My profile -- Tags and Notes tab

Hi, In my profile of the SP site, there is a tab called "Tags and Notes", and the aspx is coming from _layouts/thoughts.aspx Since I want to customize it, I copied over to my profile site. And it looks perfectly fine when I am viewing it via SPD, But  when I preview it in browser, I got an error Correlation ID: a8eea084-4910-40c1-85e0-4f29863fa648 Is that a permission issue or some other files are needed to be copied over to my profile site? Please advice, your help would be greatly appreciated.

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!

"Enable this Form to be filled out by using a browser" check box is grayed out when publishing InfoP

When I try to publish InfoPath form to a SharePoint site collection, "Enable this Form to be filled out by using a browser" check box is grayed. Also, I see the following warning message: This form template is br owser-compatible, but it cannot be browser-enabled on the selected site. This may be cased by one of the following reasons: -The server is not running InfoPath Forms Services. - The necessary features are not available on the site collection. The policy setting on the server does not allow user to browser -enabled Form templates. I have tried the following: 1. Deactivated and reactivated " office SharePoint Server Enterprise Site collection features" 2. Deactivated and reactivated " office SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features" 3. "Form Templates" document library exists and visible. 4. I am able to check the box in other site collections without any problems. 5.

Scripting tags not firing

This should be so simple but the answer is escaping me.  We have a simple ASP.NET 3.5 webform written in VB.  The form does not contain any databound controls.  The markup posted below is a simplified version of the page.  We're trying to get the script code in the Text property of the label to fire.  I seem to recall there is something that needs to be put in the Page_Load to force the scripting to run under these circumstances but I can't recall what it is.  Can someone help please?<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="Test2.aspx.vb" Inherits="EUCNET00123.Test2" %> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" > <head runat="server"> <title></title> </head> <body> <form id="form1" runat="server"> <div> <asp:Label ID="Label33" runat="server" Text='<%= IIf(String.IsNullOrEmpty("X"), "Null or Empty", "Not Empty") %>'> </asp:Label> </div> </form> </body> </html&g

Getting tags and their counts for a given URL Base?

I'm fighting with the SocialTagManager since a few hours to get something incredibly simple done: For a given URL Base, give me all tags (from the Tags and Notes) and how often they are used, if the tags start with a certain string. So I have a Page http://myportal/SomePage.aspx that is called with an ID, like  http://myportal/SomePage.aspx?ID=1 http://myportal/SomePage.aspx?ID=2 etc. Each ID-Page can be tagged by users.   In SQL, this is trivial:   SELECT TOP 10 InputTermLabel, COUNT(InputTermLabel) AS Count FROM dbo.SocialTags WHERE InputTermLabel LIKE 'su%' AND UrlID IN ( SELECT UrlID FROM dbo.Urls WHERE Url like 'http://myportal/SomePage.aspx%') GROUP BY InputTermLabel ORDER BY Count DESC   I can't find a proper way to do this through the Object Model. My current approach is this:   public IDictionary<string, int> GetTags(string query) { var result = new Dictionary<string, int>(); using (var site = new SPSite(_siteId, SPUserToken.SystemAccount)) { var baseUrl = Config.GetSocialUrlBase(site.RootWeb); var stm = new SocialTagManager(SPServiceContext.GetContext(site)); var terms = stm.GetAllTerms(new Uri(baseUrl),0); foreach (var term in terms) { if (!term.Term.Name.StartsWith(query, StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase)) continue; var tc = stm.GetUrls(term.Term); int usageCoun

How can I display the notes for a file in a document library?

I have a document library with several office documents in it.  Currently, users select a document and the click the "Tags and Notes" button on the ribbon, then click the "Note Board" tab on the resulting pop-up in order to read or post notes.   What I have been asked for, is a connected web part that would display the notes associated with the currently selected document. The "Note Board" web part does not appear to accept connections.  Am I missing something?  Any ideas? TIA
