Sharepoint Designer 2010 Can't edit Subsite



When trying to edit a subsite, I get a dialog box titled: 'Web Site Editing is Disabled':

The message content is: 'This web site has been configured to disallow editing with SharePoint Designer.  Contact your web site admin for more info.'

The subsite has inherited permission from the parent. 

the parent site settings/SharePoint Designer options are all turned on.

The subsite site settings only have a link referring back to the parent site settings.

I am an owner and collection admin with Full Control.

Any Help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in Advance!

SharePoint / Project Server 2010 Unable to edit a HTTPS site in SharePoint designer 32 bit



I posted this thread below under a different forum and was requested to move.  Below is our current problem and the feedback that was given.

We currently have a project server 2010 site with several workspaces associated with it.  When trying to edit the site (either from choosing edit is designer from the site actions or from trying to open from within the designer) a dialog appears asking to choose a certificate for the site.domain.com.

The certificate issued by the site is a GeoTrust certificate and checks ok when browsing the site in IE.  This Windows security dialog also appears when trying to export to excel on the same site.

Any thoughts to what we are missing?

edit form page loading is slow with more fields in foundation 2010


Hi friends,

I have recently noticed that ,my list edit form page load time is more compare to old version .

I have migrated my sharepoint site from wss3.0 to foundation 2010. I have a large list with 15,000 items and 43 fields.

My new item form is loading very quickly but edit form taking more than a minute. I tried with helath reports and firebug and yslow tools.

I didn't success with any reason. I request you to send me why it happening to the edit form page only

Out of 42 field 12 fields are lookup and I have field edit permissions enabled for different users.

Let me know what can I do to improve page load time for my list edit form.





Mobile page refuse some workflows to go ahead that published by Sarepoint designer 2010


The workflow refuse  to go ahead after operation when browsing the mobile page (...?mobile=1), but same workflow  by SPD (Collect data from user) is nunning well on the non mobile page (ASPX).

In mobile page, no "complete task" button. Only a "save" button.

Using it's "save" button, some modified can be saved in the page, but it's workflow not go ahead.

I tested "assign for approval" workflow by SPD on mobile page, same.

if you try "assign for feedbak" by SPD on mobilepage, it's oK. The workflow can go to it's end. Funny.

My wish:  The "Collect data from user" designed by SPD can go ahead when using the mobile page (...?mobile=1). My boss like to do it by mobile phone.

My environment:

Why does VS 2010's designer clear my property value editor's properties when it is dismissed?

(This started as a Connect post but I decided it seems like I should find out if I'm doing something daft before blaming .NET.  It requires a lot of code, and Connect lets you attach projects.  I see no option to do this on these forums, so I will link to a .zip file containing the project on my hosting.)

I'm experimenting with various ideas for the design-time experience for some WPF controls.  One feature I'm trying to implement is the display of a graphical preview for enumeration values.  My first attempt at this failed due to some behaviors in the design environment that I'm not certain are expected.  Here's a description of the attached project and the behaviors I don't understand.

PreviewItem is a class that represents an enumeration value; it has properties for the value and the image that represents it.PreviewItemCollection is a collection class that contains a PreviewItem for each valid enumeration value; it relies on an implementation of PreviewItemFactory.  PreviewItemFactory is responsible for generating a collection based on an enumeration that contains one PreviewItem per enumeration value. EnumPreview is a UserControl that maintains a PreviewItemCollection and displays each PreviewItem in a ComboBox.  It contains logic for representing the selected value as the enumeration value (not a PreviewItem).  To facilitate this, when the Selec

Set as default master page in Sharepoint Designer 2010 does not change pages at all


I make a copy of V4.masterpage ,rename it as myv4.masterpage, and modify it .

then right-click myv4.masterpage and choose 'set as default masterpage'.

but when i open my site, the pages don't change, and create a new page,it still the old look.


Shouldn't it do that?

Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.



Detecting Edit or Insert Page


I am coding a .cs file that handles the metadata for a particular table. I am putting a custom validation that allows me to update or insert only if the PubMedID is not already in the database. This would be easy except that the PMID should also be allowed to be null as some of the references in the database were not from PubMed. So i perform a query on the database to see if there is already an identical PMID in the database. This works great when using Insert. However, when using Edit, it does not. The PMID is already in the database because the one currently being edited has the same PMID!!! So I know exactly how to change my query etc. However, I do not know how to tell from inside this Edit/Insert agnostic page, which one it is being called from. Thanks for your help! 

Unable to Edit the properties of a document using the ribbon


I have created a new web part page and added a document library to that page.  In the ribbon the "Edit Properties" icon is enabled and I can edit the document properties.

When I add another web part to the page and go back to select a document, on the ribbon the "Edit Properties" icon is no disabled.  I can still edit the document using the context menu of the document.

Permissions on the library did not change when I added the additional web part.  The only change to the page was adding an additional web part.

User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont

Visual Studio 2010 Shows Blank Page during web development


I just upgraded a web project from VS2008 to VS2010 Ultimate (Windows7 64bit, IE8/Google Chrome. When I run the web project in the development server (by hitting F5) everything acts like it is supposed to except everything comes up blank. Even the directory structure page is blank, just an empty HTML open and close shell. I get no errors no indications of failure, nothing. When I try to use google chrome I get the same blank page no matter where I navigate to, even if I try to navigate to a non-existant location on the dev server. I know the code compiles and acts correctly because I can deploy it to our QA servers without issue. Any ideas? 

How to use display Text in Hyperlink For SharePoint 2010 Designer Workflow


In SharePoint 2007 Designer, I have used the Hyperlink column to store the link "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details". The details text will be shown in the Hyperlink column. Everything works fine in sharepoint 2007 Designer workflow.

In SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow, I used the same method but the hyperlink column is displaying the full text "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details" instead of only Details
