Friends? The answer is an emphatic yes! With software in general, if you don’t like the way it looks you’ve just got to deal with it, branding notwithstanding. Not with SharePoint: if you don’t like it you can mold it into whatever you want it to look like with some simple CSS. Anything: with CSS you can change the way links look, the way they behave, you can change a specific link, add effects, modify colors, images, sizes, borders, shading, shadows, spacing, margins, padding, anything! SharePoint includes an OOTB method to achieve this as well, with the Content Editor Web Part. Add it to any page, edit it and insert any CSS. SharePoint will even "fix" your broken CSS.
On behalf of the Herculean efforts of a few key folks here at Corridor, I wanted to provide the appropriate kudos to thank those in the know for getting our corporate blog up and in action! Yes, a long time in coming; however, we have found that its importance cannot be understated as a complement to our other thought leadership, communications, and research. And, in this regard, I guess you could consider us just a bit more social!
