Users (even site collection administrator) unable to see minor versions in document libraries

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have document libraries with the following settings: major & minor versioning enabled, checkout required & 'only users who can edit items' can see draft (minor) items. The problem is when a user uploads a document (the first document), the library appears empty. However, looking at the summary in 'view all site content' we see that the number of items in the list has incremented by 1. Typically, if the user selects explorer view they can also see the document they just uploaded.

Similar behaviour occurs using the 'New document' option. Before checking in the document for this first time it is visible in the library. If it is checked in as v 0.1 it 'disappears' if it is checked in as v 1.0 it is visible.

I have noticed that if I toggle the Draft Item Security setting by setting it to 'any user who can read items' then set it back immediately to 'only users who can edit items' that the previously hidden items become visible. And any new minor versions created subsequently are also displayed correctly. I can of course do this for existing libraries, but if new libraries are created based on my template this behaviour reoccurs.

Has anyone seen this before?

Event handler to delete minor versions in document libraries

Hi Is there a way we can capture the deletion of minor versions in document libraries using any event handler. May not be using the delete all the minor versions but at least when we use the option to delete the selected minor version. I do not see the ItemUpdating and ItemUpdated getting fired in this case. Thanks wpwije

All Users (Including Site Collection Admins) receiving Access Denied from one Site Collection

I usually spend my time in the forums answering questions.  But this time I need the help. I’ve got a client who somehow has succeeded in locking EVERYONE out of one of their Site Collections.  Users can authenticate to the site, but get an accessdenied page when you try to access anything in the site collection, including pages served from the _Layouts virtual directory.  The AccessDenied page shows that they are authenticated, but not authorized.  This is true for Site Collection admins and user’s who have been given Grant Full Control via a Web Application Permission Policy.  Central Admin and one other site collection are behaving normally.  I've already checked for database permissions - the service account can access the database fine. I've also checked for a locked database or overextended quota.  It's not that either. The accessdenied page url references the users list in the root of the site collection as the offending list denying access.   Does anyone have any ideas?Paul Stork SharePoint Server MVP

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?

SP2010 - move libraries from a site in one site collection to a site on a different site collection

can this be done simply through 1) opening sitecollectionA.siteA in windows explorer 2) opening sitecollectionB.siteA in windows explorer 3) copying library in 1) to location in 2) Is this best practice or is there an OOTB option to achieve this ? could SharePoint WorkSpace be used ? thanks and regards, Counie

Take site offline for all users except administrator

Is it possible to take site offline for all users, but give admins ability to use and edit it? Maybe something like app_offline.htm, but not for all users. Thanks a lot.

Using a List View web part to display documents from multiple document libraries from different site

Hi there, I am trying to have one web part display documents (or list items) from different document libraries (or different lists) from different site collections. I have achieved this under a single site collection using Data View Web Part (using SPD). I have also achieved displaying a single document library (or a list) from a different site collection by using List View Web Part. but I am not sure how to get my head around displaying documents or list items from different document libraries or lists across site collections. I have thought of using SPSiteDataQuery or ListViewByQuery, but they all seem to focus one site collection at a time. If any of you have done this before, please share your best practice on this one with me. Much appreciated. Clark

Help needed! Access denied for the root site for all users except Site Collection Administrators?!


We had implemented an intranet for a customer. Last week on friday we completed the project and they were allowed access to it. Next monday they had done some changes while trying to learn SharePoint (among others the Site Members groups had been deleted) and since then they have been unable to access the root site (e.g. http://intradev/default.aspx) and get a SharePoint Access Denied message. While the root site fails, users can browse to the subsites (e.g. http://intradev/subsite/default.aspx) and view them just fine.

We've noticed that users that are in the Site Collection Administrators group can view the root site just fine. Due to this, we made an educated guess that users had no permissions on the root web. But explicitly adding permissions to the root web does not work. The logon still fails. While it doesn't work in the root web, the permissions are inherited to all subsites, and users can log on and browse those pages just fine.

I've checked pretty much everything. I've tried giving permissions to users in the root site. I've ensured in Central Admin that 'Full Control' does actually give full control of everything. Only thing I've not yet tried is restoring the content database to an earlier backup, where the site was working nicely. 

I'm totally confused by this problem. If you've got any ideas or have encountered a similar

Site Collection Administrator and Recycle Bin

Site Collection Admin Unable to create subsite


Hi All,

We are running into a wierd kind of problem, we had a site called A, A had to be split for two different user base so A was exported into B. Now we have two sites A & B with its own user groups.

Site collection admins of B are not able to create subsites in B. But site collection Admins of both A & B are able to create subsites in either sites.

if site collection admin of  B is given read/write control on Site A then he is able to create sites in B (totally wierd)

Can anybody help me identifying what is happening here and points to start our troubleshooting.  

Thanks in Advance,



Not able to add all users from other trusted Domain to site collection


The environment consists of a one-way trust relationship, I have no problems adding users from the local domain, however I can only add a few select users from the domain that the trust is setup for. This appears to be the case for only one site collection, as a previous site collection can authenticate to and add users from this other trusted domain. 

I have checked the following article in order to authenticate objects in the other trusted domain, but it appears to have not helped.


What steps should I verify so that I can add users to given stie collections?
