Hide style library form view all site content



We have upgrade our MOSS 2007 server to SharePoint 2010. We keep it in MOSS2007 Competible mode, so that end user cant see any changes.

But after upgrading, we have found "style library" in document library, which was not present in our moss 2007 server. It is an publishing feature of MOSS2007.

Now we want to hide this "style library" from the document library, we have deactivated publishing feature on site collection and site level. But still, we are not able to hide or deactivate the "style library". Can anyone tell why it is so and provide solution to hide this?

Any help appreciated!!!

View All Site Content Showing the wrong number of items

NOTE:  Similar post also had no answer: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointecm/thread/f775ba0d-648f-4be3-9017-78539915b281/ I am the Site Collection Administrator/and also tried logging in using Farm Account.  I go into View All Site Content and I show 15 documents.  When you actually go to the All Items view (and I double-checked, no filtering), you only find 9 documents.  Versioning is not turned on.  I am a developer, so I also used the Web Service to try to troubleshoot.  The Lists.asmx web service shows an Item Count of 15 using the GetList method.  However, using the GetListItems method, the item Count reports 9 items, which is what I see in my browser. Is there an stsadm command that I can run that will "true up" this number being reported in View All Site Content? Thanks in advance. - Update -  MOSS 2007 v 3.0 server farm.

Hide ribbon, Hide site content/recycle button. Caledar overlay. Document publishing. Other questions


I have a 2010 farm operational and working well. I had a few questions.

(1) How to disable ribbons from appearing on the top (for anonymous sites).

(2) When I move the mouse over a tab in the top bar, how do I display a banner. It was easy enough in 2007, but I am not sure in 2010.

(3) I have disabled quick launch. But it still displays all site content and recycle bin. Is there a way to not to show those.

(4) Calendar overlay - Is this to display multiple calendars in one calendar using different colors to differentiate them. But if I had calendars in different site collections, then I guess due to the gallery boundary, I cannot calendars from multiple site collections.

(5) Document publishing - For some reason, this was easier in SPS 2007. I am not able to get it to work in 2010. Basically update a web page dynamically from a word document. Could anyone kindly provide a link. Also, would I be able to update a page in one site collection from a document from another site collection.

(6) Is it possible to move a folder/doc from one document library to another in one site collection (without webdav). Further, can I move a document library from one site collection to another.

Please advise. Sorry if I asked too many questions in the same post. I am newbie and this is my first post.

How do I view all content of the root site in my collection?

Hide public view of list on left menu - no SD - Sharepoint 2003


Hi folks,

I'm working in a crippled sharepoint environment - basically our multinational company has given us a Sharepoint with a Teamsite template and no tools to get the best out of it.

I have created a site with a list containing 3 public views. 2 of these views are for the "the workers" to input and view data. The 3rd view has all items, and is for management information for a select number of users. These users do not use the view directly, it is picked up by an Excel spreadsheet.

The 3rd view in it's completeness is sensitive information, and we would like to remove the view from the views menu on the left hand side. I suspect that this may be possible using javascript code, in a CEWP. I am making this assumption because this article seems to be doing something similar:


I am not familiar with javascript or the objects referred to, although I have used javascript previously to amend column widths in a view. 

Any suggestions?




ASP.NET 2.0: Speed Up Your Site with the Improved View State in ASP.NET 2.0


View state is a wonderful thing. It allows the ASP.NET developer to maintain state for server-side controls that are not form elements.Used judiciously, it can improve the user experience. But in the wrong hands, it can cause your pages to grind to a halt. The release of ASP.NET 2.0 will include a variety of improvements to view state that will make it easier to use and less likely to slow performance.

workflows when saving site as template with content

I have have a MOSS 2007 site on a production server with custom workflows.  I saved the site as a template with content and used the template to create a sibling site.  I am testing it and the workflows aren't working.  Is this to be expected? I have read that workflow don't work when saving between development and production, but I can't find anything that addresses both sites being on production. Will I need to recreate the custom workflows by hand? 

Programmatically Hide Master Pages from Site Master Page Settings page?



I know there is a field you can check when you edit the properties of a Master Page in the Master Page Gallery to set a Master Page to hidden but ... can anyone think of a way to programmatically hide specific Master Pages from the Site Master Page Settings page?

Maybe this should be two questions:

  1. How do I programmatically access a Master Page in a Master Page Gallery?
  2. Is there a property that can be set that will hide the page from the Site Master Page Settings page?

How to hide the list ribbon in XSLT List View Web Part?

Hi, In SharePoint 2010, I have a custom list "Clients" on a site. On the home page of the site, I have added a Clients List Web Part. When I access the home page in a browser and click anywhere in that list, it displays the "List Tool" ribbon group which has "Items" and "List" ribbons. I do NOT want these ribbons at all when clicking on the list. How do I achieve this? Should I disable the click event on the list so these ribbons do NOT appear? How do I disable the click event on the list? Or What should I do to hide these ribbons when clicking on the list? Basically I want it to behave same as content query web part. In content query web part, if you click anywhere in it, it doesn't show up any extra ribbons. I want the same behavior with list web part. Thanks, Hitesh

RenderAction failing in site.master, but works in a view

Hi, I have a master page into which I'm inserting a 'Search' partial view, which I've called 'pSearch.ascx'. I need to pass in a model to make some data available to pSearch, so I am using RenderAction from the site.master page, which then should call a [ClientActionOnly] Action on the 'Home' controller, called SearchPartial(), which in turn returns the pSearch view.Code from site.master:    <% Html.RenderAction("SearchPartial", "Home"); %>Code from HomeController.cs: (the method is virtual because I'm using T4MVC in the project)        [ChildActionOnly]        public virtual ActionResult SearchPartial()        {            return View(MVC.Curious.Views.pSearch);        }This is the error: "No route in the route table matches the supplied values."However, when I remove this line from site.master & insert the IDENTICAL RenderAction() call into one of my view pages, it works fine.I've been pulling my hair out, trying permutations of how it's called and different approaches, but can't work this one out, particularly because it works in a view page based on site.master, but not in site.master itself.Can anyone suggest why it wouldn't
