Can't see all content in a collection

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I have a site collection in which I am the collection administrator.  I want to see all content in the collection so tried /_layouts/sitemanger.aspx.  I got a file not found error message.  I don't understand this as I can use this approach in other site collections just fine.


There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

Attach site collection data from content databases

  
I have migrated my Sharepoint from a stand-alone installation to a server farm installation by following this article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262325%28office.12%29.aspx Every step was completed successfully, except for the last one (4): Install Office SharePoint Server 2007 on a new farm Move databases from the stand-alone server to the server farm Create and attach data from the Shared Services Provider (SSP) Attach site collection data from content databases Whenever I try using the stsadm -o extendvs I get the following message: The IIS Web Site you have selected is in use by SharePoint.  You must select another port or hostname.   The following is the command: STSADM.EXE -o extendvs -url http://dms01 -ownerlogin group\dms -owneremail dms@xxx.com -exclusivelyusentlm -databaseserver jagrb -databasename WSS_Content -apcreatenew -apidname DMS -apidtype configurableid -apidlogin group\dms -apidpwd xxxx   So far, all my efforts to Attach the site collection data from the content databases have failed. Any ideas?

External Content Type - Read List Operation - "Cannot find a collection element of a supported type.

  

I'm trying to define External Content Type Operations for an External Content Type. I can add a Connection, Type "WCF Service" no problem. And I can define a "New Read Item Operation" using that connection.

But I can't define a "Read List Operation". I get the following error message, in the Return Parameter Configuration: "Cannot find a collection element of a supported type..." it goes on to say - see the help documentation for supported types. I can't find any help documentation on this.

I've tried returning different types in the provider web service but keep getting the same error. What are the supported types the web service can return?

The reading I've done suggests that you can connect to a non-MS web service using a connection type of "WCF Service". Is this correct? If it is what's the best soap format the web service provider should use - Doc/Literal?

Thanks,

Glen

Since the Quick Launch menu is not part of the home page of a site collection, how do I gain access to the View All Site Content list?

Delete a Site Collection without a Content database

  

I have a site collection whose content database has been deleted with no backup. Now I want to delete the site collection and i get what seems to be a sql login error. I know the account I am using has enough access to the sql server (used this account to install sharepoint). I am guessing it is complaining because it can't find the database.

Remove-SPSite : Cannot open database "WSS_Content_Database" requested by the lo
gin. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'DOMAIN\PowerfulAccount'.
At line:1 char:14

   SPCmdletRemoveSite) [Remove-SPSite], SqlException

I used the Remove-SPSite <URL of site to delete> command.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Berney

How to Specify Content Database for a Site Collection Restore from Backup

  
Hello,

I have prepared code that first creates a new Content Database within a specified Web Application, then restores a Site Collection backup to that same Web Application.  Unfortunately, the Restore doesn't provide an option to select the Content Database that was just created.  So, is there something that I might do to ensure that the Site Collection gets restored to the Content Database of my choice, programmatically?  If not, is there something I can do to change the Content Database for the newly restored Site Collection?  All ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Doug

Wss v 3 site collection - can't add /change /edit any content

  

Hi guys,

I have noticed a very strange thing in my wss v 3 site. Since a few days Nobody can add / modify / delete contents of site. Site actions button give only Site settings options, Not like before edit page etc, View all site content does not show Create button. Any document library or list does not shpow anything but Actions button.  It is clearly a lost permission issue, however  when I checked and rechecked all of those are correct. I'm even login as an administrator which is listed as site collection admin and nothing. STSADM.EXE" -o backup -url let me do a backup however option restore give access denied HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED). Of course I'm running as site collection admin. Where to look for answers ?


Reset site collection content types

  

Hi,

I have a "Test Document" content type inheriting from the default "Document" content type which, in turn, inherits from "Item". The "Test Document" is a MS Word template document (as is "Document").

I went into the "Site Settings" of the site collection, selected "Site content types" -> "Document" -> "Advanced Settings" and while the "Update all content types inheriting from this type" was set to Yes, I clicked OK.

Now when I go back to the documents library and open the "New" menu to create a new document, both the "Document" and the "Test Document" logos are changed to plain icons (not the MS Word icons it had before) and when I click it I get the "Upload Document" dialog.

Is there a way to restore the site collection's content types to their default settings?

 

Thank you,

Sagy

Creating Site Collection in Existing Content Database

  
Hi All,

I'm trying to create a site collection in a existing content database. I haven't found a method in Sharepoint object model to perform such a action. There is an option to create a site collection in a new database using the following command:
                                                                
SPSiteCollection.Add(url, siteDescription, siteDescription, 1033, siteTemplate,
                                                                siteCollPrimaryAdmin.LoginName, siteCollPrimaryAdmin.Name, siteCollPrimaryAdmin.Email,
                                                                siteCollSecondaryAdmin.LoginName, siteCollSecondaryAdmin.Name, siteCollSecondaryAdmin.Email,
                                                                strSQLServerName, siteContentDBName, null, null);

Is there a different object to do this creation on existing database? Any ideas to approach this problem will be greatly appreciated

Thanks,

Formview's control collection empty when placed inside an AJAX accordian content pane.

  

Hi,

The following problem occurs:

I have an accordian content pane on my page holding a formview. At code behind I can iterate the control collection of the content pane using FindControl and find the actual formview control. However it seems that when a formview is placed inside an accordian pane the formview itself looses it's control collection items.

 

So my problem is at codebehind I can get the FormView control, but it's control collection is empty, when placed inside an accordian content pane.

Using recursive find control function also doesn't help since there are no more items.


SharePoint Tutorial - Content Types

  
SharePoint content types provide users with a way to manage and organize content in a more meaningful way. It's a reusable of settings you want to apply to a particular type of document in a library or item in a list.

Enabling Users to Maintain SharePoint Content

  
When SharePoint is installed as a corporate intranet, there is a considerable amount of effort involved in maintaining the content to keep the site relevant. As we discussed in the first few parts of this series, SharePoint has many built-in features to reduce the burden on the site administrator.

Some areas of the site usually contain less-dynamic information. Internal memos and corporate policies are common examples of this information. One option for this information is to post these documents in a document library. Documents in a library are often stored in a few different formats: Word, Acrobat (PDF), or HTML. Each of these formats has its drawbacks.

Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

  
SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.
