How to rename Add new item in lists.

There is a requirement that is requested so much to change the Add new item label in SharePoint lists to something meaningful. The good about these labels is that they have an ID that you can play with using JavaScript. Each of SharePoint lists has ID that is different from a list to another.

For the custom list you have the ID= idHomePageNewItem,  for document libraries it is = idHomePageNewDocument, you can know the exact ID using the IE developer tool or the Firebug in Firefox.

To change the label, use JavaScript, you get the ID of the anchor and change the innerText property. The code is like this:

 

document.getElementById(‘idHomePageNewItem’).innerText= “my new text”;

That’s it.

Configuration Failed – Failed to create sample data

I was trying to install SP Foundation on my Hyper-V machine, and I faced this problem:

createSampleData

After searching and searching online, some people mentioned activating services and trying to run the configuration wizard again, others mentioned navigating to Microsoft Office Servers folder, which doesn’t exist anymore in the RTM release of SP Foundation, but the same principle works for the RTM. All you need to do is to navigate to the following path:

c:Program FilesWindows SharePoint Services15.0Data, and you’ll find an Analytics folder with a GUIC appended to it. All you need is to share this folder.

Hope this helps someone out there as it took a while for me to resolve.
