alternative to publishing pages that are editable in sharepoint designer?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
when i create a publishing page, i can only edit the page in the browser.  it's not possible to edit publishing pages in sharepoint designer.  i want to be able to edit my pages in sharepoint designer.  so, i'm using web part pages.   now, i want to change the way the title of the page is generated for my pages.  the template i'm using has this:   <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server"> <SharePoint:ListItemProperty Property="BaseName" maxlength="40" runat="server"/> </asp:Content>   i want to change that.  i can change it in each web part page individually in advanced mode.  i can also change the template so that new pages are generated with my customizations.  but i haven't found any way to automatically apply my customizations to all of my existing web part pages. the page layout feature of publishing pages would allow me to do this.  but then, i wouldn't be able to edit my pages in SD.  is there any way to be able to edit pages in SD, and still be able to apply customizations to all of my existing pages in one shot?

No permission to open a list pages in Sharepoint Designer 2007


We have a sharepoint site with two main lists.

List 1: I could open the pages, make changes BUT cannot create workflows (for the site).
List 2: I could not even open it. I get the message
"You do not have permission to do this operation. Ask your web site administrator to change your permission and try again, or log on with user account that has this permission ...."

I am secondary server administrator and also have 'full control' of the site.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Sharepoint designer - Create alternative edit form



I have a problem with creating a new edit page on an existing list. This list has lots of attributes (>50) and has some 800 rows of content.

I can open het site, create a new page from the existing update page, delete the web part. So far so good. But when I try to add a custom list form with my list and content type selected, I get a time out (Error Code 1460: Timeout Background: xxx).

What can I do about this ? I've tried it several times, but without succes. I tried it at the customer site using the VPN, I even went on site, but it just did not work :-(

Regards, thanks,

Question about SharePoint Designer and master pages on a Win2008 Server running IIS but not SharePoi


We have a website that is in ASP form and wish to convert it to ASP.NET on a new server that is running Windows Server 2008.  Maintenance on the existing site is done via Frontpage.  Since Windows Server 2008 does not use Frontpage extensions we want to shift to SharePoint Designer.  We do have SharePoint MOSS2007 but can't afford additional licenses right now so we have to stick with ASP.NET  I would like to take advantage of master pages to consolidate a large number of include files but I haven't found anything on working with master pages via SharePoint Designer unless it is on a SharePoint server.

Is it possible to have the core of the site in the form of an ASP.NET master page developed in Visual Studio 2007 but with content pages created in SharePoint Designer?  If it is possible can you help me get started?

Thanks in advance!

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list


I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.

Thank you,
