Can only edit a page in a Wiki site in raw HTML

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
A particular user can logon to SharePoint 2007 companyweb site Wiki and create a new page. However, when he tries to edit the page (or any page) it opens up the editor in raw HTML only. He cannot get the wysiwyg (rich text?) editor. He is using IE7 but the same happens in all browsers. Any ideas?? 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?

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

Unable to edit a wiki page

Few users who have the full control permissions inherited from the top site are able to create a wiki site (as expected), but when they try to edit the wiki content on the page of the newly created site, they get a permission error (unexpected).  Not all users have this problem.  Another user who belong to  the same people group is able to edit the page without any problem (wierd).  Given below is the error message You are not authorized to view this page You do not have permission to view this directory or page due to the access control list (ACL) that is configured for this resource on the Web server Please try the following: Contact the web administrator if you believe you should be able to  view this directory or page.   Unfortunately, I am that web admin.  No clue what could be wrong.  Please advise. We are using MOSS 2007 single server installation on windows 2003 server SP2 enterprise edition with SQL server 2005 as back-end. Authentication Type: Windows IIS Authentication setting: integrated Windows authentication - NTLM Anonymous access - disabled. Thanks.

I am a Site Administrator, but I do not see Site Settings or Edit Page menu from Site Actions

Hi, I have been using MOSS for over 2 years, but I have not even heard or seen this kind of situation. I am a Site Administrator, but I do not see Site Settings or Edit Page menu from Site Actions menu, and I typed in http://mysitecollection:portnumber/_layouts/settings.aspx to go to setting page manually and looked around there. I confirmed that I am the site administrator, but when I go to Advanced Permissions, I do not see any checkbox beside each users. So basically, I am a Site Administrator on the site, but I am really NOT! What is going on here!?

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Re-positioning an HTML container with javascript onresize with a Master page.


I have an HTML <div> container that I float to the right of a gridview.  When the browser window is maximized, it looks fine.  When minimized, the gridview positions below the floating container and most of the data is pushed off the bottom of the browser - you have to scroll down to see it.

If I position the floating container above the gridview it looks fine in a minimized window, but looks real bad when maximized.

What I want to do is use a javascript: onresize event to re-position the floating container up or down depending on the window.inner.width AND do it with a Master/Content page structure AND do it for only the one page where needed.

I can capture the onresize event and display the window dimensions but haven't figured-out how to do it with a Content page that still uses the Master page.  I think I'm having a very "thick" week...

Detecting Edit or Insert Page


I am coding a .cs file that handles the metadata for a particular table. I am putting a custom validation that allows me to update or insert only if the PubMedID is not already in the database. This would be easy except that the PMID should also be allowed to be null as some of the references in the database were not from PubMed. So i perform a query on the database to see if there is already an identical PMID in the database. This works great when using Insert. However, when using Edit, it does not. The PMID is already in the database because the one currently being edited has the same PMID!!! So I know exactly how to change my query etc. However, I do not know how to tell from inside this Edit/Insert agnostic page, which one it is being called from. Thanks for your help!

Login page for whole site


Hi all,


I've been searching and trying to get this now for hours, so i though i'd come here.

For my website, there will be an admin site. I want to create users in my website database, i have a logins table with a hashed password column. The problem i have is making sure that every request if not already logged in send the user to the login page.


I have a page Login.aspx which i have created, but if i enter http://website/admin/news.aspx it bypasses the login screen and shows the page!!


Does anyone know how i can do this? i have created Login.aspx myself and verified that the username and password enetered are correct.

how to add a wiki page as a web part


Hi All,

I have created a feature that generates a page and adds a content editor web part, links web part (using elements.xml). Everything works fine but I would like to replace content editor web part with a wiki page that I am going to create.

For example, I copied an excerpt from elements.xml file that adds a content editor web part for the page.

<Module Path="Dependencies/Pages" Url="">
  <File Url="default.aspx" Type="Ghostable">
   <!-- Add the Rich Content Text Editor web part -->
   <AllUsersWebPart WebPartZoneID="Right" WebPartOrder="1">
          <WebPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2" xmlns:iwp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2/ContentEditor">
            <Assembly>Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c</Assembly>
            <Title>Executive Summary</Title>

 Can someone tell me how I can add a wiki page using manifest (elements.xml) file or some other way?
