    Extending the SharePoint Core JavaScript

    Posted 6 February 2018 12:00 AM by Ian Jackson, Front End Solutions Architect @ ClearPeople

    Every now and then I come across a problem with the SharePoint core script which the naive developer in me is urged to fix this using some CSS or with some hacky javascript.

    SharePoint 2013: Choosing the Right Colours

    Posted 30 June 2014 12:00 AM by Ian Jackson, UX Developer @ ClearPeople

    In front-end development, the first step we take when styling a web site is to focus on the branding (font-sizes, line-heights, margins, and padding of the primary html elements).

    SharePoint 2007 error: “Form control does not have ControlMode set”

    Posted 6 June 2012 12:00 AM by James Callaghan, Consultant @ ClearPeople

    One of the most common tasks when branding a SharePoint installation is to generate a custom master page to be used in your freshly branded site. As a front end developer, in an attempt to simplify the master page, and further management and maintenance of the master page, you tend to (or at least, I tend to) try and remove all the unnecessary code and placeholders you’re not going to use.  In a SharePoint master page this can be hundreds of lines! However, if you start removing ite...
