How can I edit page properties in SP Designer 2010?


Is there any way to edit the page properties (metadata) in SP Designer?

'Edit content' link is not working on article page



I am using MOSS 2007. I am using custom master page, custom theme, and custom page layout for my portal site. I have created one article page, but 'Edit content' link is showing some javascript error. If I set out-of-box default.master as master page, then its working fine. But its showing me JS error with my custom master page. What could be the reason?

Its very urgent. Please response.

Detecting Edit or Insert Page


I am coding a .cs file that handles the metadata for a particular table. I am putting a custom validation that allows me to update or insert only if the PubMedID is not already in the database. This would be easy except that the PMID should also be allowed to be null as some of the references in the database were not from PubMed. So i perform a query on the database to see if there is already an identical PMID in the database. This works great when using Insert. However, when using Edit, it does not. The PMID is already in the database because the one currently being edited has the same PMID!!! So I know exactly how to change my query etc. However, I do not know how to tell from inside this Edit/Insert agnostic page, which one it is being called from. Thanks for your help! 

Link goes to next page but url doesn't change?


I have a text input to get a 'roomID' and an ASP button that calls an 'enterRoom' function:

roomID:<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="roomID"></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Enter Room!" OnClick="enterRoom" />

In my head tags I have my enterRoom Sub:
    <script runat="server">
        Sub enterRoom(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
            Server.Transfer("users/room.aspx?roomID=" & Request.Form("roomID"))
        End Sub

Now when I click that button it essentially goes to the right page in all ways but the URL stays as my default.aspx instead of changing to users/room.aspx?roomID=23423. I've tried it in IE and Firefox with the same results. Is this something I'm not understanding about Server.Transfer or why is this happening and how do I fix it?

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.


Unable to Edit the properties of a document using the ribbon


I have created a new web part page and added a document library to that page.  In the ribbon the "Edit Properties" icon is enabled and I can edit the document properties.

When I add another web part to the page and go back to select a document, on the ribbon the "Edit Properties" icon is no disabled.  I can still edit the document using the context menu of the document.

Permissions on the library did not change when I added the additional web part.  The only change to the page was adding an additional web part.

User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont

Trying to get to a page via an email link. Could the sitemap be stopping this?


I had this working.  I would email a link to a page (i.e. Work.aspx), and using the code below, the user would be routed to the login page and then sent  to Work.aspx after logging in.

But since I added a site map this isn't working.  I always go directly to my home page.  If I set Work.aspx as my start page in VS it works, but not if I click a link in the email.

Any thoughts?

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


        if (!Page.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)

            Response.Redirect("~/Login.aspx" + "?ReturnUrl=~/Work.aspx");


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!Page.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)

how to create a wiki as page link

How do I get the Name link to go to document properties instead of the doc itself?

Hello.  I need to link my documents/photos/etc to their properties page (DispForm.aspx), not directly to the item itself.  How do I change my code to do this?  I have SharePoint Designer, but I'm no big expert.  I have looked through all the different column names and types and cannot find one that does this.  Thanks.  Oh, I'm on WSS 3.0.

you do not have permission to do this operation. Whenever I try to edit a page in sharepoint designe


Hi There,

I keep getting the error message "you do not have permission to do this operation" in  sharepoint designer 2007 (WSS 3.0), whenever I try to edit a page in Sharepoint Designer.

I am a farm admin, site collection admin and site admin, after the error message I can click OK and enter the Administrator password which has the same priviliges as me and it thinks about it for 5 minutes then returns the same error, eventually after several hours it will allow me to save changes but it's about a 1 in 20 chance.

As it does save sometimes it would appear to me that somehow it is losing the connection or temporarily losing the credentials. Does anybody have a clue where I can start to find out a solution to this problem. I get the feeling that something is corrupted somewhere but I don't what to look for and where.

Any help, tips, ideas gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.


Request.PathInfo losing Master Page content and CSS link


Hi All-


I'm using Request.PathInfo to response.redirect as user to a different page ( based on the content after .aspx ).  It redirect just fine however, once redirected, the page loses all content from the master page and the CSS link.  I've searched and can't find an answer. 

Does anyone have a solution for this?

"Only their own" allows users to edit, then shows access denied page

I am managing a WSS 3.0 portal.  I have created custom lists where a group has contribute permissions.  Under List Settings|Advanced Settings, when I set Edit Access to "Only their own" or "None", my test users can see the Edit Icon and the Edit Item menu option, and bring up the Edit Form.  When they click "OK", they get the Access Denied page.  My experience in that past is that they should not even been shown the option to edit, and they should get Access Denied if they somehow navigate to the EditForm.aspx page.  I even tested this on a brand new site, with three Links lists, each with different Edit Access Levels (All, None, Only their own).  I added one user with contribute permissions.  He had the same result: He could get all the way to EditForm.aspx, but got "Access Denied" when he submitted his changes.  What can I do to fix this?Christopher W.

Form input to output as a link on the display page (need help please)

 I have a form, the form works great and displays the information perfectly on a designated display page I have set up from its database.  One problem, I want to display it as a link to the site instead of how it is now, just plain text. Thus the user would put in the text box the site and hit submit and the site would appear of the display page.  Can anyone please assist me on this, and where to drop the hyperlink control? in the form page? or in the display page?    Below is my form code page:     <p><strong><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">International Access Entry      Form</font></strong></p><p><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Please enter information      international contact information below.

cannot edit documents in newly created libraries

I've been struggling with this for about a month now, so it's really makin' me crazy at this point! Here's what seems to be happening: My document libraries that were in in place pre-grade are fine, but in all the new document libraries that have been created post-2010 upgrade, the only way anyone can edit these documents is to go in thru Explorer view.. My Library settings are set to 'open in client application' since we're only using Foundation, but I have tried 'open in browser' with no luck. Edit document & Check out are both disabled on the ribbon. I've tried different permission levels - system account, document owner, you name it. I'm hoping someone here might have a fresh idea or two. Thanks in advance! T
