The Group Work Site template has the "What's New" web part on it's home page and I have the follow

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I can't find that web part as something I can use elsewhere? As in, I can't add that web part on other pages made even on the same site. What would be ideal is to have that web part available to add as needed to other sites/pages of course. As it stands, for me it seems the only place I can use that web part is on the home page of a new "Group Work Site", i hope that I'm wrong. I've tried exporting the web part, but the importing does nothing when trying to import it to other sites, of course other 2010 sites. Please let me know how I may add that web part to my available to use web parts please.

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

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.


Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor

Only fiew part of document library in site page



I'm trying to create a site page containing a part of a document library. I've added a data view web part to my page and then I can see all documents and folders of the library on the site page.

Problem is that I only want to see documents and subfolders that are in a specific folder of the library. I've tried to set the folder scope in designer to "Show only files of a specific folder", but I don't know where to specify the folder. Then I tried to do the same using a filter on the path, but this doesn't work with a "greather then" filter.

Has anyone tried to do the same and how?

Thanks  a lot!

What's the "right" way to create a site template and inherit a custom master page?


Correct me if I'm wrong, but in 2007 whatever masterpage you had selected was saved in the site template and was re-created when a new site was created from said template.

It occurs to me that it's different in 2010.

Custom master pages from a site template aren't inherited and they don't keep the specified value when you ask it to before creating the template itself.

So, what's the "correct" way?  What's the difference in making a site template using a blank site or publishing site?

Here I thought I'd be able to make a site template and move on to my next project.

Thanks in advance!

List Web Part Issues in Site Template

I have about 10 list web parts each list with a custom content type and custom columns and a default view set. I am displaying these web parts on the site's default page. Everything looks great. WHEN I save the site as a template and create a NEW site from the template, the list web parts do not automatically grab the default views from the libraries, instead they just pull in the default Title column and thats it. I have to manually modify each web part to grab the default view. Is there a way around this? I don't understand why it cannot grab the default view automatically.



Sharepoint 2007 publishing site home page displays unknown file type security message

Has anyone had the same issue ? I would appreciate  any suggestios or help with troubleshootig this issue.


Provision Shared Documents List View Web Part in Site Template


I'm trying to add the Shared Documents "web part" that is part of the default Team Site template to a custom site template.  However, from what I've found this is not really a web part for Shared Documents, but a generic List View web part with Shared as the data source.  Also, I don't see where this is listed in the onet.xml file of the Team Site template (which I believe is the "sts" template, correct?).  Also, you cannot export/download the xml for this webpart from the page and when it is viewed via SP Designer, the way it is defined is not supported in an onet.xml file. 

So how do you add this webpart to a site template?

404 Page Not Found Error When Trying to Create a Site From a Custom Site Template


I just moved a site collection from a one server to another, and now I can't make copies of my sites using custom site templates.

The details of my site structure are in the next paragraph, in case they are relevant.
On the original server, I created custom templates for my sites, and checked the Include Content checkbox
when creating the templates. Everything works perfectly on that server. When I moved the whole site collection to another
server using stsadm backup/restore everything was there, including my customized web parts. But now I can't create new sites
from templates - and I'm I'm not trying to use templates created on the original server. I'm creating new templates on the new
server. It successfully creates the templates, but when I try to create a new site from one of those templates, I get a
"HTTP 404 Page Not Found" page. It succeeds in creating the new site, and the new site shows up in my navigation bar,
but when I click on the new site, I get a "404 Page Not Found" page.

On the original server, I created one top level site for my whole department. Under that, I have one subsite for each of our
external clients. Under each of those, I have one subsite for each project for that client. I used a Team site as my starting
point at each of the 3 leve

MOSS 2007 Intranet Home page "My Links" suddenly missing. "My Site" is there.


Hi all,

If anyone has seen this issue, or is aware of it, your help is appreciated it.

Our intranet homepage is suddenly missing the "My Links" link on the top right corner.  The welcome message and "My Site" shows up.  When I click on "My Site" and it takes me to my profile, I can see the "My Links" on that page. 

However, it is no longer showing on the homepage.  This is the case for all users.

How can I re-enable it or make it show on the homepage again?  Anyone know what would have caused it to suddenly disappear?  We have not been making any changes to the home page or the intranet.
