SharePoint 2010 Refinement Panel - Show more link issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi,  I have deployed a Refinement Panel on my search result page. And I have modified the Filter Category Definition to get some Managed Metadata columns. Below are the xml changes: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <FilterCategories>   <Category    Title="Category"    Description="Managed metadata of the documents"    Type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.TaxonomyFilterGenerator"    MetadataThreshold="3"    NumberOfFiltersToDisplay="3"    MaxNumberOfFilters="20"    ShowMoreLink="True"    MappedProperty="ows_MetadataFacetInfo"    MoreLinkText="show more"    LessLinkText="show fewer" />   <Category    Title="Modified Date"    Description="When the item was last updated"    Type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.ManagedPropertyFilterGenerator"    MetadataThreshold="5"    NumberOfFiltersToDisplay="6"    MaxNumberOfFilters="0"    SortBy="Custom"    ShowMoreLink="

Sharepoint 2010 FAST Template Web Parts Documentation (refinement panel)

I am trying to create a prototype for a sharepoint 2010 site for my team and I am working with the FAST Template (out of the box). I am implementing the "Search" Web parts that Include: Refinement Panel, Related Queries, Search Action Links but all of them ask for a refinement schema. I am looking for documentation on this on the MSDN site and I cannot find nothing that really is helping me out. For example, this is the Refinement Panel Caption property for the "Refinement Panel" web part:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <Category    Title="Result Type"    Description="The file extension of the item"    Type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.ManagedPropertyFilterGenerator"    MetadataThreshold="5"    NumberOfFiltersToDisplay="4"    MaxNumberOfFilters="0"    SortBy="Frequency"    SortDirection="Descending"    SortByForMoreFilters="Name"    SortDirectionForMoreFilters="Ascending"     ShowMoreLink="True"    MappedProperty="FileExtension"    MoreLinkText="show more"    LessLinkText="show fewer">
    <CustomFilters MappingType="ValueMapping" DataType="String" ValueReference="Absol

Sharepoint Designer 2010 Corrupting Refinement Panel


I wonder if anyone has seen this...

Using Sharepoint Designer 2010, try to customize the refinement panel in a search results page to show a managed property.

a. with an existing or new refinement panel added to the results page, right click and modify the webpart's "Filter Category Definition" [In my case I simply changed the title of the first category]

b. uncheck the 'use default configuration'

c. Save the page and call it up in a browser.

The refinement panel shows a garbage string of 1000 characters.

The above works OK if the page is edited via a browser, but not using Sharepoint Designer 2010.

Anyone seen this?

Thank you!

Outlook 2010 / Sharepoint authenthication issue


Hi all,

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64bit.

My company uses a hosted Sharepoint server (I guess it's Sharepoint 2010). There's a team calendar, which I would like to connect to my Outlook 2010. Linking it to Outlook works fine until it tries to update the calendar with the Sharepoint server. I shows the following error:

Error (0x80070005) when running the task "SharePoint": "You are not authorized to view the SharePoint list (team calendar). Contact the administrator of SharePoint site. HTTP 401."

So this tells me, I'm not authorized to connect - which is quite clear because Outlook never asked my for any username or password.

Funny thing is when I try to add an internet calendar (Right mouse click on calendars, Add calendar, Internet calendar) and use the url of the sharepoint list, it asks me for username and password, but then fails to add the calendar, as it isn't a webcal (which is OK).

BUT: As Outlook at this moment has the username and password, the exisiting Sharepoint calendar synchronizes correctly. This works until Outlook is being restarted.

Does anyone have an idea why I'm not asked for any authentication? Maybe there's some setting I haven't found yet? It works with trying to add the webcal any time when I start Outlook, but t

Show wiki page library columns on wiki pages- SharePoint 2010

I created a wiki page library in SharePoint 2010 and added a few columns to the library. However, these columns do not show on the actual wiki pages as they did in SharePoint 2007. I looked through the library settings but didn't find anything to turn on this feature. Does anyone know how to do this or if this feature was even included in SharePoint 2010? Thanks.

Cannot Login with Forms Based Authentication to SharePoint 2010 - Issue with the SecurityTokenServic

Please be advised I have followed the steps on http://donalconlon.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/configuring-forms-base-authentication-for-sharepoint-2010-using-iis7/. I have tried to fix the following issue for a week using different farms and SharePoint 2010 installations, however I am getting the following error when trying to authenticate using Forms Based into a Claims site: Cannot get Membership Provider with name FBARoleProvider The membership provider for this process was not properly configured. You must configure the membership provider in the .config file for every SharePoint process. 1. I am certain the membership provider is configured in the SecurityTokenServiceApplication webservice as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using the SecurityTokenServiceApplication website. 2. I am certain that membership provider is configured in the both the Claims Web Application and Central Admin as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using their websites. 3. I know the issue is the SecurityTokenServiceApplication service as I had to set <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" /> to get the error above. 4. I can log into the Claims Based Application using windows authentication, however I am unable to see the users on the people picker despite that I can see them from the application's site on IIS

Link to Traditional File Shares from SharePoint 2010

Forgive me for possibly not using the right terminology.  I'm trying to determine if Sharepoint 2010 supports linking to traditional files shares so they can be presented as Document Libraries inside Sharepoint.  When searching I find lots of info about the capability to map traditional network drives to a Sharepoint Document Library, however that is essentially the opposite of what our customer needs to do.  Instead they want to keep a large repository of files out of a Sharepoint database, but still present it as a document library to their users.  I know that the BDC supports linking to External Data Sources, but I thought that is just for crawling, and searching external data stores.Is it possible to present a traditional file share \\servername\share as a document library (i.e. https://home.widgets.com/Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx) in Sharepoint 2010?It looks like the capability is there especially because Server 2008 R2 refers to default shares as Libraries.Thanks.Matthew

SharePoint 2007 upgrade to 2010 without UI update masterpage issue

I have a public facing site on a SharePoint 2007 farm that will be upgraded to 2010.  This site has a very customized look and feel that will not initially be updated to the 2010 UI.    I have run into one small issue with 2010's handling of legacy 2007 UIs.In SharePoint 2007,  to have a different master page for the application pages and dialog boxes we utilized an HTTP Module to switch the master page on the fly.    After migrating the SP2007 into our 2010 beta test environment the HTTP Module no longer worked properly.   I did some debugging and found out that SharePoint 2010 is returning a NULL value for MasterPageFile property on the pages in the _layouts folder.   I would have expected to see the URL pointing to the application.master page (or dialog.master).   Any ideas if this is a bug in SP2010 beta and will be fixed in RTM or is this the intended behavior.If it is the intended behavior in SP2010 how could I update my HTTP Module to allow the site to continue functioning as it did on 2007?

Sharepoint 2010 Workflow issue

I am using SharePoint Designer 2010 to implement a workflow approval process on InfoPath forms. I added the workflow on an InfoPath and although it shows me that the workflow is completed, it doesn't do what it is supposed to do. It is supposed to send an email to the Manager once the form is submitted and fulfills certain critieria. It doesn't send that email. The workflow is fairly simple: If Form:Department equals (ignoring case) XYZ Email xyz   The type of workflow is "List Workflow". I am not sure where I am going wrong. It looks a simple thing to solve but my mind seems blocked. Any clues??

SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model Issue



I want to make a windows form (VS 2010, C#.NET), where you can connect to a specific list on a SP site and display all the items in a Data Grid View.

I made the connection to x site and y list and display them to a treeview. When i add the list to the tree view, i set the property Tag to it and assign as value the name of the list. Then through the NodeMouseClick event handler i get the current list is selected in the tree view.

The next step i want to display all the items from the list in a Data Grid View (windows form).

The event handler code is here:

    private void farmExplorer_NodeMouseClick(object sender, TreeNodeMouseClickEventArgs e)
        if (e.Node.Tag != null)
