Firexfox and SharePoint Forum - a reply shows html code

When users use Firefox to view SharePoint and are replying to a post of the forum\discussion board the reply box and view box already has the HTML code in. For instance the body field contains:- <div><br/><br/><hr/> <b>From: </b>Kevin Shilling<br/> <b>Posted: </b>03 August 2010 15:17<br/> <b>Subject: </b>CHRISTMAS IS COMING...<br/><br/> <div>Yes, I know it is only August but thinking ahead what do you think about hosting our annual Open Evening for local neighbours, suppliers and friends and family. Do you think it is a good idea or not? Let me have your thoughts before the end of September when planning usually starts.</div></div> Anyone come across this and found a fix? Regards Mike

MOSS 2007 Discussion Board reply error

Created a standard webpart Discussion Board and can add discussion items OK but when tried to reply to item got error 'The page cannot be displayed'. After several attempts eventually worked when the item description was only 4 characters or less. looking at the response URL it appears to be excessively long, some elements seem to be repeated in the URL string e.g. https://xx.xxxxxxx.com/theworks/OandR/TDMBE/Lists/Discussion%20Board/NewForm.aspx?RootFolder=%2ftheworks%2fOandR%2fTDMBE%2fLists%2fDiscussion%20Board%2fhave%20consultants%20got%20enough%20supplies&ContentTypeId=0x0107&DiscussionParentID=2&Source=https%3A%2F%2Fxx%2Exxxxxxx%2Ecom%2Ftheworks%2FOandR%2FTDMBE%2FLists%2FDiscussion%2520Board%2FFlat%2Easpx%3FRootFolder%3D%252ftheworks%252fOandR%252fTDMBE%252fLists%252fDiscussion%2520Board%252fhave%2520consultants%2520got%2520enough%2520supplies%26FolderCTID%3D0x01200200A1C51FB6047510439F93B774F153C4CB%26TopicsView%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fxx%252Exxxxxxx%252Ecom%252Ftheworks%252FOandR%252FTDMBE%252FLists%252FDiscussion%252520Board%252FAllItems%252Easpx   Does this suggest that the URL length is the root of the issue. The users are using IE6 also. If i connect directly onto one of the front end web servers and try to do a reply then it works as expected and response URL is much shorter i.e.   http://servername/theworks/OandR/TDMBE/Lists/Discussion%20Boar

SPEmailEventReceiver event not adding email to discussion board

If I catch an "EmailReceived" event, even if the only code I execute is as follows:

Public Overrides Sub EmailReceived(ByVal list As
 Microsoft.SharePoint.SPList, ByVal emailMessage As Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPEmailMessage, ByVal receiverData As String)

    MyBase.EmailReceived(list, emailMessage, receiverData)
End Sub

The e-mail message never makes it to the discussion board itself.  If I unattach the event, everything works as expected.

Is there a way that I can ensure the message automatically makes it to the discussion board?  If not, how would I go about adding the e-mail to the board?

Thanks in advance,

Email Notification on Discussion Board


how is it possible to setup a Discussion Board in which the person that initially started the discussion is notified automatically when someone responds to his/her discussion?

The first issue here is, that I don't see an option to have an automatic Email notification setup for a user. I think SharePoint only provides a method to let users setup their Notifications. I need something, so that for the user which started the discussion the Email notification is setup automatically.

The second problem I have with Email notifications is, that if a user creates a notification rule that says notify me, as soon as someone else changes an item created by me, that by SharePoint responses are not recognized as "changes".

How can I solve these issues? Are there third-party tools that might provide a solution?

Modifying discussion board 'Alert me" Email Body

Hi i would like to modify the email body of alert me. I just don't like the link to modify the alerts in the body. in the alerts XML there is a variable for the entire body ( <![CDATA[$Resources:Lerts-weeklysummary;]]> ). how do i modify the content of body to remove "You can change this alert or any of your other alerts on the My Alerts on this Site page."

email body format is shown below

Alert 'English Primary Discussion - Weekly Alert' has successfully been added on 'English - Primary'.

You will receive alerts in e-mail. The timing and criteria for the alerts depend on the settings entered when the alert was added.

You can change this alert or any of your other alerts on the My Alerts on this Site page.

Cannot set the email from address (reply-to) in SharePoint Designer workflow

I have created several workflows for custom lists. Among other actions, they send out emails. It appears however, that they all use the same from-address. I would like to supply each of these workflows with different reply-to addresses.

Can I do that? After a lot of searching it appears that the only way is to create separate Web Applications, since the reply-to address is set on Web Application level. But that would require several extra web applications in my case, which again need their own site collections and sites.

I really, really miss a "From" field in the SharePoint Designer workflow "Send e-mail" action.

Best regards, Jan.

We don’t want Person A to have access to Person B's whole profile but just the discussion forum – although Person A could have access to the main landing page of Person B's profile, just not anything inside the various sections.
