MySite customization

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
  Hello All:   I have been asked to disable blog and document sharing within MySite, first of all is it possible? Secondly, if it is possible then it can only be done by modifying the MySite template? or in other words by creating a custom MySite template? Thanks    SharePoint Developer

Dynamic page customization in WebForms



I am developing an ASP.NET Webforms application for job advertisements. The application is hosted on my own server and enables registrated users to publish job advertisements with the possibility to submit job applications directly from web. The application essentially consists of two parts: job advertisements and job applications sub-apps. 

The job advertisement application uses RESTful approach, implemented as ASP.NET routing and makes no use of different state variables (like viewstate). I provide custom layout of job advertisement webpage for every client using XML serialization of my internal JobOffer class and using XML ASP.NET control with custom XSLT transformation sheet plus CSS to render the custom design. It is all fine and works perfectly.

The second (job applications) part provides users with a custom webform, which is partically dependent upon the original advertisement (regarding the minimal education level, eligible citizenship or work permissions, licences etc.) and can be tweacked using custom CSS. There is, however, no possibility for custom layout of the elements on this page, which provides a multi-tabbed navigation for different parts of job application. Hence the question 1 (see below).

The application is not ready yet, but I intend to keep it hosted on my own server and provide just some ki

MySite creation never completes

Our moss 2007 SP2 farm currently won't create any My Sites.  When a new user visits my.domain.com they get the "Please wait while your personal site is setup for the first time and the default document libraries and lists are created.  This may take several seconds." message but it just sits there forever.

I'm not sure when it stopped working as we only really create new accounts at certain periods during the year - it was working 6 months ago.

I can't find any log messages about the creation/failure - any tips on where to look?


Mysite in the Enterprise


Hi all,

I'm using and administrating sharepoint in the education environment and have a question regarding Mysite.

I have created a central portal for the office I work in for internal use, and within that have created department sites from that. For the sake of it it's hosted at sharepoint.local.office, with MySite being hosted at mysite.local.office.

As other districts join the domain forest I've asked if they would like to have their own sharepoint site. In saying yes I then create sharepoint.districtx.whatever, but have disabled MySite creation for them.

Each district is tied to their onw Shared Services for the purpose of searching and such.

Ultimately I would like to permit each district to have their own MySite domain, but I have glanced through various things and keep seeing this thing that if MySite is deployed a certain way users will get a disconnected experience with sharepoint and other users. I'm just not unserstanding what is meant by the "disconnected experience" any ideas on that?

In addition, I would like each shared service to have their own mysite, if that's possible under their own URL. I'm sure it is, but maybe I'm just missing some central piece that gives me that Aha moment of understanding.

How are other folks using mysites under such an environment?

Extended MySite: Profile picture uploading to the wrong zone.

I'm experiencing a problem where uploading a profile picture, in a MySite, uploads it to the wrong zone.

What I've done is created one web application and configured SSP to use that same one. As a result, the MySite host location is in that same web application:

Default Zone:
http://my.domain.com  <-- default SharePoint site.
http://my.domain.com/personal <-- MySite host

I then extended that web application to enable FBA & anonymous access:

Internet Zone:
http://extended.domain.com <-- extended default SharePoint site.

Now I"m able to navigate to a user's MySite using the extended URL (http://extended.domain.com/personal)...but when I upload a new profile picture in my MySite... it prompts me for new credentials because it's trying to upload to the Default zone (http://my.domain.com).

I found the following thread that talks about this...but there wasn't any resolution:

What is the best practices when configuring a MySite in an extended web application? How can I fix the situation I'm encountering above?

P.S. I tried to change the MySite Host location (via SSP in the Central Administration)

MOSS 2007 and MySite in Outlook

Looking to get the My Site feature working in Outlook 2007 when you right click someone's name in an email.

Problem accessing Sharepoint 2007 MySite


My users are having an issue accessing their mysites.  When they go to the main portal page or any other site and click the link at the top right of the page to go to their Mysite they are thrown into an endless authentication loop.  If they cancel out of the loop the URL in the address bar is for http://mossserver/_layouts/MySites.aspx

For a user to successfully get to their myself they need to enter the full url like http://mossserver/personal/username/default.aspx

Now, I know somewhat how this happened.  It resulted from me trying to delete a user's mysite and I apparently did it wrong but I'm not sure what I did.  It almost seems like I deleted a redirect page or something...

Looking for any ideas.

I know i can go into the Master Page library for the users, upload the new default.master and then set this as default within sharepoint designer, however this will be quite a lenghty task for me to complete for all our userbase.

Could you please advise if there is a quicker way to do this.

Room and Equipment Reservations - Customization of Availability Time per Resource

Hi All, My user wants the Room and Equipment Reservations' look and feel be customized. We are using MOSS 2007. The objective is to change the color of the Time Reserved in the Reserve a Resource link per resource. This can be found in sharepointsite/Lists/Reservations/Availability.aspx. For example: Resource 1 = All Time Reserved is in color Red. Resource 2 = All Time Reserved is in color Blue. Resource 3 = All Time Reserved is in color Green. I used SharePoint Designer 2007 and found out that the Time Reserved is using an image named blueGradient.jpg as background image for container. I tried modifying this but I ended up replacing all for every resource. I tried adding background-color for the code below as well, but is yet unsuccessful in customizing it per resource. <tr>      <td nowrap="" class="resource" style="padding-left:2px; padding-right:2px"><a href="/{$directory}/DispForm.aspx?ID={$id}" onclick="javascript:this.href = unescapeProperly(escape(this.href)); GoToLink(this); return false;" target="_self"><xsl:value-of select="$fieldvalue" /></a></td>      <td class="resource" style="width:100%">       <div class="container" style="{$STA

Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server. Check that the server is available and that the firewall access is configured correctly. If the repository was temporarily unavailable, an incremental crawl will fix this error. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?
