Full Control users only able to edit Shared Version of page in MOSS 2007

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi, In MOSS 2007 we have a site collection that does not allow the owners to edit pages. There is no broken inheritance in the permissions, and when a user clicks "Site Actions" and then "Edit" they get a toolbar saying they are only editing the Shared Version of the page. No pages are checked out to any other users either and the users attempting this (including the Farm account) are not able to edit these pages. What would be the next steps to debugging this problem as it is not one I have encountered previously?

How to create a single entry page for site collections in MOSS 2007



I have  7 site collections containing a few hundred team collaboration sites. Some users are internal (intranet) but most are external (extranet). Extranet users are experiencing problems with losing links to their sites and forgetting which URLs to use. So I would like to create a single entry page that all users can enter after the logon process, which shows a list of sites they have permission to access, and other user-specific information. Perhaps relevant documents, tasks, recently modified documents etc.

I know this sounds like a 'My Site' but we want to use use a general welcome page instead. We use Windows authentication.
What is the best way of doing this and is it something that can be done in SharePoing Designer or does it need to be done in Visual Studio?

Many thanks in advance.

Applying custom CSS to the MOSS 2007 Calendar control Month view



I have a requirement to use the MOSS 2007 Calendar Control - month view is to apply a custom css to have a look and feel as per our requirements.

We tried applying the custom css to the MOSS 2007 calendar control - month view, it does take the custom css and applies it, but when i click on any date and come back to the calendar control, it changes the CSS of the MOSS calendar control back to the default one.

Let me know if anyone has any suggestion on  how to customize the calendar control for css for our intranet application.

Your response would be highly appreciated.

"Only their own" allows users to edit, then shows access denied page

I am managing a WSS 3.0 portal.  I have created custom lists where a group has contribute permissions.  Under List Settings|Advanced Settings, when I set Edit Access to "Only their own" or "None", my test users can see the Edit Icon and the Edit Item menu option, and bring up the Edit Form.  When they click "OK", they get the Access Denied page.  My experience in that past is that they should not even been shown the option to edit, and they should get Access Denied if they somehow navigate to the EditForm.aspx page.  I even tested this on a brand new site, with three Links lists, each with different Edit Access Levels (All, None, Only their own).  I added one user with contribute permissions.  He had the same result: He could get all the way to EditForm.aspx, but got "Access Denied" when he submitted his changes.  What can I do to fix this?Christopher W.

Authentication for External Users to Access MOSS 2007 Resources

Our MOSS 2007 supports users from two domains that authenticate using windows.  Our clients WindowsXP in domain#1 and WindowsVista in domain#2 (which has presented problems authenticating to MOSS 2007.  I would like to give access to external users outside of those two domains.  However, our management does not want to establish trusts between domains.  What would be the best practice to accomplish this?  Additionally, will MOSS 2010 or Forefront resolve these issues?

Please help me get out of "Version: You are editing the Shared Version of this page"

I created a new subsite for my sharepoint publishing site with all of the same settings as the other subsites. Instead of getting the usual editing menu (check-in, check-out, discard, publish, etc.), I'm getting "Version: You are editing the Shared Version of this page." I am also missing the Page Editing Toolbar option from the Site Actions menu so I'm guessing they are related. Please help, I've been searching all over.

Creating a mobile version of a MOSS 2007 site?

Hi, We've created a MOSS 2007 WCM public site for one of our clients.  Now, they want a mobile version of the site where they can custom what shows up on mobile devices; the content will be different (no images, Flash; some text may be changed; some web parts may not show, etc.)  What's the best approach?  I know about using "/m" to redirect to mbllists.aspx and I've read about how it uses rendering templates, but I can't find anything about controlling what content actually gets displayed.  Oh, and we have both English and Spanish versions of our site (.../en-US/pages/... and .../es-MX/pages/...) Thanks for any suggestions.  - Ed.

MOSS 2007 can only grant permissions to users in the local domain...


Greetings all,

Where ever I go and attempt to add a user to a group or to grant permissions to a user I am never able to select users from other domains.  The only users I can select are users in the domain where MOSS 2007 was installed.  Is there a setting in MOSS that I need to change to be able to add users from other domains to groups in SharePoint?

Thanks for any and all insights.

MOSS 2007 Strange Problem with edit forms, content types and document library columns


I'm having a strange problem and have not been able to track down any useful answers over google.

I inherited a SharePoint site that I am now making some changes to.

I am having problems with one document library.  We had custom edit forms on this document library, which I was finding a pain to maintain so I reset them back to the site definition.  This edit form now shows only those fields that are associated with the Document content type (the only content type - I've deleted the others) on the document library.  There are other columns on this document library that are NOT associated with the content type that I would like to show on the edit form but they are not available when I try to add them to the content type via Settings > Document Content Type > Add from existing site or list columns.  The select columns from drop down is set to List Columns.  The Additional Authors column is just not there.

I CAN see this field on the all items view for the document library, it is there and populated with data.

Setting the Allow Managed content types radio button to NO does not have any impact on which fields are visible on the form- I still see those same fields that have been associated with the Document content type.

Has anyone else seen this or does anyone have any thoughts??

How can I add custom Search Paging webpart in the Search results page in MOSS 2007


I have created a Basic webpart page and added Content editor webpart to extend the functionality of Advanced Search webpart. This is working fine. Also added OOB Search Paging webpart int his page. But when the number of items returned by the Search Core results webpart exceeds the Page size (10) then when I click on the next link in the Paging webpart then all results are lost and retrieved from All Sites scope. Is there any way to hook into the Search paging webpart.?

Please note that in the Content Editor webpart I have used custom search scope.

I need help with regard to this.
