publicly publish some data from wiki pages

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

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.

Using Server-Side XSL for Early Rendering: Generating Frequently Accessed Data-Driven Web Pages in A


Dynamic data-driven pages have become the basis of many cutting-edge Web sites. Early render systems can provide better performance and maintainability for data-driven Web sites by generating frequently accessed pages that contain less-volatile information ahead of time. We'll show you an example of a server-side solution that uses Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) to merge data and layout information into HTML that is compatible with just about any modern Web browser. Using these techniques to render Web pages early can reduce the load on your database back end and increase performance for your users.

When I use 'publish', site doesn't work when i post data


Arrgghh, I am so tired of dealing with stuff like this

I've got a project, when I put up on another server I point two sites in IIS6 to it

i have

http://www.main.com  pointing to the folder the files are in


http://www.anotherofoursites.com/main pointing to that same folder in it's own "Virtual Application" or whatever IIS calls it when you put a folder into it's own 

If I just "Build" and push all the files up.. both work without issue and as expected...  but when I use "Publish" to precompile, the site works until I post, and then i get nailed with:

Server Error in '/' Application.
Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Custom tree view for navigating wiki pages

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?

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:

Unable to copy/move wiki pages with links to other wiki pages

When I try to copy or move wiki pages from one 'Wiki library A' to 'Wiki library B' through 'content and structure', I get an error for the pages which contain links to other wiki pages, does sameone has a clue how to fix this:

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?


Customizing pages with Asp.Net Dynamic Data Domain Service Web Applications?

Hola, It used to be so easy creating new folder under CustomPages with the (Entity/Table name) and copying on it all base default PageTemplates (Details, Insert, Edit, List and ListDetails) and you will get access to those pages only for the specific table (this was the default automatic behavior of the Dynamic Data framework) When it comes to be using Asp.Net Dynamic Data Domain Service Web Applications it seems that we need to learn a new way of doing this because it is just simply different and you got a lot of errors when compiling your application if you do this the old way? What might be the new way, uh? HOW DO WE DO THIS NOW ... I MEAN ... CREATING DEFAULT CUSTOM PAGES FOR SPECIFIC TABLES (Details, Insert, Edit, List and ListDetails) with Asp.Net Dynamic Data Domain Service Web Applications? The problem arises when the definition for your newly created classes is absent from the automatically generated code when you created your domain service !!!!! . If you simply copy the PageTemplates as they are, you got a duplicated error message because the new .designer file (automatically generated) conains the definition of the class you are copying (not the newer one) so even if you rename your .aspx file the result is not what you would normally expect (the .designer class is not regenerated after renaming). The .designer file keeps the domain service definition and if y

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.

Best practice: Where to save data from application pages?

Hello, I have a feature scoped at site level which contains some application pages, where I need to save some "settings data" from. I'm thinking I should use some hidden lists in the root of the site collection to save this data. For example one of the application pages registers timer jobs that should then use information entered in the application page. I'm wondering if this is, in your opinion, the right approach? Thanks.

How to change the order of Webparts in Sharepoint 2010 wiki pages

In WSS you change the order of webparts just by moving them above or below another webpart. This does not work any longer in SP 2010. I want to move a list webpart above another list webpart. How can I do it [SP2010 Foundation].

How do I add categories to Wiki pages?

I have sharepoint 2010 and I need to add categories to my wiki pages. The problem is that the category field is greyed out and clicking the tags icon next to it does nothing (nothing opens, no error messages). I know this is looked after by the managed metadata and I have access to this and I can add/create/remove terms and groups. But for the life of me, I can't get the categories to open up and be usable. And I can't find any info on troubleshooting this. Can anyone help? I could be doing something stupid so forgive me if this is a dumb question.

Migrating 2007 Wiki to 2010, many pages are now uneditable. help?

We've recently applied to upgrade to 2010 on our SharePoint site.  We've noticed though, that most of the pages in our wiki library no longer allow web-editing in the browser.  I assume this is because some of the code in these pages was 'custom'.  In SharePoint Designer, the pages that do not allow editing have this message under Customization Status:

This file has custom page markup.

The pages that are editable have this message:

This file is based on a file from the site's definition.

Is there any easy way to convert the old pages into proper site definition, editable pages?  I've tried selecting the message at the top of each problem page that reads: The current page has been customized from its template. Revert to template.

but this only ends up with an error message when trying to revert:


Cannot revert to the site definition version of this file. It is a c

SharePoint Wiki pages non editable after in place upgrade to SharePoint 2010



We recently upgraded SharePoint 2007 SP2 farm to SharePoint 2010 farm uisng in-place upgrade. The upgrade was successful execept the Wiki pages library pages showing unusal behavior. 

All the content in Wiki pages library under the SP 2007 site were upgraded to Wiki pages library under the same site after upgrade to SP 2010. But the WIKI tool bar is not showing the Edit button on Wiki pages and hence the Wiki content is non editable. 

We did not receive any error or informtaional message in the pre-upgradecheck on prior to upgrade.

I would highly appreciate if some could help get the issue resolved.

How to publish pages in SharePoint Designer

I created 2 pages using  share-point designer and customised them as form. I want to publish these 2 pages to a remote share-point site with WSS 3.0. How can I do this?

passing form data between pages


Hi All,

I have to split a long form into two pages. In the first page, I have a  button "Next Page" to second page and in second page, a button "Previous page" to go to first page. How do I keep the form data when click "next page" and "previous page"?

I am using session variables to pass the form data. I have the server control Enableviewstat as true, but it still doesn't work. What else should I do? My code as below:

  protected void btnNext_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            Session["fname"]= txtFname.Text;



Dynamic Data. Multiple Custom Pages For The Same Table



I've just started out my first project using Dynamic Data and I've been running into a series of problems. Dynamic Data doesn't seem to be swimming in documentation. Anyway, my setup is:

  • Visual Studio 2010
  •  .net 4.0
  • Dynamic Data Domain Service Web Application Project Template (I have the RIA Services for ASP .net installed)
  • using an Entity Data Model
  • using a DomainService class
  • ASP .net Membership

There are a couple of things I am trying to achieve:

  1. I have my scaffolding turned on for all the tables. I am using the RequiresRole attribute in order to restric access to some tables. I have understood how you can create a Custom Page Template for a certain table, no problems there. I would like to be able to use the default PageTemplates for lets say the Administrator role and the Custom Page Templates for another role; the idea would be that the Administrator would be able to edit anything in the DB, but the restricted user would receive a Custom Page with only a few actions available. Long story short: is there a way to access both the standard and custom templates?
  2. Related to question number 1: Can I have multiple Custom Page Templates for the same table? I saw someone asking
