Publishing page: link to a document on another collection

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have an .aspx page in my publishing site. On that page I want to put a link to a document that is in another site collection. So I edit the page, highlight the link text and then click the link glyph on the toolbar to bring up the "Edit Hyperlink Properties" window, and click the "Browse" button expecting to be able to navigate to the other site collection. But when I put the full URL of that site collection in the "Location (URL)" box I get "cannot find this site in the current site collection."

Is there a workaround or setting for this? Is there any way possible I that can use the Edit Hyperlink Properties to navigate to another site collection?

How do I create an Upload.aspx link on the front page of my document library without the subsequent


I need to create an Upload.aspx link on the front page of my document library, rather than rely on the + Add Document link at the bottom of the list.

When I copy the URL of the Add Document link to my page or as a quick link it uploads the file, brings up the metadata form, but then asks the user to save the file on save.

Clicking on the + Add Document link does a clean upload without the reuest to save the file?

The link I create has the format "_Layouts/Upload.aspx?List={ABC123}&RootFolder=tFolder="

Is there some parameter to Upload.aspx? that I need to add?

Link goes to next page but url doesn't change?


I have a text input to get a 'roomID' and an ASP button that calls an 'enterRoom' function:

roomID:<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="roomID"></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Enter Room!" OnClick="enterRoom" />

In my head tags I have my enterRoom Sub:
    <script runat="server">
        Sub enterRoom(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
            Server.Transfer("users/room.aspx?roomID=" & Request.Form("roomID"))
        End Sub

Now when I click that button it essentially goes to the right page in all ways but the URL stays as my default.aspx instead of changing to users/room.aspx?roomID=23423. I've tried it in IE and Firefox with the same results. Is this something I'm not understanding about Server.Transfer or why is this happening and how do I fix it?

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.

Trying to get to a page via an email link. Could the sitemap be stopping this?


I had this working.  I would email a link to a page (i.e. Work.aspx), and using the code below, the user would be routed to the login page and then sent  to Work.aspx after logging in.

But since I added a site map this isn't working.  I always go directly to my home page.  If I set Work.aspx as my start page in VS it works, but not if I click a link in the email.

Any thoughts?

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        if (!Page.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated)

Search crawler 'breaks' Document ID link

Hi all - we have a Sharepoint 2010 development server up and running (very much Out of the Box configuration). The Document ID functionality has been enabled and appears to be working OK - each document has its own unique ID as predicted. In a team site (Corporate Comms), we have a document library where our corporate logo has been loaded (a small .bmp file). This image file has a unique Document ID. On the top level site, I have created a link to the corporate logo so that it appears on the 'entry' web page. The link to the image is : http://<servername>/_layouts/DocIdRedir.aspx?ID=CH07-7-1  where CH07-7-1 is the Document ID When first created, everything works OK and the image appears on the front page. However, once a search crawl has been run (either full or incremental), the image disappears and is replaced by a red cross (i.e. the URL link has been broken). I have tried this with a word document link (as opposed to a .bmp image) and this still works OK. I have also tried storing the image in a picture library (as opposed to a document library) and the same thing happens. Is there something funny happening specific to the .bmp image/Document ID/crawler ? Anything I need to configure ? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Richard.    

need to link multiple detailsview to page from one master detailsview

I have placed on the page 3X3 table and then tried to place a detailsview in the first cell for the first picture called P1dv. I have place a detailsview in the last cell that would control the paging of information called Controldv. I need to fiqure out how to link P1dv paging to Controldv page action. I am using visual web dev. 2005. I am not updating or editing these are read only views.  All help is greatly appreciated.  example of what i need the form output to look like:     picture1   picture2  picture3     name1     name2     name3     Contact1   contact2  contact3what i have coded as of now:asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server"> <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ContactConnectionString %>" SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [driveinfo] ORDER BY [Updated_on] DESC"></asp:SqlDataSource>    <table style="width: 827px; height: 339px"> <tr> <td align="

Need to link multiple External Content List items to a single document metadata column

I have an external content list - for my purposes, the data isn't any fancier than a list of terms provided by a web service (read only - I don't need update/delete functionality). I want to be able to link any subset of those terms to a single document metadata column (in other words, I need it to work like a normal content list that is defined to allow multiple values in a column) but SharePoint doesn't let me do that on an ECL. I need the content list to be externally driven since more values are going to be added to an outside system over time, but I think it's possible that I may not need a full-fledged ECL list to make this work this way in SharePoint. Just to clarify: I don't need the metadata values in my documents to maintain a PERSISTENT link to the web service (if someone changes an underlying value in the web service DB, it doesn't need to be updated in the document table too). I just want SharePoint to offer up an updated set of source values from the web service if somebody goes in and edits the document metadata. Any ideas for how I can make this work?

Unable to Check In Publishing Page

I am running into an issue with a custom page layout that I have created.  On this page layout I have a publishing html field, publishing image field, and a publishing summary links field.  The problem is when I check-in the publishing page as a draft the content in the publishing HTML fields does NOT save and redirects me to the root page in that web. I then checked the SharePoint ULS logs and found the following error. Time: 09/03/2010 11:47:20:18 Process: w3wp.exe (0x1248) TID: 0x0C5C Area: CMS Category: Publishing Cache EventID: 98ee Level: High Description: Trying to store a checked out item (/EN-US/MEDICALPRODUCTS/PAGES/646.ASPX) in the object cache.  This may be because the checked out user is accessing the page, or it could be that the SharePoint system account has the item checked out.  To improve performance, you should set the portalsuperuseraccount property on the web application.  See the documentation for more information. I have tried to find more answers on the web but have been unsuccessful so far.  Has anybody seen this error before or got any possible ideas to try?  Thanks in advance for any help. Craig
