How to provision a WIKI site as a sub site in a custom Site definition?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

Hi all,

I have a custom Site definition which is made up of team Site Template(STS). In that I have populated lists and content types according to my requirement. Now I need to provision a WIKI site as a sub site in that Definition. I have used Provision data attribute of Configuration element in webtemp file and defined structure for it. But my site is not being created. The same approach is working with default Publishing sites provided by MOSS 2007(Publishing and collaboration Portals). I suspect that Publishing feature needs to be activated in my template before using provisioning attribute. Is that true. If yes please throw some light on that process. if no, guide me through the next possible solution.

Thanks,

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?

Creating a new root Site Collection using a custom site definition file (ONET.XML)

  
Using Powershell, I am trying to deploy the our custom solution to SP 2010.  The script is doing the following: Deleting the web application using Remove-SPWebApplication Creating a new web application using New-SPWebApplication Adding and deploying a series of WSP files (one of which has the site definition file in it) using Add-SPSolution and Install-SPSolution Create a root site collection based on the site definition file provided in the WSPs using New-SPSite I get the error "WARNING: Template is not found and is not applied." When I run Get-SPWebTemplate, my site definition does not show up. I saw this: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010general/thread/5ea46e07-a4b0-4bab-b698-9b6eeb695607 but I want a solution that does not involve me reloading a DLL, as, I feel there is something else I am forgetting. I have also tried: IISReset Resetting the timer service Cleaning the Cache (as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939308) Nothing seems to work.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Deploying custom 2007 site definition to 2010

  
For a customer I am upgrading their SharePoint 2007 enviroment to SharePoint 2010. After a succesfull upgrade I am stuck with one last annoying problem: when creating a publishing site collection using a custom definition the provisioning of the site definition  fails. Interesting about this is that the provisioning works from the central admin UI, but this customer has an custom webpart for creating site collections in a web application outside of Central administration. The simplified code for this is: public static bool Create(SPWebApplication webApp, string Url, string siteTitle, string siteDescription, uint lcid, string siteTemplate, string ownerLogin, string ownerName, string ownerEmail)         { SPSite site = null; try { SPSite newSiteCollection = webApp.Sites.Add(Url, siteTitle, siteDescription, lcid, siteTemplate, ownerLogin, ownerName, ownerEmail); newSiteCollection.Close(); newSiteCollection.Dispose(); site = GetRootSite(webApp); bool r = (site != null) ? true : false; return r; } catch { return false; } finally { if (site != null) site.Dispose(); }         } The exception is thrown when webApp.Sites.Add() is executed. The user we are logged in as, as wel the appID, are Farm Admin's. The ULS shows this exception: Exception thrown while fetching field by internal name 'Wiki_x0020_Page_x0020

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

All,

If one has created a custom site definition in sharepoint 2007, Once the whole site is migrated to sharePoint 2010 will that "custom site definition" created in 2007 will work without breaking in SharePoint 2010?

If No, what has to be done to make it work on 2010.

Thanks,

Custom site definition with embeded master page

  

Hello All,
I am creating a custom site definition, which is based on STS site definition ( so my site is also a team site, just with the difference of name ). For that I have created a SharePoint 2010 site definition project in VS 2010. It works fine.

Now what I want to do is to create a custom master for this site definition. And I want to keep this master page in same project.  Can someone tell me how to do it ?

Note : I am adding a module to this project ( which adds a feature to the project, when there was no module, there was no feature in the project ). Next I am referring that feature in one.xml file under configuration->site feature node. I do not want to have a feature, I want it to be part of site definition. But can I embed in such way that every time a site is created based on my site definition, master page also get deployed to root site of site collection

Deploying custom 2007 site definition to 2010

Adding custom list to site definition

  

Hello All:

First I will explain what I was trying to achieve.

I wanted to create a site definition or site template with some common features e.g. document library with custom columns and then create many sub sites using that template or site definition.

But the idea is that once all the sites have been created and up and running, if it is required in future to modify the document library to either add or remove some columns then I will simply modify the template/site definition and then apply it globally and all the sites will get updated automatically which were created using that template/definition.

I discovered that I can not get it done using site templates as they are just snap shot of sites and any modifcation can only be applied to new sites created based on template not the ones which were already created.

So, if I go with Site Definition option, what is the best way to do it. Create a custom document library and then create list template based on that and then add it on site definition ?

Or create a feature and do it via code in feature activation.?

Or perhaps there is another better way to do it?

Any help is appreciated

Merci

Best method for creating a site definition containing a custom list instance

  

Hi,

I want to create a new site definition which, when provisioned, includes an instance of a custom list. The custom list definition is contained in a feature as part of the site definition project. What's the best method for creating an instance of this custom list?

I can think of a few ways to do it:

- Modify the onet.xml for my site definition to include an instance of the list

- Use feature stapling to enable my custom list defintion feature when a site is provisioned using my new site definition and include a list instance in the feature.

Is there another more suitable method?

Thanks,

Rob
