Default homepage inadvertent changed

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

Hello all,

We are having an issue with our SharePoint site.  A co-worker was playing around with one of our SharePoint sites and inadvertently changed the homepage to point to a view from a sync'ed list from MS Project.  They said the only thing they did was change the view to be the default view for the List.  Now whenever we click the Home link we are taken to that view instead of the default.aspx.  After playing around with the site I found a solution by deleting the view.  Then the homepage was automatically set to default.aspx. 

The only problem is when we re-created the view, the homepage automatically switched back to the view.  So, I deleted the view again and this time click on the "Make Homepage" link on default.aspx.  However, when I re-created the view the homepage automatically switched back to the view.

I was wondering if there was some setting that I am missing?  Is there something I need to do to default.aspx to make it stop redirecting to the view?


Thanks in advance,

Gerald Howell

Web Site/ Web Application templates seem changed; give me default.aspx only with site.master in VWD


Using Visual Web Developer 2010 Express

I was used to creating a web app anytime and I would get a default page for starters and be happy.  But today I find that when I pick either the ASP.NET Web Site or ASP.NET Web Application templates I get site.master and a bunch of site admin files that I don't want.  Alternately when I select the empty versions of those templates, I get almost nothing at all.  An almost empty web.config page and no Default.aspx page.  There is nothing magical about having a default.aspx page in place, but it is an indicator of a change when I can only get a virtually completely empty website or a website with a bunch of bells and whistles I don't want.

Also, for some reason, when I create a new app or website as just noted, in the Solution Explorer I get aspx.designer.cs files showing as well as web.config files for both debug and release.

Somehow some settings and templates must have changed, or am I missing something here?  How can I get my settings/templates to go back to the way they were?

5 GridView Themes Based on Google's Personalized Homepage (igoogle)

One of the silly features I have found that I like about igoogle is how the pages color palette changes depending upon the time of day. So as the day progresses from morning to afternoon to evening the colors on the page change as well. Like I said, I know this is a silly feature, but I like it. And I have asked around a little bit and seems like other people like it to. To get a better idea of how the colors change, here are the background images from a few of the HTML elements.

Default ASP.NET Architecture

In providing an architectural approach, some assumptions are made concerning the project goals. These assumptions should be used as a litmus test to determine if the described architecture may be an appropriate fit for your ASP.NET application.

Setting default localization



I ever thought that I can set a default localization if the users one (which is set in the browser) isn't available.

I've implemented my localresource files for localization. The start.aspx.resx contains all texts and elements for German use and the start.aspx.en.resx for English users. When I switch the language in the browser settings from German to English everything works fine and the english text is displayed. But when I switch to an other language which is not German or English, it takes defaulty the german resource files.

I've set

UICulture="auto:en-US" Culture="auto:en-US"

as well, but it didn't assume the .en resource file automatically. (For example when I enter the website and switch the browser language to French or Italian it should take the english resource files.)

Thanks and regards,

Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap



I created 2 projects in my solution:

  1. Classic asp.net web service (asmx)
  2. Class library project which references service
  3. web site project which references class library project
  4. Windows app project which references service.

Both projects were created in 3.5 framework and in Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2.

I added web service reference to Class library project. When it asked for namespace I typed "CurrencyProxy". Projects build ok, but when I run web app, Class library throws an error: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.

I believe it has something to do with app.config in Class library project. Here is part from app.config:

<binding name="CurrencyServiceSoap" closeTimeout=

Display homepage node along with child nodes


If the first Sitemap node is your homepage/default and all other nodes are supposed to be children / grandchildren of the first sitemap node in a web.sitemap, how do I set up my web.sitemap to enable me to display my cssFriendlyMenu with the homepage node along with the nodes that are 1 level down from it at the same time as in :

...or is it not possible to have the first sitemap node displayed along with the nodes that are 1 level down from it?  Do I need to have a different starting node rather than my homepage node?

default.browser from asp.net 3.5 to asp.net 4.0


hello, it's me again :-)

a (maybe) stupid question:

in asp.net 3.5 i've this .browser file:


<browser refID="safari1plus">


<adapter controlType="System.Web.UI.WebControls.Menu" adapterType="" />





now i suppose that in asp.net 4.0 this is not useful.

So what i've to do? I've simply to delete "App_Browsers" folder in my converted project or i've to put in this folder:














What's the best way?

Thank  you very much!

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...

    End Sub

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

Default values in SQL syntax / MVC


Hi guys, I have a little problem for which I need a little advice about.

I have a repository function called getList which retrieves certain information that gets posted to it from a form. My form has 6 fields, and a user can enter searvh criteria in any or all the fields. According to what he has entered, I must execute a SQL string to retrieve matching information.

I have the following:

public List<Client> getList(string clientSurname, string clientInitials, string clientName, string clientNumber, string clientReference, int divisionID, int clientStatus, int usrID)


var clientlist = from c in DB.Clients
                             where c.Surname.Contains(clientSurname)
                             && c.FullName.Contains(clientName)
                             && c.Initials.Contains(clientInitials)
                             && c.OldClientNo.Contains(clientNumber)
                             && c.Reference.Contains(clientReference)
                             && c.DivisionID == divisionID
                             && c.Status == clientStatus
                             && division.Contains(c.DivisionID)
                             orderby c.Surname,c.Initials

Personal view reverts back to default after updating properties of item


I am working with a company that has 1 site collection with several sub sites.  I have built 3 document libraries with workflow in 3 different sub sites and all behave as expected.  I have one site where ALL libraries do something perplexing;

If you are in a custom personal view and you go into the properties of a document and then exit (update or not, does not matter) it reverts back to the default view of that library. 

Has anyone seen this?  is there an option when creating an album that could cause this?

thanks in advance for any input on this odd issue.

"Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content"


Our search is not working. The crawl log indicates following error: "Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content, or add a crawl rule to crawl this content. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)".


If I check the event viewer, it indicates following error: "Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'. [CLIENT: <local machine>]"


My default content access account is another one than this NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE account. The content access account password is correct. Apparently this content access account is translated to the NETWORK SERVICE account upon a crawl. And this network service account doesn't has the appropriate rights on database level. How can I fix this?
