It seems that not all features are active on the root site of your site collection. Some of the list templates, including the Communications list templates, are only available if a specific feature is activated. Please check the Site Features of your root site. You can do this by going to the Site Settings page, and then navigate to Site Features. Please ...

I think any release date you see at present will be speculation as there is nothing official from Microsoft. Many have speculated that MS will try to align the Office 15 release date with their conference in November, so I suppose the best answer anyone can give you right now is "probably the end of this year".

The only 'fixed' information we know about dates at this point (early March) is that there will be a beta version of Office 15 and its companion software (SharePoint 15, Lync 15, etc) 'this summer'. We do not know anything beyond that, if 'knowing' is defined as what Microsoft has published. 'This summer' can technically mean anything up to and including ...

List template gallery (the url atribute of _catalogs/lt) is only available in the root web of the site collection. So you get an exception when the feature is activated in the subsite because it cannot find the specified list (http://sitename/subsitename/_catalogs/lt). The templates should be available across the site collection. Change the feature scope to ...

Looks like there is something wrong with your site's Team Collaboration Feature (Site Actions > Site Settings > Modify All Site Settings > Site Features > Team Collaboration Feature). This adds a few list templates to the new list screen. Try deactivating a reactivating this feature. If that doesn't work, maybe its some permissions issues.

The entire WSP file is stored in the configuration database so you can always get it from there with PowerShell like: (Get-SPFarm).Solutions | ForEach-Object{$var = (Get-Location).Path + "\" + $_.Name; $_.SolutionFile.SaveAs($var)} When a farm solution is deployed the assemblies are copied to GAC or webapp bin folder. All the feature files are copied to ...

You cannot define feature dependencies cross scoped according to Activation Dependencies and Scope. In theory you can change the visibility once the site collection feature was enabled but you need to do the same for ever sub site that will be created. From my point of view the best way would be if you check in a feature event receiver of the web scoped ...

You cannot hide features after they have been deployed. Correction: Web Application is not a border for feature definition visibility in SharePoint 2010 SP2 as reflecting on Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.FeatureActivator shows. Actually, what you should have done is you should have deployed to the one and only web application that is supposed to ...

Each custom form in lists actually contains a specific ListView web part, actually if you properly customize it, you have hidden most-likely the Default one, and added your own, for which you customize the behavior. All this to say that actually you are dealing with provisioning of duplicate web parts, which Waldek has also explained here - ...

I think that you can use script from this post to retrieve list of all installed features on a farm, after this you can check this list and find out does your feature is included in this list or not.

This is how I would do it: Create a blank solution (sln). Create a SharePoint project to hold the Web Parts (this will also be one single WSP). Use Add Existing Project... to add the Web Part projects to your solution (sln). In your new SharePoint project create a Feature. Add the Web Parts to the new Feature. Now you will have a completely separate ...

It appears that you don't have enough permissions to activate custom features. I would recommend you opening SharePoint Management Shell (run it as an administrator) and run the following powershell to activate features: Get-SPWebApplication nameofwebapplication| Get-SPSite -Limit ALL | % {Enable-SPFeature "nameoffeature" -Url $_.Url} One more thing you ...

You can easily have multiple features in a single solution, and each of those features can have different scopes (ie: web application and site collection features in the same solution). You do need to ensure that if they have dependencies on one another, those dependencies are setup. Are you "upgrading" the solution, or retracting and redeploying now that ...

Features do not have a possible scope of 'List' so the specifics of how each feature affects lists is wholly dependent on what artifacts the feature itself adds. As such, there is no way to look for lists affected by a particular feature. Instead, you will need to know what it is specifically that is blocking the upgrade. If it is an outdated ...

You can force a removal of a feature using the -force flag in the stsadm deactivate command. See the MSDN article on the feature: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262680(office.12).aspx The web part may still appear in the web part gallery, you have to remove the reference manually after the feature has been removed.
