Site content type's column with wrong field type that was created once will not work if re-created


I've created the column 'MyDescription' with type 'Multiline Enchanced Text' in my custom content type derived from 'Page'. But later I understood that 'Publishing HTML' is better for me. I've removed the 'MyDescription' column and recreated 'MyDescription' with type 'Publishing HTML'.

Page layout for my custom content type uses this code to display field

<PublishingWebControls:RichHtmlField FieldName="MyDescription" runat="server"/>

But page falls without any error information. I've deleted and recreated page: it fell always.

When I created column 'MyDescription1' with 'Publishing HTML' type in my custom content type and changed code to this


Site Settings page empty-blank, Site Actions not clickable in custom site created programmatically f



We are migrating from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010 and testing custom code used for creating sites. Sites were used to be created based on a site template, 'STP' file. In 2010, there are no more 'STP' files, instead 'WSP' solution packages are used, so we created a new WSP site template in Solutions gallery. The custom code uses that WSP for creating sites now.

But, when a site is created, and when you go to Site Settings from Site Actions menu, it load empty page - no any settings links or anything, just a blank page (/_layouts/settings.aspx). Also, Site Actions menu becomes unclickable.

Has anybody seen something like this?

Thanks a lot!

How to set Host's Domain Manager in a created AppDomain

I am not sure if this is possible but I would want something similar to loading the Host's domain manager to my new AppDomain. There is no Domain Manager for a newly created AppDomain. Owing to this many of my subsequent call fails. For example if I make a call to "Assembly.GetEntryAssembly" it returns null in the new AppDomain. To workaround this I will have to call "AppDomain.ExecuteAssembly("entryassembly")" in my created AppDomain. I actually do not have a need to do this in my application. Similarly there are other calls such as "ScriptEngine.GetSearchPaths". This again does not return the expected search paths in my new AppDomain. Again if I perform "AppDomain.ExecuteAssembly("entryassembly")" then the expected search path is returned. So in short a domain manager is created in my new AppDomain only when i execute the entry assembly in my new AppDomain; which internally provides me a domain manager similar to the Host's domain Manager (as i execute the same entry assembly). Is there a way to load the Host's domain manager without executing any assembly in my new AppDomain. I am using VS 2008, .Net Framework 2.0.

calling a web service on a remote server from a ASPX page (web site project VS2005)

HI,I am maintaining a web site project in VS2005 and have to call a new web service on a remote server. I've done add web reference, and created the .wsdl and .discomap files in the app_webReference folder.  When I try to create a object representing the web service in the code ( wsnamespace.serviceName ws = new wsnamespce.serviceName(); ) the code wouldn't compile.The web site project is already calling other web services. When I right click on the type representing the web service and "go to definition" it takes me to a proxy class (derived from of course SoapHttpClientProtocol) in the metadata. I think this is what's missing for  the new web service i'm trying to call. Have I missed any steps?Thanks in advance.-me

Navigation settings not applied when site created from template?

Hi, I created a customized site on MOSS and disabled Quick Launch and enabled Tree View on it. But when I create new site from this template it has Quick Launch enabled and Tree View disabled. I downloaded the STP file and looked inside and in the details <Details> ... <EnableTreeView>1</EnableTreeView> <EnableQuickLaunch>0</EnableQuickLaunch> ... </Details> Does anyone have a clue why it does not work correctly? Does this work for you correctly?  

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? 

How to post comments in blogs created on My Site sites

Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor

Master page is reset to v4.master when new site is created.

Hi, I have a site definition which specifies my custom master pages like this: <Project... <Configurations> <Configuration ID="0" Name="Innovations" CustomMasterUrl="_catalogs/masterpage/Innovations.master" MasterUrl="_catalogs/masterpage/Innovations.master"> ... I have a site collection http://myserver/projects and a sub-site TestSite at http://myserver/projects/testsite based on that definition above. I save TestSite as a site template and then create a new site Test2 at http://myserver/projects/test2 from the saved template. All seems to be ok but new site master page is v4.master and not Innovations.master. What's wrong here? Of course I can manually change it to Innovation.master but isn't it supposed to be done automatically upon site creation?

A customized EditForm.aspx page giving error because it has a "People and Group" field with a "Allow

My customized EditForm.aspx which has a "People and Group" column with the "Allow multiple selections" property as "Yes" was working fine until the Agusust cumulative update was applied into the MOSS server. Now it's giving me the error: "An unexpected error has occurred". Needless to say, when I change the "Allow multiple selections" property to "No", the customized EditForm.aspx page works fine.Forgetting whyMicrosoft introduced this error for now, is there a workaround that you are awre of?

Upgrade Solution using a .wsp file created from a site template

Hello, I'm creating a new site template that I will need to move from my development to production server. I have saved the template as a .wsp file and installed it on my staging server without any problems. However, I know once the site goes into production that changes will occur and I will need to upgrade the site template. I have tried to make changes to my development site and save a new site template, and then move to my staging server and upgrade the existing solution using the below PowerShell command, but I get an error that the GUIDS are different and the solution cannot be upgraded. Command: Update-SPUserSolution -Identity MyTemplate v1.wsp -Site http://webapplication/site  -ToSolution MyTemplate v2.wsp Error: Update-SPUserSolution : Given solution cannot be upgraded to the provided ToSolution because the solutions have different Guids. Does anyone know how I would upgrade the solution when using a site template as the bases for the solution? Thanks, wm5

MySite user profile site creation of My Content page is created as provisioned failed (unprovisioned

I've been trying to troubleshoot our User Profile Sync and have noticed the profile pages weren't getting updated with everything.  Most content was but things like memberships and the content tabs weren't.  I also saw this error in ULS: ProfSynch: Exception attempting to enumerate site 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e for ContentDB 23a6e3ef-6d56-4bde-825e-95c6924e2f91: Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ProfileSynchronizationInternalException: ProfSynch: The site with ID 25a72070-4249-4698-ae99-c2a45d25b08e cannot be synchronized due to an unprovisioned root web.      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.GetSynchInfoForSite(SqlDataReader dr, SynchInfo info)      at Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.SiteSynchronizerCollection.<get_Elements>d__0.MoveNext() I checked in the MySite database under the webs table and noticed all the My Content sites for all of our users had the flag column with the number 1315 in them - (meaning unprovisioned as the error above states).  Cross checking with the User Sync Profile database under the SiteSynch table I noticed all of the sites have NULL for the value under both the LastSynch and ChangeToken columns (The User Profile Service Application - User Profile to SharePoint Full Synchronization  timer job takes care of populating that).&
