CQWP and Event Content Type Issue After Upgrade from 2007

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

If you can answer this question it will be greatly appreciated.  I know it's a weird one and I know most of you guys on the forums are top notch, but it might stump the lot of you.  So I challenge you to help me out if you can.

I am working with a colleague and he upgraded the a very large farm with about 20-30 servers.  It has about 60,000 users.  All the other site collections and applications work fine, but one.  We are having a weird issue with the Content Query Webpart.  We cannot get it to work right when we scope it to an event list.  In the drop down it's not showing any content types when it should show List Content types -> Event.  In the list type it's show greyed out "Asset Library".

Now I did notice the event content type was hidden, so I went through the fix to move it to List Content Types.  I thought this is sure going to fix my issue right?  You would think so, but it didn't fix the issue.  So I am thinking there is something corrupt with this content type.  If any of you have an idea or some suggestions I'm all ears.  I'm looking for really crazy thinking out of the box answers.  Thanks for any help in advance.  If you help me I'll try and pay it forward to the next person.  If you don't I'll still pay it forward by answering other question

WSS 3.0 Content Type with Office 2007

  

We're currently encoutering an issue on our production servers with Office 2007 documents. In essence, the Content Type for all docx, xslx, and pptx documents cannot be changed away from the site default on all newly created sites.

I've even done some step by step debugging on an SPItem insert and I can set the content type to a custom type, but it reverts back to the site's default Content Type on Update(). Other file types - .doc, .xls, .tif, .txt, and .jpg - have all been tested, and all work as expected (the Content Type changes correctly).

Thanks in advance!

 


SharePoint 2007 - Consolidating everything as feature into WSP [Content Type, Page Layout, Pages, Ma

Issue with List Definition of same base content type and deployed via same feature

  

I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature.  Below are the details of my issue.

  • Two custom list definitions
  • Each custom list definition has its own custom content type
  • Each custom content type inherits from the base content type Picture (Type = 109)
  • The custom list definitions are grouped together under one single feature
  • The custom content types are grouped together under a seperate single feature

When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.

What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine.  Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?

If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.

Feature Upgrade Functionality - Adding a new Content Type and List Instance

  
I've successfully used the upgrade functionality in SP 2010 to upgrade my list structures as needed. So far, these updates have been adding new fields to existing content types. Now, I have some new fields, content types and list instances to add, and am having trouble getting this accomplished. The scenario is this: - A new content type with a single custom field (also new), and a list instance for this new content type - A new field that is a lookup back to the new list instance defined above. This new field is added as an existing content type. - In my feature.xml, I have the Element Manifest specified with both new fields and an AddContentTypeField element for the new field being added to an existing content type:   <ApplyElementManifests> <ElementManifest Location="V1_04\Elements.xml"/> </ApplyElementManifests> <AddContentTypeField ContentTypeId="0x0100..." FieldId="{8028A1C8-1147-4DF7-B5C3-8A1F84A30360}" PushDown="TRUE"/> The result of running the update on this feature is: - My new field that is part of an existing content type is added - My new field that is part of a new content type/instance is added - My new content type and list instance is NOT created, therefore my lookup is broken Any idea why my new Content Type and List Instance is not being created? Do I need to specify there

SharePoint 2007 upgrade to 2010 without UI update masterpage issue

  
I have a public facing site on a SharePoint 2007 farm that will be upgraded to 2010.  This site has a very customized look and feel that will not initially be updated to the 2010 UI.    I have run into one small issue with 2010's handling of legacy 2007 UIs.In SharePoint 2007,  to have a different master page for the application pages and dialog boxes we utilized an HTTP Module to switch the master page on the fly.    After migrating the SP2007 into our 2010 beta test environment the HTTP Module no longer worked properly.   I did some debugging and found out that SharePoint 2010 is returning a NULL value for MasterPageFile property on the pages in the _layouts folder.   I would have expected to see the URL pointing to the application.master page (or dialog.master).   Any ideas if this is a bug in SP2010 beta and will be fixed in RTM or is this the intended behavior.If it is the intended behavior in SP2010 how could I update my HTTP Module to allow the site to continue functioning as it did on 2007?   

Event Receiver - for Content type gallery

  

I wanted to attach a code whenever a new content type is added to the site content type gallery.so that when ever a new content type is created it will copy to all the site collection.

Is it possible to attach an event receiver to Site colomun and site content type library?


InfoPath 2007 Form Content Type does not save as infopath form but as xml document.

  

I have a couple of infopath forms deployed to sharepoint as content types. Normally, when a user creates a new document of an infopath content type, the form opens in browser mode and ,when the user fills in the form and saves the form, a new document is created in the document library with the correct icon and progid.

This was before... Now, whenever I save a form, the form submits correctly, i see the file in de document library, BUT it has the icon of an XML document, all the infopath functionality is gone and when I click the file, I get a save as dialog...

The form itself hasn't changed that much and even when I redeploy a version that worked before it still does not work. However, when I create a new doc lib and associate the malfunctioning form there, the behavior is normal and i can still reopen the saved form.

 

Little sidenote: I have 7 different forms that now do not work on my test machine. It used to be only one, but after redeploying them, all of them have the same problem. Now when I deployed these forms in a production environement, the same thing started happening there. So I stopped the deployment and in production there is just the newly deployed form that does not work.

I have already tried reassociating the form to the doc lib. And everything looks normal in central administration.

Any suggestions?

Custom Content Types Missing after 2007 Upgrade to 2010

  

Hello everyone - 

We have a portal solution leveraging custom publishing content types and page layouts in 2007. The database was backed up, and the upgrade was done via dbattach on a 2010 environment. The site works seemingly fine - though there is some strange behavior we noticed where a few content types are missing.

The Content Type Gallery lists only say 10 of the 15 content types we should have. Loading the Master Page and Page Layout Gallery we see the inheriting content type, though clicking on it yields in an error as though it cannot find the content type. These are all custom content types, though they are not very different from each other.

Has anyone experienced this problem and devised a solution? - I tried to iterate through the site collection via a console application to see if I could somehow update or intercept the issue with the missing content types to no avail. I'll be open to suggestions / tools recommended...

All the best,

Alex

After SharePoint 2007 upgrade to SharePoint 2010 issue with custom site(s)

  

With our 2007 site(s) we had a custom module (we developed) to swap out the application.master with our own master page which resembled the site default.master.  This worked great.

After the upgrade, out site's main pages looked fine however when navigating to the admin type pages (settings/viewlists etc.) pages the module stopped working.

1.) I have figured out something things with respect to what is going on but am still at a loss to how best resolve.  We want the layouts/admin pages to have the same master page as the main user pages.   I have read in 2010 this is now possible.  How can I achieve this?

 

2.) Currently, when navigating to the sites/settings page the site is using template/layouts/layoutsv3.master as the master page.  The settings.aspx page has DynamicMasterPageFile="~masterurl/default.master" .  It was my understanding that when DynamicMasterPageFile was set to default.master it would use the master page from the site.  So, with that said I am confused why it is using layoutsv3.master

any help would be appreciated

Issue with Announcement content type and adding a new item

  

Hello,

I have the following issue with the (Silverlight?) form to add a new item:If the screen has many fields so scroll bars appear (i.e. it's longer than the screen), you can move up and down. YET, if you press to attach a file, the scroll bars dissapear, so you can't see the rest of the form.

To reproduce: 

a) make an annoucement list

b) Add a choice field, add many choises and enable multiple values - in order to have a longer-than-the-screen input form.

c) Go to the list , press add-new-item and attach a file: After that, you won;t be able to see all the input form.

SharePoint 2007-2010 content upgrade, Summary Links web part closed after upgrade.

  

Has anyone seen this before?

Did a DB content upgrade from SharePoint 2007 to 2010.  After the content upgrade (with only a warning saying that an unknown 3rd party web part was missing), we reviewed the new site, and found MANY pages which contained Summary Links web parts suddenly had many (but not ALL) of the Summary Links web parts now marked as closed.  At first we thought the parts were missing from the page, but when we edit the page we see the parts are in the Closed gallery.  We can add the part back in from the Closed gallery and all it's originally set properties are there.  Why are they coming up as Closed after the upgrade when they weren't Closed BEFORE the upgrade?

More details:

We have quite a few pages that contain one or more Summary Links web parts.  On SOME of the pages, one or more of these web parts are now Closed.  However, not ALL of the pages that contain these parts have the parts closed, and on the pages that now have these closed parts, not ALL of the Summary Links parts on that page are Closed, so it is not a problem with an unregistered Summary Links web part as the part is working on the same and other pages (I found other people on the web mentioning issues where NONE of their Summary Links parts are working after an upgrade.)  So, it seems to be somewhat random as to which instance

updating content type failed during publishing Infopath on MOSS 2007

  

Hi Folks,
 
I am new to MOSS & Infopath-2007. I want to publish form on MOSS onto Document Library not as Content Type. Last week, i published form successfully, but suddenly since last thursday, I am not able to publish - it gives me "updating content type failed" error. :(
 
I am publishing with Domain Trust, no certification is sign (actually, not required in my case).

Thereafter, I tried creating new template with single button/textbox, but it gives same error.
 
Today, i tried with blank form, it failed again with same error.

I tried creating Form library from Infopath form as well as from MOSS, but no help.
 
doing Googling, i only got 2 solution - timeout or too many columns added from infopath - but in my case there are only 3-4 columns i want to publish. 

I tried below links, but no help:
