OK, this is just too cool to not share. Earlier today, SharePoint MVP Kanwal Khipple of SharePoint Buzz fame released a very cool Halloween theme for SharePoint 2010. To whet your appetite, here’s a ghastly glimpse at the topmost portion of a page with Kanwal’s “Buried Alive” theme applied:

Alas, much as I was hoping to be able to report here that I’d successfully installed the theme myself, it turns out that (like most end users), I don’t have access to alter the Master Page of any of the SharePoint sites to which I have permissions … which, all things considered, is probably a Good Thing. Having said that, however, the installation instructions that are provided alongside the theme itself look to be devilishly simple to follow, clocking in as they do at just five fiendish steps. So if you’ve got the requisite permissions to alter your portal’s Master Page (and won’t get in trouble for doing so), why not arrange for a spooky surprise for your colleagues as they begin the work week this coming Halloween Monday?
Have a happy Halloween, everybody!
