New site creations defaulting to Collaboration mode when collaboration templates are not available

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

A trainer is explaining to me that during a class activity many newly created sites are defaulting to collaboration mode. In these specific instances no collaboration templates are even available. One thing to mention is that this only seems to happen when the class sizes are larger and possibly only happens when multiple students are creating sites at the same time. Is there a limitation in the system surrounding creation of sites in the same container at the same time?

Mainly we want to use it for collaboration purpose (i think collaboration portal is the appropriate template as root site). but in future if the company want publishing portal can i have it under collaboration portal or should i choose now itself the root site as publishing portal  and then create collaboration portal as sub site to meet our needs. can some one shed light on how to proceed and pros/ cons . Cheers, Friend. 

ASP.NET Web Site Templates

I need to redo a web site, and I'd like to start with a fancy template that's asp.net based.  There are tons of web site templates out there, but I'm not finding any that are focused on asp.net developers.  I've purchased an html/.css template, but it's a pain to integrate it into a web site in VS 2010.  I'd gladly pay $100 for a pre-built project.  Does any one know of a site offering such templates? 

Site Pages don't show up in mobile mode

In Site actions, I get the regular URL and the Mobile URL - - I've created several aspx pages with aspx controls on them. Two pages have dropdownlists, textboxes and gridviews. One just has a regular HTML table with aspx buttons, with postbackurls. Any list I create shows just fine, but none of the content in my aspx pages show up in mobile mode. I can get a list of the page names (with the extensions) when I click on 'view All Pages', however, when I click on the links, the content in the page does not show. What are we supposed to do for pages like these, for mobile mode?

ANN: The New Iteration: How XAML Transforms the Collaboration Between Designers and Developers in WP

I'm excited to announce the availability of a white paper that's been long in the making: The New Iteration: How XAML Transforms the Collaboration Between Designers and Developers in WPF.  This is a 28 page white paper written by Jaime Rodriguez and I that digs into issues and solutions when working on a WPF project with both designers and developers.  A result of extensive interviews with developers and designers with real world WPF experience, Jaime and I tried to get some canonical information out there for people trying to live the XAML dream and realize the benefits of the new workflows engendered by XAML.  We talked to both internal Microsoft folks as well as many external companies to coalesce the best practices that are being established in this domain.   Would love to hear people's feedback and thoughts on the paper...

SharePoint 2010 - noticed a possible bug with regard to custom site templates.

Hi All, I'm wondering has anyone else noticed this behaviour in relation to custom site templates. I wanted to move an site A ( content included ) from site collection A to site collection B. I saved site A as a site template ( content included ) I uploaded the site template to site collection B's solution gallery. I created Site B on site collection B using this site template. unfortunately the top links to site A have been preserved causing major confusion to the users. i.e. the shared documents document library link and the tasks link both link to Site A! the links to documents within the document library on the other hand are to site B!? Is this a known issue ? Is this something that I should have expected to happen? look forward to hearing other folks experience with this functionality. thanks and regards, Counie  

Best Way to Convert MOSS 2007 Site Templates to SharePoint 2010 Templates

Ok, I just treid to do something that I didn't really think would work, but now that I've seen it fail, I get to ask the question. Is there a best practice on converting site templates built for MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010. We have several projects that used the Visual Studio Extensions (v1.3) and the SharePoint Solution Generator to build custom site templates and the .wsp packages. I can add and deploy the solution packages using the STSADM tool, but when I try to create a sub-site based on that template, I get an Object Not Set to an Oject Reference Error. In case anyone is wondering, it works fine in MOSS 2007. I have not tried Visual Studio 2010 yet (it's downloading in the background). I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this and what they did to fix it. TIA, John.

Site templates and Library Labels

I have been having an issue with labels and a document library... I have a created a document library...docs, with a new site content type ...doc1 If I then save site as a template....works fine. However, the template I have for the content type doc1, has a Quick Part (label) added to it to show the document version number on the document. In order for this to pass from the library to the document, I need to activate labels on the list through the Information Management policy settings on the library. I have done this  and got the template working correctly, updating the version number within the document. But, now if I save site as a template I get the error...   Error Error exporting the list named "Docs" at the URL: Docs Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: ea226ba4-0a68-4cfb-9b6f-c557f4ec8ab6 I have tried saving the template at every stage and it is fine up until I turn on the Label option. Any ideas?

Types of site templates

There are a number of articles around that list the different types of site template available in Sharepoint 2010. Some of the templates that appear in these lists do not appear as options when you go to create a new site. SPSNEWS#0 for example. Are these templates that should no longer be used? 

Applying site templates fails

Hi, I MOSS 2007 we have created several site templates - all based on 'team site template' and ONLY customized using the browser. All ‘source sites’ are kept in one web app. We have 1)      Migrated this web app to SP 2010 2)      Saved the sites as ‘site templates’ resulting in .wsp-files 3)      Created a site collection WITHOUT reference to a site template 4)      Connected to the  site coll – ‘choose template dialog’ shows up 5)      Added/activated solution (.wsp-file) to the site coll 6)      Tried to apply the custom site template – results in the following error message: ”Filen blev ikke fundet.

Disable site templates via powershell?

I'm looking to disable certain site templates available to users via the "create site" menu and would like to just do it for one entire web application, but not the whole farm. Is there a way to do this via powershell? (It honestly baffles me that this still isn't a UI control via central admin)
