SP 2013: Extending the SuiteBarDelegateControl by adding the Title Breadcrumb control

SP 2013: Tip - Change the "SharePoint" text in the top left corner.

Custom list definitions with custom forms – changing master page

As many of you might have experienced when you create your own custom list definition, you can also create your custom forms (DispForm.aspx for example).
