After a new SharePoint 2010 setup with langpack, how to set the default languge of the initial site?

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

Hi all,

I am new to the SharePoint world, I’ve just installed SharePoint Server 2010 and right after the installation I also installed my local language pack.

When I first connect to the server with a browser I automatically get to the http://servername/_layouts/templatepick.aspx to create my very first site on the server.

The thing is that on this initial page there is no option to select the default language of your very first site it will be English, afterwards of course you can set the Alternate language in site settings.

And because of this, users who want to view the page in their local language, they have to change the display language at the top right user menu the first time they open this first site.

This is only cosmetics I know, but is there a way to set the default language of this very first site you create? Else if you want to give users a site where they get their local language by default you have to create a new site and can not use this initial site.

Thanks for every comments you may have.

Best regards,

Thomas

Problem Saving Files to A Sharepoint 2010 Site from Office 2010: Saves locally by default rather tha

  
Hi we are starting to use sharepoint 2010 / word 2010 and have found an interesting bug/problem. Sometimes when a user tries to save a file (by clicking on the save button in the quick access toolbar for word 2010) the save dialog comes up with the users local "Documents" folder as the path (not the correct sharepoint path where the document should be saved).  (I should say that we are creating the file from sharepoint by using a toolbar on the document library, with the new button)  We are using a content type and a template attached to the document library when we create the file.  This is really annoying because the user might not notice that the document is saving locally and not to sharepoint.  I have found a strange workaround which involves clicking the [File] tab on the ribbon in word 2010, then clicking "Save and Send" and then clicking the save button again.  At this point word 2010 seems to "remember" that it is trying to save document to sharepoint and shows the sharepoint document library. This is a real nuisance which could lead to documents being lost/misfiled if people don't realize that this is happening.  Can anyone help me? Thanks Kevin krd

Purpose of initial "site" in SharePoint Server 2010 Express Install

  
I’m installing Search Server 2010 Express using “Farm” mode. After the SharePoint Configuration Wizard completes, and selecting  the SharePoint config wizard, one needs to create a website. What is that site intended for? Is it for the Search Center itself? (If so, then I better select the Enterprise – “Basic Search Center" template. If it is intended for a "normal" top level site, then I will create a new Search site in its own web app). TIA, Barkingdog  

SharePoint initial site hierarchy setup question

  

Hello, I thought this question would be a setup/configuration/operation question, any thoughts or advices will be greatly appreciated!!

So we would like to stand up couple of team sites (3-4 total) for these different programs, on our enterprise SharePoint environment which is MOSS 2007. Usually

what happens with our enterprise SP is that we request a SP site by filling out a form and they just give us a site collection with Site Owner level permissions.

What would be the reasons I would want to have all these sites under a Site collection named "Programs" and have each sites as sub-sites VS. have 4 different site

collections for each of the programs? 

I understand it depends on the situation, and I thought it would be better if we would have separate site collections...please correct me if i'm wrong.

These programs are unrelated so there would be no need for a centralized navigation with a top-level page, no need for a search across all 4 program sites, and we

would actually like to have these in separate contentDBs to do backups. So I thought it would be best to just have these as separate site collections, and just

have like a link to different site collections in case users want to go to other program sites... I just couldn't think of any reasons to have

SharePoint 2010 Migration - Site Definition (default.aspx ignored)

  
We have attached a 2007 content db to a 2010 instance of SharePoint and now...the site is not using the default.aspx that is in the file system.

In fact, I am not sure which default.aspx page it is using.  I had expected that after the migration it would be using the site definition default.aspx and the customMasterpage which is located in the site definition.

I have confirmed via the database that it is using the appropriate site definition (web template and configuration id) however it seems to be using some other default.aspx and it is ignoring the custom master page designation in the onet.xml file.

Any ideas on what is going on here?

Is there a site page default.master in SharePoint Server 2010??

  

Hi,

I inserted a few lines of code on the wkpstd.aspx template to "show" the document library properties on each wiki page within each wiki page library. This is working fine, except that the property Document ID
is showing up on site pages as well.  I checked Moss 2007 and I foumd that there is a bpcf.aspx default page that is used to create a basic page. Is there a separate template or master page for the site pages within 2010 that i can modify?

Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sharepoint 2010 Multi-Tenancy Access Denied on Tenant Administration Site

  
Hi, I am currently implementing a Sharepoint 2010 Multi-Tenancy solution. Multi-tenancy is the partitioning of service applications in 2010 to allow data to be separated between web applications or site collections. I am using multi-tenancy to separate data and user profiles between site collections hosted on a single web application. I have partitioned the User Profile Service Application and Proxy using Windows Powershell. The paritioned Proxy Application is then associated with the single web application. I am also using the Sharepoint Foundation Subscription Service Application to subscribe to different site collections within the web application. In this way data and user profiles can be separated. However, the tenant administration site, used to manage each collection, does not allow administrator access to manage the User Profile Service. I receive a standard Sharepoint 'Access Denied' error message. No other errors or details are provided. I have tried assigning different accounts to the tenant administration site but the error still appears. The issue arises when I issue the following SPSite Powershell cmdlet: NEW-SPSite -Owneralias DOMAIN\Username -Secondaryowneralias DOMAIN\Username. The attributes provided in the Cmdlet above are used to assign tenant site administrators however, the accounts cannot access the User Profile Service. Any ideas or recommendati

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
