Content and Structure Report not showing all items

I have an environment where the Site Owner is not seeing all items pending approval when they access that view from the root node in the Content And Structure section.

We can see pending items in this view if they access some of the lower level nodes in the tree structure, just not from the top node.

I've noticed that the second level nodes are not inheriting permissions from the root node, but I'm not sure if that is relevant. I've also checked the CAML for the Pending Approval view and it has not been altered in any way.

Any ideas?

showing number of items in sub folder

View All Site Content Showing the wrong number of items

NOTE:  Similar post also had no answer: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointecm/thread/f775ba0d-648f-4be3-9017-78539915b281/ I am the Site Collection Administrator/and also tried logging in using Farm Account.  I go into View All Site Content and I show 15 documents.  When you actually go to the All Items view (and I double-checked, no filtering), you only find 9 documents.  Versioning is not turned on.  I am a developer, so I also used the Web Service to try to troubleshoot.  The Lists.asmx web service shows an Item Count of 15 using the GetList method.  However, using the GetListItems method, the item Count reports 9 items, which is what I see in my browser. Is there an stsadm command that I can run that will "true up" this number being reported in View All Site Content? Thanks in advance. - Update -  MOSS 2007 v 3.0 server farm.

Custom activity feed.

I am trying to implement activity feed functionality for SharePoint sites. User should be able to follow activities (document added, delete etc.) on multiple SharePoint sites by subscribing to it. All sites are available for all authenticated users. Users have the option of unsubscribing to it at any time. I know that I can add custom activities. The question that I have is how can I publish these events to only users who have subscribed to the site. There are about 50K users. Does SharePoint 2010 provide any mechanism for storing who has subscribed to what site and use that to publish the events?

Disable a Specific News Feed Activity Using the Client Object Model


Hello and thanks for reading. I've been working with the out-of-box SharePoint 2010 News Feed portion of My Sites, and I am planning to deploy it to many users.

I am building a console application which will iterate through all of the my sites currently in the system and un-check one of the "Activities I am following' for each user. I have used the example provided at this link(MSDN) to come up with the following code:


 Public Class ChangeActivity

 'Reference: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff426883.aspx'

 Public Shared Sub ChangeActivityProperties()

		Using siteCol As New SPSite((My.Application.CommandLineArgs(0)))

					Dim context As SPServiceContext = SPServiceContext.GetContext(siteCol)

					Dim profileManager As New UserProfileManager(context)

					Dim profile As UserProfile = profileManager.GetUserProfile("THEDOMAIN\username")

					Dim activityMan As ActivityManager = New ActivityManager(profile, context)

					'Create an instance of a list of ActivityPreferencePerType objects.'

					Dim activityPrefsPerType As New List(Of ActivityPreferencePerType)(activityMan.ActivityTypes.Count)

Outlook Social Connector and Activity Feed error


I am testing out the Outlook Social Connector. The Facebook and LinkedIn providers work great, however when I try the MySite provider
I receive an XML validation error.

The connection appears to be successful however when I click on "Finish" in the dialog I get the error message. This is the standard
SharePoint activity Feed

Using Fiddler, I see:


The error is presented after the UserProfileService call. After clicking Ok, I see the final request.

Dropdown lists - showing items based on value


Hi, i have over 100 items all loaded in a dropdown list. They all are assigned a value between 1-10 which represent 10 categories.

When certain buttons are clicked, i want the dropdown list to display only items with a value "1" or "2", etc.

How can this be done?

ListView items added but not showing up.


This is a windows form.

I have a list view and have added items to it, but they are not showing up.

The code seems to run in debugging mode but still i do not see any items.

The listview is in details mode.

      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("bb");
      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("cc");
      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("dd");
      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("ee");
      this.lstvRunDetail.Items[lstvRunDetail.Items.Count - 1].SubItems.Add("ff");

Any ideas?

Thank you


Frequency for Activity Feed Job


Hello -

I'm editing the timer job for User Profile Service Application - Activity Feed Job and was wondering what would be an ideal recurring schedule to set.    Are there any best practices out there for this?  Is every 15 minutes too much/too little?  What type of strain would this cause on the system if the job runs excessively? 



jQuery: Styling DropDownList Alternating Items (Rows)

In the following example, I will show how you can style any asp:dropdownlist very easily.

The example demonstrates how you can change alternating row items background color, using the fadeTo() to add a nice touch in the dropdownlist. You can change alt rows with a couple lines.

Hide a repeater in ASP.NET C# if the DataSource contains no items?

I have an ASP.NET page that uses a repeater nested within another repeater to generate a listing of data. It's to the effect of the following:
In the (C#) code-behind I'm basically using LINQ to pull a listing of information from an XML document and bind that information to the first repeater.

Searching for the answer to this, it seems the method is to determine whether the data for the nested repeater is empty. If it is, then you set the visibility of the repeater to false.

Creating SharePoint items with CreateItemActivity

Instead of creating new list items from code in your workflow you can use CreateItemActivity. CreateItemActivity can be used for creating list items or files. Properties of interest for this activity are the following (most of them are self-explanatory):

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

HttpContext.Items and Server.Transfer/Execute

The problem was basically that when a Server.Transfer call was applied the script container (and also various ClientScriptProxy script embedding routines) would potentially fail to load up the specified scripts.

Get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB.net - C#.net.

n this simple article you will learn that how we can get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB and C#.net.

Image consists of pixels to get the format of the pixel we have a property named pixel format. This property returns an enumeration of pixel format. This enumeration tells the pixel format.

To demonstrate make a window application. Drag one button and a picture box on form.
