Page Layout and Text Layout Buttons Disabled on Ribbon

I am trying to create a publish site in Sharepoint 2010, and I am using the Ribbon control.  Currently, I am having trouble adding and changing content on my site, due to both the Page Layout and Text Layout buttons being disabled.  I have been trying to figure out what security or feature needs to be active to get these enabled again.  Any help would be appreciated.

SharePoint 2010 Central Admin--Create/Extend Web Application button on Ribbon are disabled


My Dev Environment is  SharePoint 2010 on WIN 7. I have 2 users

1) Built in Administrator- Member of FARM Administrator

2) Dinesh02\Dd – Also member of FARM Administrator

Now when I Sign-in with my account and use Manage Web Application link, on the Top Ribbon none of Button is enabled. I can not create Web APP nor Extend it.  When I select web application from list, some button are enabled but not all. Also I can see role as Contributor

This does not happen When I sign-in with Built-in\Administrator account.

"This control is currently disabled..." Most Library-->Documents ribbon actions are greyed


This started when I just needed to delete a document, I noticed most of the actions on the ribbon for Library-->Documents were greyed out.  The only thing that is not greyed is Upload document.  I have tried with multiple administrator accounts, installed office client on the server, I have tried from multiple clients and get the same thing.  Windows 7 and Office 2010 are on the clients I have tried.

Is it possible I may have missed an explicit permission that even an administrator account (domain admin + SP site collaction/farm admin) does not have?

"Connect to Outlook" and "Open Schedule" disabled in Ribbon on instance of Project Tasks list


Hi Everyone,
I am creating a custom list template for "Project Tasks", essentially I need a customized version of the OOB Project Tasks list. I've cloned the OOB feature over to my Visual Studio 2010 solution and I am able to successfully deploy my version as expected, with everything fully functional, gantt chart and everything, except one thing. When I provision an instance of the list using the OOB list template, I am able to see everything in the Ribbon enabled. However, when I provision an instance of my custom list template (clone), I see the "Connect to Outlook" button disabled, as well as the "Open Schedule" button disabled - which allows you to open the task list with Microsoft Project (I have all Office 2010 clients installed, including Microsoft Project).

I am guessing there must be some type of setting somewhere that associates the OOB list template to those Ribbon items that I see as disabled. The only thing different between my list template and the OOB list template is the Type ID. Could this be the problem?

Where should I be looking to troubleshoot this issue?

Customizing the UI around the Filters


I have started working on a new project and thought it would be a great idea to dig into the latest version of the Dynamic Data framework that shipped with VS2010.  For the most part, I am impressed, it seems to be pretty easy to extend and create a rich and flexibile UI -- at least that is what I thought until I got to working on a better layout for the filters.

The situation is this:

I have a table with 25 columns and I need to display around 10 different filters (basically and interactive report) -- the filters are of various types.

The problem:

How in the world do I custom the UI layout of the filters.  It seems that with the latest QueryFilterRepeater control we have been left with almost nothing to work with (outside of turning filters on/off and setting the FilterUIHint).  What if I wanted to wrap all of the filters in an expand/collapse region and then inside of that have then sitting in a table of no more than 4 columns (so with 10 filters I wold have 3 rows). 

I have tried extending the QueryFilterRepeater but it seems like there is nothing in that class that we can work with (the data binding events are not even used).

Am I missing something, or am I just out of luck right now?
