My sites in 2007 look and feel

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

On a new server I installed SP2010. For the my sites creation I followed these steps:


But when I navigate to http://mysites, I get the old my sites from 2007 and not from 2010.

Is the site definition for the 'My Site host' is the wrong version in the RTM of 2010?

Best Practices for developing accessible web sites in SharePoint 2007


I'm currently busy with an overview of Best Practices for developing accessible web sites in SharePoint 2007. After a little research I have noticed that the challenges I have faced so far are mostly XHTML/CSS/JS related and there are actually very few SharePoint 2007 specific issues: this has to do with the fact that we use very little to none of standard SharePoint controls in the Internet facing web sites we deliver.


As I would like to share the Best Practices I'm writing with the community I've been wondering whether you have tried to develop an accessible web site in SharePoint 2007 yourself and faced any challenges you would like to share. To make myself clear I'm looking for issues and challenges and not solutions in particular (these are welcome as well by the way).

Moving sites to new 2007 environment

I have a SharePoint environment that is running Sharepoint Server 2007 Trial (oops) on Server 2003 that I want to migrate off of asap.  I have built up a whole new SP environment that is 64-bit and Windows Server 2008 R2 that currently has MOSS 2007 but was built with the intent to upgrade to SharePoint 2010.  The new environment already has all the web applications and site colletions set up with some existing sites that I need to keep.  I have a lot of junk sites on the first environment that I don't want to move, so would like to move only the necessary sites to the new 64-bit environment as opposed to moving the whole database. I tried to back up and attach the content database but ran across issues I believe because of different SQL versions and the 32-bit vs. 64-bit....but admit I don't know much about it and could have done something wrong. What is my best course of action?  I assume move over the necessary sites and then upgrade to 2010?  Or can I upgrade and then move sites without having to pay for a 3rd party tool?  If I move sites before upgrading, what is the best method? I have had some luck with stsadm.exe but only some are successful while others fail.  Thanks!

Seperate out the Document Libraries to individual Sites in MOSS 2007

We are using the MOSS 2007 with SP2. We are having three different Document Libraries for three different projects under same site. We have the requirement to migrate each library to shift to the individual sites. We need to do this with all the content, settings and and the permissions. It's fine to migrate the database and settings individually i.e. content database seperately and site settings seperately. Is anyone have this kind of migration?

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



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?


MOSS 2007 - Propagate changes to multiple sites and lists

We use MOSS 2007 for doc mngmt and maintain individual sites containing lists and libraries for each of our 90+ projects.  All sites are created from a site template and we wish to keep them all identical.  How should I push out changes and updates as business requirements change?  In other words, if we change/update the template, how can I make all the sites and lists look the same?

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).
