How to hide Revert to Template Status on the SPD Customized Pages

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have customized the wiki pages through the SharePoint Designer 2010. One of the side effects of the customized pages is, yellow status bar "The current page has been customized from its template. Revert to Template" shows up on the customized pages in the browser. I am afraid that if end users clicks on the "Revert to Template", it would reset the page to the site definition. Is there anyway we can disable this yellow status gracefully for the SPD customized pages? On the side note, does anyone know, what does "Revert to Template" does? It seems like sometime "Revert to Template" keeps the customization and sometimes it removes the customizations. Has anyone noticed? Thanks in the advance

Can you hide the "Form Template Conflict" message?


We have 100s of Infopath 2003 forms published on our Sharepoint site (MOSS 2007).  These forms are updated constantly.  The problem we have is that anytime we change the form's design (ex. change wording on the form), the user will get the "Form Template Conflict" message when they click on the form.  This is very confusing to them, and although we've asked them to click on "Replace form", they still get confused.

This message is very confusing to anyone, not just a user.  We would like to suppress this message so that every single time we update a form, they don't have to see this.  I'm not sure why it even saves a copy locally on their machines, anyway.  The fact is that in 100% of all cases, they will need to replace the form on their computer.  Renaming the forms every time we edit them is not an option - there are too many and links would all be broken. 

Can anyone tell us how to "hide" or "suppress" this error for our users?  Or design a form on the back-end that won't show this?  Could possibly changing security settings prevent this?  Any suggestions would be appreciated on how to prevent this message from popping every time we update a form.

can template save custom pages?


I created a template off a site I made last year (without content). That site had some custom pages with webparts on them.  These pages were linked to from the Quick Launch menu.  I just made a new site using that template and it appears the custom pages weren't part of the template as when I click on the links to them in the QL menu, I get a 404 page not found error. I tried again saving the template with content this time and my custom pages show up - but then I have all the lists/libraries filled with old content.  Any remedy?

I am on MOSS 2007 and can use Designer.

Programmatically Hide Master Pages from Site Master Page Settings page?



I know there is a field you can check when you edit the properties of a Master Page in the Master Page Gallery to set a Master Page to hidden but ... can anyone think of a way to programmatically hide specific Master Pages from the Site Master Page Settings page?

Maybe this should be two questions:

  1. How do I programmatically access a Master Page in a Master Page Gallery?
  2. Is there a property that can be set that will hide the page from the Site Master Page Settings page?

Insert and Edit Pages with Web User Control Template for another table

Hi, I have an Address template(web user control) which holds the fields of the Address table.  The Address template is embedded in the School Insert Page.  I want to insert a new school together with its address(which means I have to insert a record into the address table).  Can you let me know how I can pass the newly generated addressId to update school table?  Also, how can I associate the Address.cs in the App_Code with the Address template?  I want it to be able to scaffold columns which needs to be hidden from user in the address table.  When I click on Insert School, the Address template shows in "insert" mode, I just need to link the two together.

Using jQuery .hide() and .show() on panel sets doesn't maintain status through postback. Viewstate

I'm using jQuery against a set of three asp panels.  I set up an 'onChange' function for a dropdown list that dictates which panels to hide and show based on the UI selection.When the page first loads, one of the panels will be shown, the others will be hidden.  Let's say pnlOne is showing because the dropdown has option 1 selected.  This is done on the server with this:pnlOne.Style.Add("display","block");//and all the other panels are set to ".Style.Add("display","none");" based on logic.Then, the user selects a different value in the dropdown.  Let's say they select option number 2.  With javascript and jQuery I do this:$("#<%=pnlOne.ClientID %>").hide();$("#<%=pnlTwo.ClientID %>").hide();$("#<%=pnlThree.ClientID %>").hide();switch($("#<%= ddlOptionNumber.ClientID %> option:selected").text()){case "1":$("#<%= pnlOne.ClientID %>").show();break;case "2": etc.,}The issue is when the page posts back.  I'm running client side validation only at this point.  (Even if I add client side in the future I will still run client side as well to avoid security issues.)  When the validation functions detect an issue and the page returns to be displayed, the original panel (pnlOne)

Digital Signing of Forms (not template) changes status of form

I have a nice InfoPath Travel Request form that requires sequential digital signing.  I have the sections holding the signatures display contingent upon the prior signed section having a value of being signed.  All is working well. Now, once I publish the form to a SharePoint Form Library, I'd like to have a column showing a status such as 'Supervisor Approved', then on to 'Manager Approved' to finally 'Fully Approved'. I thought that I could create a Rule that when a section's digital signature value changes to 'signed', it could update a 'Status' field's text value.  However, when in practice, if digital signature is applied, there is no method to update the 'Status' field.  Digital signatures apply to Sections and sections don't have Rules capabilities. Other than writing code, is there a method that I can use that would change a 'Status' field value based on a section being digitaly signed?Greg Appelt

how to hide .aspx extension for multiple pages


In MVC it's very easy to control routing.


In my classic ASP.NET application I want to "hide" .aspx extension


I can do it with new ASP.NET 4 feature: MapPageRoute

  1. routes.MapPageRoute("login""login""~/login.aspx");  
routes.MapPageRoute("login", "login", "~/login.aspx");


Now http://site.com/login will work. But I have more than 50 pages, and adding 50 rules is ridiculous.


How can I solve this?

Can't generate the Wiki site from a customized wiki template


I made a template with data from my Wiki site within an external sharepoint site.

Then, moved it to the internal sharepoint site, site templates. I was able to see the template in the custom tab during creation of the new wiki site.

copy the master page to the site template. directly selected that file. did not work

restored the default. did not work.

I get error 404 when I access the wiki site.

any idea how should i restore a wiki site?




Provision/Add custom Layout, Master and Default pages in Site Template


I'm attempting to use the onet.xml of a custom Site Template to provision/add (same thing?) a custom Master Page, a Custom Layout page and then reference them in Configurations.

How to hide approval status field?


Hi all

I have created a custom list in sharepoint 2007.

How can this field be hidden?

Status List WebPart or KPIListWebPart missing when create sites based in a site template that has it


Hi Everyone,

I have a site collection in SharePoint server 2010, and within this site collection I have a site. This site has KPIListWebPart or Status List WebPart. I have added this WebPart through SPD 2010, because through SharePoint you cannot add this particular WebPart.

The problem is the following:

The site (with the Status List WebPart) has to be a Site Template, in order to allow the users to create sites as needed. In the site, the Status List WebPart works perfectly, but when I create a new site based in the site template, the Status List WebPart is missing. 

Any idea why is it happening?


Thanks in advance and best regards,


Hide a repeater in ASP.NET C# if the DataSource contains no items?

I have an ASP.NET page that uses a repeater nested within another repeater to generate a listing of data. It's to the effect of the following:
In the (C#) code-behind I'm basically using LINQ to pull a listing of information from an XML document and bind that information to the first repeater.

Searching for the answer to this, it seems the method is to determine whether the data for the nested repeater is empty. If it is, then you set the visibility of the repeater to false.
