Custom tree view for navigating wiki pages

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I'm creating an information resource on our intranet (WSS 3.0) using the wiki style format.  The only trick is, unlike a standard wiki, where all pages are directly under the parent, I want to be able to create a customizable tree view where some pages are nested underneath each other.  For example, this particular site talks about all of our different IT systems.  I'll have a wiki page for each system, then underneath each of those pages, there will be more pages for things like training, documentation, etc.  Even though all those pages are at the same level, I need to be able to nest them in a navigational tree view on the quick launch bar.  I suppose if there were also a way to nest the wiki pages themselves, I could just use the pre-packaged tree view.  Anyone have any ideas?

Sharepoint 2007 - Wiki site - New Pages Not Inheriting Custom Master Page


I am working on a SP site (MOSS not WSS) which is heavily customised away from the OOTB layout. I need to create a Wiki site, which was going well - I've created a master page which displays the miniconsole (this was not visible with our customised layout), and made it the default master page for the site. This has been applied to the two standard pages that come with the Wiki site, however when a new page is created, it seems to inherit the default.master, rather than my custom master page - thus not showing the miniconsole.

When I have created a new page, I am able to use SharePoint Designer to attach my custom master page to it, which works perfectly, however this will not be a viable option going forward as end-users create their new wiki pages.

How can I get the new pages to inherit my master page when they are created?


Custom tree view is missing when UIVersion = 3




I have a site that was built for SharePoint 2007, which includes a custom tree view control. I've deployed it to a SharePoint 2010 server, by adding the site as a solution, adding the feature which contains the tree view control to a newly created site, and adding the SP2007 site's Master page to the new site.


I've tried setting the UIVersion of the site to both 3 and 4. Here's what happens:


-when UIVersion = 3, the site looks the same as it did in SP2007, except the custom tree view control is missing

-when UIVersion = 4, the custom tree view control is there and works fine, but the site looks completely different, and the formatting is really bad (eg. the tree view takes up 50% of width, content takes up the other 50%).


When I open the site (with UIVersion = 3) in SharePoint Designer 2010, the custom tree view control is there. It only seems to be missing when I actually browse the page.


There aren't any relevant warnings/errors in the logs which suggest a problem.


What I want is to have the site look exactly like it does with UIVersion = 3, but with the custom tree view control. Is there something I have to do to get a custom control/feature working with UIVersion 3?






Custom Master Pages on View Scopes and Keywords fail?


So I'm applying the system master page on my sharepoint 2010 site and noticing that everything is branded (yes!) but a couple pages were not...

these are: viewscopes.aspx and listkeywords.aspx

Has anyone encountered this issue? ... I know that in 2007 the best approach were HTTPModules, and I tried it out here. The pages were branded BUT they crashed on certain operations and were simply not stable. I wonder if this is a product bug or?

Key thing to note is that these pages in the layouts folder do not have the new 'DynamicMasterPage' attribute declared on the directives section of the page. So I really can't figure out if they were intentionally left unbranded (unbrandable if you will).. help?!

Custom Control Design view error



I have created a custom control from scratch and it works fine as in you can build the project that uses it and it works fine at runtime. Problem is when you go to design view the control shows an error in the place of where the control should be rendered.

Error: '<SomeValue>' Could not be set to '<SomeProperty>'

This shows up on all my custom set properties. These properties are created as basic as possible. I can give the properties values in Source view and run the app just fine. I can even add a Onclick event. If I don't set any custom properties the control will render fine in Design view. It's only when I set a value to a custom property.

Property Code Example:

public string Text
                string ret = "";
                object obj = ViewState["Text"];
                if (obj != null)
                    ret = obj.ToString();
                return ret;
                ViewState["Text"] = value;

I've even removed the Category and Description tags with no difference.

I don't know if what I said makes sens, but I hope it

publicly publish some data from wiki pages


We have internal sharepoint site for the staffs which also has wiki pages. We want that wiki pages as public; publish some data from wiki pages.

To do this, one of my friend suggest me to do this:

"For exposing stuff publicly from SharePoint, you can do it using the SOAP interface from SharePoint and using .NET to make an app to read it. "

I'm just beginner of the sharepoint and I'm unable to follow his suggestion. This is not the easy step. 

Is anybody has some thoughts, ideas and some samples, if possible that would be great ?

I really appreciated. Thanks in advance.


Unable to move Wiki pages with Bracketed ([[, ]]) Links


I'm using Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 (pre-SP1) to host a Wiki, and it's been a learning process as I've been going along.  In this process, I keep finding better places to keep Wiki Pages and Wiki Libraries, so I move things around to find the best fit.  I've run into a strange problem while moving my collection of ~100 Wiki pages, and I'm curious to see if others have it to.  The problem is, I cannot move or copy Wiki Pages that contain links to other Wiki pages using the bracket method (of writing a link as [[other page]]).

Here's how I reach the problem:

-Create 2 Wiki Pages Libraries,  I called mine Wiki PagesA and Wiki PagesB
-I go into my Wiki PagesA library and create a new Wiki page.
-I call it "linktohome" and enter only a single line in the body, "[[home]]"
-I can open it up and it works just fine and the link redirects me to the Home page in the local Wiki PagesA library so it's all good.
-Next in my main Site Collection that's hosting these libraries, I'll pull down Site Actions and go into Manage Content and Structure.
-I can browse into Wiki PagesA and the linktohome document appears
-But, when I try to copy (or move) linktohome to Wiki PagesB library I get an error that says:

can template save custom pages?


I created a template off a site I made last year (without content). That site had some custom pages with webparts on them.  These pages were linked to from the Quick Launch menu.  I just made a new site using that template and it appears the custom pages weren't part of the template as when I click on the links to them in the QL menu, I get a 404 page not found error. I tried again saving the template with content this time and my custom pages show up - but then I have all the lists/libraries filled with old content.  Any remedy?

I am on MOSS 2007 and can use Designer.

We tried applying the custom css to the MOSS 2007 calendar control - month view, it does take the custom css and applies it, but when i click on any date and come back to the calendar control, it changes the CSS of the MOSS calendar control back to the default one.

Let me know if anyone has any suggestion on  how to customize the calendar control for css for our intranet application.

Your response would be highly appreciated.

stsadm export / import custom view / personal view views

Hi, i have to export and import a website with a sharepoint list including all personal views. The personal views are used by the endusers in excel data connections binded to the list.  Loss of personal views during import is not mentioned in the technet discription of export / import command ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766807(office.12).aspx  ) I am actually testing the export / import between two site collections, but always losing the personal views (MOSS 2007 with CU April 2010). This discussion had the same topic http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/4e299838-72c2-4f56-8dc3-05ba2a2999d9  but with no definite answer. Please tell me if this is by design or what could cause this behavior. Thanks in advance. Boris Boris Schlotthauer

Show wiki page library columns on wiki pages- SharePoint 2010

I created a wiki page library in SharePoint 2010 and added a few columns to the library. However, these columns do not show on the actual wiki pages as they did in SharePoint 2007. I looked through the library settings but didn't find anything to turn on this feature. Does anyone know how to do this or if this feature was even included in SharePoint 2010? Thanks.
