New MAXPATH limits in SharePoint Online and OneDrive

Hello SharePointers,

The Microsoft has incresead the MAXPATH limits in SharePoint Online and OneDrive.

The actual value was 256 unicode characters and now it is 400.

This new limit section applies to un-encoded URLS, and you can use the following formula to calculate the value:

URL = protocol + server name + folder or file path + folder or file path + parameters

So, using this url as sample:

http://www.contoso.com/sites/marketing/documents/Shared%20Documents/Promotion/Some%20File.xlsx

the extracted parts are:

Protocol http://
Server name www.contoso.com/
Folder or file path sites/marketing/documents/Shared%20Documents/Promotion/
File name Some%20File.xlsx

English posts

Hello SharePointers,

From now on, I’ll post in English and Portuguese whenever is possible. When I have some free time, I’ll translate old posts to English, but the main focus here are the new ones 🙂

I don’t even need to mention why I’m doing this: English is one of the most common language if not THE most common one and by doing this I’ll increase my reach throughout the world. “Sharing is caring”.

I just hope one day I would be able to do the same thing I’m doing now but with German. 🙂

Thank you guys! 😀

 

SharePoint Framework quick samples

Hello SharePointers,

I’ve created a GitHub repository that I’ll use to store some SharePoint Framework quick and useful samples.

The repo link is: https://github.com/RARomano/SharePointFramework-Samples. If you like it, please star it 🙂

The first sample shows how to load CSS from a CDN, which is pretty useful. The direct link of that tip is: https://github.com/RARomano/SharePointFramework-Samples/tree/master/AddCustomStyles

I hope you like it 😀
