Sorting My SharePoint Sites list under My Links

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

Is it possible to sort the My SharePoint Sites list (ie, sites that you're a member of, generated dynamically by search) alphabetically? It seems to be listed in order of membership granted.

Just to be clear, I'm speaking of My SharePoint Sites located under My Links in the upper right hand page.

We're running SharePoint 2007 SP2 on Windows 2008 64bit.

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

How might I add a "Phone Call Memo" list to other sharepoint 2010 sites?


The group work site comes with that really nice list using it's custom content type and so on, I'm interested in being able to create that same list onto other sharepoint 2010 sites instead of having to use it only as the default list from that template.


Thank you for your help.

SharePoint Link list: After moving to prod, links still point to dev server


Hi all,

I have to move my dev site at http://localhost/sites/dev/ to the live environment at http://localhost/sites/live/.

On Dev server I have a lot of Link Lists with links pointing within the site.

******* Even if I enter a relative URL in Link lists, they are automatically converted to absolute URLs. I.e. /Lists/Overview will automatically be converted to http://localhost/sites/dev/Lists/Overview. ************

Now when I save site as template and move to to http://localhost/sites/live, the links in link lists still point to the dev server URLs (e.g. http://localhost/sites/dev/some page.aspx).

I read somewhere that saving site as site template and then moving to live server will automatically change links. This obviously doesn't seem to work for me.

Any help will be appreciated on how to migrate so that all links point to live site.

Thanks in advance.

Team sites are small web sites that are created to store everything about a particular thing. For example a site can be created for a department in an organization like human resources. I site can be created for a particular project. A site can even be created for a meeting. Everything about the thing (department, project, meeting) like documents, lists, calendars, etc. is stored in that site.

SharePoint provides some out of the box List Types. Some of the most used ready made list types that SharePoint provides currently are listed below:

But for data manupulation and analysis, Microsoft Excel provides very rich features as compared to SharePoint Lists. That's why people still loves to work on Microsoft Excel Sheets.

Sharepoint My Sharepoint Sites not updating.


The sharepoint My Sharepoint Sites list will not update.  It last updated with the results from 4/22/10. I determined that by looking in out Share Sevices Administration  database in the memberGroup table.  It shows current entries for everything prefaced by Mailto:   So the distribution groups are updating however, nothing is updating for the actual sites.  New sites have been added since this time and Membership in the Members group of these sites has  changed as well but none of these changes have been reflected i nthe My sharepoint sites.   These changes also do not appear in the My Memberships portion of someone's My Site.  Any suggestions?


We are running Sharepoint 2007 SP2 with W.S.S. 3.0 on a Windows srver 2003 R2 SP2 server.    No changes were made to the system on the date in question.  Perhaps 3 new team sites has been added in the days leading up to the problem. 

We see no errors in any of the timer jobs or the event logs that appear related to the issue.

Best Practices for developing accessible web sites in SharePoint 2007


I'm currently busy with an overview of Best Practices for developing accessible web sites in SharePoint 2007. After a little research I have noticed that the challenges I have faced so far are mostly XHTML/CSS/JS related and there are actually very few SharePoint 2007 specific issues: this has to do with the fact that we use very little to none of standard SharePoint controls in the Internet facing web sites we deliver.


As I would like to share the Best Practices I'm writing with the community I've been wondering whether you have tried to develop an accessible web site in SharePoint 2007 yourself and faced any challenges you would like to share. To make myself clear I'm looking for issues and challenges and not solutions in particular (these are welcome as well by the way).

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list


I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.
