Error "List does not exist" trying to insert pictures or links from Content Editor WebPart

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have put a Content Editor WebPart on a page and I'm trying to insert a picture from the Rich text editor, but whenever I try this I get this error:

List does not exist.

The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

This also happens when inserting links. When I use Fiddler I can see that the error occurs somewhere in AssetPortalBrowser.aspx and It's likely that the last location used to insert pictures and links no longer exist. So the question is how do I reset the location to point to a list on the current site, or any other list for that matter? I tried deleting and adding the WebPart on the page without any luck. Typing in a valid link in the link text box or setting the attribute "DefaultToLastUsedLocation" to "false" in the call to AssetPortalBrowser.aspx did not work either. I read the solution at http://mossipqueen.wordpress.com/2008/08/08/assetportalbrowser-error-list-does-not-exist/ (de- and re-activate Office SharePoint Server Publishing feature) but the feature is not activated on my web. Does anyone have a tip on what to do? This happens on a live SharePoint environment so there may be some restrictions as to what I can

Display error when inserting table in Content Editor Webpart


I've got a MOSS 2007. I want to insert a table into the Content Editor Webpart using the Rich Text Editor. I am choosing "Insert Table" and the new window occurs. But I can't do anything.

The buttons in the format section are not enabled.

There are a lot of display errors. (I wanted to upload an image but I don't know where...) The display errors are pictures with the name "TRANS.GIF" lying in the images folder of the 12Hive. There are several of these images maybe to align the context.

To summarize:

  • I can't use the "Format"
  • There are disply errors (images) in the dialog
Can anybody help me?

Content Editor Webpart not working in web part page


I Have a CEWP, i have written jquery for displaying the same.It works fine when i do the following:

Site Actions --> Edit page -->Add a Webpart --> CEWP --> and in the Source control editor, i paste the jquery. My jquery does a calculation by comparing two values A and B in a list. If A is greater, one image is shown, if it is less another image will be shown.When the user clicks the image the list gets opened and on the change in the values the image will be changed. This works perfectly when i do the above.

But when i create a Webpart page, it gets created in the Shared Documents site. And when i add a web part and does the same thing, my CEWP is not showing the correct image.

Insert Error not helpful



I am using VS2010

When I try to updated or insert a record in my User table I am getting an error that does not make sense to me and I cannot figure out what is wrong.

Also, when I try to insert a new record I get a validation error saying that the Id is required. However it is an identity field in the db so it should not be necessary to send it to the server.

Could you please shed some light?

Error in / Application after adding employee search in webpart


Hello everyone,

I am working on sharepoint 2007 and I was editing the webpart of the software and after adding the predefined employee search table, the server has crashed while trying to access the server remotely with the following error message:

Error in / Application

However, while trying to login locally I have no problem and can easily login.

What will be the course of action in fixing this error.

Also the site is complaining of an invalid certificate even after adding an exception.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Content Editor Web Part in default.aspx not copied over.


I have a CEWP with some content in the default.aspx page on one site, and I downloaded and uploaded the default.aspx page to another site collection. But when I display the default.aspx page in the browser the CEWP is not there anymore.

Is the CEWP detached from the default.aspx page and must also be copied over to the new site collection? If so, then where is the CEWP stored?

Thanks for any help.

Javascript error on Rich Text Editor of CEWP

Hi all,

I have a problem that is really bugging and I wasn't able to find any workaround all day. I'll try to give as many details as possible:

I'm maintaining several site collections on a single server and this problem occurs only on one of the site collections. However it occurs on all subsites of this collection, it occurs on old pages and newly created pages, even on pages containing only one empty CEWP.

When I'm pressing the button for Rich Text Editor of CEWP I get the following error:

Message: Invalid argument.
Line: 5740
Char: 2
Code: 0
URI: http://www.dyrlaegeankenaevn.dk/_layouts/1030/HtmlEditor.js

I've tracked down the error with IE developer tools and I found that the error pops up in HtmlEditor.js at

function RTE2_GenerateLaunchArguments(parameterArray, webUrl, containerID)

I followed containerID down the stack and it comes from:
