Remove/Hide empty space of quick launch from web part page

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

I created a document library, whose type is "Web Part Pages". When I create a new web part page in this document library the quick launch is missing from the pages. There's a gap on the left side of the web part page for about 200px where the quick luanch would have been.

I don't necessarily want the quick launch to show up at this point. But I don't want the empty space in there either. I would prefer that the web part page covers the empty space on the left side. Can you please advise how to fix this? I had created a subsite before where I don't have this problem.

Let me know if it's not clear about what I mentioned above. Unfortunately I can't post an image here to show what I'm referring to.

The Quick Launch item for the Wiki is no longer bringing up the Home.aspx page


I created a new Wiki Page Library a couple of days ago called "Team Wiki". After playing around with the wiki pages a bit. The default Quick Launch item for the wiki was called "Team Wiki" on the left navigation bar in the default theme. The link when I hover over the "Team Wiki" text points to ".../Team%20Wiki/" which it always has. However, when I click the link it takes me to the URL ".../Team%20Wiki/Forms/AllPages.aspx" instead of the URL ".../Team%20Wiki/Home.aspx" which it used to by default a couple of days ago. Is there any way for me to get my default Quick Launch item to point back to the URL ".../Team%20Wiki/Home.aspx"? The default Home.aspx page is still in the same location as the How%20To%20Use%20This%20Wiki%20Site.aspx page is.

Master Page -- Quick Launch Customization




   I am trying to customize the Quick Launch in my MOSS 2007 installation.  I have been able to successfully get it so that subsites now inherit the quick launch from the parent site (thanks to this post: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointdevelopment/thread/33e31ec1-11d0-4d94-b27c-d1385690f172).  What I am trying to do now is have the current site's document libraries, subsites, etc.  Could someone please tell me how to do this?  I have tried simply just adjusting the settings under the navigation section of Site Settings but that doesn't show the current site's document libraries, subsites, etc. . . . only the parent's.  

  To be a little more specific, under the Site Settings > Navigation, there is a section entitled "Current Navigation", I'd like to be able to not only see the parent's navigation items but also the navigation items below the current site.  Is this possible?


Thank You In Advance,


Adding the quick launch bar to Web Part Pages


Morning all,

Has anyone tried to add the quick launch bar to a web part page at all?  I've been looking at the Web Part Pages stored within C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\1033\STS\DOCTEMP\SMARTPGS, specifically spstd1.aspx.

The way that I've achieved this within SharePoint 2007 was to remove the lines below from the template, which would then render the Quick Launch Bar,

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageImage" runat="server"></asp:Content>
<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderLeftNavBar" runat="server"></asp:Content>
<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderNavSpacer" runat="server"></asp:Content>

Having tried this within the web part pages for SharePoint 2010, I'm not getting the same results.  Does anyone else have any other suggestions?


Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

Change part of a page without full postback


I have a page with two columns. Initially, the left column will contain a list of links that are article titles. Clicking on one of the links will display the text of the article in the right column, keeping the list of titles in the left column. Clicking on another title will clear the text of the first article and display the second. Is there a way to accomplish this without having to repaint the whole page? I would rather not have the whole page resent each time a title is clicked, but rather have the page stay as is and only the contents of the right column get cleared and redisplayed. I assume there's a way to do this with JavaScript, but I don't know how and would appreciate some help. Thanks!

how to add a wiki page as a web part


Hi All,

I have created a feature that generates a page and adds a content editor web part, links web part (using elements.xml). Everything works fine but I would like to replace content editor web part with a wiki page that I am going to create.

For example, I copied an excerpt from elements.xml file that adds a content editor web part for the page.

<Module Path="Dependencies/Pages" Url="">
  <File Url="default.aspx" Type="Ghostable">
   <!-- Add the Rich Content Text Editor web part -->
   <AllUsersWebPart WebPartZoneID="Right" WebPartOrder="1">
          <WebPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2" xmlns:iwp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2/ContentEditor">
            <Assembly>Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c</Assembly>
            <Title>Executive Summary</Title>

 Can someone tell me how I can add a wiki page using manifest (elements.xml) file or some other way?

Add page numbers for paging in data view web part


Hello all,

Has anyone found a solution that will allow me to have page numbers for paging in a data view web part. For instance, if I have 40 items/rows and I set the paging to display 10 items, I'd like the paging to show 1 2 3 4 rather than showing 1-10 and having to click next over and over to get to a specific item.

I found this article, but it is for 2003 and doesn't seem to apply to 2007 or if it does I am not able to really figure out how.


Please help!

Thanks in advance.
