Can no longer upload any files to the site via Sharepoint Designer

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Greetings.

My colleague is using Sharepoint Designer with MOSS 2007. She made a folder in the site root and is putting pictures of employees there in order to show them in profiles. Suddenly, this morning, she can no longer do it. She can create new folders, rename them, etc, but if she tries to upload any file anywhere via the Designer, a message will instantly pop up (as usual, message is in russian, with no error code...) complaining about "connection time out" or "connection lost" or something. Of course, since she can still rename folders etc, the connection is just fine.

We tried iisreset and reboot of the pc running the designer but it didnt help. Still we cannot upload any file anymore. 

More than that, previously she could upload files with going into a document library, then using an option to "open in explorer", then a windows explorer windows would pop up, showing the address of the sharepoint site folder in adress bar, like "http://sharepointsrv/sites/portal/Sharepoint/" and allowing to copy files into it, and those files copied there would then appear on the server in the doc library. But now copying files this way also does nothing.

How to Establish a Remote Web Site Connection in SharePoint Designer 2007

  

I am modifying a SharePoint site and so far so good.  Some of the objects were created using Visual Studio 2008 (C#).  I was able to modify these objects and implement them on the targete machine without issue.  The final step is to implement the ASPX pages that were modified using SharePoint Designer 2007.  These are aspx pages that are used to modify items in lists.  All the pages involved in this upgrade are customized.  I need to upgrade the target site with the modified version of these pages.  My intent is to copy the code from the page in the source site and past it into the same page on the target site.  I tried using the Remote Web Site connection tool in SharePoint Designer 2007 but received the following error message:

"Unable to open 'https://(site address)'.  Server Error:  Could not find a Web server at 'website'.  Please check to make sure that the Web server name is valid and your proxy settings are set correctly.  If you are sure that everything is correct, the Web server may be temporarily out of service."

I am not sure how to first check to see if the Web Server is temporarily out of service.  I would appreciate your input on how to verify this.

Background information of target machine:  WinServer 2008, IIS 7, Sharepoint (MOSS2007), site on port 80

Trigger a macro anytime a site or web is opened in SharePoint Designer

  
Within SharePoint Designer (not interfacing with SharePoint services), I would like to have a macro automatically run anytime a web is opened. I assume I need to use the OnWebOpen VBA event but I'm not sure how to write this into a module. Is there any chance someone could assist me with what this sub routine should look like? Thank you!

Problem Saving Files to A Sharepoint 2010 Site from Office 2010: Saves locally by default rather tha

  
Hi we are starting to use sharepoint 2010 / word 2010 and have found an interesting bug/problem. Sometimes when a user tries to save a file (by clicking on the save button in the quick access toolbar for word 2010) the save dialog comes up with the users local "Documents" folder as the path (not the correct sharepoint path where the document should be saved).  (I should say that we are creating the file from sharepoint by using a toolbar on the document library, with the new button)  We are using a content type and a template attached to the document library when we create the file.  This is really annoying because the user might not notice that the document is saving locally and not to sharepoint.  I have found a strange workaround which involves clicking the [File] tab on the ribbon in word 2010, then clicking "Save and Send" and then clicking the save button again.  At this point word 2010 seems to "remember" that it is trying to save document to sharepoint and shows the sharepoint document library. This is a real nuisance which could lead to documents being lost/misfiled if people don't realize that this is happening.  Can anyone help me? Thanks Kevin krd

Sharepoint Designer 2007 Not showing files in windows 7.

  
We have some machines running Win7 Pro and SP2007 for general web editing. We are having a problem when we go to insert pictures or browse for a dynamic template, or anything using an insert command. What happens is it brings up the insert window and shows the folder structure but we are unable to see the files in the folders. We have tried compatibility mode and run as administrator options and have had no luck.... If anyone has any ideas id be glad to hear them.

SharePoint / Project Server 2010 Unable to edit a HTTPS site in SharePoint designer 32 bit

  

Hi,

I posted this thread below under a different forum and was requested to move.  Below is our current problem and the feedback that was given.

We currently have a project server 2010 site with several workspaces associated with it.  When trying to edit the site (either from choosing edit is designer from the site actions or from trying to open from within the designer) a dialog appears asking to choose a certificate for the site.domain.com.

The certificate issued by the site is a GeoTrust certificate and checks ok when browsing the site in IE.  This Windows security dialog also appears when trying to export to excel on the same site.

Any thoughts to what we are missing?

Thanks,

Kevin
