Searching a wiki in Sharepoint 3

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

I have recently moved a wiki site into sharepoint by the simple process of copy and paste text from pages into the sharepoint editor. Search however, cannot find even page titles let alone content. I have gone into advanced settings and enabled 'Allow items from this document library to appear in search results?' but get no results.

What am I missing? Any suggestions appreciated!

Sharepoint Wiki Custom Workflow


Has anyone done custom workflows for a sharepoint Wiki page? 

The workflow I'm trying to do is, whenever a new wiki page is created I want a new Discussion page  to be created for that wiki page?

Any Help?

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?


SharePoint Wiki HowTo Template



was wondering if anyone has or has suggestion on the following:

we are contemplating creating a wiki type howto for our users which needs to be categoriesed into permission level (eg user, super user, admin).

We would quite like to have the ability to add content, and then link the relevent catories to it (done via a lookup at moment).

And relevent video (e.g embeded you tube).


The video part I am thinking of a library with a field type that allows embed (do you know of any?).  On the wiki page I quite like it if the video would show rather an having to navigate to them, but doubt this is possible.


I know wiki can't have a uniformed template due to the way they are produced and web parts have to be added manually.  Does this mean are idea would maybe be better as a publishing site with a custom template?

RSS and Wiki SharePoint 2010

Does anyone know if SharePoint 2010 has an out-of-the-box option to subscribe RSS feeds on Wiki pages???

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.

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

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

In WSS you change the order of webparts just by moving them above or below another webpart. This does not work any longer in SP 2010. I want to move a list webpart above another list webpart. How can I do it [SP2010 Foundation].

Sharepoint 2010 Fast Search - Searching Document set

We have a sharepoint 2010 Fast server. We are planning to use document sets to store documents with common metadata.(Previously were using zips in moss 2007). Now, the requirement is we need to return only  document sets even if the search results contain multiple documents within that document set. ie, if we searched for a keyword that was specific to a document within the document set, the search results should return the document set and not the individual documents. Please help!!! Thanks in advance      

Multi-User Editing on Sharepoint Wiki


I have created a Wiki library for an internal sharepoint site, and have the problem that if multiple people are editing the same version of the wiki page, then one of them will lose their edits when they try to submit them.  I have since required a check-out of the wiki page prior to editing, which the dialog asks for when you click on edit.  However, for the check-in process, the user seems to have to go to the library and select the check-in from the drop-down.  I would prefer that this be asked when the user tries to commit their changes, so they do not need to navigate into the library.  Any decent way to work through this?

We're running all 2007 versions of our software here, if that is of any concern.

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.



How Do You Print a SharePoint Wiki

It appears as though there is no way to print all at once the pages in a SharePoint Wiki.  Is this correct?  Do you have to print them one at a time?  If this is the case, does anyone know of any Shareware that would help with this issue?  Thanks.

Upgrade/Migrate MOSS 2007 Wiki to SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Wiki


We've been running MOSS 2007 for a few years now and have built up a Wiki.


I am now investigating the migration to SharePoint 2010, I've used the database attach method to copy across our Intranet site collection to a development SharePoint 2010 install (this includes our Wiki).


This works except for an error under the "Recent Changes" heading and the new 2010 Enterprise Wiki features are not available.


What I'm trying to find out is if there is a way to either upgrade the Wiki sub-site or migrate the Wiki data into a new 2010 Wiki sub-site that I can swap for the live one.


I've tried to just copy the items from the "Wiki Pages" list of the imported sub-site to the "Pages" list of a new 2010 Wiki sub-site, but they then just appear as "ASP.Net pages" and don't display the Wiki content.

I've also tried a couple of the commercial migration tools but these also just seem to copy the aspx files and leave them not viewable.


Thanks in advance


How to create SharePoint BDC connector for searching custom repository


I am researching how to make a custom respository searchable in SharePoint 2010. I read through documentation on BDC, including Todd Baginski's blog post on .Net Assembly Connector, and get the big picture, but I am missing a lot of details. I wonder if anyone can share their experience and idea.

The custom repository has 3 elements: file (Office document, PDF etc) on the file system, custom metadata and custom ACL in an Oracle database. The requirement is to search the file and its metadata as a signle document and trim the search result using the custom ACL.

The possible approach I have come up so far:

1. Develop BDC .Net assembly connector to index the custom metadata and ACL as an enternal entity, treat the file as an attachment.

2. Develop BDC custom connector to index all 3 elements at once. Possibly starts with indexing the files first and enrich the content stream with metadata and ACL from the database

Would any of these approach work? Any sample code to add file/file stream as attachment? What is the best way to incorporate custom ACL into search?

Any helps and suggestions are appriciated.


Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise Wiki - TOC, Table of Content - Displaying only headers for individual pag


I am currently trying to build a wiki for our users in Sharepoint 2010, but there is one particular item I just can't get right. The table of content...

I am aware of the web part TOC, but this one can't be configured to display headers for an individual page only. Instead it insist on displaying all my navigation links, for all my sites, which is quite unnecessary since they are already displayed in the navigation pane to the left.

Is there a way to create a TOC as you see on any other normal wiki page, so it would end up looking similar to my example below?

[SITE Header Example]

1. Header

1.1 Subject 1

1.2 Subject 2


2. Header 2

2.1 Subject 3 and so on...


Then the TOC should be placed in top and look similar to this.


1. Header

1.1 Subject 1

1.2 Subject 2

2. Header 2

2.1 Subject 3


Can this be done, or would it require any 3rd party plugins?

I'm a bit baffled that the build in web part isn't more configurable, since I would have guessed that MS actually would have looked at other wiki pages to see how it is done, before adding their own templates? But maybe I am missing the obvious
