Store Publishing Pages in a library besides "Pages"

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi everybody,

I'm trying to see if there's a way to store publishing pages in other libraries and keep their functionality.  For example, I want to make a library called "Things" and move a publishing page from "Pages" into "Things".  This is in order to have the URL's of pages in the site be something like example.org/info/faq.aspx instead of example.org/pages/info/faq.aspx.

I have already tried doing this, enabling the Page and Article Page content types, but I get some weird problems:  The edit button isn't always available, when I try to create a new item in the library it doesn't take me to the page creation page (even though I have pages as the default content type), and moving pages from one library to another breaks the top navigation link.

How could you customize the URL's of your pages without using a redirect or any other hokey solution?

How to set create-only permissions to publishing pages library?

I have publishing site where users can add their own pages to some libraries. I have problem with permissions when user creates new page. Here's how I set permissions: all users are added to members group (by default they can view pages) members group has view permissions also for master pages library For site where users can add pages I set the following permissions on pages library users can add view pages users can add pages When user adds new page then he/she gets automatically edit permissions for this page. So users can edit only their own pages. I found out that add permission is not enough - when user creates page then he/she gets access denied error. The minun that doesn't cause problems is approver permission to pages library (of course, now users can do everything on pages library they ever want to do). Is there any way to avoid making users as approvers?  They only need view and add permissions for page library and view and edit permissions for pages they added. They cannot do anything more. Approving and denying of pages is administrators job. With best regards, Gunnar Peipman   Also visit my ASP.NET and SharePoint blog!

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.

alternative to publishing pages that are editable in sharepoint designer?

when i create a publishing page, i can only edit the page in the browser.  it's not possible to edit publishing pages in sharepoint designer.  i want to be able to edit my pages in sharepoint designer.  so, i'm using web part pages.   now, i want to change the way the title of the page is generated for my pages.  the template i'm using has this:   <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server"> <SharePoint:ListItemProperty Property="BaseName" maxlength="40" runat="server"/> </asp:Content>   i want to change that.  i can change it in each web part page individually in advanced mode.  i can also change the template so that new pages are generated with my customizations.  but i haven't found any way to automatically apply my customizations to all of my existing web part pages. the page layout feature of publishing pages would allow me to do this.  but then, i wouldn't be able to edit my pages in SD.  is there any way to be able to edit pages in SD, and still be able to apply customizations to all of my existing pages in one shot?

I have multilingual publishing site build on sharepoint 2010.We have break the permissions of the publishing pages  on the source language and assuming the same permissions will apply on the target site publishing pages also. But target site publishing pages still inheriting the permission from the site. Just want to assure, is this the default behavior of the sharepoint or something is wrong in environment setup.

Plan for massive update of publishing pages



We have a subsite which is currently in production, but we are planning to make changes to a lot of pages that will only go live on a certain date. The thing is we have to start making the changes as it is impossilbe to make all the changes within one single day. I wonder what the best approach is while the current pages might change daily and we are going to replace a lot of the pages with the new content on a certain date.

Please advice. Thanks in advance

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?

publishing site & master pages



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.


Issue - Copy pages from one publsihing site to pages library in other publsihing site



I have a strange issue, I am copying pages from pages library in one site : http://testsite/subsite1/ to http://testsite/subsite1/subsite2

the pages get copied, I can see the count increasing when page library is viewed from "View All site content", but when I open the library, it only shown default.aspx and not the copied pages. Can any one suggest what can be the reason. Is it related to some rights?

Count in page library shows it has 10 items but when I open library, it only shows 1 page.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
