My Site and Search Results Link back to Homesite

Hi, Just abouit finished my Sharepioint2010 portal and now cleaning up a few odds 'n' ends. If I click on My Site or People Search the resulting pages don;t allow you to 'Browse' back to the top level page of the Sharepoint site (ie. the Intranet Homepage). Although all my sub-sites have a 'Home' button aswell as the default S/Point home button on the top menu bar, MySite doesn't and I can't seem to add it. Any ideas ? Seems crazy that people can go into the MySite, navigate around but then have to type the server web address back into the Address bar to return from whence theyu came ! Cheers Ian

Is it possible to remove the link 'SharePoint Designer Settings' from the Site Collection Administration section of settings page.

Search Drop Down Box - remove "This Site:"


In our Search Drop Down box, we define search scopes that appear in the list.  (i.e. All sites, custom document libraries, business data catalogs, etc...)


However, for some reason it automatically includes an item for every site/sub-site that says "This site: <sitename>".  I don't want that in there, because when a user selects that, it will take them to the ossSearchResults.aspx page instead of our custom search center.


So how do I prevent it from adding that item to the list?





Remove #Region from whole web site


Hi All,

I need to deliver source code to client and my boss need to remove all the comments and #region sections from the whole web site source code.

So is there any functionality available in visual studio 2010 or may be in an other 3rd party tool available to do so, which can remove all the #region from all over the source code ?

Otherwise my developers has to do donkey work.... :(( and I don't wish it. 

Any help or tips/tricks would be appreciated.

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.


Top-Level Search Scope not showing in Sub-Site


I've got a site 'B' created under site 'A' in SharePoint. When I'm at Site A, I can search and find things that exist in both A&B. However, when I'm in B, the 'highest' search scope I can pick is 'B.' I'd like to be able to select one step higher so that I can search A&B from any page. Is this possible?

Search Usage Reports Missing for Site


We have Usage Analysis enabled on our employee portal farm.  The SSP in this farm crawls all local SharePoint sites and one child farm.  When we view search and query reports, one of the site collections (in a dedicated web app) is missing.  All other web apps/site collections appear in the search/query reports.  The missing site collection is using the standard search pages and web parts - no customization with the object model that might break usage logging.

Has anyone else ran into this or know the solution?

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

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?

Problem using an action to link to a report in another site

Hi ! I'm using SSRS 2008 with WSS 3.0 (integrated mode) and I want, from a report in a site A, to link to a report in a site B. I'm using the full path to the report and when I paste it in a browser, it correctly shows the report. When I click on the link of the action in the report from site A, a report (having the same name) from site A is displayed instead... Any help would be appreciated Thanks Paul

Advanced People Search

Hi All, I'm having a problem with the Advanced People seach webpart, one of the fields under 'Search Options' is Memberships. I have updated it inline with this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935196, which now brings back results when searching by using a distribution list name, but I'm still getting no results when searching by a Site Name (as displayed under in the "Memberships" webpart on a mysite) Also is there a way to change the word "Memberships" in the webpart, to something like "Site Memberships"
