We have many custom asp.net applications which need user management (login, authentication, lost password, add or delete users, update profile etc.), logging (actions, search logs, connection problems etc.), content approval and content upload.
Each application is duplicating the above functionality and I want to get rid of the duplicated effort.
My question is:
Can I create 1 custom asp.net application which will use the WSS at the back end to handle most of the above? So basically I will create a web user interface and use the sharepoint sdk and database to do the aforementioned.
Or do you have some other suggestion?
Artificial Intelligence is no match for Human Stupidity.
1. SharePoint is compatible with the ASP.NET MembershipProvider, which is where *most* of the user functionality you seek lies.
2. SharePoint has lists and document libraries which you could leverage for the content functionality you mentioned.
Do take note of some of the strengths and weaknesses of sharepoint though - even if you plan to use the "free" version.
I am new to sharepoint and trying to setup development environment. I have installed windows server 2003. As WSS is embeded in Windows Server 2003 R2 which is not my case as i only have Windows Server 2003 SP2. What should i need to do to setup WSS 3.0? Simply downloading and installing WSS 3.0 will do the job?
Currently i am working on Asp.net and want to learn sharepoint.
while searching on google i didnt find the Right way to start Learning Sharepoint.
Please Guide me for the same.
should i go with the Sharepoint Admin or Sharepoint Developer?
i know i will take time but i dont know the right direction to start learning sharepoint.
i want a way to start sharepoint from basic to advanced.i am very new to sharepoint and when i surf on google, the infomation i found really is really confusing.
I am trying to use PortalSiteMapProvider to create a tree view Site Map, however, secruity trimming is limiting the results. If you access the page anonymously or with permissions to a grandchild site only, the tree does not build because the provider is empty. I have tried using RunWithElevatedPrivileges with no success. Everything I read about SiteMap providers say the bey default do not use security trimming unless you set the flag to true in the web config. I have verified it is not set.
I am open to all suggestions to include a completlydifferent solution for a treeview sitemap.
I am including a simple version of the code with the treeview removed.
// Gets a new security context using SHAREPOINT\system
using (SPSite site = new SPSite(this.Page.Request.Url.ToString()))
using (SPWeb thisWeb = site.OpenWeb())
PortalSiteMapProvider sitemapprovider = (PortalSiteMapProvider)SiteMap.Providers["GlobalNavSiteMapProvider"];
foreach (SiteMapNode node in sitemapprovider.GetChildNodes(sitemapprovider.TryGetRootNode))
//Use the child node
this.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl(node.Title + "<br>"));
this.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl(node.Key + "<br>"));
this.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl(node.Url + "<br>"));
I have been asked to write a script which retrieves .tif files from document libraries along with its meta data and also convert .pdf files to .tif files. I really don't have any idea to write this code. Please help me out and give me a solution ASAP. Thanks in advance!!
if you want to block .doc and .docx files for all the document libraries in sharepoitn site.. Go to central admin and add these two file extensions as blocked file type for your site collection...
If you want to block .doc and .docx file only for one document library than write a custom event handler on itemAdding and check for the file extension if extension is .doc or .docx cancel teh event ............
