How to changes sites and categories in Site Directory


I just tried to create my first Site Directory on a test site collection.  It looks like it comes up with some default categories upon creation: Division, Region, Top Tasks.  I am trying to edit this.  I first click on Edit Page then I try clicking on the Edit Sites and Categores link in the Categores web part.  However, the system seems to hand and then I get this pop up error message:

 Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?
The page took too long to save.  Press OK to continue, or Cancel to say on the current page.

Why would I get that error, and how do I edit what appears in the web part (since it bears NO resemblance to my site collection at all)?

How come it doesn't automatically build a site map based on what is actually in the collection?

There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

Create Web Site vs Web Application


I follow the tutorial and creted a web site for my company sales system. One of my collegue mention we use the wrong templet, we should use Web application for company application.

Should i continue using web site or change to web application? We are creating application for company sales, inventory, hr ,etc where possible more than 1000++ user. And during month end, it will be high traffic and transaction. can Web Site Template with BLL and DAL handle it? or i just need a powerful server?

Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, S.

Many thanks in advance

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.

How to develop a Create Site Wizard


When you create a new site in a SharePoint site collection, you get the first screen where you enter the site name, description, choose a site template etc. How can I develop a similar screen where I give users ore options to enter other information such as entering the name of default documents library, default list etc.?

I have created a custom site template that contains a document library with some preloaded documents, a task list with predefined tasks etc. My manager has asked me to develop a wizard like page that allows a user to create a site by selecting this custom template and entering a document library and task list name of their choice. There are some business reasons/logics behind all this, but I am just presenting a simpler version here to get me going.

I would greatly appreciate any advice, code sample, references, etc.
