Anonymous Access in site template or feature activated by the site template, is it possible?

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hello!

I'm building a custom site template and my question is if it's possible to set the anonymous access level in the deployment action.

I tried to create an EventReceiver (FeatureActivated), but I doesn't change the anonymous access level at deploy time. If I deactivate and reativate the feature from the site it works, but I miss the point, because like this it's the same thing then going to Site Permission and change the permission from there.

I do not want to set Anonymous Access from the Site Administration every time.

Tanks,
Nicola.

feature stapling done against site definition breaks when saving site as a template?

  
Hi, we have a bunch of feature stapling done against some of our site definitions on a solution we are working on. This feature staple has a bunch of feature dependancies which all work in a variety of ways. One of these dependancies then uses a feature receiver class to do some post provisioning setting up of web part connections and the like. This all works very well when creating a new site from a site definition etc etc. The problem arises when a user opts to provision a site in this way, and then uses the 'save as template' function within sharepoint. (BTW this is WSS 3.0 / MOSS). The site template saves correctly, but now the feature receiver never runs. I'm assuming this is because the associated feature staple doesnt run either? I've looked around and seen some reference to feature stapling not working against templates. Is this true? 

Site template uploaded to Solution Gallery, activated, not showing in Template Selection

  
I accidentally created a site on a path where I needed to create a site collection. After deleting the site and creating the site collection in its place, I arrived at the Template Selection page. I went to Solution Gallery, uploaded my solution (a package made by the consultants who built our SharePoint site) and activated it. When I activated it I got an error message, but the solution shows in the Gallery as active. I went back to Template Selection to select a template from the solution, but none are showing--just the standard templates. How do I fix this?

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.

 

Thanks.

Using List templates - saved template has no site definition id or feature id - does not appear in S

  
I have a Record Centre site in SharePoint Server 2010 and have created a number of record libraries. Due to a reorganisation, I need to split my main record library up into about 20 separate libraries, so decided to use the list template as a means to create the new libraries with the same content types, views and workflows.

Used one of my libraries with no content and did Library Settings - Save document library as template and gave a name. Seemed to save OK to the List template gallery.

When I go to Site Actions - More Options the new template does not appear

Have done a fair bit of searching and I think the problem is that the .stp does not seem to have any site definition id and no means to add one.

Have enabled the SharePoint Server Publishing feature at the site level, as suggested by another post, but still has not resolved the problem.

Would value any ideas or insight. Thanks

Why do the aks master pages not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collecti

  
Hi

I installed AKS 2.0 and activated AKS feature. The problem I found was the aks master pages do not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collection. why is so?

example: If i activate the feature on http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> and apply the master page, I dont see any changes.

              But if i activate the same aks feature on http://<servername/ then everything started working on all sites.

              The reason i found is the CSS reference in the aks master pages.

              It reference should be given as follows:

                 for http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> ->  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

                 for http://<servername>/ -><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

So my question is, am i missing anything? am i supposed to activate the AKS feature on top level site collection at any cost? if yes, why is so? 

And after applying aks master pages, i see differnece in font sizes. Why the font size is getting changed?

workflows when saving site as template with content

  
I have have a MOSS 2007 site on a production server with custom workflows.  I saved the site as a template with content and used the template to create a sibling site.  I am testing it and the workflows aren't working.  Is this to be expected? I have read that workflow don't work when saving between development and production, but I can't find anything that addresses both sites being on production. Will I need to recreate the custom workflows by hand? 

Is there a way to update the template of a site?

  

I am looking for a best practice for managing and applying site design changes.

For instance, in another platform, I could release a site for testing or production use, so content would be added.  At some later date, a change* to the design would be needed and I would take a copy of the design only, make the change and then apply the updated design to the existing site. Content would be maintained but the new design changes would be applied. 

      *A change might mean creating new functionality on an existing element, adding new elements or changing an existing element.

How best should this be done in WSS?

Thank you in advance!


Navigation settings not applied when site created from template?

  
Hi, I created a customized site on MOSS 12.0.0.6529 and disabled Quick Launch and enabled Tree View on it. But when I create new site from this template it has Quick Launch enabled and Tree View disabled. I downloaded the STP file and looked inside and in the details <Details> ... <EnableTreeView>1</EnableTreeView> <EnableQuickLaunch>0</EnableQuickLaunch> ... </Details> Does anyone have a clue why it does not work correctly? Does this work for you correctly?

Publishing site template saved using /_layouts/savetmpl.aspx

  
A trick we used in MOSS 2007 doesn't seem to work in SharePoint 2010 although it seemed to work for someone who asked the same question in this forum.  We know publishing site do not have the "Save as site template" as an option in the site settings so we used <site>/_layouts/savetmpl.aspx to save the site template.  Unfortunately, new site created using the saved template is throwing a 404 error.  And the site was actually created (can see in View All Site Content).  We need to be able to easily create sub-sites with the same look and feel and set of document libraries/lists.  Any advice?

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
