Can we have "Content and structure" feature within My Site sites?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hi everybody,

The "Site Settings > Site Administration > Content and structure" feature is quite usefull to move list / document library items preserving meta-data, history etc.

I did not found this feature within "My Site" parent site or subsites. It seems to be only available in "Collaboration Portal" site!

Is there a way to activate this feature for "My Site" sites?

Thanks,

Regards,

Why do the aks master pages not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collecti

  
Hi

I installed AKS 2.0 and activated AKS feature. The problem I found was the aks master pages do not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collection. why is so?

example: If i activate the feature on http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> and apply the master page, I dont see any changes.

              But if i activate the same aks feature on http://<servername/ then everything started working on all sites.

              The reason i found is the CSS reference in the aks master pages.

              It reference should be given as follows:

                 for http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> ->  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

                 for http://<servername>/ -><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

So my question is, am i missing anything? am i supposed to activate the AKS feature on top level site collection at any cost? if yes, why is so? 

And after applying aks master pages, i see differnece in font sizes. Why the font size is getting changed?

Why feature with event receiver doesn't activate properly after site provisioning?

  

Hi!

I have defined feature with event receivers for my document library and for users List .

I try to activate my feature in onet.xml in section <WebFeatures>. After provisioning a new site from onet.xml  all work fine and my feature is shown as activated, but event receivers doesn't fire. It fires only after reactivating my feature (deactivate, then activate it again). But I need my feature works immediately after site provisioning without deactivating and activating it again. Who knows how to solve this problem?

Site variations Releative url is not updated in other language sites

  
  I have a site called “en-us” and I need to create 3+ variations of it for different countries. When I create the variation all relative links with in the content stay the same. For example /en-us/Products/.. does not change to: en-CH/products/… it stays the same. I was under the impression that variations would automatically update all relative links and URL’s within the site. Is that true? is there any other way to update the relative url. please let me know Any help and response would be greatly appreciated. muthu

feature stapling done against site definition breaks when saving site as a template?

  
Hi, we have a bunch of feature stapling done against some of our site definitions on a solution we are working on. This feature staple has a bunch of feature dependancies which all work in a variety of ways. One of these dependancies then uses a feature receiver class to do some post provisioning setting up of web part connections and the like. This all works very well when creating a new site from a site definition etc etc. The problem arises when a user opts to provision a site in this way, and then uses the 'save as template' function within sharepoint. (BTW this is WSS 3.0 / MOSS). The site template saves correctly, but now the feature receiver never runs. I'm assuming this is because the associated feature staple doesnt run either? I've looked around and seen some reference to feature stapling not working against templates. Is this true? 

Retract custom master page feature and all site pages stop working

  
There is a requirement to apply custom branding on personal sites in a SP 2010 project. For this I have created a feature which uploads and applies the custom master page on creation of any new personal sites.   I have stapled this feature (using feature stapling concept) to the “SPSPERS” (personal site) site definition. The custom master page is displayed on the creation of new personal sites. On feature deactivation, I am looping through all the personal sites (as the feature is deployed on a team site) and pointing the master URL back to v4.master. But when I retract the solution and browse to the personal site, I am getting a “404 File not found” error.  But am able to view the settings page by typing the URL.   I activated the publishing features and looked at the master page applied to the personal site. It was pointing to v4.master.   Any help on this is appreciated. Regards, Neha

Running code after site definition site creation in a event receiver or feature receiver

  
Hi guys I've got a site definition which is pretty much based on STS.This is it's own sharepoint project. Let's call this project SiteDefProj. Next in another SharePoint project (same solution though). Let's call this CustomListProject. In this project I've got a feature which provisions a bunch of lists based on custom content types - this feature is a site scoped. Let's call this feature: CustomListInstances. I have added a feature receiver to this feature to execute some custom code on the lists themselves (under feature activated) In my ONET.XML (part of the SiteDefProj) I have CustomListInstances feature ID as part of my <sitefeatures>. When I do a create site I can actually step through the code and see it actually being executed but after the site is created the list instances are created but it's like the code never run or did anything. The weird part is that stepping through the code while creating a site collection using my SiteDefProj the code runs great with no errors. All lists are there and the code runs smooth. If I manually create a STS site and activate my feature everything works and the code does actually run and the effects are visible after the feature is created. Again I can actually step through it in debug. My suspicion is that there's some sort of a race condition in the CREATE SITE functionality where maybe the web or site collection hol

Site Collection Reporting Feature?

  
Hi I'm wondering if anyone knows or has seen Microsoft documentation on what activating the "Reporting" feature within the Site Collection Features page will do?  The reason I ask is I thought that activating it at the site collection level was required in order to use site collection usage and site usage reports.  That's what MS's site says here:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262541(office.12).aspx  However I have one farm where those usage reports are available, but this site collection feature has not been activated.  Usage logging was enabled through CA for the farm and usage reporting was enabled through CA for the SSP). This is a MOSS 2007 environment.  

Feature with wsp for creating specific groups on any site creation

  
hi, i need to create a sharepoint feature for wss 3.0 with .wsp (wsp for easy deployment) which do folowing funtionality: Ability to run some custom code for creating specific custom groups on every site creation. Feature needs to be activated when deployed so when user create new site it creates groups based on our custom code( i have custom code for creating gorups just need to know how to attached it to feature which works on every site creation event) Any workable example is very helpful for me because i am very confuse and already did reasearch on that. i guess feature stapling is not the solution in my case.

Host-named site collections and content deployment jobs (SharePoint 2007 Internet facing Web Sites)

  

Hi.

I have an editing web application with multiple site collections (only accessible internally on a dedicated port), and I've one public facing web application (on port 80). Now I want to create several host-named site collections in the public facing web application (to limit the number of web apps in the farm), and then use content deployment jobs to push the content from the site collections on the editing web app into these host-named site collections.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
Do you see any issues?

Regards,
Frode
