Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

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.

Please help.

Using a List View web part to display documents from multiple document libraries from different site

Hi there, I am trying to have one web part display documents (or list items) from different document libraries (or different lists) from different site collections. I have achieved this under a single site collection using Data View Web Part (using SPD). I have also achieved displaying a single document library (or a list) from a different site collection by using List View Web Part. but I am not sure how to get my head around displaying documents or list items from different document libraries or lists across site collections. I have thought of using SPSiteDataQuery or ListViewByQuery, but they all seem to focus one site collection at a time. If any of you have done this before, please share your best practice on this one with me. Much appreciated. Clark

Only fiew part of document library in site page



I'm trying to create a site page containing a part of a document library. I've added a data view web part to my page and then I can see all documents and folders of the library on the site page.

Problem is that I only want to see documents and subfolders that are in a specific folder of the library. I've tried to set the folder scope in designer to "Show only files of a specific folder", but I don't know where to specify the folder. Then I tried to do the same using a filter on the path, but this doesn't work with a "greather then" filter.

Has anyone tried to do the same and how?

Thanks  a lot!

The Group Work Site template has the "What's New" web part on it's home page and I have the follow


I can't find that web part as something I can use elsewhere? As in, I can't add that web part on other pages made even on the same site. What would be ideal is to have that web part available to add as needed to other sites/pages of course. As it stands, for me it seems the only place I can use that web part is on the home page of a new "Group Work Site", i hope that I'm wrong. I've tried exporting the web part, but the importing does nothing when trying to import it to other sites, of course other 2010 sites. Please let me know how I may add that web part to my available to use web parts please.



How do I open an application by clicking on a specific document from the list of documents on SP2010



I created my own file type. And I have an application to open this specific file (xml).  In SP2010 created a list of documents and have uploaded this file type on my list of specific documents and up to here everything is working fine. 

But when I click the file from the list of documents that he was open with my software or whether it is possible to synchronize with the file.
My application (WPF Application) is already prepared to receive through "CommandLineArgument" the name and location of the file. If I go to the folder where my file and make double click, my software starts and open the file.
How do I open t

site member group can only open read-only version of the document


Hi there,

According to this video:
more than 1 person can open a word document and edit it at the same time.

When I test it, it doesn't work.
I can open it fine but my colleague can only open a read-only version.
We're both using Office 2010.
I found out that I'm part of OWNER group, while the other guy is just a MEMBER group.

I've checked the permission for MEMBER, it has "contribute" permission, which allow him to edit document library:
<label for="idspnidEditListItems">Edit Items  -  Edit items in lists, edit documents in document libraries, and customize Web Part Pages in document libraries. </label>

If I add him to OWNER group, he can work on it like the one on the video (link above).
Or, I can add individual user and assign DESIGNER role to it.

My question is: why he has to be in the OWNER group (or DESIGNER role)?
since we have many people working on the document but only 1 person to be included in the OWNER group, it's not a good idea to add everyone to OWNER

MOSS 2007 Intranet Home page "My Links" suddenly missing. "My Site" is there.


Hi all,

If anyone has seen this issue, or is aware of it, your help is appreciated it.

Our intranet homepage is suddenly missing the "My Links" link on the top right corner.  The welcome message and "My Site" shows up.  When I click on "My Site" and it takes me to my profile, I can see the "My Links" on that page. 

However, it is no longer showing on the homepage.  This is the case for all users.

How can I re-enable it or make it show on the homepage again?  Anyone know what would have caused it to suddenly disappear?  We have not been making any changes to the home page or the intranet.

Site Analytics - how get specific list item id to display in Top Page Results

We have created a new Site to store Knowledgebase Articles. The articles are being added as items in the list. We now want to find which are the most viewed items. When I look at Site Analytics, I find several pages being returned including what I believe are the Items viewed. When I look at the details under the graph or when exported to Excel, this the is extent of the Page URL (/lists/kbarticles/dispform.aspx?...). There are several occurances of this same URl which I expect are separate items that have been viewed. How do I get the ID of the item or other information, so I can track it to the specific Knowledgebase Article? Additional information: I can click on the URl and it will take me to the unique Knowledgebase Article.
