Adding a second (unique) Note Board web part to a single Web Page?

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


I was asked by a user if she could add a second Note Board web part to a single web page. It seems - and I just want to confirm - that the answer is no.

Adding a second note board web part results in a second note board being added, but pulling the same content as the 1st part - replicating the 1st, rather than creating a unique second.

In that way, the Note Board web part seems tied very closely to the page (since I can't find its related list or other information elsewhere through GUI).

But, perhaps there's a way, on a single page, to tell the page to distinguish between two different note board web parts and their respective content/lists?

Using the social comment note board in a web part page results in incomplete URL



If I create a wiki page and add the note board webpart, then construct a URL for the page which contains a parameter (ie.  home.aspx?tn=1), and add a note, then that note will only display if the "?tn=1" parameter is included in the URL.

However, if instead I use a web part page, (and leave the URL for Notes property blank) the Note Board ignores the parameter in the URL.   I can add the full url with parameters in the "URL for Notes" property for the web part, and it will store and retrieve properly.   

I want to use a web part page with a Note Board web part,  but have it act like the wiki page when saving notes to specific URLs, including parameters.  Is there a work around for this?

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.

Note Board Web Part usage for video comments


I have developed a video sharing website. I actually wants all the videos to be commented. Only one video can be viewed as a time, it is the behavior of the page. I have added Note Board web part to this page. Videos are displaying on the basis of query string parameter ID. I want that only comments for specific video which is currently being played will be visible in this web part rather than displaying all comments.

Can you please help me out to solve my problem?

Note Board Web Part : How to make links clickable?



A growing number of people within our org are using the Note Board webpart (a great thing!). However, it turns out that the Web Part doesn't handle links very well; they can be pasted into a note, but when pasted, they're not active as hyperlinks (need to be copied and pasted to be used).

Is there any way to add clickable links to notes?

Thanks for your help!


Adding the Content Editor Web Part to a SharePoint Layout .aspx page



we've created a layout page that contains the Rich Text Editor web part. But the client requires a web part that allows the embedding of audio/video files. The Rich Text Editor strips out the objects when we try to embed them.

I've used the Content Editor Web Part to add audio and video files (by manually adding the web part to the page), but I can't find the definition for that web part to include it in the layout page so that the client doesn't need to manually add the web part themselves to every page that requires it. (Which could be many pages.)

Any help would be appreciated.



Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?

Editor's Note: Introducing Our Online Corrections Page


One of the great things about working for a print publication like MSDN Magazine is the sense of permanence that the printed word provides. Sure, there are fringe benefits-the trade show groupies and expensive vacation junkets paid for by advertisers are great-but at the end of the day, once something appears in print most people consider it "official" in a way that a Web site can never replicate.

Dynamic Checkboxlist exception when adding to Panel when using Master Page


In essence, I am creating Dynamic Checkboxlist controls and adding them to a Panel.  It works well when I do not have a Master Page configure to this webpage. Once I have a masterpage congifured..

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?

How to create a single entry page for site collections in MOSS 2007



I have  7 site collections containing a few hundred team collaboration sites. Some users are internal (intranet) but most are external (extranet). Extranet users are experiencing problems with losing links to their sites and forgetting which URLs to use. So I would like to create a single entry page that all users can enter after the logon process, which shows a list of sites they have permission to access, and other user-specific information. Perhaps relevant documents, tasks, recently modified documents etc.

I know this sounds like a 'My Site' but we want to use use a general welcome page instead. We use Windows authentication.
What is the best way of doing this and is it something that can be done in SharePoing Designer or does it need to be done in Visual Studio?

Many thanks in advance.
