‘New Folder’ Button is Not Enabled

Ok – here’s the situation. You’ve got a library all set up and you want to add folders to the library, but when you go there, the ‘New Folder’ button is not available (not enabled) in the ribbon – it’s disabled. Have no fear, it’s not as dark and dreary as you would normally think.

Link CQWP Back to List

If you just fill out the necessary items in a Content Query Web Part (link to the list, title, sorting, filtering, etc.), you might just forget a very important step.

How many times have you put a List View (naturally connected to a list), but only wanted to show one item from the list or multiple lines using one column as a filter? Well, you can do that with little or no work, using a query string.

Force a Page into Edit Mode

Let’s say, you’re entering CSS or JQuery in a Content Editor in your page so certain parts of it are hidden and all of a sudden, you realize whether by accident or on purpose, you’ve hidden the Site Actions menu, so there’s no way to edit your page. Have no fear – –

Most people know about the Web Analytics Reports that come built in with SharePoint, but there is a way to run a report on specific Document Libraries that show how many times each file was accessed and opened.

Before you do this, you must go to Site Actions/Site Settings/Site Collection Administration/Site Collection audit settings and click on the checkbox titled ‘Opening or downloading documents, viewing items in lists, or viewing item properties’.

First off, let me tell you that you will need Site Collection Admin permissions to do all this, but it’s not really that hard at all. The link to get there to be able to run the reports is not with the Web Analytics under Site Actions (in Site Settings).

You need to get the full name of the logged in SharePoint user using Javascript so you can fill a textbox (or whatever your needs are). This is actually more simple than you would think.

The way I found this was when I was looking for pages that were created in a site I inherited, the original developer (for some unknown reason) did not turn on Publishing and created a new separate directory/library for the web pages. So, every time, I tried to edit a web part on a page, it would tell me (once I got through with the entire edit), that I needed to check the page out before making my edits. That drove me crazy.

So, later, I turned on Publishing, but some of the normal stuff that goes on when you do this did not happen. So, the ‘super user’ that needed to create new pages could not – she got the old ‘access denied’ message. But, this was rather easy to remedy.

If you, for some reason or the other, find that when you try to add a new document to your document library, that it comes up and prompts you for an InfoPath type of document and you know beyond a shadow of doubt that you’re supposed to just get a normal ‘Browse’ dialog to upload your other types of files, it’s not as bad as you think. It’s not all screwed up – there’s an easy check-up to fix this.

Let’s say you want to have a list of announcements, but you would like it to present itself in a blog format, so within SharePoint, you set up the Blog site template. However, since it’s merely announcements, you don’t really want any to be able to comment on each of the items.

The way I learned (a long time ago ) to hide fields in the New/Edit/Display forms of a list was to create new forms, set them as default and manually go in and remove the fields I wanted hidden. Of course the way to do that is using SharePoint Designer. The problem is that, if someone goes in and adds another column/field to the list, it doesn’t automatically show up in these forms, the way they would have done when using the default ListForm Web Part which is used as default on these forms.

I’ve come across a much easier and a much better way to handle this. The base principle is that with the default ListForm web part, any new fields which are created show up by default. When you need to have certain fields not show, what you can do to keep this functionality is as follows:
