No longer have the ability to move webparts to different zones on the default "team site" template

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I noticed today that one of the default site templates that i most widely use in sharepoint 2007 -the "Team Site" template when used in sharepoint 2010 i can no longer move webparts on the main home page from one zone to another from the browser in sharepoint 2010, or specify where they should be when creating them.   I am able to do this if i create a blank site, but that would also involve creating all the neccesary document libraries and  other team site lists.  I suppose as a last resort i could make my own template off of the blank site template that is similar to the team site template. but i am curious as to why this has been setup this way, or if anyone else has noticed this behavior

Accounts in Default Template


Hi,  I'm trying to learn in the VS 2010 Express. Using the default template for ASP.Net Website. It starts the web application with an accounts folder. I'm trying to extend the "registration" or "AddUser" utilities. What I'd like to do is modify the registration by adding additional elements (i.e., address, city, ST, zip, etc.). I know I can open the database and modify the Users table and also modify the stored procedure for CreateUser.

My question is:  I don't see any reference in the page code (here's a reprint of the register.aspx.vb) that calls the procedure, or even passes in the variables from the textbox entries from the page. I must be missing something. Can someone clue me how to drill into this template to find the elements like how it communicates with the database. There are a few JQuery files. I am not yet very familiar with JQuery. Is that where I need to look? Thanks for any advice...

Public Class Register
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        RegisterUser.ContinueDestinationPageUrl = Request.QueryString("ReturnUrl")
    End Sub

    Protected Sub RegisterUser_CreatedUser(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles RegisterUser.CreatedUser

Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.

Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor

Missing default SharePoint Webparts


Hi all,

I've just performed an upgrade on a SharePoint 2007 Content Database, the log says the following default sharepoint webparts are missing. This problem wasn't encountered when I set up the dev and test farms, just my luck it had to occur when doing prod. Seems to be the same problem experienced in this post http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010setup/thread/ec1d9cc0-b244-49c6-b107-8f837d4130bc. As suggested I did the Mount-SPContentDatabase command from the WFE but that obviously didn't work. Any know whats going on?

Please install any feature/solution which contains this web part.

Move a wiki library? (Save wiki as template/download wiki page)


Hi all,

I'm using SharePoint Foundation and there is no option to save a wiki library as a template, and the Download a copy control is disabled for the wiki pages. Is this normal? Is there anyway to save a wiki as a template?

Or, is there a different way to move an entire wiki library to a new site collection? The old, easy way was save it as a template and use that template in another site. Am I missing something?

Thanks for your time.

Activating Publishing Feature for Team Site Template in SharePoint 2010


A new site collection has been created and uses SharePoint 2010 team site template. How can you activate the publishing feature on it?


I have activated the publishing feature at site collection and site level but I still can edit pages etc without requiring check out and approval/publishing. There are probably settings I need to activate on other doc libraries but I wanted to know the best practice for this scenario and how to configure it.
