Unable to edit master page - message "building report"

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I am able to open the site (SPS 2010) using Sharepoint Designer 2010. When I browse to the master page, I can check it out and when I try to edit, it gives me a message saying that it is trying to build the report. But nothing happens even if I wait for hours.

I am trying to edit the master page so that I can change the top banner and to provide mouse-over text for the sites. I would really appreciate if anyone could provide any advice to get around this.

I am also curios about one thing. For some reason, I am unable to open the site using sharepoint designer if I try to open the site via http. But I am able to open the https site. Does it have to do anything with alternate access mappings?

Please advise.

Unable to create columns in document library after applying custom master page to site

  
Hi, I have applied a custom master page to a site.There is a document library in it. I am unable to add columns in it or change the default view.Nothing happens when I click on OK butoon after making my changes. However the columns are created/default view is changed when I apply the default master page.

Unable to edit a wiki page

  
Few users who have the full control permissions inherited from the top site are able to create a wiki site (as expected), but when they try to edit the wiki content on the page of the newly created site, they get a permission error (unexpected).  Not all users have this problem.  Another user who belong to  the same people group is able to edit the page without any problem (wierd).  Given below is the error message You are not authorized to view this page You do not have permission to view this directory or page due to the access control list (ACL) that is configured for this resource on the Web server Please try the following: Contact the web administrator if you believe you should be able to  view this directory or page.   Unfortunately, I am that web admin.  No clue what could be wrong.  Please advise. We are using MOSS 2007 single server installation on windows 2003 server SP2 enterprise edition with SQL server 2005 as back-end. Authentication Type: Windows IIS Authentication setting: integrated Windows authentication - NTLM Anonymous access - disabled. Thanks.

Unique content within master page based on conditions met

  

 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?

Thanks!


Passing Linq Statement between master and content page

  

I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
        Get
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result
   'then

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
        Else
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub


On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If


m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?

Thanks


Re-positioning an HTML container with javascript onresize with a Master page.

  

I have an HTML <div> container that I float to the right of a gridview.  When the browser window is maximized, it looks fine.  When minimized, the gridview positions below the floating container and most of the data is pushed off the bottom of the browser - you have to scroll down to see it.

If I position the floating container above the gridview it looks fine in a minimized window, but looks real bad when maximized.

What I want to do is use a javascript: onresize event to re-position the floating container up or down depending on the window.inner.width AND do it with a Master/Content page structure AND do it for only the one page where needed.

I can capture the onresize event and display the window dimensions but haven't figured-out how to do it with a Content page that still uses the Master page.  I think I'm having a very "thick" week...

Detecting Edit or Insert Page

  

I am coding a .cs file that handles the metadata for a particular table. I am putting a custom validation that allows me to update or insert only if the PubMedID is not already in the database. This would be easy except that the PMID should also be allowed to be null as some of the references in the database were not from PubMed. So i perform a query on the database to see if there is already an identical PMID in the database. This works great when using Insert. However, when using Edit, it does not. The PMID is already in the database because the one currently being edited has the same PMID!!! So I know exactly how to change my query etc. However, I do not know how to tell from inside this Edit/Insert agnostic page, which one it is being called from. Thanks for your help! 


Very Basic Question - Error message running first page

  

Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!

 

I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).

 

Appreciate any help I can get!

Thankyou!

 

 


Not getting multiple composite controls on master page

  

I have created two composite controls in the same assembly and registered that assembly in a master page using <%@ Register tag.

When I try to use these controls using the registered tag prefix I am getting only one control along with the tagprefix .

How to get all the composite controls present in the registered assembly?


Master Pages: Master Your Site Design with Visual Inheritance and Page Templates

  

Master pages in ASP.NET 2.0 solve a problem many Web developers have been solving on their own with a variety of techniques for years - providing a single master template for an entire site. This article covers the details of master pages, discussing their usage and implementation and how they are a natural evolution of custom techniques developers are using today.

Is master page a best alternative for Frame Sets ??

  

My webpage has one banner with a logo, a vertical menu bar on the left side of the page and a footer . I have 5 other pages which should get loaded when the user select them from the menu bar. what my concern is actually the banner,  menu bar  and the footer should not change when the requested page loads. This definitely can be handled by sets. But I want to know whether there are any other alternatives for frame sets or could master page be helpful for this purpose ????? 


Any help would be appreciative .

Apply custom.master to "Site Settings" page?

  

I'm using a custom.master page, which is applied to almost all pages available to READ users.

However, I'd like to apply it to the Search, Site Settings, and View All Site Content pages.

I'm not sure where this would be applied.

Guidance much appreciated. Thanks!
