I do not see the icons for functionality in ribbon.

I would very much like to use the functionality in this piece but I have no idea why it is not running. I did notice that there was some code editing in one of the posts and not in another. does this editing need to be done in order for it to work.

any help would be appreciated greatly

Deploying the solution and activating it should be enough. The editing in code was needed in case of SharePoint foundation 2010. However, the WSPs are now available for download for both Foundation and Server.

Hi Nadeem,

I have deployed and activated it but do not see the ribbon icons. does iis need to be restarted? are there issues with IE11? Have you encountered this issue before?

this type of functionality doesn't exist in any affordable (1000-150000 software and I would like it to work if possible.

do any other features need to be turned on/off?

Hi Luis,

IIS restart is not needed. However, you can try restarting it. Moreover, there are no issues with IE 11 as well. Is the versioning turned on in the lists?
Also, can you send me the screenshots of the list ribbon. Did you try to activate the feature in any other site collection or any other SharePoint server?

Hi Nadeem,

Versioning is turned on and I restarted IIS. Here is a screenshot of the ribbon:

Hi Nadeem,

Do you have another email address that I can send to? The codeplex email is stripping the attachments and images.
