Hiding Quicklaunch, Master Pages, and Site Administration pages...

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

In most of our SharePoint 2010 solutions we've hidden the QuickLaunch through these CSS modifications attached directly to the v4.master:

#s4-leftpanel {  display:none; }
.s4-ca {  margin-left: 0px;  background: transparent; }

That produces a very good result on content pages not meant for use with QuickLaunch. However, it ruins the Site Administration and Site Collection Administration pages in many places, as you remove useful links, e.g. group memberships. We've fiddled with the idea of creating a separate master for each content page, but we don't know of any automatic way of applying that custom master page to a new page. We know how to do it manually, but we can't expect the customer to edit each page after it's been created and apply the custom.master.

How have you guys dealt with this problem?

Master Pages: Master Your Site Design with Visual Inheritance and Page Templates

  

Master pages in ASP.NET 2.0 solve a problem many Web developers have been solving on their own with a variety of techniques for years - providing a single master template for an entire site. This article covers the details of master pages, discussing their usage and implementation and how they are a natural evolution of custom techniques developers are using today.

Why do the aks master pages not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collecti

  
Hi

I installed AKS 2.0 and activated AKS feature. The problem I found was the aks master pages do not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collection. why is so?

example: If i activate the feature on http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> and apply the master page, I dont see any changes.

              But if i activate the same aks feature on http://<servername/ then everything started working on all sites.

              The reason i found is the CSS reference in the aks master pages.

              It reference should be given as follows:

                 for http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> ->  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

                 for http://<servername>/ -><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

So my question is, am i missing anything? am i supposed to activate the AKS feature on top level site collection at any cost? if yes, why is so? 

And after applying aks master pages, i see differnece in font sizes. Why the font size is getting changed?

Sharepoint 2007 - Wiki site - New Pages Not Inheriting Custom Master Page

  

I am working on a SP site (MOSS not WSS) which is heavily customised away from the OOTB layout. I need to create a Wiki site, which was going well - I've created a master page which displays the miniconsole (this was not visible with our customised layout), and made it the default master page for the site. This has been applied to the two standard pages that come with the Wiki site, however when a new page is created, it seems to inherit the default.master, rather than my custom master page - thus not showing the miniconsole.

When I have created a new page, I am able to use SharePoint Designer to attach my custom master page to it, which works perfectly, however this will not be a viable option going forward as end-users create their new wiki pages.

How can I get the new pages to inherit my master page when they are created?

Programmatically Hide Master Pages from Site Master Page Settings page?

  

Hi,

I know there is a field you can check when you edit the properties of a Master Page in the Master Page Gallery to set a Master Page to hidden but ... can anyone think of a way to programmatically hide specific Master Pages from the Site Master Page Settings page?

Maybe this should be two questions:

  1. How do I programmatically access a Master Page in a Master Page Gallery?
  2. Is there a property that can be set that will hide the page from the Site Master Page Settings page?

WSS 3.0 - Master Pages - Changes not effective across site

  
Hi, I am relatively new to sharepoint and I have inherited a new intranet which I want to develop further. The first thing I notice is that some of the sites (i.e. the IT page) uses one master page (last updated in August) and the other pages use a master default which is different (last updated in December 2009). I want to be able to copy the August version and make it effective across all sites. I am not sure how to achieve this. I have tried making changes to the December 2009 file to see the changes take effect (i.e. change a background from red to blue) and it did not take effect across the site. This is probably basic stuff and I have purchased the Microsoft books to help, but I am at a bit of a loss on this one. Can anyone give me some simple directions on how I can make all the sites within our intranet refer to the same master default page? Thanks in advance

Retract custom master page feature and all site pages stop working

  
There is a requirement to apply custom branding on personal sites in a SP 2010 project. For this I have created a feature which uploads and applies the custom master page on creation of any new personal sites.   I have stapled this feature (using feature stapling concept) to the “SPSPERS” (personal site) site definition. The custom master page is displayed on the creation of new personal sites. On feature deactivation, I am looping through all the personal sites (as the feature is deployed on a team site) and pointing the master URL back to v4.master. But when I retract the solution and browse to the personal site, I am getting a “404 File not found” error.  But am able to view the settings page by typing the URL.   I activated the publishing features and looked at the master page applied to the personal site. It was pointing to v4.master.   Any help on this is appreciated. Regards, Neha

Provision/Add custom Layout, Master and Default pages in Site Template

  

I'm attempting to use the onet.xml of a custom Site Template to provision/add (same thing?) a custom Master Page, a Custom Layout page and then reference them in Configurations.

I'm having trouble understanding the steps and order to do this in properly and am getting errors where the Layouts/Master pages cannot be found.  Here is what I have now:

publishing site & master pages

  

hello,

I have a publishing site for which I am creating a master page. I created a couple of test pages so I could see what my master page looks like.  I created a page layout and some new pages to use for a test. I can view my pages with the master applied in SP Designer 2007, but when I look at it on the web, it's not picking it up.  I approved the master page  and the page layout, but I didn't publish them. ( I get the warning that the local and remote sites are the same- not sure what this means).

I am assuming I don't have to publish the master page to see it on the website. Is this true?

Also, when I look at the pages(aspx) in the MasterPage Gallery folder in SP Designer, I can see that the master pages custom & default options are selected. Also, the page layout's "set as default master page" ( it's an aspx file) is also selected.  Does this sound right?  

Does anybody know what I am missing? 

 

thanks much.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

  
In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

  
As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

how to check which pages of my site that my visitor visiting at the moment

  

 Hi all, and thanks a lot for the replies since now. I have a new question :

I prepared a simple instant messaging system for my web site and i would like to learn which visitor (registered member) is at which page of my site. 

For example : 

Uid:10000, Username:donald, NameSurname:Donald DUCK is a registered and signed in visitor.

I need the code which tells me that visitor is at which page (ie. images.aspx?imageid=143223)

Sorry for my poor english, and let me know if i should explain more clearly :)

Ajax and master pages

  

I have a site that uses master pages.  Some of my pages use ajax, so they have the scriptmanager on them.  I now have to add some ajax to one of the master pages.  When I try to display a page that already has a script manager on it, I get an error that I can only have one script manager.  Is there a way to deal with this other then searching for every page that uses the master page and ajax and removing the scriptmanager tag? 

I'm hoping to start using Ajax more and more, so I'm really more concerned with best practices then I am about having to find and remove tags.  What is the right way to use Ajax on master pages and some, but not all content pages?
