SharePoint Error: “The page you selected contains a list that does not exist” or “The SPListItem being updated was not retrieved with all taxonomy fields”


20 October, 2015

If you add a managed metadata field to a view in SharePoint, you might get the cryptic error message “The page you selected contains a list that does not exist”. Variations of this error can be seen when you, either using a browser or via code, try to update a list item and receive the following error: "The SPListItem being updated was not retrieved with all taxonomy fields”.

Getting innerText to work in Firefox and return/set only first node of jQuery.text()


21 September, 2015

Firefox uses the W3C-compliant textContent property instead of innerText. Most other browsers, such as Chrome and IE, use innerText and, to make things worse, IE does not support innerText. Also, when using jQuery.text(), all text inside the node plus its child nodes are returned, which is not the same as innerText or textContent. To get around this, I wrote a small jQuery plug-in.

Development environment for low-trust apps: Configuring and using SSL


09 September, 2015

SSL/HTTPS is a required step for most SharePoint installations and deployments. The entire web community is moving towards secure communications. However, I still see most development environments set up using HTTP only and I still see many issues when moving to test and production environments, such as mixed content blocking. In this case, the browser will not load resources such as data sources, scripts, CSS files and images as they are in HTTP while the main page is in HTTPS.
