the site default page issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi All,

I have set the site default page is default.aspx and set that page allowed without user authentication

if we call http://www.mydomain.com/default.aspx, it is working without authentication

but if we are calling without filename (http://www.mydomain.com) , it is redirected to

the problem is, if we are calling without filename (http://www.mydomain.com), it should not redirect to login.aspx page

because the default.aspx page is not accecpted as the domain default page.

Notes : I have converted asp.net 2.0 to asp.net 4.0 web application. after conversion conly  this problem arises

Can't inherit default page layout on a publishing site?

  Hi,   Implementing SharePoint for the first time.   We've got a page layout that we want to use as a default. We've got it set as the default in the top site in the site collection. However, when I create a Publishing Site with Workflow, it doesn't default to using the right layout, despite the fact the sub-site's Site Settings / Page Layouts show that it it set to inherit the default page layout from its parent.   Oddly, when I create another type of site, e.g. a Blank Site, it does inherit the default layout.   Any suggestions?   :|Ben      

Request is redirected to default Web-Service page (possible cookie issue)


I have a strange problem on my web-service application:
 - when I am initating a web-service request from my client app, no matter if I am using IIS or ASP.NET development server, I'm getting the folowing exception:


System.ServiceModel.ProtocolException: The content type text/html; charset=utf-8 of the response message does not match the content type of the binding (text/xml; charset=utf-8).

SP Foundation 2010 not displaying my default site page...



I'm new to Sharepoint and have successfully installed Sharepoint Foundation 2010 on a Windows 7 x64 machine using the instructions on MSDN (instructions are fantastic; by the way).  However, when i completed executing psconfigui.exe (Sharepoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard) my default site was not displayed as mentioned in the setup instructions.

Instead I got a webpage cannot be found (HTTP 404) error.  The URL displayed was "http://kweeks-dell"; which doesn't seem right to me.

I was able to run the Central Administration console and display various admin tasks; however, when i tried to create a new site (i.e. "http://kweeks-dell:10178/MyFirstSite"), I get an error message "URL Name contains illegal character ':'".  Where 10178 is part of the URL of the admin site.

I'm really confused cuz i don't see any problems with my installation but yet i cannot get a site setup that i can start work with.

Anyone, I'd appreciate any help I can get.

Is there a site page default.master in SharePoint Server 2010??



I inserted a few lines of code on the wkpstd.aspx template to "show" the document library properties on each wiki page within each wiki page library. This is working fine, except that the property Document ID
is showing up on site pages as well.  I checked Moss 2007 and I foumd that there is a bpcf.aspx default page that is used to create a basic page. Is there a separate template or master page for the site pages within 2010 that i can modify?

Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thanks.


Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Login page for whole site


Hi all,


I've been searching and trying to get this now for hours, so i though i'd come here.

For my website, there will be an admin site. I want to create users in my website database, i have a logins table with a hashed password column. The problem i have is making sure that every request if not already logged in send the user to the login page.


I have a page Login.aspx which i have created, but if i enter http://website/admin/news.aspx it bypasses the login screen and shows the page!!


Does anyone know how i can do this? i have created Login.aspx myself and verified that the username and password enetered are correct.




How to solve concurrent site issue


Hi All,

I have developed a ASP.NET2.0 web site with SQL 2000 backend and number users to site is approx. 5-10.

I have developed one Administration page which controls user roles to access this site; onclick of Update button in admin page the role gets updated into the system. I have written simple query in the code to update the user roles into database; Ajax implemented in admin page;

Issue: If 2-3 users tries to update the admin roles; latest update reflected in the database and same displayed in the admin page;

I am looking for a solution to solve this problem by application code change since i dont have flexible to change the database end; if one users update the system, it should not allow other users to perform any operation; please let me know if any standard approach can be implemented with minor code change.

Thanks in Advance,

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.


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.
