MOSS 2007 Discussion Board reply error

Created a standard webpart Discussion Board and can add discussion items OK but when tried to reply to item got error 'The page cannot be displayed'. After several attempts eventually worked when the item description was only 4 characters or less. looking at the response URL it appears to be excessively long, some elements seem to be repeated in the URL string e.g. https://xx.xxxxxxx.com/theworks/OandR/TDMBE/Lists/Discussion%20Board/NewForm.aspx?RootFolder=%2ftheworks%2fOandR%2fTDMBE%2fLists%2fDiscussion%20Board%2fhave%20consultants%20got%20enough%20supplies&ContentTypeId=0x0107&DiscussionParentID=2&Source=https%3A%2F%2Fxx%2Exxxxxxx%2Ecom%2Ftheworks%2FOandR%2FTDMBE%2FLists%2FDiscussion%2520Board%2FFlat%2Easpx%3FRootFolder%3D%252ftheworks%252fOandR%252fTDMBE%252fLists%252fDiscussion%2520Board%252fhave%2520consultants%2520got%2520enough%2520supplies%26FolderCTID%3D0x01200200A1C51FB6047510439F93B774F153C4CB%26TopicsView%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fxx%252Exxxxxxx%252Ecom%252Ftheworks%252FOandR%252FTDMBE%252FLists%252FDiscussion%252520Board%252FAllItems%252Easpx   Does this suggest that the URL length is the root of the issue. The users are using IE6 also. If i connect directly onto one of the front end web servers and try to do a reply then it works as expected and response URL is much shorter i.e.   http://servername/theworks/OandR/TDMBE/Lists/Discussion%20Boar

Workflow - automatically create discussion item using title field of of custom list item as its subj

Anyone any ideas as to how I can configure SharePoint to create a discussion item using the title of a list item. e.g. user creates list item on a custom list - SP automatically creates a Discussion thread for this list item in the discussions list. I'm guessing this can't be down OOTB . would I be looking at SPD or a coded solution ? regards, Counie

Workflow will not create a new Discussion


Trying to find a way for a workflow to create a new discussion using SharePoint Designer in WSS v3. The workflow action "Create List Item" will create an item in the existing discussion board, but it doesn't work like a discussion that is created manually. For instance, on the workflow created discussion, there is no threading and if you hit reply, it  creates a new discussion, not a reply message.


The idea behind this is someone is nominated for an award and for the person to receive the award they need 5 different people to agree to it and discuss why they should or should not get it. Trying to make this easy using the discussion board, but an open to any other ideas since the above doesn't seem to be possible.

Creating item in discussion list via Workflow.

I have a custom list that starts a workflow when a new item is created.  This workflow creates a new item in a discussion list.

When you click on the new item in the discussion list it displays the page with the Edit Item link at the top.  You do not get the discussion board looking view.  If you attempt to reply, a new top level item is created with "(no title)"and the "Replies" count stays at zero for the parent item.

If you create the discussion manually by clicking "Add new discussion" everything looks and functions as expected.

Any help is greatly appreciated!


When I use the Action "Create item in list" it's using the content type of "Message" when it should be "Discussion."

How do I specify the content type?  Im using Sharepoint Designer to create the workflow.  Yes "Discussion" is the default content type in the list.

Cannot set the email from address (reply-to) in SharePoint Designer workflow

I have created several workflows for custom lists. Among other actions, they send out emails. It appears however, that they all use the same from-address. I would like to supply each of these workflows with different reply-to addresses.

Can I do that? After a lot of searching it appears that the only way is to create separate Web Applications, since the reply-to address is set on Web Application level. But that would require several extra web applications in my case, which again need their own site collections and sites.

I really, really miss a "From" field in the SharePoint Designer workflow "Send e-mail" action.

Best regards, Jan.

Discussion Board - different permission settings for Add Discussion and Reply


When I restrict users from adding discussions, they will automatically be restricted to reply. What if I want to restrict users from adding discussion but they can still reply. I don't know if this is customizable or needs coding already. Hope you can help me with this. Thanks!

Foundations: Workflow Services for Local Communication


This month's column describes how to use WCF for communication between a workflow and a host application in Windows Workflow Foundation 3. This knowledge should help developers with their efforts using WF3 and prepare them for WF4, where WCF is the only abstraction over queues (referred to as "bookmarks" in WF4) that ships with the framework.
