Found a nice little page on TechNet that I though I would share in regards to content for SharePoint 2013.

InfoPath – Difference between days

I had a request for a form to count the number of days between two date pickers as one of it’s functions.  All that you need to make this happen is add two date picker controls and one text field to display the count.  I have included an InfoPath sample form that explains this in detail and should provide you with the knowledge to add something like this to one of your forms.

I originally found this form on the following site when I faced this issue: https://alecpojidaev.wordpress.com/2008/12/30/infopath-codeless-programming-walkthrough-2/

Alec Pojidaev has many great techniques for using no code solutions which I am a big fan of.  I suggest you check out his site to see all of the advanced features he has laid out.

SharePoint – Dropdown Menu/Navigation Does Not Work

Have you ever logged on to your SharePoint site and the drop down navigation does not work?  After days of clicking around, I decided to fix the issue, which really was not much of fix.

Turns out, this is an issue with my MS Office installation.  All that you have to do is run a repair of your Office  install under the add/remove programs area.  Once the repair is complete, log back on to your SharePoint site and the menu should now appear.

Editing a Windows 7 Hosts File

I know that this may be common knowledge to most people in the IT world, but sometimes I forget even the simplest of tasks.  I haven’t edited a hosts file in 7 years so it took me a minute or two to remember where I was supposed to do this.  Now that I am running Windows 7, there is one more thing that I had to do…..Run as Administrator.

I decided to create a short video on how to edit your hosts file.  Enjoy!
