In a previous tip on using a host header as a SharePoint site path, we've seen how to configure a SharePoint site to use a different URL other than the server hostname for SharePoint Server 2007. How do we do this in SharePoint 2010?
In a recent tip, I discussed installing the Windows SharePoint Service and SharePoint Foundation 2010. Once you have completed the installation, you need to understand how to create a web application, site collections and sites. In this tip we will look at each of these components.
By default, SharePoint document libraries display graphical icons representing various Microsoft Office Applications (i.e. Excel, Word, etc.). All non-Microsoft documents are represented with a plain white square. How do I display a special icon for other document types?
When we try to open PDF files from a SharePoint 2010 library using IE 8 or above, we get prompted to Save the file and it does not open in the browser directly. In a vanilla SharePoint implementation the browser always prompts the user to save the PDF file rather than opening it.
This behavior can be very annoying for end users and a bigger concern is that such behavior promotes saving the files on the local computer even if the document is designed for view only.
You have SharePoint 2010 on your server and you recently upgraded IIS7 / 7.5 to ASP.NET 4.0 or you changed the "SharePoint Central Administration V4" application pool's .NET framework from version 2 to 4. Now you are getting error "There is a duplicate 'system.web.extensions/scripting/scriptResourceHandler' section defined" when you try to run Central Administration or any SharePoint application.
