SharePoint High Level Differences between a Publishing Site and a Team Site

A publishing site and a Team Site are common in many ways but there are some differences. Here I am going to talk about the High level differences without going Into too much of detail.

One of the main differences between a Publishing Site and a Team Site is that a publishing site can be customized to a larger extent than a Team Site. If you are planning to Install a 3rd Party tool like Akumina or Live Tiles, you could either deploy it on a publishing site or you could deploy it on the Team Site and activate the Publishing Features under Site Settings.

Some of the libraries that are available by default on a Team Site are not there on a Publishing Site. Some of them are News Feed and Calendars.

Finally, A Team Site is light weight whereas a Publishing Site requires more resources. So, while creating a new site you would need to think about the requirements and accordingly make a decision on which type of site you would need to create.

 

PHP-strpos function

The strpos function in PHP is used to determine whether a string is contained in another string.

For Example

If there is a string A that contains the following words “The cat is sleeping” and you have another string B that contains this “cat”

One could use the strpos function to determine whether string B belongs to any element is string A. In this case the word cat from string B is present in string A

 

The If Statement

 if( (strpos($A,$B)!==false){

echo “True”;

}

else{

echo “False”;

}

Will return True since string B belongs to string A

The common use of this function is to determine the position of the first occurrence of the substring in a string

strpos(string,substring)
