Unable to create columns in document library after applying custom master page to site

Hi, I have applied a custom master page to a site.There is a document library in it. I am unable to add columns in it or change the default view.Nothing happens when I click on OK butoon after making my changes. However the columns are created/default view is changed when I apply the default master page. Guess I am missing some TagPrefix or sharepoint control on master page.I had solved this problem earlier in this way but don't remeber it now. Can anyone help?

Duplicate Fields during list creation from content types and site columns


I am trying to create a List in Sharepoint 2010 using Site Columns and Content Types. It results in creating duplicate fields in the list for the Site Columns used. Here is the details description of what I was doing.

I have created two site columns 


<Field Type="Number" DisplayName="Start Coordinate" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Indexed="FALSE"
Group="QMS" ID="{A3F2D108-11B5-4B49-9633-338D27227E12}"
Name="StartCoordinate" Overwrite="TRUE" />

<Field Type="Number" DisplayName="End Coordinate" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Indexed="FALSE"
Group="QMS" ID="{06B927BB-C354-4A0A-AE88-9C14E55EAB27}"
Name="EndCoordinate" Overwrite="TRUE" />

Upgrade to 2010 with corrupt site columns


Hope someone can help, have exhausted all googled solutions.

Recently upgraded from Moss 2007- ent to 2010 ent using database attach method, the only outstanding problem is with a custom site column type from codeplex -filtered lookup.

  1. When trying to access the site columns/ mngfields.aspx from the ui/sharepoint designer or  SharePoint manager I get the error- Field type FilteredLookup is not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete this field  -  or some variation
  2. When I try to view the site columns based on the 'filtered lookup type' using power-shell I cannot access them, zero return, yet can view all the other site columns (using names from the 2007 box)

So if the columns are not there where is the reference that is causing the problem and how to fix?.

Have been thru every site and list and deleted the offending columns, but surely this does not have any effect on the site columns mngmt page?

I don't want to remove the type from the 2007 server as this is our working model


MMS & Tags & Site Columns oh my hee hee ha ha ho ho


Feel like I'm missing something big and obvious.

Is it possible (and, advisable) to create a Site Column that is linked to Managed Metadata and then to have that automatically always be a column on all content?

I've been through creating it, and adding it to e.g. a list via Add from Existing Site Column, but that would require that everyone who uses a list remember and then take the time to actually add it.

Can't one make it an automagic field, like Created, Modified By, etc?


Updating the site columns failed

When I try to publish an InfoPath form to a site content type I get this message "Updating the site columns failed".
I have not managed to find out why it does that. Any one that has had success with it, or got any smart tips? :)

Customizing the StartDate/EndDate DateTime Site Columns


I was wondering if it is possible to customize the StartDate/EndDate DateTime columns in SharePoint to behave similarly to ASP.Net Calendar controls.  That is to say, I would like the ability to filter out dates which should not be eligible for selection.  For example, for certain lists, I would like to only allow the user the ability to select dates which are neither weekends, nor holidays. 

Currently, the DateTime column only allows a limited set of criteria for setting date values which is not sufficient for my needs.

Please let me know how to accomplish this (preferably in SharePoint 2007, but a SharePoint 2010 solution is also welcome).

SharePoint lookup site columns and Word Content Controls

I discovered that when you bind lookup columns in SharePoint to a Content Type that in turn pushed these properties to the document, the value actually stored is the ID and not the text that is displayed. What is the correct way to use such site columns to enable users to select the data they want to be associated with a document and then to have the display values be populated in the Content Controls?

Is there a maximum limit to site columns?

I am trying to re-publish an infopath form that currently has 8 site columns specified.  I am trying to add one more column, but each time I attempt ot add a column I get the message, "The selected group does not have any remaining site columns for use".  I can't find any reference to this error message.

What is the limit I am reaching?

We are using MOSS2007 and InfoPath 2007.

It is shown for only new site columns.

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

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.
