Internet facing SharePoint site - user shouldn't have to log in to change the langague

Hello, I am using SharePoint 2010 for Internet sites.  Anonymous access has been enabled.  Language packs have been installed so that users can switch to different languages as required.  However, the only way for a different language to be selected other than the default is for the user to log into the site and then the option would be displayed.....This is an internet facing site with anonymous access therefore users shouldn't have to log in to change the language.  Can someone guide/advise on switching the lanuguage of the site without loggin in. Thanks, Shelley

Publish sharepoint site on the internet?


Hi Folks, after reading a few other Q&A's on here thought i'd just have to write one myself and see what sort of responses i got.

I have created an intranet and internet website on a Server2008r2 box with sharepoint 2010. What i want to do is now publish both these on the internet. The intranet one so that people i work with can log in to it and use it for controlling documents and calendars etc, and the internet one so that I have a public accesible website for anyone to look at.

The sites have been created. The server is connected to the internet with a dedicated line. I just wan to get them out there now and start using them.

Noted on one of the other posts i may need an connector licence. Which is fair enough, but really what i want to do just now before i get things out in the open area of the net is just be able to connect to the sites myself for testing from any other internet connection.

So far im having no luck.

Whats the quickest and best route to making sure i can at least access the sites from the internet?

Any help would be great but this is however my first time working with Sharepoint and IIS properly so help IN DETAIL would be even more appreciated.

Im used to just using online hosts and not hosting myself.

Host-named site collections and content deployment jobs (SharePoint 2007 Internet facing Web Sites)



I have an editing web application with multiple site collections (only accessible internally on a dedicated port), and I've one public facing web application (on port 80). Now I want to create several host-named site collections in the public facing web application (to limit the number of web apps in the farm), and then use content deployment jobs to push the content from the site collections on the editing web app into these host-named site collections.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
Do you see any issues?

Hi guys, first of all I don't want exactly to publish SPF server to Internet, but place it in DMZ and make available from Internet.

Any ideas or links are highly appreciated!

Creating and sharing new sharepoint site to internet, limiting user access

I am a new hire into an existing business as I.T. I know the networking, I know the computers. The owner now wants me to learn Sharepoint among some other things. They currently use WSS 3.0. I have been reading up on this for the last month. I think I am ready to extend the current site to make it an Internet site so the employees can login. Some other things we would like to do I have read up on and it looks like they can be done, things such as inventory tracking in collaboration with QuickBooks and creating a website / portal for clients to have a unique login on and can see the status of their jobs in custom SharePoint lists. As far as I can tell the clients need an AD account. However, apart from that I am not sure what to do. A little background.  The company has multiple clients, and we ship things out daily to those clients.  We use Sharepoint to track the status of the jobs as they progress through the stages ultimately going to delivery. There is one common page that lists all the jobs by all clients that is updated constantly. We would like to allow multiple (different) clients/logins and have a page customized for each client.  For example, you are a client and go to www.companyname.com/sharepointsite.html.  From there you would get to a portal page with a login. Once logged in you will be presented with the Shar

anonymous users vs intranet users in sharepoint 2010 internet facing sites




We have sharepoint 2010 internet facing sites where inside custom master page we have security trimmed control which hides site actions for general users.

Now we have anonymous access enabled. So any body can access this site.

Now even if user is author or from intranet , he can not see site actions as we do not have any sign in link.

How to automatically show site actions to users from intranet and with proper rights and hide siteactions to anonymous users?
