If it's anything like 2007, the membership aspect of My Sites is worthless. In 2007, it required that you explicitly be entered into the Members group in a site/site collection. Anything higher (like owners or designers) you didn't show up. Anything lower (like Visitors) you did not show up. If you were given direct permissions you did not show up. If ...

welcome to SharePoint Stack Exchange!! It is not possible out of the box, just so that you know! But, your problem was so interesting that I thought of spending couple of hours just to develop a small customization :) So this is how my solution works: The default size of images posted on Newsfeed time-line is 300x300px I developed a custom feature that ...

Not sure, If I can post it as an answer...Please let me know if that is not the case. Issue: Memberships section on My Site's My Profile section is empty and is not showing user as being a member of recently added sites. Solution: Memberships list is populated by the User Profile Service Application - User Profile to SharePoint Full Synchronization Timer ...

I could reproduce the behavior.. Apart from the things you have already discovered, check following to see if that fix your problem. Under Central Administration, UPS --> People --> Manage Policies, Check under "Membership" category for the item "SharePoint Site" and make sure it is ENABLED. If it is disabled, you would see nothing under Membership in your ...

There is a social comment manager class which will help you to achieve this. You can add comments using the function Addcomment with the argument of URI. You can use the function GetComments with the argument of userprofile to retrieve all the comments of the particular user in my site. You can also use the function GetComments with the argument of URI, ...

I believe you can add a new uerprofile property inside the User Profile Service application with the name as "Org Unit" and configure it to with any specific AD property.Also you can configure it as whether to show this in the profile page, allow it as editable etc..

You need to staple to SPSPERS#0 template. See this technet post.

Seems like you didn't followed proper steps to set up User Profile Service application in your farm. The possible problem could be that there isn't a site collection set up using the appropriate template in the MySite web application.

Microsoft has confirmed this bug in the Oct 2011 cumulative update. According to this MSDN blog post the fix should be included in the Dec 2011 cumulative update and should be released around December 27th.

I've validated that this is resolved in the SharePoint Dec 2011 CU. Also, uploading pictures for other users via Central Admin has been fixed, which was purposefully broken in the June CU. You can find the links to the Dec CU updates here.

Here is an overview and base project I put together on my blog to cover how the navigation is configured as well as the base content needed for a new page. http://www.mikeoryszak.com/sharepoint/user-profiles-adding-a-custom-tab-and-page

David, Memberships aren't administred via AD: site memberships appear in a persons profile whenever that person is added as a site member (so no site owner, administrator, just owners.). AD-groups don't count, the profile has to be added, otherwise it won't work. about the organization: that is created based on what manager you do have and do have in ...

You will need to authenticate to each web application you visit. If your main site is http://intranet and your MySite host and personal sites are at http://mysites then going to the user profile (within the MySite Host) or to a personal site would require authentication again. If you are using Windows Auth, then it would be a good idea to configure the ...

In the "Manage User Properties" of the page, there are arrows to move a property up and down and even change the sections. I quickly tested it and it works!

Figured this one out...what I did was create a Security Trimmed Control using this code: <Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl runat="server" Permissions="ViewPages"> <div id="blank-ribbon" class="custom-blank-ribbon"> </div> </SharePoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl> the code goes in the masterpage Then I styled the ...

You'll want to check your masterpage for the following line. <div id="s4-ribbonrow" class="s4-pr s4-ribbonrowhidetitle"> and remove the s4-ribbonrowhidetitle class... <div id="s4-ribbonrow" class="s4-pr">

A bio would typically be the About Me section of the user profile. It shows up on the public person.aspx page for the user. That not fitting the bill?

I don't think there is any other way, than creating a script that will remove the picture information from User Profile.. Following code will help: SPSite site = SPContext.Current.Site; UserProfileManager userProfileManager = new UserProfileManager(SPServiceContext.GetContext(site)); // accountName is Active Directory account UserProfile userProfile = ...

If your page is deployed via a feature, it's considered to be the site definition, so if you customise it further within SPD, and you reset to definition, it'll reset to as installed by your Feature.

Your best option is to see if you can create a class which extends from the ProfileBrowser and add your own properties. Otherwise (ie: if it's sealed) then you'll have to start from scratch. The source generally isn't available for propriety Microsoft Products.

The field is called "Status Message".

There is not "value" versus "display name" option. Your best bet would be to use the Termstore to provide the lookup/dropdown functionality. Here is a write-up I did on creating a custom property that uses the Term Store: http://nextconnect.blogspot.com/2010/06/user-profiles-creating-custom.html

+1 to Mikes suggestion on using term store for this. For completeness: As an alternative, for example if data should be readily available in an external application, you could use Business Connectivity Service (BCS or formerly BDC just to add to the confusion;-) as a secondary data source for your profiles. Your data could then be stored in an external ...

We were also wondering how the 'Sharepoint Documents' web part under each employees' My Content tab of their profile worked. Mainly because we found it wasn't always showing everything properly. For example, under the 'Shared Documents' it wasn't showing everything in the Shared Documents for that user. We figured out that this web part will ONLY show ...

In my opinion, deploying a solution with your code in a feature is always the way to go. You'll need to use feature stapling to do more advanced look and feel changes. Customizing My Sites in Microsoft SharePoint 2010

I dont have access to any dev box right now, but will try to guide you anyhow: The web control you are refering to is placed inside the person.aspx page. You could copy that control (and its tag prefix) from person.aspx to your custom page to make it look like person.aspx
