SharePoint.Publis... namespace.

Easy SharePoint FBA Administration
I recently have been working on a solution for a client that is converting their current external membership website to WSS 3.0. I am so happy with the way the solution is coming together.

When do you throw in the towel?
In a previous post I mentioned that I recommended using WSS or SharePoint for kick starting the creation of web based applications. With that said, I need to post on another important subject that has come up in regards to that. I have a client which I really enjoy working with. They are a good company and they did see the potential benefit of using SharePoint to get their application a solid foundation. They utilized WSS 3.0 to create their web presence and web application for their customers. However, ......
