Question on using variations on an existing site


I've been using MOSS 2007 for my company's CMS system for the last 2 years or so. Recently, the marketing department has asked us to include the option for multilingual support so naturally, I looked to using variations to accomplish this, however, the site was setup without variations since this was "definitely" not a requirement back when we setup the site.

My problem is when I enable variations, it seems to create new sites off of the root (e.g. English, Spanish, French), however,  it isn't copying anything from the Root site that already exists or any of it's subsites or pages. Is there any to keep my existing site content intact and still use variations, including all of the update features?

Thanks in advance

Is it. Is it really?

Internet facing SharePoint site - user shouldn't have to log in to change the langague

Hello, I am using SharePoint 2010 for Internet sites.  Anonymous access has been enabled.  Language packs have been installed so that users can switch to different languages as required.  However, the only way for a different language to be selected other than the default is for the user to log into the site and then the option would be displayed.....This is an internet facing site with anonymous access therefore users shouldn't have to log in to change the language.  Can someone guide/advise on switching the lanuguage of the site without loggin in. Thanks, Shelley

Alternate Access mapping - Intranet site

Hi All, I'm banging my head against a brick wall here trying to setup an alternate access mapping for an intranet site in SharePoint 2007. I have a default site setup which has the following public default URL: http://SERVERNAME:2586 I want users to access the site using the URL http://Intranet Now from reading about alternate access mappings I thought this should be as simple as adding an internal url of http://intranet under the intranet zone. With this set up I preceded to add the binding to the IIS website. I added the binding with All Assigned IP addresses, port 2586, and host as Intranet. The final thing I did to check this was to add an entry to the hosts file for the server IP address with the host name of intranet. This was followed by a flush of the DNS cache on the server. Whgen trying to access the site using the URL i now get the IIS7 welcome page, but not the SharePoint site I expected. Can anyone point me in the direction of what i've done wrong, Its got me stumped. Cheers, Grant

Is it possible to configure an existing sub site as variation source label in 2010?

Hi, I am trying to configure variations on an existing site. For example, I already have a site collection and a sub site "en-us" that has all the content. Would it be possible to configure this existing "en-us" as my variation source site? If not possible, can anyone suggest me any work-around? This is very critical and hopefully there is a way to achieve this without having to move all the content from "en-us" to my top level site, create variation labels with different names, and then delete the content from top-level site. Please suggest. Thanks, Karthik

How to associate STP file to an existing site in same farm.




single farm


there are 2 web-applications: web-app1, web-app2.


Each webapp has one site collection. that is 


webapp1 has site-collect1


webapp2 has site-collect2


Now for some reason I want to copy site-collect2 to webapp1 as site-collect1.


content-db doesn't work because of database ID issue.


I am trying to use 'save as template' from site-collect2 and can get STP file but how do I assocaite this STP file to site-collect1. I am looking for any STSADM commands or source code that does this. Here also I wanted to create site-template with 'data' but it is giving me error. I will check this later. 

thanks for reading.please suggest.

Adding .aspx page to existing web site



I have a running ASP.NET web site. There is following problem with one of the forms:

One part of submitted data is added to database after "submit" is clicked. (to "table1")

Another part is lost (not added to "table2", and no files uploaded)

I have no source code of that project.

So, because I cant edit existing page, I came to a decision to add new .aspx page to a running application with same functions as existing one.

How can I do that? Or maybe you can recommend some other solution.

Thanks, Alex. 

Change report in VS & deploy.....does NOT overwrite existing report in report manager


I have made some changes to most of my reports that have been previously deployed to report server.  I deploy the changed reports from VS and deployment is successful.  When I run report manager on the server to which they've been deployed, I get the old report.  I have to delete the existing in report manager and redeploy from VS in order to get the updated report in report manager.  This doesn't seem right. 

Am I doing something wrong???



By the way...this doesn't happen all the time.......

Change Site.Master width in CSS


Hi, I'm all new to ASP.NET but not to CSS/HTML.

I created a new WebApplication in Visual Studio 2010. In the CSS document (Site.css) it says:

    width: 960px;
    background-color: #fff;
    margin: 20px auto 0px auto;
    border: 1px solid #496077;

And the first div tag in the Site.Master file is:

<div class="page">

If I change that 960px to 400px for instance, it does not change the width of my document. Even if I write 0px it does not "recognize" the change.


Using HttpModule to change master page dynamically on SharePoint 2010 site


I am trying to change master page dynamically on SharePoint 2010 site. I reviewed some documents (SharePoint: Dynamically Change Master Page: http://ranaictiu-technicalblog.blogspot.com/2009/10/sharepoint-dynamically-change-master.html) and I implemented IHttpModule, added it to GAC, modified web.config(safecontrol, httpmodule, module)
It works good! But I found some problems
1.Never catch the PreInit event for publishing pages
2."/_Layouts/RedirectPage.aspx" page occurred error
3.ContextMenu did not work

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using System.Configuration;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationRuntime;

namespace MasterUtilModule
    public class MasterModule : IHttpModule
        public void Dispose() { }

change people picker to a site level scope


Hi NG,

I created a couple of sites inside one site collection.
Every site uses its own permission groups.
Now I want to constrain the people picker to use only one specified AD - group as search base.
I want to define one AD - group per site.
I found some basic information about 

stsadm –o setproperty –pn peoplepicker-searchadcustomfilter –pv … -url …

Is this the right way?
Is this command working on a site level?
How could I delete filters which are not necessary anymore?

Thanks in advance
