Show wiki page library columns on wiki pages- SharePoint 2010

I created a wiki page library in SharePoint 2010 and added a few columns to the library. However, these columns do not show on the actual wiki pages as they did in SharePoint 2007. I looked through the library settings but didn't find anything to turn on this feature. Does anyone know how to do this or if this feature was even included in SharePoint 2010? Thanks.

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.

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

SharePoint Wiki pages non editable after in place upgrade to SharePoint 2010



We recently upgraded SharePoint 2007 SP2 farm to SharePoint 2010 farm uisng in-place upgrade. The upgrade was successful execept the Wiki pages library pages showing unusal behavior. 

All the content in Wiki pages library under the SP 2007 site were upgraded to Wiki pages library under the same site after upgrade to SP 2010. But the WIKI tool bar is not showing the Edit button on Wiki pages and hence the Wiki content is non editable. 

We did not receive any error or informtaional message in the pre-upgradecheck on prior to upgrade.

I would highly appreciate if some could help get the issue resolved.

Move a wiki library? (Save wiki as template/download wiki page)


Hi all,

I'm using SharePoint Foundation and there is no option to save a wiki library as a template, and the Download a copy control is disabled for the wiki pages. Is this normal? Is there anyway to save a wiki as a template?

Or, is there a different way to move an entire wiki library to a new site collection? The old, easy way was save it as a template and use that template in another site. Am I missing something?

Thanks for your time.

How To Import/Export Wiki Pages from MediaWiki


I'm looking for a way to import a MediaWiki site into a WSS 3.0's Wiki app.

I've found two ways to export wiki data from MediaWiki (the wiki engine used by Wikipedia).  There is the MediaWikiDump (a relatively simple XML format).  And then there's InstaView, which I've customised to export into WSS' Wiki format.  The latter does not offer version history, but that is not a killer problem in my case.

So, now that I have my wiki data exportable, how do I import that into WSS 3.0's Wiki database content?

I've looked for some stored procedures that are specific to the wiki data, but I'm guessing a standardized document-oriented stored-proc is being used instead.

What would you do at this point?  Are there any docs out there regarding the internals of the WSS 3.0 wiki data?  Is the doc-oriented proc (perhaps proc_AddDocument) the right way to go?  Where is the documentation on how to use proc_AddDocument?

This seems like a trivial problem that would be immensely helpful to all those "legacy" wiki-ers out there that want to transition to WSS 3.0 for their team collaboration.

Thanks in advance!

Create exclusive permissions for a Wiki library


Hi All, 

I would like to allow users "contribute" permission - but only for the Wiki pages within a site.  For the other parts of the site these users have only "read" access.  I have de-inherited permissions for the Wiki from the site and now I am seeing the following message:

"Permissions to view and edit files uploaded to wiki pages are controlled by the library the file is uploaded to, not the wiki page library."

What library is this refering to?  Where do I control the permission settings for the Wiki pages?
