Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

Posted By: Amit Mehra     Posted Date: January 21, 2010    Points: 2   Category :SharePoint
 
SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.

How to develop Common Content or Application pages in Sharepoint 2010, with respect to the customiz

  
  I have a top level site and subsites (which might be around 10). Where as the top level site represents a common landing page and each sub site represents a client site to which user will be directed upon login. This is a PUBLISHING web site. I need to design to start with common pages across all clients and if there is a need let the client to customize the common page accroding to their need. This is a PUBLISHING site so all these common pages should have Web parts zones with authoring capabilities. What is the best way of achieving this?    

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.

Developing common content pages that can be hosted at the Web application or TLS level and can be sh

  
We are working on a Publishing site and planning to provision each client as a sub-site under the top level site (TLS). All of these sub-sites will almost have the same web pages and based on the client specific requirement they can customize these pages if needed. To meet the above requirement: I want to develop common content pages or application pages with the publishing capabilities and host them at the TLS, making these common pages available for all sub-sites under the TLS with the following requirements. ·        Sub-sites will not have any of these pages on their own and there would be only one central copy of this common page at TLS. ·        The sub-sites should be able to access these common pages in their context that means using the sub-site specific Master page & Themes. ·        When there is a specific customization is required such as adding a different web part, or updating the HTML data on the page, the common page will be edited in the sub-site and eventually making its own copy of the common page and resulting breaking apart from the common page for any future changes. ·        When the user edits the page he should be alerted that customizing this common page will make a local copy an

SharePoint 2010 Search Service Application: "All Content" scope contains 0 items?

  
I've encountered a nasty bug in our setup. Our Search Service Application manages to crawl all content just fine. However, the scopes don't work. We've got a total of 570 items currently in our crawl database. 350 of these are of class 'People', and appear in the 'People' scope. The remaining 220 items should appear in 'All Content' as part of the intra (sites, documents etc), however the 'All Content' scope reports 0 items. I've tried the following: -Creating custom scopes (still 0 items) -Recreating the Search Service Application twice -Tried different accounts as the content access account. -Ensuring that the content access accounts do have 'full read policy' -Checked the crawl log for successful content (such as sites and documents). However, despite my efforts I still get 0 items for 'All Content'.  Has anyone else encountered this problem, or do you have any recommendation for us? Currently I don't see any other option than to reinstall everything.

"Fields and Content Types for the Windows SharePoint Services Application Templates"

  

Installation of Server Admin "Fabulous 40" Templates -

I saw a new feature appear after the templates were installed by our farm administrator. I didn't see anything in the documentation about it, but it seems like I should activate it.

Should I activate the "Fields and Content Types for the Windows SharePoint Services Application Templates" feature?

Are there any drawbacks?

Any other words of wisdom?

Cheers!

Script to migrate content from one sharepoint We application to another sharepoint Web Application

  

Hello Everybody,

 

I have a requirement where in I will have to move content from one web app to another web app in the same far. Well this migration process has to be automated and scheduled at midnight everyday.

 

My thoughts for this requirement are:

1. Have a batch script scheduled. And basically this script is gary lapointe extensions where in it will copy the content from one list to another list.

OR

2. have a Workflow running at background (this is tedious and I am convinced by this approach)

 

OR

 

3. Content Deployment path in central admin

 

Can somebody suggest me a better approach for this or if any of the above approaches are correct then let me know pros and cons of that method.

 

thanks in advance

 

 


Access denied when Searc Service Application tries to crawl Sharepoint content

  

I have just set up a new SP2010 environtment(3 servers: WFE, App, SQL).

When I try to get my Search Service Application to crawl my main SP site and my MySite location, I get the following error in the crawl log:

"Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled."

Things I have checked:
-
I have ensured that the default access account has "Full Read" on the web application
-I set up crawl rules for both sources specifying a service account that has admin access to the content on those sites
-I logged in to the SP sites using the service account that the Service Application is using to crawl
-I even created a brand new search service application from scratch and got the exact same results

The only difference between this environment and my test environment, where search works just fine, is that this is the production environment and so it uses FQDN with a host header: http://portal.company.org.

Help!

ASP.NET AJAX UpdateProgres control in sharepoint 2010 Application pages ?

  

How to show the Update Progress status on an custom application page in sharepoint 2010 site. Any suggestions are most welcome

Basically we are getting a bunch of list items in the code behind of the application page & processing them, which will take atleast 10 seconds or more, so we would like to show a Update progress Control/image till the process is done. 

Can we use ASP.NET AJAX UpdateProgress control in sharepoint 2010 Application pages ? 


(We also prefer this process asynchronously, but the user has to indicate the list items to be processed, so Update progress control sounds like a good idea )

Integrating a Legacy Web Application in SharePoint

  
This month we will continue with the theme of deploying Microsoft's SharePoint as a company intranet by describing a method for integrating a legacy Web application inside a SharePoint site.

In many companies the intranet site is not just a home page with announcements. It houses Web applications used by many different departments. In last month's article, I built a page to search the employee table in Northwind (the sample database included in Microsoft's SQL Server). This month, I will move the Web pages used to add/remove records from the table into the SharePoint intranet.

Enabling Users to Maintain SharePoint Content

  
When SharePoint is installed as a corporate intranet, there is a considerable amount of effort involved in maintaining the content to keep the site relevant. As we discussed in the first few parts of this series, SharePoint has many built-in features to reduce the burden on the site administrator.

Some areas of the site usually contain less-dynamic information. Internal memos and corporate policies are common examples of this information. One option for this information is to post these documents in a document library. Documents in a library are often stored in a few different formats: Word, Acrobat (PDF), or HTML. Each of these formats has its drawbacks.
