Just got tipped off to a post on Jan Tielens’ blog that details four free web parts he built for SharePoint. There is an MSI that will install into the GAC, or there’s a ZIP that explains how to install it manually for a specific site (I prefer this… esp since I’m in more of a shared environment). The single assembly contains four web parts in Jan’s Leadit.SharePoint.Essentials:
- What’s New: Shows new items added to a SharePoint site.
- MyAlerts: Shows a summary of all your alerts.
- Breadcrumbs: Nice showing where you are in a site/subweb hierarchy.
- **Navigation: **Shows a tree-like view of the a WSS site-subweb hierarchy.
I was looking for something like the Navigation WP for a current project that will have more than 80+ subwebs under a top-level WSS site.
