Migrating 2007 Wiki to 2010, many pages are now uneditable. help?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
We've recently applied to upgrade to 2010 on our SharePoint site.  We've noticed though, that most of the pages in our wiki library no longer allow web-editing in the browser.  I assume this is because some of the code in these pages was 'custom'.  In SharePoint Designer, the pages that do not allow editing have this message under Customization Status:

This file has custom page markup.

The pages that are editable have this message:

This file is based on a file from the site's definition.

Is there any easy way to convert the old pages into proper site definition, editable pages?  I've tried selecting the message at the top of each problem page that reads: The current page has been customized from its template. Revert to template.

but this only ends up with an error message when trying to revert:


Cannot revert to the site definition version of this file. It is a c

Wiki pages uneditable after in-place upgrade to SP 2010



 I have recently upgraded (In-place) SharePoint 2007 farm to SharePoint 2020 farm. Everything went well except the Wikipages libraray.  

The Wiki library page are upgraded & render properly in SP 2010 but they are not editable. The Edit|History|Incomming links tool bar doesnt  appear on upgraded WIKI pages and hence no one can edit them.

 I would highly appreciate if some one can help me resolve this issue.


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?


Show wiki page library columns on wiki pages- SharePoint 2010

I created a wiki page library in SharePoint 2010 and added a few columns to the library. However, these columns do not show on the actual wiki pages as they did in SharePoint 2007. I looked through the library settings but didn't find anything to turn on this feature. Does anyone know how to do this or if this feature was even included in SharePoint 2010? Thanks.

How to change the order of Webparts in Sharepoint 2010 wiki pages

In WSS you change the order of webparts just by moving them above or below another webpart. This does not work any longer in SP 2010. I want to move a list webpart above another list webpart. How can I do it [SP2010 Foundation].

SharePoint Wiki pages non editable after in place upgrade to SharePoint 2010



We recently upgraded SharePoint 2007 SP2 farm to SharePoint 2010 farm uisng in-place upgrade. The upgrade was successful execept the Wiki pages library pages showing unusal behavior. 

All the content in Wiki pages library under the SP 2007 site were upgraded to Wiki pages library under the same site after upgrade to SP 2010. But the WIKI tool bar is not showing the Edit button on Wiki pages and hence the Wiki content is non editable. 

We did not receive any error or informtaional message in the pre-upgradecheck on prior to upgrade.

I would highly appreciate if some could help get the issue resolved.



Upgrade/Migrate MOSS 2007 Wiki to SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Wiki


We've been running MOSS 2007 for a few years now and have built up a Wiki.


I am now investigating the migration to SharePoint 2010, I've used the database attach method to copy across our Intranet site collection to a development SharePoint 2010 install (this includes our Wiki).


This works except for an error under the "Recent Changes" heading and the new 2010 Enterprise Wiki features are not available.


What I'm trying to find out is if there is a way to either upgrade the Wiki sub-site or migrate the Wiki data into a new 2010 Wiki sub-site that I can swap for the live one.


I've tried to just copy the items from the "Wiki Pages" list of the imported sub-site to the "Pages" list of a new 2010 Wiki sub-site, but they then just appear as "ASP.Net pages" and don't display the Wiki content.

I've also tried a couple of the commercial migration tools but these also just seem to copy the aspx files and leave them not viewable.


Thanks in advance


Migrating from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010

I am asked to give an approach and estimate to migrate 500+ sites from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010. I am planning to use Hybrid approach of db attach and in-place. My challenge is estimating the time that will be taken for the upgrade. How do I create the estimate for the time taken to migrate, what factors do I consider?

Migrating an FBA application from 2007 to 2010



I was hoping to get a bit of advice or guidance for an FBA scenario, so here goes:


In my 2007 farm I have a web app, “a.domain.co.uk”, with Basic authentication in the default zone. I have extended the app into the internet zone and set up FBA (SQL membership provider) using the CKS:FBA project code. This zone also has anonymous access enabled. This is available as “b.domain.co.uk” and is published to the internet.

We also have two other services “c.domain.co.uk” and “mysites.domain.co.uk” where, like “a.domain.co.uk”, users login with their domain credentials using BASIC authentication/SSL.

Migrating Site Definition from SP 2007 to SP 2010


I am trying to migrate 2007 site definitoin into sharepoint 2010 and for that i am creating a new "site defintion" project in visual studio. my site definition has some listtemplates defined in the onet.xml which requires that the schema.xml and other artifacts be defined in a "lists" folder inside my site definition's lists folder.

Now, if i want to add lists folder, do i need to add the folder direcly by going to "add > new folder" or visual studio provides some item type for that? by itemtype i mean something similar to "site definition" type in visual studio.

Any pointers will be appreciated!

Master Pages in MOSS 2007

'MasterPages' feature in sharepoint 2007 makes the entire customization job easy.In 2003 we used to face lot of issues to get the same look and feel and the standard behaviour for overall site. In 2007, customizing the look and feel for the entire site can be done in a simple way by using 'MasterPage' feature.

Custom tree view for navigating wiki pages

I'm creating an information resource on our intranet (WSS 3.0) using the wiki style format.  The only trick is, unlike a standard wiki, where all pages are directly under the parent, I want to be able to create a customizable tree view where some pages are nested underneath each other.  For example, this particular site talks about all of our different IT systems.  I'll have a wiki page for each system, then underneath each of those pages, there will be more pages for things like training, documentation, etc.  Even though all those pages are at the same level, I need to be able to nest them in a navigational tree view on the quick launch bar.  I suppose if there were also a way to nest the wiki pages themselves, I could just use the pre-packaged tree view.  Anyone have any ideas?

publicly publish some data from wiki pages


We have internal sharepoint site for the staffs which also has wiki pages. We want that wiki pages as public; publish some data from wiki pages.

To do this, one of my friend suggest me to do this:

"For exposing stuff publicly from SharePoint, you can do it using the SOAP interface from SharePoint and using .NET to make an app to read it. "

I'm just beginner of the sharepoint and I'm unable to follow his suggestion. This is not the easy step. 

Is anybody has some thoughts, ideas and some samples, if possible that would be great ?

I really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
