Variations: Edit of web part on German page causes English page to be all in German. How to stop thi

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have 2 variations, German and English. When I edit the German page - even just changing a parameter in a web part - the whole of the corresponding English page is converted to English. It is quite a tiring job to then go through all the web parts on the English page and translate title etc back to English.

Is there a better way to handle this? If a new item is added to the German page I do want to have it appear on the English page - I just don't want to have to translate / reconfigure all the existing items.

Detecting Edit or Insert Page


I am coding a .cs file that handles the metadata for a particular table. I am putting a custom validation that allows me to update or insert only if the PubMedID is not already in the database. This would be easy except that the PMID should also be allowed to be null as some of the references in the database were not from PubMed. So i perform a query on the database to see if there is already an identical PMID in the database. This works great when using Insert. However, when using Edit, it does not. The PMID is already in the database because the one currently being edited has the same PMID!!! So I know exactly how to change my query etc. However, I do not know how to tell from inside this Edit/Insert agnostic page, which one it is being called from. Thanks for your help! 

Change part of a page without full postback


I have a page with two columns. Initially, the left column will contain a list of links that are article titles. Clicking on one of the links will display the text of the article in the right column, keeping the list of titles in the left column. Clicking on another title will clear the text of the first article and display the second. Is there a way to accomplish this without having to repaint the whole page? I would rather not have the whole page resent each time a title is clicked, but rather have the page stay as is and only the contents of the right column get cleared and redisplayed. I assume there's a way to do this with JavaScript, but I don't know how and would appreciate some help. Thanks!

how to add a wiki page as a web part


Hi All,

I have created a feature that generates a page and adds a content editor web part, links web part (using elements.xml). Everything works fine but I would like to replace content editor web part with a wiki page that I am going to create.

For example, I copied an excerpt from elements.xml file that adds a content editor web part for the page.

<Module Path="Dependencies/Pages" Url="">
  <File Url="default.aspx" Type="Ghostable">
   <!-- Add the Rich Content Text Editor web part -->
   <AllUsersWebPart WebPartZoneID="Right" WebPartOrder="1">
          <WebPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2" xmlns:iwp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2/ContentEditor">
            <Assembly>Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c</Assembly>
            <Title>Executive Summary</Title>

 Can someone tell me how I can add a wiki page using manifest (elements.xml) file or some other way?

Add page numbers for paging in data view web part


Hello all,

Has anyone found a solution that will allow me to have page numbers for paging in a data view web part. For instance, if I have 40 items/rows and I set the paging to display 10 items, I'd like the paging to show 1 2 3 4 rather than showing 1-10 and having to click next over and over to get to a specific item.

I found this article, but it is for 2003 and doesn't seem to apply to 2007 or if it does I am not able to really figure out how.


Please help!

Thanks in advance.


you do not have permission to do this operation. Whenever I try to edit a page in sharepoint designe


Hi There,

I keep getting the error message "you do not have permission to do this operation" in  sharepoint designer 2007 (WSS 3.0), whenever I try to edit a page in Sharepoint Designer.

I am a farm admin, site collection admin and site admin, after the error message I can click OK and enter the Administrator password which has the same priviliges as me and it thinks about it for 5 minutes then returns the same error, eventually after several hours it will allow me to save changes but it's about a 1 in 20 chance.

As it does save sometimes it would appear to me that somehow it is losing the connection or temporarily losing the credentials. Does anybody have a clue where I can start to find out a solution to this problem. I get the feeling that something is corrupted somewhere but I don't what to look for and where.

Any help, tips, ideas gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.


Web Part working fine on the top-level page but 'Not Safe' error on lower-level pages.


I have created a Web Part which reads and parses the SharePoint logs in order to display usage information of the page it resides on.  The Web Part works perfectly on the top page, reading and displaying the information desired.  However, once the Web Part is added to any page lower in the site heirarchy (sub-page) the same Web Part throws the following error:

Web Part Error: A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Page cannot be displayed or imported. The type could not be found or it is not registered as safe.

Of course the current version of the Web Part is in the SafeControls list on the web.config.

The Web Part was originally designed to return site activity only for the top default.aspx page and worked fine but started to fail in the manner described above once I added the following line of code to return a SPCo

"Only their own" allows users to edit, then shows access denied page

I am managing a WSS 3.0 portal.  I have created custom lists where a group has contribute permissions.  Under List Settings|Advanced Settings, when I set Edit Access to "Only their own" or "None", my test users can see the Edit Icon and the Edit Item menu option, and bring up the Edit Form.  When they click "OK", they get the Access Denied page.  My experience in that past is that they should not even been shown the option to edit, and they should get Access Denied if they somehow navigate to the EditForm.aspx page.  I even tested this on a brand new site, with three Links lists, each with different Edit Access Levels (All, None, Only their own).  I added one user with contribute permissions.  He had the same result: He could get all the way to EditForm.aspx, but got "Access Denied" when he submitted his changes.  What can I do to fix this?Christopher W.

Custom Edit form - close modal dialog and navigate to page

Hi, I created one custom edit form for my document library, replaced default save and cancel buttons with input buttons and added the form action to them. Then I set my page as default edit form.

When I try to save the item by clicking new save button, item gets saved but pop remains as it is. Now, I want the modal pop up to get closed and navigate to page other than the parent page with some parameters after I click save button. How can I achieve this? Thanks!!

Adding a web part to "My Content" page causes error

Under a "My Content" personal page, a user (me) chose to add the "SQL Server Reporting Services Report Viewer" web part to a page. This was repeated with a test account and the same thing happened. Is there a way to fix this? Prior to this, adding a Content Editor Web Part seemed to work just fine.
