Permissions required for "Copy..." function in "Manage Content and Structure"

Hi! I have a question...

I have created a custom permission role i sharepoint, lets call it "Creator". What List ans Site permission are needed to be able to use the "Copy..." function in sites and subsites in "Manage Content and Structure" tool in Sharepoint?

According to my tests the roles "Approve" as well as the "Manage Permissions" is required to be able to "Copy..". Why is this? Doesn't seem to have anything to do with each other.

Thank you for any hints and tips regarding this!!

Hi all


I need to add custom action to actions menu of document library when user is in "content and structure" and can multiselect items from doclib. (doc lib is active in left side)


Any ideas how to add that?


By default the Action menu contains items copy,move,delete|checkout,discard checkout, checkin,publish,unpublish


Other option would be to add multiselect support to doc libraries.

Approve Multiple Through Manage Content and Structure Not Working


I am trying to approve multiple list items by doing the following:

  1. Manage Content and Structure.
  2. Changing the view of the list to "Pending Approvals".
  3. Selecting all items.
  4. Choosing "Approve" from the "Actions" menu.

Doing this does not result in any approvals; all items remain in the "pending" state.  Some things to note:

  • There are no workflows for this list.
  • I can approve each item one at a time and the status updates to "approved".
  • I am logged in as a site collection administrator.
  • I have tried logging in as the system account to no avail.
  • I have tried choosing "Publish" from the Actions menu to no avail.
  • There are no errors in the event viewer.

Can someone please help with this issue?  I am planning on having lists with hundreds of items and the bulk approve functionality is definitely a requirement.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!


Content and Structure Report not showing all items

I have an environment where the Site Owner is not seeing all items pending approval when they access that view from the root node in the Content And Structure section.

We can see pending items in this view if they access some of the lower level nodes in the tree structure, just not from the top node.

I've noticed that the second level nodes are not inheriting permissions from the root node, but I'm not sure if that is relevant. I've also checked the CAML for the Pending Approval view and it has not been altered in any way.

Any ideas?

Content and Structure reports

Hello, I have 4 production sites that I work on.  1 of these sites uses content deployment to the other 3 sites to keep the top page and navigation in sync between the 4 sites. We a sort of different from the norm, where content deployment is used for test -> production. At the global site I have created a content and structure report that shows only a users incomplete tasks.  I wrote the caml on a different system and got it running on a dev system, then copied the query to production.  Thing is that the query works everywhere except the one global site that content deploys to all other sites.  If the query were broken then it wouldn't work at the other sites, but it does so I don't think it is the caml query.  Just in case I have included it below. <Where><Or><And><Eq><FieldRef Name="AssignedTo" LookupId="TRUE"/><Value Type="int"><UserID /></Value></Eq><Neq><FieldRef Name="Status"></FieldRef><Value Type="Text">Completed</Value></Neq></And><And><Membership Type="CurrentUserGroups"><FieldRef Name="AssignedTo"/></Membership><Neq><FieldRef Name="Status"></FieldRef><Value Type="Text">Completed</Value></Neq>

Manage Content on a Master Page from a Central Location?


Phew long title! But what is the best way to manage and render content on a master page that you want to show up on ever single site/subsite? For example I have a bunch of site collections with footer links. Each site collection however will have its own sets of links but we don't want them hard coded into the master page - so we don't have to manage 80 different master pages.

Right now I am using an XML file in the style library which is called from the master page. This works alright, but if that file gets deleted or something then the whole site breaks because it can't find that file. Additionally, the XML file is finicky with some of the stuff you put in it.

Any better suggestions?

Move page in Site Content and Structure alters revision history and makes old content available


This sounds bizzare, I tried it on an OOTB publishing site.

I have a page X in site A. Page X has version 1.0 and 2.0 approved and published, no minor versions anywhere. I choose to move page X to site B. Page X now has revision history version 1.0 (published and available) and version 1.1, which is exactly the same as version 2.0 but no longer visible to the outside world.

So the first problem is that moving a page makes a previously published and overwritten version of the page content available again. If I publish the page it goes to version 2.0, but I have to remember to do this. Also because I approve the page, my user id is associated with the publication of the content (which is sorta ok) but the original author of version 2.0 has now presumably been lost to the ether ... or the green swirling icon of death.

But I don't publish page X because I think "oops I meant to move page Y" and move it back to site A, without first publishing version 1.1. Now I have version 0.1 and 0.2. 0.1 matches the original version 1.0, and version 0.2 matches the original version 2.0, however the best bit is that the timestamps are such that version 0.1 is now checked in after version 0.2.

I then publish the page, I now have version 0.1 and 1.0, where 0.1 matches the original version

Multiple Approval Not Working using Site Content and Structure


Hi all

I have two dummy users. I have given one user contribute permissions and the other as approve permissions. I have enabled content approval on my document libraries, pages library etc. I have created a few pages,documents etc  using the dummy user having contribute permissions. Now using Site Content and Structure's pending approval section i am unable to approve these docs using the second dummy user having Approve permissons.

When logged in as dummy user 2 (having approve permissons) I am able to see all the documents requiring my approval in the pending approval section of Site Content and Structure. But when i check all the check boxes and click on approve its not getting approved. The page refreshes but the items still remain in the pending approval section without any change.

Please Help...

CMS to manage user's content?


Hi all,

I haven't developed in ASP.NET for a very big while...

I'd like to create a website that will enable members to add content : let's imagine they have items to be sold, and they want to create one web page for each item to be sold. Those pages should be viewable by everybody, but should be editable only by the member who has created it of course. Each item should be stored in a category. In fact it's very similar to what eBay does (except it's not for auction at all), or maybe a site for classified advertisements like www.adoos.co.uk is a best example.

The application should be dimensioned to allow potentially millions of members, with few items (around 1-10) for each member.

I imagine to use the ASP.NET Membership Fx to manage security and user account, stored in SQL Server. Is it a good start?

But I don't have any idea about where and how to store the content itself (user's web pages, with optionally few photos)! In SQL Server? In Active Directory, how?!? Anything else? Is a CMS framework the right tool to be used? Any link would be appreciated.

Thanks to help me starting.

WSS 3.0 Content & Structure Reports aren't working


I'm having trouble with one specific site and the content and structure reports.  In all my wss 3.0 sites, I go to Site Actions>View Reports and choose a specific CAML query.  In one site, I choose a default report such as "Checked out to Me" and I am taken to just the View: Default View. I'll change the drop down again to a different report again such as "Checked out to Me" and it refreshed the view again back to Default View.

What's going on? Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks for your time and help!

Can we have "Content and structure" feature within My Site sites?

Hi everybody,

The "Site Settings > Site Administration > Content and structure" feature is quite usefull to move list / document library items preserving meta-data, history etc.

I did not found this feature within "My Site" parent site or subsites. It seems to be only available in "Collaboration Portal" site!

Is there a way to activate this feature for "My Site" sites?



Error deleting sites from Content and Structure Tool


I get the following error when trying to delete a site and its subsites from the Site Content and Structure tool:

Unable to Manage Content Files During Program Update/Redeployment


I am attempting to include new versions of my Content Files with newer versions of the application. The initial install works as expected and further changes to the program code (Primary Output) update as expected when adjusting the AssemblyVersion.

My problem is that I have not had any success updating or affecting the Content Files placed during the initial install. Currently, I include two different SQL Server 2008 database files (.mdf). My goal is to have program updates replace ONE of the database files while leaving the other one unaffected.


My Research (sorry, I don't have specific links that I have used already)

I have looked around on Google and MSDN trying to find the procedure to manage these Content Files. The closest level of information I found was a comparison that the installer would use on the Last Updated Date of the "new" file and the "old" file. I attempted to manipulate this by changing the clock but neither database file was changed on the update.

It seems this would be handled easily if there were a File Version associated with the database files, but I haven't found any properties or web searches that indicate this.

My Question How do I manipulate specific Content Files to be included with a program update/redeplo

Creating a "content type" folder structure


Hey all:


I'd like to enable users to create a folder structure for their project management by the click of a button, but I'm having trouble getting it to work.  For instance, the user would go to a document library and click "New... -> Project Management Folder".  Inside this newly created PM folder, it would already have several subfolders created such as "Requirements", "Business Modeling", "Analysis & Design", etc.


The first way I thought of to accomplish this is through a custom content type, inheriting from the Folder.  However this doesn't enable me to establish a structure.


Does anyone have any ideas?
