Hide / Remove Quick Launch, Main Menu, Ribbon Bar SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010 introduced some more context-aware UI treats.

In case you need to write a new ASPX which you want to display as popup, or you just need it stripped down with less bells and whistles, just add a query string value to the URL references.

Same default.master, just that SP 2010 allows you to hide left navigation (quick launch), main menu, social widgets, welcome menu and top bar just by adding the Querystring parameter ?IsDlg=1 to the URL. Of course if there is already a base ?parameter on the URL you need to minimize, just add &IsDlg=1 to the end of the URL instead.

i.e. http://intranet.contoso.com/_layouts/create.aspx?IsDlg=1

or

http://intranet.contoso.com/_layouts/create.aspx?SomeExistingParameter=foo&IsDlg=1

    Sure, this was the same question we were pondering in our internal corp infrastructure- can we consolidate these servers to maximize efficiency and resource usage? Since the official guidance is that yes, you could install Workflow Manager on a SharePoint server- I see no reason and have no evidence that it would not work for an OWA server as well.

    OWA is basically a pumped-up web application that’s sole purpose is to answer the phone on it’s web service. SharePoint is massively more complex with many more moving parts and dependencies – so logic stands that if you can make WFM work on the same box with SP, getting WFM to work on OWA should be even easier.

    I would suggest you give it a shot, monitor & test carefully, and let us know how it goes!
