Dressing Up Connections - Social Rendering
Thu, Sep 5th 2013 8:10a   David Greenstein
I recently worked on a project where we had to service two different user types with one deployment of Connections. The customer had extensive UI and feature changes for the smaller of the two groups of users. To achieve this goal, I decided to solve their particular challenge with Social Rendering and API portlets to develop the extranet UX and enable the internal users to use Connections virtually out-of-the-box.

Tue, Sep 25th 2012 8:09a   David Greenstein
While working on one of the first 2.5 to 4.0 upgrades with my team, here are some of our lessons learned: You MUST use an HTTP server when running features from more than one WAS profile.
