Allow a person to edit a single page in the pages folder.

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Is it possible to set edit permissions on one page in the Pages folder for a single person.  We are able to set contributor on the page, but the user is still not able to edit the page properly.  If we set contributor on the Pages folder, the user can edit any page in the folder.  We want to have the user only edit a single page in the folder.


We are using MOSS 2007 with Publishing feature turned on (of course).

Cannot edit pages based on custom page layout


Hi guys!

I have created a site definition that applies a the publishing features and a feature containing some publishing page layouts before it creates some publishing pages based on these layouts.

My problem is that once I create a site based on this definition the resulting publishing pages are not editable. Also in the site definition one of the pages have a webpart added to one of the layouts containers that it should be based on, but when I try to open the page in the browser I get the error: "One or more Web Parts on this page references a zone that doesn't exist".

It appears that either my layouts or publishing page declarations are incorrect, but I cannot for the life of me figure out where. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been googling this problem for well over a week now :S


The module part of my site definition:

<Module Name="Homepage" Url="$Resources:cmscore,L

Is it possible to add the drop down edit menu that appears from a single page to the page edit toolb


I am running Sharepoint 2007 and wondered if it is possible to add the "edit" drop down menu that appears from a single page—the one that contains edit properties, check out, publish a major version, etc—into the page edit toolbar, which is the one that contains the page, workflows, and tools drop downs.  I found the article that provided the code to add a "links" menu and quick buttons, but didn't know if it was possible to add the edit menu or, if so, what code would be necessary.

The reason I want to add it is for page creators to be able to access that menu's options without having to first navigate back to the pages library.

Thanks in advance!

Cannot access pages using /_layouts//.aspx



I have a development server on which we have implemented a number of application pages. We can access these using the url format:

Cannot access pages using http:/<site>/_layouts/<folder>/<page>.aspx

This also works for subsites:

Cannot access pages using http:/<site>/<subsite>/_layouts/<folder>/<page>.aspx


Now I am trying to implement these pages on our production server and I am getting file does not exist errors. Any thoughts on why this might be?

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!

Master Pages: Master Your Site Design with Visual Inheritance and Page Templates


Master pages in ASP.NET 2.0 solve a problem many Web developers have been solving on their own with a variety of techniques for years - providing a single master template for an entire site. This article covers the details of master pages, discussing their usage and implementation and how they are a natural evolution of custom techniques developers are using today.

How to create a single entry page for site collections in MOSS 2007



I have  7 site collections containing a few hundred team collaboration sites. Some users are internal (intranet) but most are external (extranet). Extranet users are experiencing problems with losing links to their sites and forgetting which URLs to use. So I would like to create a single entry page that all users can enter after the logon process, which shows a list of sites they have permission to access, and other user-specific information. Perhaps relevant documents, tasks, recently modified documents etc.

I know this sounds like a 'My Site' but we want to use use a general welcome page instead. We use Windows authentication.
What is the best way of doing this and is it something that can be done in SharePoing Designer or does it need to be done in Visual Studio?

Many thanks in advance.

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?


Changing folder name loses Person attributes


I have a custom folder content type. These folders have several attributes including text fields, choice, dates, and person lookups from AD. When I change the folder name, the folder will keep its date, choice and text box attributes, but lose the person attributes. If I change it back to its old name then it regains the person attributes. The ID is stays the same. One of the person fields is a required field, but that it still saves as an empty field. If anyone has a work around or even a suggestion as to what might be causing this it would help a lot.

you do not have permission to do this operation. Whenever I try to edit a page in sharepoint designe


Hi There,

I keep getting the error message "you do not have permission to do this operation" in  sharepoint designer 2007 (WSS 3.0), whenever I try to edit a page in Sharepoint Designer.

I am a farm admin, site collection admin and site admin, after the error message I can click OK and enter the Administrator password which has the same priviliges as me and it thinks about it for 5 minutes then returns the same error, eventually after several hours it will allow me to save changes but it's about a 1 in 20 chance.

As it does save sometimes it would appear to me that somehow it is losing the connection or temporarily losing the credentials. Does anybody have a clue where I can start to find out a solution to this problem. I get the feeling that something is corrupted somewhere but I don't what to look for and where.

Any help, tips, ideas gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.


Programmatically Hide Master Pages from Site Master Page Settings page?



I know there is a field you can check when you edit the properties of a Master Page in the Master Page Gallery to set a Master Page to hidden but ... can anyone think of a way to programmatically hide specific Master Pages from the Site Master Page Settings page?

Maybe this should be two questions:

  1. How do I programmatically access a Master Page in a Master Page Gallery?
  2. Is there a property that can be set that will hide the page from the Site Master Page Settings page?

Web Part working fine on the top-level page but 'Not Safe' error on lower-level pages.


I have created a Web Part which reads and parses the SharePoint logs in order to display usage information of the page it resides on.  The Web Part works perfectly on the top page, reading and displaying the information desired.  However, once the Web Part is added to any page lower in the site heirarchy (sub-page) the same Web Part throws the following error:

Web Part Error: A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Page cannot be displayed or imported. The type could not be found or it is not registered as safe.

Of course the current version of the Web Part is in the SafeControls list on the web.config.

The Web Part was originally designed to return site activity only for the top default.aspx page and worked fine but started to fail in the manner described above once I added the following line of code to return a SPCo

Single-page restore/recover in an online database

I am working with SQL Server 2008 64-bit (10.0.2531) on Windows Server Datacenter 2008 SP2 (64-bit). The problems I am having almost certainly stem from my lack of understanding of how SQL Server's transaction log is handled during recoveries. I am using this document as a rough guide. Here' what I am doing: 1. I intentionally corrupt a single data page in a normal table, so that I can practice single-page recovery. 2. I attempt to read the corrupt block in SQL. As expected I receive an error. 1> select top 10 firstname from ds2.dbo.customers 2> go Msg 824, Level 24, State 2, Server IP-0AF647E0, Line 1 SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: incorrect pageid (expected 4:896; actual 3:0). It occurred during a read of page (4:896) in database ID 5 at offset 0x00000000700000 in file 'C:\sql\dbfiles\cust1.ndf'. Additional messages in the SQL Server error log or system event log may provide more detail. 3. I take a log tail backup before I do anything to try to fix the corruption: 1> backup log ds2 to disk = 'c:\sqlbackup\ds2.bak' with norecovery 2> go Processed 5 pages for database 'ds2', file 'ds_log' on file 1. BACKUP LOG successfully processed 5 pages in 0.041 seconds (0.857 MB/sec). 4. I  restore the corrupt page from backup: 1> restore database ds2 page='4:896' 2> from disk='c:\sqlbackup\ds2.bak' 3> with norecovery 4&
