SharePoint Tips and Tricks

While working on SharePoint projects, i have often tumbled across these common issues:
1) Masking the user’s email and other details.
2) The restrictive read access for lists that would prevent anonymous users to see the all items page but it will allow a webpart running in anonymous context to read the list items.

A possible solution for this is as follows:

1) User email details – disable the page – add a webpart or a handler that redirects the req. (this is my understanding of the only way this can be done)
2) Restrictive read – make sure you used the publishing template and make sure this is active:

Use lockdown mode:

The following table details the default permissions of the limited access permission level and the reduced permissions when lockdown mode is turned on - Read more here...
