This is a list of all custom solutions I have published on this blog over time. These solutions are generic and intend to fill particular gaps in SharePoint and CRM. They are ready-to-go, so download, deploy, test and enjoy.
If you have some ideas you would like implemented then just drop me a line. If time permits and it’s challenging/interesting enough I might just develop it :D.

I am wondering if you know how to make Web Parts collapsible in SharePoint 2013?
Hi Patrick, I just had a look and the checkbox to select the web part and show the context menu is not visible for me (even when I’m an admin user) when the page is in read mode in SP2013. Is this what you are referring to? If so, I have not noticed this before and am not sure of the cause. I have asked the question on Twitter, I’ll let you know if I have some answers.
If you were referring to implementing some kind of customisation to achieve this, then you could look at using jQuery, e.g. http://www.lifeinsharepoint.co.uk/2011/12/27/quick-tip-jquery-collapsable-webparts-sharepoint-2010/. The code in that link will need some adapting though as it is for 2010 and not 2013.
