PixelMill Delivers Custom SharePoint Design for Integrated Device Technology

DAVIS, CALIFORNIA. – December 17, 2010 – Established website design firm PixelMill implemented a SharePoint 2007 intranet site design for Integrated Device Technology (IDT), a premier leader in the analog and digital industry. The project entailed creating custom branding and site layouts in SharePoint to match the look and feel of the client’s external corporate website.
The PixelMill SharePoint team received an intranet design mockup from IDT and duplicated the look in SharePoint using graphic design skills and extensive CSS knowledge. The project came in under budget because the engineering team found a way to create custom class objects around the built-in Web Content Editor instead of developing expensive custom Web Parts.
The original design IDT considered included engineering estimates for creating custom SharePoint Web Parts. Since these were not needed in the solution PixelMill delivered, the client benefited from significant cost savings.
“Our solution to customize SharePoint’s built-in Web Parts provided tremendous cost savings for their corporate intranet redesign versus a custom web application they considered building from the ground up that was estimated at 10 times the cost,” said Eric Overfield, PixelMill’s CTO.
In other words, the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 project delivered by PixelMill enabled a quick and efficient intranet redesign.

    Custom HTML Tags in SharePoint
    To add custom HTML tags such as meta description, keywords, and titles, you will want to edit the page in SharePoint Designer. We first need to start be verifying the existing page and template are in good form and readable by SharePoint. Skipping this step can lead to erroneous error.
    1) Open SharePoint Designer
    2) Edit in Advanced Mode
    3) Goto Design View — This will test the pages and all problems denoted need corrected.
    4) Go to code view and add the custom Title in “asp:Content “ named “PlaceHolderPageTitle”. This should be the TITLE Content /TITLE, omit the title tags.
    5) META Description goes in the “asp:Content” named “PlaceHolderAdditionalPageHead”. This will be the actual HTML code.
    When I followed the directions provided by others, I had a small problem in the ASP which provided an accurate error by following steps 1-3.
