Issue with Picture Library Slideshow Web Part after export/import of site collection (SP2010)

  

I recently exported/imported an SP2010 site collection from Dev to Prod. The site collection had about 90 sites, which were all driven from a site template. Once the export/import had taken place, I created an additional 15 sites (in Prod), using the original site template that was created in the Dev environment. Everything seemed to be working just fine, but I found an issue with the Picture Library Slideshow Web Parts (PLSWP) on all the sites that were created in Prod. Basically, I have a Picture Library, and any pictures added to this library show up in the PLSWP. The original 80 site's PLSWP works fine, but the new 15 sites will not show the pictures through the PLSWP (the viewer just shows up blank). Here is the difference in the html output of the picture viewer:

 PLSWP from Dev:

Programmatically activating an admin-approved form template to a site collection?

  

Hi,

I am currently programmatically generating infopath forms with code-behind, and for each generated form, I need to be able to host the form template as a content type. Since I have a farm solution, I know that I would usually have to publish manually to admin-approved form template as opposed to form libraries or content types directly and afterwards create content types which reference those form templates. I was wondering what I would need to do to achieve the following results:

1) Programmatically activate a form template to a site collection (this is the big question mark for me)

2) Programmatically generate a content type which references said form template (I believe I already have this part down using the SP Object Model)

The environment I am building in uses SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Edition, InfoPath2010, .NET 3.5, VS 2010.

Any assistance would be MUCH appreciated.


Activate Features on Site Collection creation via Site Template

  

I'm attempting to make my first Site Template, and I'm using some of the existing OOB template onet.xml files as a guide.  One thing I can't figure out is how to select which Features you want to be activated on the site collection creation from your template.

Also, how can you find a list of all available Features and the Scopes the are available for?


sharepoint security groups, ACL of site collection or subsite need to move in to sql server 2008 usi

  

HI Team,

I am new to sharepoint here is my query. i am working on MOSS 2007, SQL server 2008

I want to move the sharepoint security groups, ACL(access control list), user groups all the security and permission related data to sql server 2008 from a particular site collection or subsite. After getting the data in to sql server we should be able to update the users from sql server itself which should reflect in sharepoint sites.


No longer have the ability to move webparts to different zones on the default "team site" template

  
I noticed today that one of the default site templates that i most widely use in sharepoint 2007 -the "Team Site" template when used in sharepoint 2010 i can no longer move webparts on the main home page from one zone to another from the browser in sharepoint 2010, or specify where they should be when creating them.   I am able to do this if i create a blank site, but that would also involve creating all the neccesary document libraries and  other team site lists.  I suppose as a last resort i could make my own template off of the blank site template that is similar to the team site template. but i am curious as to why this has been setup this way, or if anyone else has noticed this behavior

workflows when saving site as template with content

  
I have have a MOSS 2007 site on a production server with custom workflows.  I saved the site as a template with content and used the template to create a sibling site.  I am testing it and the workflows aren't working.  Is this to be expected? I have read that workflow don't work when saving between development and production, but I can't find anything that addresses both sites being on production. Will I need to recreate the custom workflows by hand? 

Is there a way to update the template of a site?

  

I am looking for a best practice for managing and applying site design changes.

For instance, in another platform, I could release a site for testing or production use, so content would be added.  At some later date, a change* to the design would be needed and I would take a copy of the design only, make the change and then apply the updated design to the existing site. Content would be maintained but the new design changes would be applied. 

      *A change might mean creating new functionality on an existing element, adding new elements or changing an existing element.

How best should this be done in WSS?

Thank you in advance!
