How to get Reusable Content to show up in subsite?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have Reusable Content List in my root site collection that contains some custom image layouts and also some custom sub-site navigation that I would like to include in all pages under a particular Subsite.  I created a page template that included the resuable content just fine.  I can also create a page using this template at teh root level without issue, however; I cannot create a page using this template at a subsite level below the root site collection.

Can someone confirm if this is possible or not.  The error I get is:

List does not exist

The page you selected contains a list that does not exist.  It may have been deleted by another user.

Thank you for your thoughts and comments.

Show folder content in a ListBox

Hi. I am close to going crazy here :) I have a small app and I want people to be able to open some files from within it. All I want is a small control that shows me the content of a specific folder on the HDD. My current approach includes a ListBox which should be filled with the documents of that folder. However I have (even after hours of googling and binging^^) absolutely no idea how to get them in there. I hoped that you could databind your ListBox to the file system, but this does not seem to be possible. Do I have to fill it via c# code? If so, how?   Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Provisioning did not succeed. Details: Failed to create the 'Reusable Content' library. OriginalEx

Hi there, I am trying to activate the Feature SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure in a Team Site, but I am getting the following message: Provisioning did not succeed. Details: Failed to create the 'Reusable Content' library. OriginalException: Column 'ShowInRibbon' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user. This environment is running SharePoint 2010 Server, as a result of an upgrade of MOSS 2007 by moving the Content Database. The visual upgrade was applied partially in this Site Collection, not for all the Web Sites. Interestingly for new SharePoint 2010 Site Collections the activation works fine! But not for this specific Site Collection. Any clues?

Assigning a reusable workflow to all content types in a list in one operation?

When creating a reusable workflow I choose a base content type. I would really like to assign this workflow to the content type at site collection top level and get it to automatically work in all lists that include this content type, and also have it set to work for all children of this top level content type. It seems to me that I have to manually associate this workflow to all lists and content types? I am missing something here? Henning

Button inside ListBox does't show content

Hi,   We've made a ControlTemplate that defines a rounded border and some animation on mouseover that is default for our buttons, them we put a ContentPresenter inside this Button, on a layer above that default background so we can change the content of the button depending on where we`re using it. Them, we created a Style (DefaultButtonStyle) that would set the template to our template. And finally, for each diferent button we created a Style (BasedOn the DefaultButtonStyle) that would set a ToolTip and the Content, the Content is a Rectangle with the fill property set using DynamicResource to a DrawingBrush with the image we want for that button. Now, a ListBox uses a DataTemplate that has a button with one of the styles we`ve defined earlier. (Some like a print button for each row on the table).   The big problem is: When we run the program it only shows the image on the last line of the ListBox, all the other lines show the buttons without the Rectangle. Trying to see if we could reproduce the error we`ve noticed that even if its not on a ListBox, if we open 2 instances of the same screen, the button would not show. Is there any limitations on using styles and templates for this? It only bug the Content we added on the Styles with BasedOn the DefaultButtonStyle, the other properties like animations and background (defined in the defaul

ModalPopupExtender allows content panel to show, but everything is disabled

I have a user control (ascx) vs 2010 that contains a modalpopup extender thats popup control is an asp:panel.  In that Panel I have an update panel and a contenttemplate inside the upd panel.  It is a pretty simple example of its use, in that I have list box allowing the users to create a new row in a table.  However, when I click targetcontrol, the background changes to the expended modal background, but instead of being able to use the listbox, everything in the content panel is the same as the background and none of the controls on the panel are enabled.  In other words, the entire page is loaded dimgray, including the updatearea. Not sure what is going on here, but any help would be appreciated.

How to show the content of two tables in one report?


Hi there,

I am working with reporting services for the first time and I have a very basic question, but can't find a solution for it anywhere. I use Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005.

SP2010 Upgrade Error: Missing Reusable Content Types


During the in-place upgrade from MOSS2007 to SharePoint 2010, I experienced the following issue for numerous site collections.  Even though these were errors, the configuration wizard completed with Errors stating that there were some sites not fully upgraded.

I cannot determine how to resolve this error and complete the content database upgrade.   Thanks in advance.


In the Upgrade-YYYYMMDD-######-##-error.log file, the following details were logged for about 15 different site collections:

Not all content type columns show up in DisplayForm.aspx


I have a list that when displaying the DisplayForm.asp does not show all the columns of my content type.  I double checked that the column Status was Optional( not Hidden), so I don't understand why they don't show up.  Can anyone advise please?  For site visitors that only have View rights, DisplayForm is the logical way to view the list item, so they need to see all columns.


Edit - I was able to get the missing elements to display by switching the column to Required rather than Optional.  While I think this will work in my case because the new items are coming from a webservice that provides this data, it doesn't seem like this should be required.  I thought by default ALL columns/fields displayed on the forms UNLESS marked as hidden.

There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

Adding New Custom Folder Content Type doesn't show up on the Document Library New Menu


I been trying to add new custom folder content type to the document library programatically in my sandbox environment and it does show up on the document library. But, when I move same code to the almost similar configured SP2010 environment, adding new folder content type to the document library doesn't show up on the document library's new menu.

Here is the code? Since this code works fine in my sandbox environment, is there any other settings I should check on the server environment which would cause hiding content type on new menu of document library.

  class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
      SPSite spSite = new SPSite("http://sp2010vm");
      foreach (SPWeb spWeb in spSite.AllWebs)
        spWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

        //For each site, cycle through lists
        bool isDocLibraryExists = false;
	      foreach(SPList spList in spWeb.Lists)
          if(spList.Title == "Classified Documents")
             isDocLibraryExists = true; 
        if(isDocLibraryExists == true)
          //Create new doc library
          SPList splist = spWeb.Lists["Classified Documents"];

          //Create Content Type
          SPContentType documentContentType = spWeb.AvailableContentTypes["Classified Documents Folder"

Content Type or Lists Lookup Column can't show additional fields which are Choice or lookup columns


I am trying to create some content types, but this also happens when creating new columns in a list.

Ok, here is my setup (which is the most basic way to replicate the issue):

List 1: Department List
Columns: Department Name (Single Line of Text)

List 2: Document Owners
Columns: Document Owner (single line of text), Department (Choice or Lookup from Department List), Email (single line of text), Lookup Field (Calculated).

Content Type: Quality Document
Columns: File Name, Title, Document Owners (Lookup from Document Owners List), Email (pulled in with Document Owner), Then i want to also pull in Department from the Document Owners list.

That is where my problem is.  When i select the Document Owners List as the list to get the information from, there isn't the option under "Add a column to show each of these additional fields" to pull in the Department column.  This occurs if i use a Choice in the Document Owners list, or if i do a lookup from the Department List.

My preferred method of implementing this system would be to have a multi-value lookup field in the Department List for Document Owners so that the Owners are attached to the Department, and if the owners change for the department they also change for the document that is for said department.  But, i run into the same issue that i c
