Adventure (doesn’t) work – SharePoint Theme
Let’s put aside the fact that the « Adventure works » theme in SharePoint has justified text everywhere…;
I have been wondering how to change the company in the footer of the page:
Well, it is defined in the master page OrangeSingleLevel.master with:
This mean that modifying the company name requires to:
- change the master page on each site that uses this theme to use your own resource file, eg. replace Resources:cms by Resources:brandedcms
- create a new resource file brandedcms.resx and package it in a solution1
- ask a system administrator to deploy this solution
In a word: it’s painful. My recommandation: don’t follow Microsoft practices.
I think the best practice is to place such variables in a list, so that anyone can edit them ; resource file should be used only to store (language dependant) constants.
