Global Navigation across Site Collections

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
MOSS 2007 Global Navigation across Site Collections I have couple of questions. a) Is there an easy way to share a global navigation between site collections? b) Portal has the navigation tabs (tab1..n). User doesn't have access to all the tabs, may have access to one or more tabs. Each tab represents a site collection. Is there a way to display the only tabs to which the users have access? If we can develop using SDK, please provide some hints.   Thanks,

Top Global Navigation across site collections(?)

Hi, My understanding at the conference was that SharePoint 2010 closed the gap in navigation in that 2010 could see across site collections thus allowing for you to have visibility of those site collections in your global navigation.  However, I can't seem to locate this feature. Does anyone know how you can configure your global navigation to span across site collections? Thank you for your comments, Tim

how to hide root site node in top/global navigation in sharepoint 2010

how to hide root site node in top/global navigation in sharepoint 2010? I tried to use below provider but it sharepoint asp menu still shows root site as first item. We would like to show only subsites on top nav bar which is Out of box. <asp:SiteMapDataSource      ShowStartingNode="False"      SiteMapProvider="SPNavigationProvider"      id="topSiteMap"      runat="server"      StartingNodeUrl="sid:1002"/>

List all site collections in Top Navigation



I am planning to show all of the site collections in the Top Navigation menu of the root site collection. The purpose is to easily access all the site collections from the home page and also have the MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels > 1 so that the users will have the ability to go to the child sites in any given site collection from the home page. I have set the MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels=2 in the root site collection master page but it only displays sites inside that sitecollection only. Also I have added links in root stecollection to the other site collections manually by going to sitesettings->Navigation->add link but I do not get the dynamic menu for the sitecollections. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am using MOSS 2007 Standard Edition.

Thanks in advance!


Go Global: Designing Your ASP-based Web Site to Support Globalization


If you have a Web site for your business, you already have an international presence. But how can you make sure users in any country can access your site effectively? The Trigeminal Software site at http://www.trigeminal.com has pages localized into up to 48 languages and allows users to see pages in the language of their choice. This article describes how the site was implemented and how issues such as whether the site should use frames and what character set to choose for multibyte languages were dealt with. Which database to use for storing dynamic content, whether to use static or dynamic pages, and how to implement localized solutions on both Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 is also discussed.

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.

How to deploy dashboards made in dashboard designer to diferent site collections?

Hi I just migrated from sharepoint 2007 to 2010. We used to have performance point dashboards spread across libraries in subsites all across our primary site collection "Http://server:x" after I migrated I understand that I must migrate all performance point content to a new site or site collection made with the business intellingence template. I created a new site collection with this template (Http://server:x/sites/pps) and succesfully migrated all performance point content. Now I want to redeploy all the dashboards to their respective subsites in the  "Http://server:x" site collection so that everything looks exactly as it did when we where using SharePoint 2007. But when I try to deploy to a site I only get the option to deploy it to the ("Http://server:x/sites/pps") site collection and its respective libraries. I wish to manage all dashboard content centralized in (Http://server:x/sites/pps) but I want to deploy dashboards to libraries across  "Http://server:x" is this posible or how is Performance Point services supossed to work?   I also having trouble with DashBoard designer. I have everthing running on a Virtual Machine test enviroment. With windows server 2008 r2, 4 gb ram. Everything installed in one machine. And Suddently DashBoard Designer Crashes In the event log I get the error Dashboa

Sharepoint site collections accessible only by system account

I I have setup a VM to start palying with SP development, everything running under administrator (sql, sharepoint services....). After succefully creating the root on port 80 and a couple of site collections, whenever I shoot IE http://mymoss or any othe site collection, I go right away to the web site without the usual authentification dialog box. On the right jand side, I see I am logged in as "System account". When I try to "sign in as a different user", enter domain\administrator, who is owner, the dialog box just keeps coming back and I can not log. . Thanks in advance

Custom Site navigation using StaticSiteMapProvider

Hi. I have created a custom sitemap provider component by inheriting from StaticSiteMapProvider. As per my requirement, I have a custom list at the Root Site that stores the navigation information. In my custom provider, I implemented BuildSiteMap() in such a way that it uses my custom list to create SiteMapModes. I just followed the technique mentioned http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.staticsitemapprovider.aspx Now the issue is, I want to recreate the site map each time an item is added to my custom list (where I store navigation information). I don't want BuildSiteMap() method to be executed completely every time a page request arrives because it uses SharePoint object model to access the list data and this will affect the performance. As mentioned in the article, within BuildSitemap() method, I am checking whether site map is created already and if yes I am skipping the call to SharPoint list items. But with that approach, it looks like the site map is created with first request to the site and for all other requests, it is being served from the cache (or persistant storage). Right now I have to use IISRESET to get my site map recreated after adding an item to the List. I have following questions regarding the StaticSiteMapProvider Once created, where is the site map stored? How I can reset or clear already created site
