Publishing Variation source site

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

Hello, I'm kinda in a loop using Variations 2010. Thanks in advance if some one could through some light >>>

After I create variation heirarchy in a site collection: I have 2 folders like English and French. I created a publishing wiki site under English which is my source. When I add some custom content and click on publish it showing 2 options 1) Update 2) Create. When Click on Update it shows successfully updated and when I click on Create - showing ERROR: variation is not enable on site. Essentially I have 2 questions: if I use Update - what is happening behind? like is it creating a french site under French folder or wating for timer job (which I set 1min). 2nd question: If click on Create: does it creates new site under french folder? No superb article out on steps! any advice - appriciated.

Is it possible to configure an existing sub site as variation source label in 2010?

Hi, I am trying to configure variations on an existing site. For example, I already have a site collection and a sub site "en-us" that has all the content. Would it be possible to configure this existing "en-us" as my variation source site? If not possible, can anyone suggest me any work-around? This is very critical and hopefully there is a way to achieve this without having to move all the content from "en-us" to my top level site, create variation labels with different names, and then delete the content from top-level site. Please suggest. Thanks, Karthik

Publishing site template saved using /_layouts/savetmpl.aspx

A trick we used in MOSS 2007 doesn't seem to work in SharePoint 2010 although it seemed to work for someone who asked the same question in this forum.  We know publishing site do not have the "Save as site template" as an option in the site settings so we used <site>/_layouts/savetmpl.aspx to save the site template.  Unfortunately, new site created using the saved template is throwing a 404 error.  And the site was actually created (can see in View All Site Content).  We need to be able to easily create sub-sites with the same look and feel and set of document libraries/lists.  Any advice?

Can't inherit default page layout on a publishing site?

  Hi,   Implementing SharePoint for the first time.   We've got a page layout that we want to use as a default. We've got it set as the default in the top site in the site collection. However, when I create a Publishing Site with Workflow, it doesn't default to using the right layout, despite the fact the sub-site's Site Settings / Page Layouts show that it it set to inherit the default page layout from its parent.   Oddly, when I create another type of site, e.g. a Blank Site, it does inherit the default layout.   Any suggestions?   :|Ben

Using ScriptSrc to reference a javascript on publishing site breaks the Asset Picker dialog?


I'm using a site scoped feature to add a reference to jquery.js:


After activating the feature for a publishing site I no longer can insert a picture from Sharepoint. The Asset Picker dialog throws a script error when I select an image:

Line: 3377
Char: 5
Error: 'style' is null or not an object'
Code: 0
Url: http://www.mysitename.com/_layouts/1033/cmssitemanager.js 

My workaround is to add the .js reference directly in the masterpage instead, that does not affect the Asset picker. The error is easilly reproduced on my development server + a production server. I'm hoping anyone else has solved the issue because I would really like to use the cool ScriptSrc also for publishing sites.


Activating Publishing Infrastructure at the Site Collection level


My task is to my company's branding solution to two new sites. I can upload the solution but I cannot activate it. I can't activate it because SharePoint Publishing is turned off on the sites. When I attempt to turn on SharePoint Publishing, I get this error:

The feature being activated is a Site scoped feature which has a dependency on a Site Collection scoped feature which has not been activated. Please activate the following feature before trying again: SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa
The Site scoped feature being activated has a dependency on hidden Site scoped feature 'FeatureDefinition/22a9ef51-737b-4ff2-9346-694633fe4416' (ID: '22a9ef51-737b-4ff2-9346-694633fe4416'). Hidden features cannot be auto-activated across scopes. There may be one or more visible Site scoped features that auto-activate the dependent hidden feature.

I can't seem to locate the Publishing Infrastructure feature. The Site Collection List provides information about each site collection but no access to their features. How do I turn on Publishing Infrastructure?
