SP 2010 OOB Social Icon

Social Icon in SP 2010 are the “I like it” and “Tags and Notes”.

Here is the code to add the social icons to the Top Ribbon next to the user profile button:

<div style="float:left; padding-top:10px;"><SharePoint:DelegateControl ControlId="GlobalSiteLink3-mini" Scope="Farm" runat="server"/></div>

It goes before <div class=”s4-trc-container-menu”> in the master page.


Add My Links to MySite 2010

Laura Rogers did a great post on getting the My Links displaying on MySite 2010


In the post, Laura mentioned to go to Central Admin to add My Links to the top of My Site. I simply went to Site Actions->Site Settings->Top Link Bar to add “/_layouts/MyQuickLinks.aspx” as a new link. (I had Owner permission for My Site collections)

Avinash has this post http://sharepointreporter.wordpress.com/2010/10/21/my-links-missing-in-sharepoint-2010/ which lead me to Laura’s site.

TechNet also has a post on this which has a lot of screenshots (http://blogs.technet.com/b/praveenh/archive/2011/10/12/my-links-in-sharepoint-2010.aspx)

**There is an CodePlex project for MyLinks at http://mylinks.codeplex.com/, installed on preproduction environment, worked fine.

Change orgnization spelling with “s” in My Orgnizational Chart

Recently, I’ve been involved with customising our company’s MySite 2010. One of the requirement is to change the word “Orgnization” appeared on the person.aspx page to have a “s” instead of “z”.

To change the tab, I went to Site Actions-> Site Settings -> Under Look and Feel -> Quick launch, click the edit button next to Orgnization to change it.

To change the My Orgnizational Chart web part, edit the page, edit the web part, change the title of the web part.

In the My Orgnizational Chart web part, down the bottom, there is a link called “Orgnization Browser”. I had to change this one using the following jQuery. The jQuery is added to MySite.master page, inside the head tag.

<!--The following jQuery changes the spelling of "Organisation Browser" in the My Organisation Chart web part on Overview page-->
        $(document).ready(function () {
                .html('Organisation Browser');
