How to automatically enable web part connections when creating a publishing page based on a custom p


I have created a simple custom page layout in SharePoint Designer, added a couple of web part zones, and a custom web part on each zone.

These web parts have a custom provider-consumer set of interfaces. I configured the connection between the web parts in SharePoint Designer (using Add Connection wizard), and saved the page layout.

After that, I checked in the layout and approved it in SP's web interface.

Finally, I created a Publishing Page based on my layout, but the connection between the web parts was not set. I can set the connection manually and it works fine, but I would like the connection to be automatically set on each page I create based on the layout.

Is this the expected behavior? If so, is there a way to configure the connection automatically either programmatically or declaratively?

Is there a step I'm missing?

Customize content query web part in custom page layout


I am trying to build a custom page layout which should have the following web parts:

1. Announcements,

2. Doc Library

3. custom list items

And the data in these web parts should be from the site in which we create this page. For example, if we try to create a page in site A, then the announcements displayed should be from site-A, doc lib that is in site-A...

And I am trying to insert a content query web part in the page layout using sharepoint designer, and modify the query to insert the announcements list in the site. But how can I query to pull the data from corresponding site.

Thanks for the help.

Windows XP: Escape from DLL Hell with Custom Debugging and Instrumentation Tools and Utilities, Part


Building on his article published in the June issue, which demonstrated several ways to get process and DLL-related information from APIs such as PSAPI, NTDLL, and TOOLHELP32, the author presents some unusual ways to get system-oriented info that you can easily integrate in your own toolkit. There are three tools included as samples: LoadLibrarySpy, which monitors an application and detects which DLLs are really loaded; WindowDump, which retrieves the content and a detailed description of any window; and FileUsage, which redirects console-mode applications to tell you which process is using any opened file.

Change part of a page without full postback


I have a page with two columns. Initially, the left column will contain a list of links that are article titles. Clicking on one of the links will display the text of the article in the right column, keeping the list of titles in the left column. Clicking on another title will clear the text of the first article and display the second. Is there a way to accomplish this without having to repaint the whole page? I would rather not have the whole page resent each time a title is clicked, but rather have the page stay as is and only the contents of the right column get cleared and redisplayed. I assume there's a way to do this with JavaScript, but I don't know how and would appreciate some help. Thanks!

how to add a wiki page as a web part


Hi All,

I have created a feature that generates a page and adds a content editor web part, links web part (using elements.xml). Everything works fine but I would like to replace content editor web part with a wiki page that I am going to create.

For example, I copied an excerpt from elements.xml file that adds a content editor web part for the page.

<Module Path="Dependencies/Pages" Url="">
  <File Url="default.aspx" Type="Ghostable">
   <!-- Add the Rich Content Text Editor web part -->
   <AllUsersWebPart WebPartZoneID="Right" WebPartOrder="1">
          <WebPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2" xmlns:iwp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2/ContentEditor">
            <Assembly>Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c</Assembly>
            <Title>Executive Summary</Title>

 Can someone tell me how I can add a wiki page using manifest (elements.xml) file or some other way?

Apply custom.master to "Site Settings" page?


I'm using a custom.master page, which is applied to almost all pages available to READ users.

I'm not sure where this would be applied.

Guidance much appreciated. Thanks!

Sharepoint 2007 - Wiki site - New Pages Not Inheriting Custom Master Page


I am working on a SP site (MOSS not WSS) which is heavily customised away from the OOTB layout. I need to create a Wiki site, which was going well - I've created a master page which displays the miniconsole (this was not visible with our customised layout), and made it the default master page for the site. This has been applied to the two standard pages that come with the Wiki site, however when a new page is created, it seems to inherit the default.master, rather than my custom master page - thus not showing the miniconsole.

When I have created a new page, I am able to use SharePoint Designer to attach my custom master page to it, which works perfectly, however this will not be a viable option going forward as end-users create their new wiki pages.

How can I get the new pages to inherit my master page when they are created?


Slow page load during a list query one time during the day


We have a monitoring tool set to check to see if the home pages for our 3 web apps load in under 60 seconds every 10 minutes.  All 3 web apps load in under 3 seconds on every 10 minute check except for one exception.  One check every day one of the web app's home page takes longer than 60 seconds to load.  This happens at 11:45PM when there is very little user usage on the environment.  The characteristics of this page are as follows: The only thing on the page is a list view web part which was added by the browser.  The page has not been customized with SPD or code at all.  The list that it pulls is a simple links list that has 281 items on it.  The view pulls all 281 items and displays them in sets of 100.  I cannot find any associated event in the server events and/or SharePoint ULS logs nor are there any daily sharepoint timer jobs running at that time.  Our full index happens at midnight with incremental happening hourly.  Our enviroment is 2 WFEs, 1 App/indexer and we have a separate SQL cluster backend.  

Could someone lead me possibly in the direction I should take next in my troubleshooting?   

Adding a custom ASP page to a sharepoint 3.0 site


I have a custom ASP page that I need to add to my sharepoint 3.0 web site.  I created a virtual directory under my website and placed the ASP file.  When I link to the ASP file, I get a 404 page not found.  To make sure I had the correct URL path, I created a test html file and placed in the same virtual directory and linked to it just fine.  I think it has something to do with managed paths and sharepoint trying to control this new ASP content.  I cannot figure out how to exclude this content from managed paths.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue so I can run this custom ASP file under sharepoint 3.0?


QueryEx (Search) results and Custom Page Index


Hi All,

I done a web part which allow the user to query the search.asmx. It return the result fine against which I apply some xslt. However I need a mean to create a Page index. I only return the result based on a range defined in the query.

I need somehow to obtain the number of result the search is returning in total against what I only want to display on the screen.

The only way I sort of figure to do that is by first make a search just to obtain the number of result it will return in total and then make a search defining a range.

Has someone done something similar?
