Source Code Posted for SharePoint Forums Web Part by Bil Simser

As I continue to cleanup my projects on CodePlex, I've posted the latest version of the source code for my SharePoint Forums Web Part . This is version 1.2 that was released in August (better late than never?). If you're interested in contributing/enhancing...

SharePoint Forums MSI updated on CodePlex by Bil Simser

Okay, I've fixed the DWP error and created and replaced the MSI that was on CodePlex . Please download the current version from here if you're having problems adding the Web Part to a page (and don't want to manually edit the file). Let me know if there...

Adding SharePoint Forums Web Part to a page by Bil Simser

Okay, stupid error that I need to fix later today when adding the SharePoint Forums Web Part to a Web Part Page. When an assembly with SafeControl entries is installed in the GAC (like this version is) the DWP file requires that the <Assembly> tag...

Performance fix for SharePoint Forums by Bil Simser
