Quickest SharePoint Upgrade Ever

I returned to a client site yesterday to help resolve some post upgrade issues that had been identified during UAT. At the top of their list of issues was the fact that SharePoint had clearly not been upgraded properly!

What caused them to think this? Their upgraded out of the box 2007 homepage that had never been modified:


I edited the page, changed the references to ‘2007’ to read ‘2010’ and published the page. This made the users happy and we moved on to solve some real problems. Perception is fact in the eyes of users…

I couldn’t stop laughing about this all the way home that evening.
