Cascade Update Site Icon to all Subsites

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I added a new icon to my site collection, and I would like to update all the subsites with this new icon.  Is there a way to change the icon on the site collection root site, and then cascade that change to all the subsites in the collection?

Is there a way to update the template of a site?


I am looking for a best practice for managing and applying site design changes.

For instance, in another platform, I could release a site for testing or production use, so content would be added.  At some later date, a change* to the design would be needed and I would take a copy of the design only, make the change and then apply the updated design to the existing site. Content would be maintained but the new design changes would be applied. 

      *A change might mean creating new functionality on an existing element, adding new elements or changing an existing element.

How best should this be done in WSS?

Thank you in advance!

Set Site Icon in Site Definition

Hi,I am trying to set the default Site Icon in my custom site definition.I have changed the titlegraphic.gif in my master page to a new name but that didn't work.In the site definition I have also set the SiteLogoUrl to an image, but that didn't work either.Some people suggest that you should replace the default titlegraphic.gif file with your own image and give it the same name, but I don't see how this could be any good since an update to the sharepoint installation might just overwrite the image again with the default one.Any help would be appreciated!Thanks

When Upgraded a site from Wss 3.0 to Sharepoint foundation 2010, subsites are not working

HI ALL, I recently migrated an old Sharepoint site from WSS 3.0 to Sharepoint foundation 2010. There were no problems during the upgrade and the stsadm command displayed the message that upgrade completed successfully. However when I am accessing the sub-sites from outside the server, I am able to see the content, but when I go to Site Settings, I get an error "File not found". Also the Views for the sub-sites are not working. However on accessing the sub-sites from the Server everything is working fine. Can anyone please help me?  

Need link to parent site from subsites

We have migrated the 2003 site to MOSS environment and that site collection has around 100 sub sites.   In original site we had link to parent site on all sub sites of it.(that link is at right corner of the site)  Unfortunately this option got disappeared after migration to MOSS environment.  and  breadcrumb option also disappeared here we can manually add link to parent site on all subsites either at toplink bar or in mylinks colums but doing this in 100 sub sites is hectic job. We have tried out by making changes at master page by taking site collection masterpage but the changes which we have made not inherited to all sub sites  and also we have enabled the feature of publishing at parent and sub site level and tried to inherit the master page of parent site but it is not getting inherited. Is there any way we can figure this . thanks ..... Ram

Create a Site template with subsites in Sharepoint Server 2010

Hi, I'm with my first SharePoint project, and we are using server 2010 as a Document Management system. The thing is our company has about 300 customers, and we have to create 300 site collections, 1 per customer.  For each site collection, I use the blank site template, and it's very simple page, as I just need a document library in the home page, and then I need to create a subsite called "cases" and the inside profiles, the users create a document library for each case. For subsite I mean, I create a new site and I choose the option to share the top menu, so basically the site has 2 tabs. So basically what I need is a template that has 2 tabs, Home and Cases. Home with a document library in home and Cases empty. Is there a simple way to achieve this? I guess maybe I have to edit some XML files to create a Site Template. If this is the case, can someone point me to the right documentation. Second, I need to create a Visual Basic project so that the final user has a form, and he just inputs the Customer Name and the code must automatically create a new site with the template I metioned before. I guess that once I have the template this won't be very hard to achieve, as I have seen this SPSite class. The question is, can I have the template with the 2 tabs, o maybe I have to use 2 templates, and write code to create the home site and the Cases Subsite.. Ple

Update all Properties in the User Information List after restoring a site collection to a new domain


hi All

I moved a site collection (content db) from one domain to another. After the site collection was restored i ran the stsadm -o migrateuser -oldlogin -newlogin. The result was that the login id of the user in the source domain was replaced with the login in the destination domain.

However the rest of the properties in the User Information List (paricularly interested in the Email) was not updated.

How can i get all the properties in the User Information List with values in the new domain

Thanks in Advance

Second table

1, FirstName
