Issue with Picture Library Slideshow Web Part after export/import of site collection (SP2010)

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I recently exported/imported an SP2010 site collection from Dev to Prod. The site collection had about 90 sites, which were all driven from a site template. Once the export/import had taken place, I created an additional 15 sites (in Prod), using the original site template that was created in the Dev environment. Everything seemed to be working just fine, but I found an issue with the Picture Library Slideshow Web Parts (PLSWP) on all the sites that were created in Prod. Basically, I have a Picture Library, and any pictures added to this library show up in the PLSWP. The original 80 site's PLSWP works fine, but the new 15 sites will not show the pictures through the PLSWP (the viewer just shows up blank). Here is the difference in the html output of the picture viewer:

 PLSWP from Dev:

Issue With MOSS 2007 Picture library



We have a MOSS 2007 publishing portal. We are currently facing issues with Picture library created with default picture library template.Whenever we have tried to upload an image to the picture library I am getting "acess denied" error message, though I have full permission to the site level as well as to the library level.I have seen the pictures are getting uploaded and in "checked out" state.It does not show the "edit properties" page on upload and does not even allow the owner of the image to edit the properties, gives the same access denied error message.

I have also tried to check in the image files through the "management and content structure", but the images are not getting checked in. Please let me know the root cause of this and how we can resolve this.

Speed Up Picture Library Slideshow transition?

I have a customer that's using the Picture Library Slideshow web part, but they want to speed up the transition time. I have to agree with them that the default fade in/fade out times are almost painful. Shouldn't both the transition type and time properties be exposed so an end user can adjust them? The only workaround I've seen for this is to use the Sliverlight Slideshow + container that's on Codeplex. Garth H MCITP BI 2008 MCTS: SQL 2005 & SharePoint 2010 http://bitinkering.spaces.live.com/

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!

Web Part pages in the Pages library don't inherit the Site Icon?


I just noticed that for Web Part Pages created through the UI and placed into the Pages library don't seem to inherit the Site Icon. I tested this in two environments.

I want to keep using the Pages library as I've linked the page to the top link bar, and it highlights it properly if it's in the pages library. However I can't seem to be able to fix the Site Icon on that page. 

Is this a known bug or have I done something wrong?
