Adding functionality without server installation

While I'm enjoying my paternity leave I will write a few blog posts about extending Sharepoint sites without requiring developing and installing server side web parts. These posts will demonstrate a simple but effective approach for content aggregation and manipulating input forms on sites.

What you need to follow my examples are:

1. Two Invaluable Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) Shortcuts
2. Knowledge about JavaScript, DOM and XMLHTTP objects
3. A clear understanding of the security settings of your sites
4. The downsides to use this approach (will be discussed while moving along)

In the next blog post I will set up the infrastructure code.
