Does SharePoint support the Full Width Asterisk within urls?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
The Full Width Asterisk (U+FF0A) can be entered for folder names in document libraries and file names.  Yet when you attempt to open files with this character, or files in a folder with this character, the url does not resolve. I have tried all of these, but none work. http://server/Shared%20Documents/%EF%BC%8A/Test%20Document.txt http://server/Shared%20Documents/%uFF0A/Test%20Document.txt http://server/Shared%20Documents/*/Test%20Document.txt

Duplicate URLs in Source Parameter of Query String for All SharePoint Lists

After performing a database attach method of upgrading our existing web application from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010, all of our lists that migrated now exhibit an interesting but undesirable behavior.  The DispForm.aspx and EditForm.aspx pages that get loaded are given the Source parameter of the query string but instead of the URL being a single entry like: Source=http://sharepointsite.domain.com/Pages/Default.aspx It winds up putting the URL twice like this: Source=http://sharepointsite.domain.com/Pages/Default.aspx,http://sharepointsite.domain.com/Pages/Default.aspx Naturally this makes processing of the form -- either by choosing OK or Cancel buttons -- result in an HTTP 404 error.  The question we're left with is how in the world did the Source parameter get set that way to begin with.   It wasn't that way in 2007. We had thought that perhaps there was something that didn't migrate over correctly for the existing lists, so I tried creating a new list and then added a new item to the list.  So far so good.  Then attempted to Edit Properties or Edit Item or even View Item, etc. -- essentially triggering the load of the EditForm.aspx and DispForm.aspx  -- and we received the 404 again.  At this point we're not sure what's going on or how to fix it.  We've performed the migration three times so far with t

Setting SharePoint site URLs


I'm just getting started with SharePoint Foundation 2010 (and ASP.NET as well).  When I go my newly created site at http://machine, the URL is automatically redirected to http://machine/SitePages/Home.aspx.  Could someone explain how this happens?  I don't see a corresponding SitePages\Home.aspx physical path, IIS virtual directories or settings, etc.

How would one change such a URL?  Apparently it's supposed to be under Central Administration->Site Setttings->Look and Feel, but it's playing Waldo on my system.

Thanks for any help.
