Site Collection Rollups for WSS or MOSS

Posted by workerthread on March 31, 2008

Over at Lightning Tools, Nick Swan and co have come up with a new SharePoint web part called Lightning Conductor.  This allows you to do cross-site aggregation of list items and includes some features not included in the standard Content Query Web Part that comes with MOSS – for example Lightning Conductor allows you to roll up content from more than one site collection.

Also, the new web part works with both MOSS and WSS which is good news because WSS doesn’t include the Content Query Web Part.  For many smaller organisations, the combination of WSS 3 with Search Server Express and a web part like Lightning Tools will be all they need, providing they’re not interested in Excel Services, Publishing, Forms Services etc.
