Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.

Publishing site template saved using /_layouts/savetmpl.aspx

A trick we used in MOSS 2007 doesn't seem to work in SharePoint 2010 although it seemed to work for someone who asked the same question in this forum.  We know publishing site do not have the "Save as site template" as an option in the site settings so we used <site>/_layouts/savetmpl.aspx to save the site template.  Unfortunately, new site created using the saved template is throwing a 404 error.  And the site was actually created (can see in View All Site Content).  We need to be able to easily create sub-sites with the same look and feel and set of document libraries/lists.  Any advice? 

Can not delete large sharepoint site

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can suggest how I can get rid of a large site (over 10 G) which we don't need anymore. When I try to delete it from the Settings.aspx page I guess process get stuck somewhere - progress bar just sit at around 25% for an hour. When I cancel out of the delete page - I find the site structure is intact. No clue in the ULS logs - all it says deleting that particular site.... The worse thing is that it makes the whole portal inaccessible...probably due to slowness. I even tried thorugh the STSADM deleteweb command - same result. I then thought it would be better deleting the whole site collection where that particular site belongs to from the Central Administration. No luck....when it takes the site down I see many different types of application log warnings (1309, 2262) and errors (5586, 6398).  I found another similar posting here - but really want to avoid the answer from that (I explained why at the end of that post). I'm hoping anyone else can suggest me a way to delete this site. Also any suggestion how long it might take to delete a site of that size? This is a MOSS 2007 farm with SP2 applied and SQL server 2005 at the backend. Thank you in advanced!

Delete Site in Collection

Hello! I have a site collection with 100+ subsites and I needed to remove one the subsites. I usually go into the subsites site settings and choose "delete this site" and it has always worked without issue. Well...I had a large site(10 GB) I needed to delete last week so I used my ususal method. The first thing I noticed was system performance tanked. You couldn't even navigate to sites. When the delete finished all that was gone was the security groups. All the site content was intact. I thought possibly there was a problem with the site being so large so I deleted all the libraries and lists using sharepoint designer and/or the UI. I verified nothing was in the sites recycle bin or the site collections recycle bin and tried deleting again. Same results. A colleague suggested I try deleting from the command line (stsadm.exe -o deleteweb). Results were the same. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can delete this subsite. Thanks in AdvanceRenee P.S. I also tried deleting from Sharepoint Designer with same result.ReneeDD

Can't inherit default page layout on a publishing site?

  Hi,   Implementing SharePoint for the first time.   We've got a page layout that we want to use as a default. We've got it set as the default in the top site in the site collection. However, when I create a Publishing Site with Workflow, it doesn't default to using the right layout, despite the fact the sub-site's Site Settings / Page Layouts show that it it set to inherit the default page layout from its parent.   Oddly, when I create another type of site, e.g. a Blank Site, it does inherit the default layout.   Any suggestions?   :|Ben

Using ScriptSrc to reference a javascript on publishing site breaks the Asset Picker dialog?


I'm using a site scoped feature to add a reference to jquery.js:


After activating the feature for a publishing site I no longer can insert a picture from Sharepoint. The Asset Picker dialog throws a script error when I select an image:

Line: 3377
Char: 5
Error: 'style' is null or not an object'
Code: 0
Url: http://www.mysitename.com/_layouts/1033/cmssitemanager.js 

My workaround is to add the .js reference directly in the masterpage instead, that does not affect the Asset picker. The error is easilly reproduced on my development server + a production server. I'm hoping anyone else has solved the issue because I would really like to use the cool ScriptSrc also for publishing sites.
