You can only use those contenttypes that inherits from a base-contenttype avaibable in documentlibraries. For example you can create a "Voucher" using the document-contenttype and best putting it in the same group.
Then you can use it.
The question is: why can't you use another type. That's because other types don't have the file-field declared by SharePoint. That field is important cause a document library has documents and documents are stored in the file-field. A list that doesn't inherit it from such a content-type doesn't have the right field (with the right id). So it can't be used.
Normally it should be visible in "All Groups". So the question is, if the site is in the same WebSite where the content type has been defined. If it's not, you should copy it there or (a way I didn't tried yet) use the content-type-hub.
Your question is not fully clear to me but it appears like you added a new column to a document library but might have missed to include the column in the default view. Anyway, you can include that column in view by modifying the view.
There is no foolish question, there is no final answer...
I have been working on a SharePoint 2010 solution on a server using Visual Studio. Unfortunately the server decided to die on me. Fortunately I have the solution backed up using source control and had another server ready to go. After changing the necessary site url property on the project in visual studio, I used the deploy option in the build menu and it seemed everything was successful.
However, none of the features show in the site collection features, site features or farm features. The folders and files exist in the features under the 14 hive and the assembly is in the gac.
Having no luck with this I tried packaging the wsp, uploading and activating it manually (something ive not done before). This throws up an immediate error with a correlation id allowing me to find something in the logs.
Some of the logs seemed to be complaining because of farm-scoped features. As I have never done a manual deploy before I dont know if I have to do the differently scoped features separately (visual studio used to do it all at the same time for me).
The only other error I can see is "Missing one or more of the following attributes from the root node in solution Bistech___Provision_Sites.wsp: assembly '', type ''"
The solution is not a sandboxed solution and I have all the permissions etc i need (farm admin, site collection admin...)
I hope someone can help because I am out of my depth on this one!!

I have a problem that I'm really stuck with for sometime here.
I have setup a Team site with some document management stuff but its just not possible to access it from the intranet, whenever I do that I get the login dialog. Enter the username/password and it asks again and after the 3rd time, the dialog goes away with only a blank (white) screen in the browser.
Hello all. I have a SharePoint 2010 site collection, which has several sites (each in turn containing several sub-sites). I have a requirement to create a WebPart that displays an URL to the last modified document on the entire site collection.
My initial approach is to create a timer (SPJobDefinition) that iterates through the entire site collection, open each list, extracting the last modified document and compare it with the next list, and so on. Then, once I have the URL, store such URL somewhere (a property bag or a record on a list).
However, this seems too much work for this task. I was wondering if there is an easier way to accomplish this, or if someone has done so before, to give me hints on a better approach.
Thanks in advance. Any suggestion will be really appreciated.
