I am using Sharepoint 2007 (MOSS).
I want to hide/remove "Alert Me" action menu item from Custom List/Document Library for my Sharepoint site.
any help will be appreciated.
When a user, who uses Dragon NaturallySpeaking, says "new" when viewing a Document Library the default content type is selected and the associated application (e.g. Microsoft Word) is launched. This scenario is okay for Content Type selection since
the Microsoft Office applications will prompt for the metadata once the file is saved.
If the user needs to create new folders in the Document Library however they need to expand the "new" dropdown menu.
What is the best way for someone using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to expand the "new" menu for a Document Library in SharePoint?
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.
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"
This is very urgent and high priority business requirement. Kindly help me to accomplish the below task.
There should be an option to “Discuss” certain document. Note that the discussion MUST be linked to the document.
If the “Discuss” dropdown is pressed – a new discussion thread should be created.

I'm setting up a public facing SharePoint site for my company, a software house (did I show my age by calling it that?). We're wanting to put together a list of of software downloads, each item on the list having configured permissions for different groups
(such as Group A can see downloads 1 thru 3, Group B can see items 1- 5, and Group C can see all 10 items)
When a logged in group member downloads the file (Send To > Download a copy) or by clicking the litem name, I want to send that person an email, which will contain setup instructions and unlock passwords, etc.
How can this be done?
I've googled and googled, but not been able to find any clues, which is a little unnerving.

Although the context menu is a common element of most desktop applications, it is still fairly uncommon in Web application names because it doesn't map well to a server-based technology like ASP. NET.

When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page.
I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.
I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.
I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.
I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.
