Can't create new pages in Enterprise Wiki

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I create a new Enterprise Wiki in any of our 4 site collections, I can edit the home page, create lists or libraries from the homepage, but I can only add pages with the farm admin account. I don't have this issue with any site, library, or list within the site collections. I've given certain users and groups Full Control permission on both the wiki site and specifically on the pages library, but no user can create pages from there. From the main page of the wiki, choosing Site Actions> NewPage and entering the page title and create results in an "Access Denied" and says to sign in as another user. If I go to the Pages Library> Choose New Document and choose any of the options (e.g., Enterprise Wiki Page) I get an "Access Denied" message. If I go to that library and choose "Check Permissions" and enter my username (or any of the other usernames I've given access to this site) I see I have Full Control and the others have design.

Create a Page Layout for Enterprise Wiki with content

I need to create a Page Layout that for an Enterprise Wiki Page that already has content in the Rich Text HTML Field so when people go in to create a new page based off of the Page Layout they can go in and just replace the text with their own. Can this be done?

Issues with Enterprise Wiki Sites unavailable when create Intranet Team Site


I have created Enterprise Wiki Sites and have created an Extranet Team Site and was able to create an Enterprise Wiki Site as well with it but for some reason I do not have the ability or option to create an Enterprise Wiki Site or even page when I have a Team Site on an Intranet.  I have turned on all of the publishing features but the only wiki item available to me is the wiki library.  

I'm assuming I must have to activate or deactivate some other feature but I have no idea which one.

Custom tree view for navigating wiki pages

I'm creating an information resource on our intranet (WSS 3.0) using the wiki style format.  The only trick is, unlike a standard wiki, where all pages are directly under the parent, I want to be able to create a customizable tree view where some pages are nested underneath each other.  For example, this particular site talks about all of our different IT systems.  I'll have a wiki page for each system, then underneath each of those pages, there will be more pages for things like training, documentation, etc.  Even though all those pages are at the same level, I need to be able to nest them in a navigational tree view on the quick launch bar.  I suppose if there were also a way to nest the wiki pages themselves, I could just use the pre-packaged tree view.  Anyone have any ideas?

publicly publish some data from wiki pages


We have internal sharepoint site for the staffs which also has wiki pages. We want that wiki pages as public; publish some data from wiki pages.

To do this, one of my friend suggest me to do this:

"For exposing stuff publicly from SharePoint, you can do it using the SOAP interface from SharePoint and using .NET to make an app to read it. "

I'm just beginner of the sharepoint and I'm unable to follow his suggestion. This is not the easy step. 

Is anybody has some thoughts, ideas and some samples, if possible that would be great ?

I really appreciated. Thanks in advance.


Unable to move Wiki pages with Bracketed ([[, ]]) Links


I'm using Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 (pre-SP1) to host a Wiki, and it's been a learning process as I've been going along.  In this process, I keep finding better places to keep Wiki Pages and Wiki Libraries, so I move things around to find the best fit.  I've run into a strange problem while moving my collection of ~100 Wiki pages, and I'm curious to see if others have it to.  The problem is, I cannot move or copy Wiki Pages that contain links to other Wiki pages using the bracket method (of writing a link as [[other page]]).

Here's how I reach the problem:

-Create 2 Wiki Pages Libraries,  I called mine Wiki PagesA and Wiki PagesB
-I go into my Wiki PagesA library and create a new Wiki page.
-I call it "linktohome" and enter only a single line in the body, "[[home]]"
-I can open it up and it works just fine and the link redirects me to the Home page in the local Wiki PagesA library so it's all good.
-Next in my main Site Collection that's hosting these libraries, I'll pull down Site Actions and go into Manage Content and Structure.
-I can browse into Wiki PagesA and the linktohome document appears
-But, when I try to copy (or move) linktohome to Wiki PagesB library I get an error that says:

Sharepoint 2007 - Wiki site - New Pages Not Inheriting Custom Master Page


I am working on a SP site (MOSS not WSS) which is heavily customised away from the OOTB layout. I need to create a Wiki site, which was going well - I've created a master page which displays the miniconsole (this was not visible with our customised layout), and made it the default master page for the site. This has been applied to the two standard pages that come with the Wiki site, however when a new page is created, it seems to inherit the default.master, rather than my custom master page - thus not showing the miniconsole.

When I have created a new page, I am able to use SharePoint Designer to attach my custom master page to it, which works perfectly, however this will not be a viable option going forward as end-users create their new wiki pages.

How can I get the new pages to inherit my master page when they are created?

How to change the order of Webparts in Sharepoint 2010 wiki pages

How do I add categories to Wiki pages?

I have sharepoint 2010 and I need to add categories to my wiki pages. The problem is that the category field is greyed out and clicking the tags icon next to it does nothing (nothing opens, no error messages). I know this is looked after by the managed metadata and I have access to this and I can add/create/remove terms and groups. But for the life of me, I can't get the categories to open up and be usable. And I can't find any info on troubleshooting this. Can anyone help? I could be doing something stupid so forgive me if this is a dumb question.

How to set create-only permissions to publishing pages library?

I have publishing site where users can add their own pages to some libraries. I have problem with permissions when user creates new page. Here's how I set permissions: all users are added to members group (by default they can view pages) members group has view permissions also for master pages library For site where users can add pages I set the following permissions on pages library users can add view pages users can add pages When user adds new page then he/she gets automatically edit permissions for this page. So users can edit only their own pages. I found out that add permission is not enough - when user creates page then he/she gets access denied error. The minun that doesn't cause problems is approver permission to pages library (of course, now users can do everything on pages library they ever want to do). Is there any way to avoid making users as approvers?  They only need view and add permissions for page library and view and edit permissions for pages they added. They cannot do anything more. Approving and denying of pages is administrators job. With best regards, Gunnar Peipman   Also visit my ASP.NET and SharePoint blog!

Migrating 2007 Wiki to 2010, many pages are now uneditable. help?

We've recently applied to upgrade to 2010 on our SharePoint site.  We've noticed though, that most of the pages in our wiki library no longer allow web-editing in the browser.  I assume this is because some of the code in these pages was 'custom'.  In SharePoint Designer, the pages that do not allow editing have this message under Customization Status:

This file has custom page markup.

The pages that are editable have this message:

This file is based on a file from the site's definition.

Is there any easy way to convert the old pages into proper site definition, editable pages?  I've tried selecting the message at the top of each problem page that reads: The current page has been customized from its template. Revert to template.

but this only ends up with an error message when trying to revert:


Cannot revert to the site definition version of this file. It is a c
