Release Notes

Installation Instructions:
1. download the Thought / Tip of the Day Web Part wsp file
2. Install the wsp file and deploy to server farm.
3. If you decide to create a new SharePoint "Thought / Tip of the Day" List to store the Tip of the Day entries, create a new SharePoint List anywhere in the SharePoint site collection. The list needs at least the following 2 columns to hold the entries

5. Configure the following Web Part properties in the Web Part Editor "Miscellaneous" pane section as needed:
1- Thought/Tip Text Field Name: Enter the Column name that contains the Thought / TIP.
2- Background Color: To set the desired Web Part Background color, enter either a HTML color name (as eg. "red") or a hexadecimal RGB color value. Leave this field empty if you don't want to use a specific background color.
You can alternativley enter the name of a List column that holds an individual color setting for each item.
3- Show new thought/tip every day: shows a new thought / tip on every day when clicked. Otherwise, a new thought / tip is displayed on every page refresh.
4- RSS Feed URL: If you want to display a daily thought / tip using an RSS Feed (as opposed to fetching thoughts / tips stored in a SharePoint List), enter the URL of the external RSS feed. You can leave all the above fields empty in this case.
5- Image URL: Enter the SharePoint URL of the desired image to be display.
6- List Name: Enter the desired SharePoint List name.
7- Max number of words displayed: limits the number of words to be display in the web part. If the thought / tip word count exceeds this limit, the thought / tip is truncated and a … (more) link is displayed.
8- Site Name: Enter the name of the site that contains the SharePoint List holding the thoughts / tips:
- leave this field empty if the Library in the current site
(eg. the Web Part is placed in the same site)
- Enter a "/" character if the Library is contained in the top site
- Enter a path if the Library in in a subsite of the current site (eg. in the form of "current site/subsite")
9- Thought/Tip Title Field Name: Enter the desired Library Column name that contains the titles.
