Ok, this is how I did it: Build a method that enables me to retrieve all items of a certain ContentType (use SPSiteDataQuery for Cross-Site in the same site collection, or simple SPQUery for a single list) - many examples available but look here for a start http://sharepoint-snippets.com/spsitedataquery-examples-for-sharepoint-2010/ (actually i've built my ...

I know "I Like it" and "Tags & Notes" is coming from a FEATURE called SocialRibbonControl More information here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721062.aspx You can check what commands are executed by looking at: SocialRibbonControl\SocialRibbonControl.xml file. The commands referred in this xml file are mostly in SP.UI.SocialRibbon.JS ...

You can define a column in a list of type 'Managed Metadata'. This column allows you to set a specific Term Set to use in this column. The TagCloud will not look at this field. Unfortunately it only uses 'I like it' and the tags on the pages (social tagging). As far as I know you have to build your own (or maybe someone did already).

I know I'm sidestepping half of your question (others have provided good starting points), but check out this Codeplex project for the implementation of the Tag Cloud itself. Clean, lean interface & reusable: The tag cloud. What I've done recently is build a TaxonomyDataSource class that provides terms in a standard Dictionary property (with some other ...

Have you also restored the Metadata Service database to the Production System? I am pretty sure that the metadata fields store GUID of terms as values and even if the NAMES of terms are same both in Model and Prod if they were created by hand their GUIDs will be different and this way in you Prod the system encounters unknown GUIDs and alerts to you with ...

You need to have My Sites Host (you do not need to enable My Sites for all users) properly setup and configured.

I create my own "Category" column and set the type to "choice". Specify my choices, and all set! You can then leverage that to build a "Table of Contents" grouped by Category (as long as pages can only be part of 1 category). There's a great HowTo here: Link One step further (if you want to allow others to be able to add more categories without giving them ...

I saw two good posts about this earlier in the year: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/maximeb/archive/2010/04/01/what-sharepoint-2010-looks-like-with-internet-explorer-6.aspx http://blogs.msdn.com/b/maximeb/archive/2010/07/30/what-can-work-with-internet-explorer-6-and-sharepoint-2010.aspx Tags will work, but there is so much other stufff that doesn't that it makes ...

Check: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721063.aspx and/or: http://blog.beckybertram.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=101 Specifically, the "Use social features" must be enabled, in order for tagging to be enabled (not 100% sure whether the buttons will actually be disabled or hidden, when "use social features=false", so you will need to verify ...

@Robert, I tried the constructor idea and found that this: I use this url to get to a document library (note the parameter wortony=1): http://sps2010servername/Docs/Forms/AllItems.aspx?wortony=1&InitialTabId=Ribbon%2EDocument&VisibilityContext=WSSTabPersistence When I use the New document process from SharePoint the constructor fires and the ...

Restore the Managed Metadata SQL database to your test environment. Create a new Managed Metadata Service Application in your test environment using the same name of the database you restored. You may need to give your service account permissions to the MM SQL db prior to creating the SA.

Privacy and security implications of social tagging (SharePoint Server 2010) can help you some understanding as to how the security trimming worked on Notes web part. Following is taken from it: Security trimming Adding a tag, a note, or a rating to a Web page creates an activity. Before SharePoint Server displays an activity, it uses a component ...

Maks is right. If you do not copy the terms along with the site collection, the terms used in the site collection will becone "unbound", unless the termstore in production is an exact copy (labels AND Id's) of the source environment. A taxonomy field is in essence nothing more than a lookup field, whose source is the termstore. In the site collection there ...

Unfortunately, Tagging is not supported in SharePoint Foundation. It is included in both Standard and Enterprise editions. An excellent editions comparison chart is available here: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/buy/Pages/Editions-Comparison.aspx

It also ...

I'd set the columns default value using MetadataDefaults.SetFieldDefault. Instead of doing it in PowerShell you can do it in a FeatureReceiver of the feature deploying your document library

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by you are using the same document library for all subsites. But I think you do this ootb with the Column default value settings under your list settings. update: public override void ItemUpdating(SPItemEventProperties properties) { properties.AfterProperties["SiteUrl"] = SPContext.Current.Web.Url; ...

SharePoint 2010 comes with Managed Metadata Services which does pretty much what you seem to be looking for. You would need to make sure is configured on your farm and then you can either define a Taxonomy via Central Administration or at the Site Collection Level only by creating TermSets to follow your hierarchies. See here for an introduction ...

One of many approaches to this question would be to create a simple Tag list. Users can add tags into this list as needed. Then in your list where you want to create a tag, create a Lookup column that allows multiple selections pointing to the Title column of the Tags list. When items are created or edited, users can add or remove tags to the item from ...

While Managed Metadata is an excellent feature, it is only available in SharePoint 2010 Standard and Enterprise, not in SharePoint 2010 Foundation. Which version are you using? If you are using Foundation, then PirateEric's answer will work well if the list of tags does not need to be edited frequently. If you would like users to be able to add their own ...

Tag profile is used by Managed Metadata service as a landing page for a keyword/term. It means items that are tagged in SharePoint each get a My Site-type profile page of their own. It’s basically an index of that tag, everything that's tagged with the term, be it pages, documents, blog posts, whatever. You can read and leave comments, see which users have ...


2

Yes and no (to the customization question). The easiest way to key tags like support is to enable on the Posts list via List Settings > Enterprise Metadata and Keywords Settings and make sure it is checked to "Add an Enterprise Keywords column to this list and enable Keyword synchronization". That shall add the generic column for tags. For the automatically ...

You can for each document library also specify different default values for columns. You can even specify different default values for different folders within a document library. Navigate to the settings page of the document library and click the link labeled Column default value settings See the article Metadata Defaults in SharePoint Server 2010 for ...

You can create few content types inheriting OOB content types (Item, document, ... ) with necessary fields (like team, section, dept), and use this as your base content type to create lists, documents libraries. You can then create an event receiver for these content types, that update the columns based on the loggedin user.

You probably want to use CrossListQueryInfo and CrossListQueryCache to do cross-list queries. In your case, to get all the pages that have a certain metadata tag. Here's a link on how to do those cross list queries: http://bloggingabout.net/blogs/bas/archive/2009/03/27/using-the-crosslistqueryinfo-and-crosslistquerycache.aspx Then, for your CAML Query you ...

Using the query hints above I was able to build some web parts the show the term store as navigation and trigger that term search: It's also available for A-Z glossary (flat structure): Hope that helps.


1

Yes, that is possible and perhaps Metadata navigation feature of list/libraries is using it behind the scene. The article below precisely describes what it takes to build a CAML to query list/library items based on managed metadata fields: Querying on Managed Metadata Field Values in SharePoint Server 2010 (ECM)

I had the same problem.

It might be that your Content Hub is not setup properly. The solution for this person (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010setup/thread/28c143cd-b154-4444-a806-475608ddd5d0/?prof=required) was to enable the Content Syndication Hub feature on the Site Collection, add that as the configured metadata hub in the Managed Metadata ...
