Lost Site Settings functions

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

I have 2 copies of the same content db.  DB1 was upgraded from WSS 3.0 during an in-place upgrade.  It has all features available.  DB2 is a copy of the exact same DB a few days later and was migrated from WSS 3.0 via a DB upgrade using the backup/restore method.  The second DB has many missing Site Setting functions like, no Solutions Gallery, no Save Site as Template, and a host of others.  Anyone know how to get these functions turned back on?

Apply custom.master to "Site Settings" page?


I'm using a custom.master page, which is applied to almost all pages available to READ users.

However, I'd like to apply it to the Search, Site Settings, and View All Site Content pages.

I'm not sure where this would be applied.

Guidance much appreciated. Thanks!

Programmatically Hide Master Pages from Site Master Page Settings page?



I know there is a field you can check when you edit the properties of a Master Page in the Master Page Gallery to set a Master Page to hidden but ... can anyone think of a way to programmatically hide specific Master Pages from the Site Master Page Settings page?

Maybe this should be two questions:

  1. How do I programmatically access a Master Page in a Master Page Gallery?
  2. Is there a property that can be set that will hide the page from the Site Master Page Settings page?

Navigation settings not applied when site created from template?

Hi, I created a customized site on MOSS and disabled Quick Launch and enabled Tree View on it. But when I create new site from this template it has Quick Launch enabled and Tree View disabled. I downloaded the STP file and looked inside and in the details <Details> ... <EnableTreeView>1</EnableTreeView> <EnableQuickLaunch>0</EnableQuickLaunch> ... </Details> Does anyone have a clue why it does not work correctly? Does this work for you correctly?  

WCF Settings being lost by IIS

Hi,   I have two boxes running the exact same code (Win Server 2008, SQL Server 2008).  The first box has run perfectly for a number of months now.  However the second box has twice now seemingly lost its WCF settings.  Both times the web applicationhas been running perfectly using WCF but then suddenly I get a message in the event viewer   Exception information:      Exception type: UriFormatException      Exception message: The protocol binding '*:8080:' is not valid for 'http'.  This might be because the port number is out of range.  Doing an IISReset on the offending box corrects the issue and everything is fine again. Can anyone come up with a reason for why this is happening? Cheers, M.

SharePoint 2010 Site Actions Site Settings Error

I can not seem to go to Site Settings for a sub site in SharePoint 2010.  I installed SharePoint 2010 developer version on my laptop (Win 7 64bit) with Visual Studio 2010.  Try to create a sub site and go to Site Settings and bam!!! Error File Not Found.  This is frustrating.  Very frustrating.  I found so many problem with SharePoint 2010 and get no where with this version upgrade.  My life is completely ____ now.  Thanks Microsoft!  Why! Why! and Why do you not test your software and make people life much more convenience.  Why roll out this crapy software now on MSDN instead of making it clear that it is not ready??????????  WHY!!!!!! Yes, and I try to go to Site Settings from within SharePoint 2010 Designer.  It took me to the same error!!!!!  So what is going on?

Site FAQ: Email Notification Settings

There are several settings that come into play with email notifications coming from the ASP.NET forums:Edit Profile (http://forums.asp.net/user/EditProfile.aspx)1. Receive Emails: [ ] Yes  [ ] No - This is the master email switch. Setting this to [ ] No will prevent ALL forums-related emails from being sent to you, including password reset emails (if you find yourself in that situation, please use the site's Contact form to request password reset assistance).  Setting this back to [ ] Yes will allow emails to once again be sent to you.  This setting could be handy if you will be away from the ASP.NET Forums for a while and are not interested in receiving emails from the site while you are away.2. Receive rich (HTML) emails [ ] Yes [ ] No - This affects only the format in which emails are sent.  It has no bearing on whether or not emails are sent.  If [ ] No is chosen, the email will be sent in plain text.3. Enable Email Notifications of forum/thread subscriptions and replies to my posts. [ ] Yes  [ ] No - This is the default value of thread subscriptions. This value is checked only at the time of your first post to a thread, and the thread subscription is set to this value. Changing this value has no effect on any existing thread subscriptions. To discontinue (or start) receiving email notifications for a particular thread, see #5 below.&n

I am a Site Administrator, but I do not see Site Settings or Edit Page menu from Site Actions

Hi, I have been using MOSS for over 2 years, but I have not even heard or seen this kind of situation. I am a Site Administrator, but I do not see Site Settings or Edit Page menu from Site Actions menu, and I typed in http://mysitecollection:portnumber/_layouts/settings.aspx to go to setting page manually and looked around there. I confirmed that I am the site administrator, but when I go to Advanced Permissions, I do not see any checkbox beside each users. So basically, I am a Site Administrator on the site, but I am really NOT! What is going on here!?

Missing Tabs and Site Settings Link in Report Manager


Installed SQL Server 2008 with Reporting Services to a Windows Server 2008 box.  Tried to open the Report Manager and had no tabs and no Site Settings link - just a blank home page. I am logged onto the server with local administrator rights, so it shouldn't be a permissions issue.

Thinking the installation was bad (IIS was not installed before installing SSRS), I uninstalled and re-installed SSRS after setting up IIS 7 on the server.  Still the same issue - just a blank home page in report manager with no ability to add users or assign roles or see anything except the links for "Home", "My Subscriptions", and "Help".

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
