 20 sample Master Pages for the “Fantastic 40” Application Templates for WSS 3.0

For an overview of the sample Master Pages, go here Or you can download them directly from here.

The Master Pages were built using the new Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) and Master Page editing tools in Office SharePoint Designer 2007, and there are 4 styles (Block, Clarify, Horizon, and Reverse), each with 5 distinctive colors (blue, green, orange, purple, and red).

Here are some live demo instances of the Master Pages:

SPLSBackup – Perform non-intrusive Site Collection level backups

Performs a site collection level backup/restore (just as STSADM -o backup/restore) yet locks the site before backing up as noted in the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article: “Supported scenarios for using the Stsadm.exe command-line tool to back up and to restore Windows SharePoint Services Web sites and personal sites in SharePoint Portal Server 2003”

Backing Up and Restoring Web Sites


SPPurgeList – Purges a SharePoint list/Document Library of all items and folders

Allows you to purge the contents from any list or document library on WSS 2.0/SPS2003 or WSS 3.0/MOSS 2007. If you need to retain a list/document library itself (Maintaining its original GUID) without completely deleting the entire list/document library and re-creating, this tool can help. You could certainly use Web Folders (WebDAV) to clear the contents, but users stand the chance of accidentally deleting the contents of the forms folder which is not desirable. As well, you could script and automate the task using this tool if you desired.


SPIEFolder – Imports/Exports SharePoint Document Libraries

Allows you to either Import a file system folder (And all files and subfolders) into a SharePoint Document Library, and also export a SharePoint Document Library to the file system for WSS 2.0/SPS2003 or WSS 3.0/MOSS 2007. This tool completely replicates the document libraries folder hierarchy to the file system when exporting, and replicates the folder hierarchy from the file system to the document library when importing.
