Selecting custom masterpage in Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - where and how?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I'm now building a test site just to research on Sharepoint Foundation 2010.  As I know, on previous version (SP2007), we have to install a 3rd party tool to enable selecting a masterpage for WSS 3.0.  And here, the new version Foundation 2010 too, does not has this feature.  So, if I have customised 2 masterpages and would like to apply into two different sites in the same port, how can I apply my custom masterpage?  Unfortunately, the 3rd party tool does not compatible to the Foundation 2010.  I think this is the weakness of WSS3.0 and Foundation 2010, especially when we are requested to have more than 1 masterpage to be applied into the sites.

Does anyone know any way to make Foundation 2010 to enable the masterpage selection?

Creating custom IP-STS for sharepoint foundation 2010 without ADFS

I plan to create very simple custom IP-STS for SharePoint foundation 2010 without ADFS server so anyone can integrate Windows Live ID to SharePoint foundation 2010 simply without ADFS, I can't use ADFS server because it could not install on Windows Web Server 2008 (Web Edition), also I found many article use LDAP provider but it does not exists in SharePoint Foundation too (it requires Sharepoint Server Edition). After too much searching I just found the following article and find all technique except one problem. 1)    Creating Custom Claim Provider: http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2010/03/13/writing-a-custom-claims-provider-for-sharepoint-2010-part-1.aspx 2)    Creating Custom STS Provider: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/chunliu/archive/2010/04/02/how-to-make-use-of-a-custom-ip-sts-with-sharepoint-2010-part-1.aspx   Only one step remains: I got following error after enter username in STS site and redirect to http://localhost/_trust/default.aspx , ( I leave EncryptingCertificateName empty). Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object I expect to get access denied error instead of that error. Is it possible anyway? So does anyone know where can I ask my question except this community? Can anyone help me where can I find working article to create custom IP-STS without ADFS server Any idea will help me Thank

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson
