or simply: $site = Get-SPSite http://YourSharePointSite $site.AllWebs.Count

Subsites are incredibly useful in all the following scenarios This site has a different function from the main site. Assuming you are talking about an internal portal, generally you would want your helpdesk and your social committees to have their own subsite each. Because their information will almost never be relevant to each other, and they are both ...

I would assign the site's Visitor group a read-only permission level throughout the site.

Yes, absolutely. In 2010+, it's the group NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users Before that, it was "All Authenticated Users"

Yes, sitemanager.aspx looks more SP2007-like, but you cannot specify the default master page because it does not use a master page at all. If you look at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\SiteManager.aspx you will see no master page in the Page directive and no ContentPlaceHolders on the page.

The Site Definitions are not examined when rendering a page but during provisioning. For a detailed explanation of the rendering see the link provided by @Moss Farmer, but let me give a shorter version here. Application pages (from _layouts) Application pages are just ordinary ASP.NET pages which are rendered from a virtual directory. Site pages The site ...

From a technical point they're exactly the same. The only difference is the way users think of site collections beneath each of them. So it's common to use "/teams/" for site collections for individual teams and "/sites/" for everything else (in SharePoint Online, On-Premises often create their own) "/sites/" and "/teams/" is what is called managed paths in ...

Expanding on what others have written above, in SharePoint 2010 and 2013 it depends on the type of authentication you've setup your Web Application with. For classic mode you only have windows authentication so NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users will grant access to anyone that can authenticate with a valid windows credential. For claims mode you'll have at ...

You can set the site collection to Read-Only from CA, so it is possible that someone did this: CA > Application Management > Site Collections section > Configure Quotas and Locks > Select site collection > check if it is set to Read Only I think its default that site collections are set to read only during backup, so maybe you have a failed backup ...

Ok, consider we have this environment: We have farm-level WSP file (this also could be sandboxed in this situation, but for clarity, let's consider it is a farm one). This WSP contains some lists and libraries definitions/instances, and also some visual webparts. Also, WSP file contains at least one feature in it. This WSP is added into your farm, deployed ...

You can find the correct template and use it in code like this (templateName is the title of your saved template, locale is the locale ID of the template): // Find correct template SPWebTemplateCollection templates = SPContext.Current.Site.GetWebTemplates(Convert.ToUInt32(locale)); // or GetAvailableWebTemplates or GetCustomWebTemplates SPWebTemplate ...

You can try something like this in powershell. $allSiteFeatures = Get-SPFeature | Where-Object { $_.Scope -eq "Site" } $activeFeatures = Get-SPFeature -Site "http://sitecollectionUrl" $allSiteFeatures | ForEach-Object { $active = $false foreach($feature in $activeFeatures) { if($feature.Id.ToString() -eq $_.Id.ToString()) { $...

Open the feature that includes the project item and expand the files node on the project item to verify the files that are included with the item. I suspect that your elements file will not be displayed. You need open the properties for the elements file (open the file and click F4), and make sure that the type on the file is set to "ElementManifest".

The OOB way to do this is to lock the site through Central Administration > Site Collections > Configure Quotas and Locks > Site Lock Information Here you can either Not locked to unlock the site collection and make it available to users.

I would consider looking at Web Templates - see Anders Rask's slide deck & code from #SPSUK http://sites.wizdim.com/andersrask/sharepoint-2010/slide-decks-and-demo-code-from-my-sharepoint-saturday-uk-session/ In essence, save as a site template, import to Visual Studio and package up with the appropriate elements (cutting out elements you don't really ...

I just created a fresh site collection with a standard team site template (that has a Shared Documents library by default ). I used the following code and got the results listed below: $web = Get-SPWeb http://spdevsp01/sites/test $lists = $web.lists foreach ($list in $lists) { if ( $list.BaseType -eq 'DocumentLibrary') { write-host $list.title ...

With the SharePoint 2013 tools they removed the Site Definition project template, but added Site Definition as a project item. So you have to create an empty SharePoint 2013 Project and the add a new item of type Site Definition

I'd make separate site collections per vendor. Permissions will be easier to manage and you don't risk exposing information to other vendors by accident. Bog it down is rather vague. It might make things slower for other users if one vendor is storing a lot of data.

i think what your refering to is Minimal Download Strategy feature. Its purpose is to speed things up by loading as little resources as possible. Minimal download strategy (MDS) is new web technology used in SharePoint 2013 to save the bandwidth traffic and quick render the pages to the clients. MDS technique use a single .aspx page (/_Layouts/...

Try using Check Permissions in Permissions Management Page at List level and Item Level. Try checking the two users and another who can see the items to ensure they all have the same permissions. You can also look what values has the list item-level permissions at List Configuration -> Advanced settings.

Another option that I have found for restoring a site collection to a different domain to the source domain (and where the source site collection cannot be set up with the site collection admin for the destination domain) is to grant the user account doing the restore access to the web application. $w = get-spwebapplication http://[urltodestinationwebapp] $...

I think you should specify if "by site" you mean actually a sub-site as in SPWeb or a site collection, as in SPSite. If a Site Collection, simply Lock-it by setting it to Read Only, which shall be valid across the whole site Collection (no edits though, for Site Collection Admin neither). If you are more in the 2nd situation, where a business need requires ...

Not really, if the user is going to be creating and managing permissions, then that comes with the territory. Full Control grants this right so being listed as such gives them the trust that the permissions changes they are doing are desirable. If you're really that concerned, then give her Contribute or Design rights on the site and manage the security ...
