Is it possible to add a custom menu group to the Site Actions button?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I know I can use a Custom Action to add a new menu item to my Site Actions button .

Is it possible for me to add a new menu group to the Site Actions button? For example, like the OOB Site Settings menu group, which then extends out to offer additional items such as "Modify All Site Settings" etc.

Add "New Calendar" to the site actions menu in SharePoint 2010

I really like how SharePoint 2010 uses Silverlight to allow users to create a new Document Library from the Site Actions menu.  I would like to alter the v4.master page and add a new menu item to the Site Actions menu that allows the user to create a new Calendar.  How do I alter the code below to make a new menu item that will create an events list? <SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate runat="server" id="MenuItem_CreateDocLib" Text="<%$Resources:wss,siteactions_createdoclib%>" Description="<%$Resources:wss,siteactions_createdoclibdesc%>" ImageUrl="/_layouts/images/NewDocLibHH.png" MenuGroupId="200" Sequence="220" UseShortId="true" ClientOnClickScriptContainingPrefixedUrl="if (LaunchCreateHandler('DocLib')) { GoToPage('~site/_layouts/new.aspx?FeatureId={00bfea71-e717-4e80-aa17-d0c71b360101}&amp;ListTemplate=101') }" PermissionsString="ManageLists" PermissionMode="Any" VisibilityFeatureId="00BFEA71-E717-4E80-AA17-D0C71B360101" />

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!?

My Communications Director would like us to add an "Email this Page to a Friend" type of feature to our SharePoint 2007 Intranet.  They would ideally like to have this feature available on every page.  But I was thinking that even if we could add this item to the List Actions menu it would suffice.  Does anyone know of a webpart that will do this or can offer some custom code and instructions on how to make this happen?

Custom Submit button rule breaks down in the middle of the actions


I have an infopath form that is published to a SharePoint library.  After the form is filled out, the user clicks a custom "Submit" button which has a rule with the following actions: 1) submit to main connection (database table), 2) submit to connection (SharePoint library - which starts an approval workflow in SharePoint), 3) thank-you message, and 4) close form without prompt.

99% of the time, all works well with form data getting submitted to database table, and also to the SharePoint library (which triggers the approval workflow).  1% of the time, when my custom submit button gets clicked, only the first rule action performs (i.e., data is submitted to main database connection), but the process stops at the action to submit to the SharePoint list.

I have checked and triple-checked the actions in the submit button rule, and they appear to be correct - and, in fact, behave correctly 99% of the time.  It's that 1% when the rule breaks at the point of submitting to SharePoint library that has me crazy.  This occurs only sporadically with different users -- users who it works correctly for most of the time.

I also have a form field I created called "DupChecker" that looks in the database table to see if the exact record exists, and if it does, it will not allow the user to submit it again.  So when the use
