SharePoint 2013 Masterpage for SharePoint 2010 – Sandbox Solution



After some additional tweaking the the design and trying to match the functionality of the SharePoint 2013 interface as much as i could, a SharePoint 2013 masterpage is now ready for testing by my blog visitors.  The SharePoint 2013 Masterpage for 2010 has the following features:

  • SharePoint Sandbox Solution – Office 365 Compatible
  • Custom Site Actions Menu Link
  • “Focus on Content” – hide site navigation to allow user to focus on content only
  • Get the SharePoint 2013 interface without having to upgrade :)

As with my previous solutions they are all available via Codeplex and should you have any positive comments please leave them either here or on codeplex.

Thanks and I hope you all enjoy.

    I have added this masterpage for my site. Now the subsites show up in the side navigation too and there is no way to remove them. I have not opted to display them in “Navigation” settings. How can I remove them?
