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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

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 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 ...

Microsoft changed the name from Pictures to "User Photos" in the October CU and the December CU does not fix the problem. They didn't update the error message either, so it still says it's looking for Pictures, but it's really looking for "User Photos". You can confirm this by looking at the code for the upload control in reflector. Create a Picture ...

There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with your code from the surface with a read through. So it could be that you need to add your site to the safe zones of your browser. Have you checked this in other browsers? If this is the case for IE go to Tools > Internet Options > Security > Local Intranet > Sites > Advanced > Then add your site here. If this ...

Ok. I figured it out. Actually quite simple. This is what I did: Disabled the default Department property. Created a new Department property and mapped to department AD Field. Also set this Sharepoint property to use a term set. I then added this markup to the People page to replace the default "Department" ProfilePropertyValue: The next part is very ...

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.

Are the dimmensions different than what they should be or is it just a file size issue? Here's a brief overview of how the Photo management works in 2010: http://iedaddy.com/2010/12/sharepoint-2010photo-management-for-social-mysites/ you're only supposed to get three sizes, of 144/96/32. So what happens when you run this PowerShell command? ...

Assuming you use SharePoint 2010 this really is a non-issue: When the user uploads the picture using the GUI, SharePoint generates 3 thumbnails with a max with/height (depending on portrait or landscape) of 144px (actually 104px if picture is square), 96px and 32 px. The thumbnail pictures are saved in the User Photos library in MySite host site, and used ...

It is important to understand that there are multiple components involved. You have the base user profiles which includes the attributes about the people. You have the Social Data which has the extended info like tags and notes. You have the Personal or My Content sites which is the site collection they would own. As stefan mentioned, you can ...

It might be because you are using a custom master page for My Site. Can you make v4.master as the custom master page when the permission is disabled and check? If that does not work, may be you can try adding the navigation item under global navigation or current navigation by adding a link to "person.aspx" page, after disabling the permission. For this ...

You could try adding a Feature Receiver (on FeatureActivated) to delete the existing page, but this will only run after your file gets provisioned. To get around this, you could create 2 features, one visible, one hidden. The visible feature has an ActivationDependency on the second hidden feature which means the hidden feature will get activated ...

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

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 ...

+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 ...

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
