Sharepoint 2010 masterpage editing questions

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi, I have a Sharepoint design which I am trying to customise in SP2010. I can't make a new masterpage but I can copy an existing one. Why? I copied default.master. Do I need to keep any of the existing elements like Site Actions? Because this needs to exist if I choose to edit the site page. But of course for a read only user this won't display (is a shame this gets in the way of the design though). Please advise and provide any other useful tips. Thanks

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: Browser compatible infopath forms are not open in web browser for editing


I created a browser enabled form with InfoPath 2010. I then published the form by selecting the option "Publish form to a SharePoint library" and then selected "Form library" and finally selected "Create a new form library". As a result, a new form library was created.When I click on "add document", the browser opens a new form, which I can fill and save successfully. However, after the form is saved, whenever I click on the form name in the form library to edit it, the browser "opens with" dialog box opens, asking for an XML editor software. In other words, the form does not open in browser for editing even on systems that do not have InfoPath installed.

The form is browser compatible and the form library is configured to open browser-enabled forms in browser. The issue is that the form hyperlink is directly pointing to form XML file rather than pointing to InfoPath form services URL.

I would really appreciate, if someone tells me how I can edit the form in browser.




Which questions don't go to SharePoint 2010 forums

(work in progress)

This is to some extent based on a post that was necessary in the earlier SharePoint forums.

Here's a list of topic areas that have no place in the SharePoint 2010 forums

1. Questions on earlier SharePoint versions (STS; SPS 2001; WSS 2.0; SPS 2003; WSS 3.0; MOSS 2007).

These continue to go to the original SharePoint forums here:

2. Questions on Project Server 2010.

There is now (November 2009) a Project Server 2010 forum here

In time additional Project Server 2010 forums may be added in which case they will be listed here

3. Questions

Want to install Sharepoint 2010 and RDS Gateway on same server, multiple questions


Background:  SMB environment, only have 4 servers.  Want to run SharePoint 2010 Foundation and RDS Web Access and RDS Gateway on same 08R2 server.

1. which one to install first, WSS or RDS?  Either one will install IIS and build and bind to the default website, so does it really matter which one goes first?  I seem to remember on old server installing TS WebApp and Gateway first, then WSS3, and TS WebAccess stopping until I added the host header to WSS.

2.  how to enable HTTPS access to both WSS and RDS WebAcess/Gateway?  this failed on a previous server, which I am now migrating to new hardware/OS.  RDS Web Access and Gateway use the default website.  I can make WSS work http with a host header, but not https.  on old server everytime I enabled an https AAM for my WSS site it stopped the TS Gateway service, but I only had one NIC on that server at the time.  My new server has four NIC's.  So, would a valid solution be to restrict the default website (RDS Web Access and Gateway) binding in IIS to one NIC and then restrict the WSS site to another?  I seem to remember adding a NIC to the old server and trying to change the default site binding from "all unassigned" to just one IP and TS Gateway stopped, but I could be imagining that, it's been a while.

Selecting custom masterpage in Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - where and how?


I'm now building a test site just to research on Sharepoint Foundation 2010.  As I know, on previous version (SP2007), we have to install a 3rd party tool to enable selecting a masterpage for WSS 3.0.  And here, the new version Foundation 2010 too, does not has this feature.  So, if I have customised 2 masterpages and would like to apply into two different sites in the same port, how can I apply my custom masterpage?  Unfortunately, the 3rd party tool does not compatible to the Foundation 2010.  I think this is the weakness of WSS3.0 and Foundation 2010, especially when we are requested to have more than 1 masterpage to be applied into the sites.

Does anyone know any way to make Foundation 2010 to enable the masterpage selection?
