Copy Source as HTML in Visual Studio 2010

SharePoint Archiving Journal I was working on my first SharePoint 2010 post today since I actually installed some bits and quickly discovered that I did not have Copy Source As Html working with Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2.  If you’re a blogger like me, you will find that you are quite addicted to this useful tool as it makes pasting good looking code segments quite easy.  Unfortunately, they haven’t released an installer that works with Visual Studio 2010 yet, so I decided to see if I could figure out how to get it to work.  Now, I’m not expert on Visual Studio Addins, so it took...

Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException was unhandled by user code Message="Cannot complete this action.\n\nPlease try again." Sour... (more)

Displaying Social Ratings in Search Results

I absolutely love the new social ratings site columns that we can easily add to existing SharePoint 2010 document libraries.  It gives such an easy way for end users to rate documents in an interface they are probably already familiar with because of iTunes. I got to thinking.  Seeing these social ratings in my search results sure would be useful.  It would also be nice to be able to query them.  How do we do that?  We use managed properties of course.  I did some digging and found out that there isn’t a managed property already out there for this so we need to create one.  We ...
