How do I enable/add the ability to Customize my Theme in SharePoint 2010 if the section is missing?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Question: How do I enable/add the ability to Customize my Theme in SharePoint 2010 if the section is missing in one site collection on a server?

Preface:
I'm doing all this on a staging server, not our production server.
I have a site collection that has been successfully moved from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint 2010 Server (Enterprise).
I ran the Visual Upgrade on all sites in the Site Collection, so that the v4 interface is being used.

When I edit the Theme (Site Actions / Site Settings: Look and Feel / Site Theme), I can only choose an existing one, and have no way to Customize it. The Customize Theme section simply isn't present.

Notes:
Another new Site Collection (not an upgrade from WSS) on the same server correctly shows the Customize Theme section.
I checked all the features available and didn't see anything that stood out. (It's possible I missed it).

Content Query Web Part missing in SharePoint 2010

  
If you don't see content query web part listed in the web parts list, this is because you have not enabled "Search Server Web Parts" feature in site collection features. Enable this feature and content query web part will show in the list of web parts.

Is there another way to assign group permission?

Search Service Application missing in SharePoint 2010

  
I installed SharePoint 2010 (Enterprise edition), enabled Enterprise features but it is missing Search Service Application when I look under Central Administration > Application Management > Manage Service Application.   When I click on New it doesn't even list "Search Service Application".    When I goto Upgrade and Patch Management > Check Product and Patch Installation Status, it tells me that "Microsoft Search Server 2010 Core" was Installed.  Under Manage services of server, "Sharepoint Foundation Search" is started.  Does anyone have an idea why the "Search Service Application" is missing and how can I install it?

Sharepoint 2010 Missing Content Types

  
Has anyone run into an issue where your system's base content types dissappear after deploying a new site definition.  We are doing a proof of concept using several CMS solutions and decided to see how sharepoint would fare in the process.  I worked on the POC for 6 weeks without any issues.  After selecting sharepoint as the solution I started refactoring my code into a more logical structure as many of the components were developed from sample code.  I created a couple of custom site definitions that were pretty simple.  Basically I copied the onenet.xml from the publishing site template that sharepoint uses and made a few simple modifications like associating my custom master page and a custom content type with the default page.  When I initially developed these I had no issues at all but yesterday I suddenly was not able to create sites using these site defs.  I figured there was some kind of conflict with my old templates so I deleted all site collections on the server and then tried to create a new site collection and then I couldn't even create a base publishing site.  I got an error indicating the base content type did not exist.  After spending hours going through logs it was clear that sharepoint was not able to build the content type hiearchy when creating new sites so I took a look at the UI and there were only abo

Is there a Belltown theme for SharePoint 2010? Or a way to get there?

  
Our sites were built off the Belltown 2007 theme.  We've upgraded to 2010 and want to do the Visual upgrade. However there is no Belltown theme.  Has someone built a 2010 version of it.  It REALLY would have been nice to have a way to have a consistent color scheme from version to version.  Thanks for any help on this.

Recreating a SharePoint 2007 Theme for SharePoint 2010

  

Hi all, Hopefully this is an easy question for somebody. There is an existing theme in SharePoint 2007 called "Wheat" and I need to import or recreate this to be used in a SharePoint 2010 site.

I know you can add a theme through "Site settings - Galleries - Themes" and adding a new item in SharePoint but can you copy or export a theme from SharePoint 2007?   


How to enable Word 2010 to save to one of the document libraries on a newly installed Sharepoint Ser

  

Hello,

I have a newly installed Sharepoint Server 2010 (say, http://spserver/) somewhere on our LAN on Windows Server 2008 R2. And I am working with Word 2010 on my Windows 7 machine. I have created a Document library somewhere in a subsite of the Sharepoint server (say, http://spserver/subsite/doclibrary)

Now, working with Word 2010 I want to simply save the document that I'm working into that document library Doclibrary. I go to Word 2010 backstage... and can't find anything there.

1) Save As? It only shows my file system...

2) Save & Send? I see there Save to Sharepoint. But Browse for Location button gives me nothing. If I press Save As here, I just get my file system again.

What should I configure on Sharepoint server or in my machine, so that I can save to my doclibrary with as few clicks as possible, just like I always did with my local file system.

Problem with Enable SharePoint 2010 Taxonomy

  
Run from PowerShell: “Enable-SPFeature -Identity 73EF14B1-13A9-416b-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C -Url <http://centaurus>"
It runs fine ... but when I go to the site http://centaurus ... on the list, adding the new field of metadata managed still gives me the same error: not activated the feature taxonomy (ID feature "73EF14B1-13A9-416b-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C").

SharePoint 2010 External Content Type and InfoPath 2010 - Numeric data type fields missing in InfoPa

  

Connected SQL data table to SP 2010 ECT from SQL table.  The SQL table has several fields that have a type of "numeric(3,0)".  The SP 2010 list shows all fields form SQL.  When we open up InfoPath Designer and reference the SP List data (from SQL) all of our numer fields are missing from the available fields list.

I amd going to try another data type but that hardly feels like a solution.  If anyone has any ideas please let me know!

According to the following MS article, the Tags feature is linked to the Managed Metadata Service, which is required to use Tags.

Sharepoint 2010 AD Sync - missing picture from AD to pictureURL

  

Hi all:

I have followed Jie Lie (Technical sharepoint Product Manger) steps in entirety (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/opal/archive/2009/11/19/user-profile-sync-setup-in-sharepoint-server-2010-beta.aspx), my sync with AD is working fine except it is not pulling the pictures in the AD.

Here is my issue, we have photos of all employees stored as domain.xyz.jpg in the custom attribute (emp_pics_2001) with type string, but the picture url type is url (is this the culprit type change), I am using the custom attribute to map the field in the Sharepoint 2010 miis client.

I am using the below url to do the set up: http://goodbadtechnology.blogspot.com/2010/05/setting-up-pictureurl-user-profile.html

i did check the profile db picture url field is NULL, i have all the other values for person except the picture.., I have already wasted more than 2 days in figuring this out

If i just get domain.xyz.jpg pulled to sharepoint, then i can prefix a url in front of it using powershell
I am using a full trusted service account with full permissions to the domain

please help me out..

thank you

Neel
