Return My Site to it's original design

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
I need to return the My Sites section of my intranet back to the original "out of the box" design that came with the installation. In site actions under "Site Theme" I changed the site to a self-designed theme used on the main site, this theme didn't work (main links/picture omitted) and now can't change back. Under Select a Theme I only get the option I have. The "Reset to site definition" doesnt' bring back the original design and I've tried this in Designer aswell.
The only way I can see of fixing this is re-linking the original default.master and then making my changes.  But where can I get this code?

ASP.net Web Site Administration Tool. An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page a

I have just installed Visual Studio 2010 trial. Previously I have been using Visual Studio Web Developer 2010 Express. Now every time I try to invoke the ASP.net Cofiguration tool either via the icon or through the Project File Menu item, I get the error message "An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page and try again." I am trying to develop a bog standard Silverlight Business Application. There are no other diagnostics. Is there anywhere I can look for more clues or anything else to do to alleviate the problem? or is this something peculiar to the trial version I am using?   I also think it might have something to do with the fact that I have created this Silverlight Business App on a directory on my D: drive and not the normal, default c: drive path and maybe the web sit admin tool is looking somewhere else. Could this have something to do with it? If so what is my remedy?   Help please.....

Multiple Sharepoint site design


Hello All,

My company uses standard license MOSS2007 in our corporate network. There is another network “production” that corporate users do not have access to.

Is that possible? I don’t have a deep knowledge of a SharePoint so forgive my lingo and please provide details when responding.




Not redirect to the original page in cross site authentication



We have multiple web applications(in one machine), we want all those  web applications to be authenticated by a single login page, that is, after logging in, you can visit any page in all those web applications. The login page is placed in a dedicated web application called Membership. The following is the config of the Membership web app.

    <add name="MyMembershipConnString" connectionString="server=.;database=aspnetdb;trusted_connection=true" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>


<membership defaultProvider="MyMembershipProvider">

        connectionStringName="MyMembershipConnString" enablePasswordRetrieval="false"
        enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true" applicationName="MyMembership"
        requiresUniqueEmail="true" passwordFormat="Clear"/>

Is there anyway to know the absolute path for site root i design time?


Hi there,


I have an user control that reads the data from app_data folder and does some processing.

In design time I'd like to show the row data in control placeholder (using GetDesignTimeHtml).

To do that I need to figure out the absolute path to app_data folder on my project.

The HttpContext is not available and HostingEnvironment.MapPath returns null.


Is there anyway to solve the problem?

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas.
