When you enable publishing you gain a lot, but you lose the ability to "save site as template". (To be clear, you lose this ability when you activate the site (web) level feature. If you only activate the site collection level "publishing infrastructure" feature, then you will still be able to "save as template".) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2492356

Exporting and importing as html will not work in SharePoint as it refers lots of controls and files internally Thee best suggested option would be to open the page in designer and copy the content to target page** but make sure all the those web parts are already in the web part gallery and fully functional. To check all webparts are in the gallery,...

There's one answer to all of your questions. No, Publishing feature is there to provide you with extra features to site collection, this feature is activated by default for Publishing side.

Publishing site is more oriented in pages, which means it has a more articulated way of publishing pages, the most common template being the 'article page'. Every page will obey to the mechanism of save-checkin-publish, it can be boring for a normal user to have to do all those actions to see his article appear. (example: an intranet with a roll up of news ...

No you can't. The whole point of a personal (MySite) site is that it is a silo not connected to anything else. That’s why you get a Site Collection usually under the wildcard inclusion /personal of the MySite Host root Site Collection. To accomplish this effect you need to build/configure something of your own. But since there are a lot of dependencies to ...

It is important to understand that the Notes are considered "Social Data" or content and are not stored within the site. The social data is stored centrally as part of the associated User Profile Service App and related databases, and only reference your site, page, or content. When you put the Note Board Web part on the front page of a team site, it will ...

"In SharePoint 2013, when you activate Server Publishing Infrastructure, you will also lose the Quick Launch and Top Link Bar menu items from the Site Settings menu. This should not happen but it does." As for the Quick Launch and Top Link Bar menu, you could simply add it via using the Navigation Link. As for the "Would there be any downside to enabling ...

You can use page layouts on team site, but you have to activate publishing features on the team site (so basically you could just have used one of the publishing site templates like cms as base for your web template). I usually base my web templates on sts and then activate the site and web scoped publishing features on it via the onet,xml

Unfortunately I cannot add a comment due to insufficient reputation. But I guess you configured your mysite to use another domain as your "intra" web application. If yes than I believe the problem is described as an issue which exists since the preview of SharePoint 2013 as you can see in the following link. You need to scroll one item up to »Can't post ...

If you have connected the SharePoint Document library to Office using the Connect to Office button - it will show up as an option in your recent view of Office. But the best option IMHO is to teach users not to start Word and then save, but do it the other way around. Let them learn how to create a new file from the document library where they want to ...

I would recommend to utilize Web.GetSubwebsForCurrentUser method instead Web.Webs property since it returns the security trimmed (the current users has access) list of sub sites. Modified example var objectsToInclude = new Expression<Func<Web, object>>[] { w => w.Title, w => w.Url, w => w.Lists, ...

The names of the web applications don't have to be the same for any MOSS farm. In your case guessing from their names SSPADMIN is used for SP Shared Sevices Provider, MYSITE is used to host the users MySite and INTRANET is for other SP sites (Team sites, Meeting, etc.) Create a site collection on INTRANET and work on its top level site or create subsites.

The Posts list is exclusive to the blog sites, a similar app would be an Announcements list.

In general, team sites are more focused on content. They are meant to be used as "a single environment to create, organize, and share content." Features of this site type include: shared docs, announcements, calendars, links, tasks, discussion boards. These sites are good for document management or when the site is focused more on providing content and ...

hoffie4 is correct, but let me say that each of these is merely a template or jump start of a site. They are actually the same thing. You could start with a blank site and get to either one by creating libraries/lists or activating features. Just find the one that is closest to what you want and add or subtract elements to get what you want. I usually ...

Another option could be a content query web part. You can configure the web part to get documents from your library and apply condition to show recently modified documents. You can point web part to a document library in parent site or even in sub site. This web part is also OOTB web part.

Eric is correct, you cannot add Posts unless the site is created initially as a Blog. I create almost all sites initially as a Blog since you can add all of the Team site features to it after the fact, but you can not add Blog functionality to a team site without building it from the ground up.

A PM in my company expressed that a client’s subsites (that were based on the team site template) were not respecting the navigation setting (the structured navigation tool) to open links in a new window. All the setting does is add a target=”_blank” to the link. Here is what the setting looks like (from Site Settings – Navigation): From what I can tell, ...

You cannot set security on a thread in Yammer, only on Groups. So yes, if you want to enable security on a per-team basis you'll need to set up a group for each team. Also, watch out when using the Yammer embed in a secured context. Users can post to any group they choose, and you can't fix that, so they need to be aware of that.

try the below solution: Go to Central Admin. Click on the “Application Management” heading. Click on “Manage services on server”. Stop the service “Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application”. This will take a little while to stop. Start the above service again. This should resolve the problem.

What i see in terms of disadvantage, you have to perform the cleanup on the new site collection as Security / permissions Event reciever & Workflows in the list Alerts on List Search, If both sites crawled and having the same content will cause the ...

I think CT hub is good idea, it is central location to control the things. Here’s a little powershell to publish content types from the content type hub to subscribing sites. $HubUrl = “http://contenttypehuburl” $HubSite = Get-SPSite $HubUrl $HubWeb = $HubSite.RootWeb $Publisher = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy.ContentTypeSync....

MS Access and put it on a network drive, in 2014 ? Oh c'mon (publish it as a Web database with Access Services, if anything). Kidding aside, what you described is exactly one of the main functionalities of SharePoint. Since you didn't specify what version and edition of SharePoint you have, I'll base my answer on what I know best, that is 2010 Standard/...
