Publishing Site as www.contoso.com

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello, I am looking to make a publishing site the web site for the company. When I go to www.contoso.com it will take me to the normal Moss 07 portal and not the publishing site. Where is the setting for me to make the publishing site as the default web site? -IRXFIRE

Publishing site template saved using /_layouts/savetmpl.aspx

A trick we used in MOSS 2007 doesn't seem to work in SharePoint 2010 although it seemed to work for someone who asked the same question in this forum.  We know publishing site do not have the "Save as site template" as an option in the site settings so we used <site>/_layouts/savetmpl.aspx to save the site template.  Unfortunately, new site created using the saved template is throwing a 404 error.  And the site was actually created (can see in View All Site Content).  We need to be able to easily create sub-sites with the same look and feel and set of document libraries/lists.  Any advice? 

How to add List item in search results for anonymous in a publishing site?

Hi all,   For now, results in Library (document set or not) are shown and the link is the binary file. This is ok. But for list, anonymous users can't view results. As logged in I see the items in the AllItems.aspx page. How could I allow this result to be viewed by anonymous users too?      Thank you,   Benoit Pironet

Office Sharepoint Server Publishing Infrastructure is missing in site collection feature SharePoint

Can't inherit default page layout on a publishing site?

  Hi,   Implementing SharePoint for the first time.   We've got a page layout that we want to use as a default. We've got it set as the default in the top site in the site collection. However, when I create a Publishing Site with Workflow, it doesn't default to using the right layout, despite the fact the sub-site's Site Settings / Page Layouts show that it it set to inherit the default page layout from its parent.   Oddly, when I create another type of site, e.g. a Blank Site, it does inherit the default layout.   Any suggestions?   :|Ben      

Publishing features for Blog Site?

Using ScriptSrc to reference a javascript on publishing site breaks the Asset Picker dialog?


I'm using a site scoped feature to add a reference to jquery.js:


After activating the feature for a publishing site I no longer can insert a picture from Sharepoint. The Asset Picker dialog throws a script error when I select an image:

Line: 3377
Char: 5
Error: 'style' is null or not an object'
Code: 0
Url: http://www.mysitename.com/_layouts/1033/cmssitemanager.js 

My workaround is to add the .js reference directly in the masterpage instead, that does not affect the Asset picker. The error is easilly reproduced on my development server + a production server. I'm hoping anyone else has solved the issue because I would really like to use the cool ScriptSrc also for publishing sites.


Activating Publishing Infrastructure at the Site Collection level


My task is to my company's branding solution to two new sites. I can upload the solution but I cannot activate it. I can't activate it because SharePoint Publishing is turned off on the sites. When I attempt to turn on SharePoint Publishing, I get this error:

The feature being activated is a Site scoped feature which has a dependency on a Site Collection scoped feature which has not been activated. Please activate the following feature before trying again: SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa
The Site scoped feature being activated has a dependency on hidden Site scoped feature 'FeatureDefinition/22a9ef51-737b-4ff2-9346-694633fe4416' (ID: '22a9ef51-737b-4ff2-9346-694633fe4416'). Hidden features cannot be auto-activated across scopes. There may be one or more visible Site scoped features that auto-activate the dependent hidden feature.

I can't seem to locate the Publishing Infrastructure feature. The Site Collection List provides information about each site collection but no access to their features. How do I turn on Publishing Infrastructure?

Hide ribbon, Hide site content/recycle button. Caledar overlay. Document publishing. Other questions


I have a 2010 farm operational and working well. I had a few questions.

(1) How to disable ribbons from appearing on the top (for anonymous sites).

(2) When I move the mouse over a tab in the top bar, how do I display a banner. It was easy enough in 2007, but I am not sure in 2010.

(3) I have disabled quick launch. But it still displays all site content and recycle bin. Is there a way to not to show those.

(4) Calendar overlay - Is this to display multiple calendars in one calendar using different colors to differentiate them. But if I had calendars in different site collections, then I guess due to the gallery boundary, I cannot calendars from multiple site collections.

(5) Document publishing - For some reason, this was easier in SPS 2007. I am not able to get it to work in 2010. Basically update a web page dynamically from a word document. Could anyone kindly provide a link. Also, would I be able to update a page in one site collection from a document from another site collection.

(6) Is it possible to move a folder/doc from one document library to another in one site collection (without webdav). Further, can I move a document library from one site collection to another.

Please advise. Sorry if I asked too many questions in the same post. I am newbie and this is my first post.
