Topic: SharePoint Branding Rebooted - OnPrem or Online

Alter the look, feel, and even functionality of every page in every SharePoint Site in your entire Site Collection!

  • No Solutions
  • No Features
  • No SharePoint Add-Ins (Apps for SharePoint)
  • No Add-In Webs (App Webs)
  • No Composed Looks
  • No Custom Master Pages
  • No Design Manager
  • No Publishing Page Layouts (unless you need them)

Apply your "brand" (jQuery, custom JavaScript, custom CSS) with the click of a button, remove it just as easily. Update your assets using whatever editor suits your fancy: Notepad, Notepad++, Visual Studio, SharePoint Designer, Sublime Text, Hot Dog Pro (is that really still a thing), etc.

Every page? Yep... including application pages (_layouts), Web Part pages, wiki pages, dialog pages, publishing pages (if you insist); including every page in all future child Sites as well.

Change virtually anything you want:

  • Change the color, size, background of virtually any element
  • Hide elements that you don't want the user to see, provide a UX to resurface it if you wish
  • Alter the color for each calendar in SharePoint Calendar Overlays
  • Remove "Pages" from the SharePoint breadcrumb
  • Add animations and transitions, anything jQuery can do really
  • And so much more!

If you have a general understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and need to brand SharePoint, this session is for you.
