No MOSS Required: Free Web CMS Built on SharePoint Services

CompleteSharePoint.NET was built by Tommy Segoro, a Practice Lead working at L7 Solutions in Perth, Western Australia. It is currently a beta solution. Released on CodePlex in October of last year, CS.NET has been downloaded over 519 time to date.

CompleteSharePoint Functionality
It is said to have some, but not all, of the same functionality as MOSS — SharePoint Server 2007. Some of these features include:

  • Custom base publishing content type (named CompleteSharepoint.NET Article Page)
  • Custom site actions menu
  • Custom administration pages located in _layouts
  • Custom controls such as page editing toolbar
  • Custom field controls (eg. publishing page content field using FreeTextBox)
