We turned on the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature on our MOSS 2007 (after we already had sites created) to allow users to be able to use features like excel services and reporting which both require this be activated the Publishing
feature to be turned on, In order to do this you have to activate the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature at I beleive the top level site, however when we activate this feature it changes the templates and navigation
for all the existing SharePoint sites in our collection.
Is there a way to turn this feature on with out impacting existing site sites? Or am I doing something wrong that is causing this to happen? Basically I need to know how I can activate this option (Office SharePoint Server
Publishing Infrastructure) to just specific sites but not all or turn it on so it does not impact all sites?
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).
our sharepoint server needs to be restarted twice a day now - always around 9.30am and 14.30pm. this has only started in the last 2 weeks. its working along fine then all of a sudden it goes to a dead page.
i have spent the last week trying to identify what it is. i have set the logging to verbose and put plenty of the messages in there into google but can not see anything relevant. the event viewer shows nothing.
i have sp2 installed but no cumalitve updates. i am wary of installing these at the mo and wreaking the whole thing. if noone has any suggestions ill install them. ill list soem details about the problem below.
it doesnt happen on weekends so it must have something to do with users using the system so im thinking something to do with the database (SQL Server 2000). NB users dont use our sp2007 on weekends.
if i restart iis, the layout of the page comes back but some of the webparts are dead so that doesnt work.
if i resart sql server, that doesnt work either.
there is plenty of room on drives and the task manager is at 20-30% when i check it when the site is down.
only a server resart seems to work.
there are just so many messages in the sp logs that i cant identify what it could be. is there any other loggi
