Is it possible by tweaking some OOB features,or customization is required?

Issue with Picture Library Slideshow Web Part after export/import of site collection (SP2010)


I recently exported/imported an SP2010 site collection from Dev to Prod. The site collection had about 90 sites, which were all driven from a site template. Once the export/import had taken place, I created an additional 15 sites (in Prod), using the original site template that was created in the Dev environment. Everything seemed to be working just fine, but I found an issue with the Picture Library Slideshow Web Parts (PLSWP) on all the sites that were created in Prod. Basically, I have a Picture Library, and any pictures added to this library show up in the PLSWP. The original 80 site's PLSWP works fine, but the new 15 sites will not show the pictures through the PLSWP (the viewer just shows up blank). Here is the difference in the html output of the picture viewer:

 PLSWP from Dev:

sharepoint security groups, ACL of site collection or subsite need to move in to sql server 2008 usi


HI Team,

After getting the data in to sql server we should be able to update the users from sql server itself which should reflect in sharepoint sites.

Creating My Site collection on new web app causes web part errors


I'm configuring a brand new SharePoint 2010 Enterprise instance for the first time.  We have 2 WFE, 1 app server and 1 DB server.  Having read it is best practice, I created a new web application for My Sites.  I chose to use the same IIS site and IP address as the main SharePoint site collection but a different host header (my.sharepoint).  The problem I've come against is that opening http://my.sharepoint from any location except the application server throws a bunch of web part errors.  (Web Part Error: This page has encountered a critical error. Contact your system administrator if this problem persists.)  However, when I open the site from the application server box, I don't get the errors.  I think the problem has to do with the WFEs.  I'm seeing a bunch of DCOM errors on the WFEs complaining about security but I don't know if that is related or how to change the security of the DCOM components, the buttons are greyed out.

Can anybody help me start trouble shooting this? 

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

Garbage Collection-Part 2: Automatic Memory Management in the Microsoft .NET Framework


The first part of this two-part article explained how the garbage collection algorithm works, how resources can clean up properly when the garbage collector decides to free a resource's memory, and how to force an object to clean up when it is freed. The conclusion of this series explains strong and weak object references that help to manage memory for large objects, as well as object generations and how they improve performance. In addition, the use of methods and properties for controlling garbage collection, resources for monitoring collection performance, and garbage collection for multithreaded applications are covered.

Site Collection Usage Summary: No Data Available


Usage analysis processing is enable for my farm in both Central Administration and in the SSP.

I've checked TImer Job Status and the three timer jobs responsible for doing the log analsis are all running.

I've also checked the log file locations and the log files are being generated.

Yet when I browse the "Site collection usage summary" report (SpUsageSite.aspx) I get the following:

No data is available for this report. Usage analysis might have been enabled only recently, or there might have been insufficient usage to result in any values for the report.

My farm is running 2007 Enterprise SP2 (

Can someone confirm if this issue was fixed with one of the CU's that were issues post-SP2?

Site Collection Usage Report Include Outlook?


Hi all,

Does anyone know if the Site Collection Usage Report includes activity that occurs from Outlook? For example, if a user contributes to a discussion board without ever physically touching the site or if the user just reads list content from Outlook, is this included?

ANY help at all is greatly appreciated.


Portal Search Work - Site Collection Search Does Not


In our SharePoint installation we have an SSP which indexes local office sharepoint server sites.  However there is a problem, although we can do portal searches which reveal search results it is not able to do local searches at the site collection level and as a result we are presented with the typical error below.


No results matching your search were found.

  1. Check your spelling. Are the words in your query spelled correctly?
  2. Try using synonyms. Maybe what you're looking for uses slightly different words.
  3. Make your search more general. Try more general terms in place of specific ones.
  4. Try your search in a different scope. Different scopes can have different results.

I am unsure as to why this strange event is occuring.  We do not have the WSS Search component running in the MOSS environment as the SSP service should be able to index and server search queries at the portal and local site collection level.


Any thoughts to this?

Only crawl one site collection

Hi We have an intranet with about 100 site collections. How can I set up one of those to be in a separate content source that can be crawled more often? Do I need to make two content sources with one containing the other 99 site collections with the setting "Crawl only the SharePoint Site of each start address" and the other one containg my prioritized site collection with the same setting? I also would like to ask if the crawl rules have any effect on in which order the content is crawled. If I put a certain site to be included with order 1 will that site always be crawled first? //Niclas
