Every change that causes update of the content database for that site collection will update LastContentModifiedDate, LastSecurityModifiedDate or both. That means almost every change you have mentioned. Only changes in file system will not update the content database. That means changes in SharePoint root folder (application pages, resource files, feature ...

As Varun Verma answered already, I will try and support the answer with my own to get you as much resources/information as possible. :) Content pages in Site Pages library are wiki pages. Page Layouts in Pages library, on the other hand, are the layout upon which a new Publishing page is created. This article explains what page layouts are and how they ...

“We strongly recommended limiting the size of content databases to 200 GB to help ensure system performance. “Content database sizes up to 1 terabyte are supported only for large, single-site repositories and archives with non-collaborative I/O and usage patterns, such as Records Centers. Larger database sizes are supported for these scenarios because their ...

If you look at your Site Contents and find the document library 'Pages' and/or 'SitePages' that's where all of your wiki pages will be located. You can insert that on your Home page and create a view on that document library and use it as a 'Table of Contents'. It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but it's completely OOTB and no coding ...

You must use cliconfg.exe on each SharePoint server to point the 'old' SQL Server name (and instance if applicable) to the new SQL Server name (and instance if applicable). So if you had an old SQL Server name of OLDSQL and a new one of NEWSQL, you would run cliconfg.exe on each SharePoint server, go to the Alias tab, add an alias named OLDSQL. Set it to TCP/...

The community tools web part, is part of the site template and not intendet to be edited. These links have been selected by the development team of the community feature to make management simpler.

SharePoint will continue to work with large databases if not controlled, they will not fail when they exceed the recommended limits. You will however start to see performance degradation. You can limit sizes in SQL by specifying the maximum size a database can grow to. in fact it is a best practice to pre-size your databases at the maximum limit (if it is ...

Personally, If you are not strapped for space, I would both back up content and configuration as well as using your regular backups. Technically, you do not need to back up the content as well as have a backup of the sql instance, however they are really two different types of backups. One allows you to restore the site as a whole with everything on it to ...

BCS is the way that SharePoint can be made to understand how to access data which is not stored inside SharePoint. Its the abstraction layer between SharePoint and the external system. Because SharePoint can understand BCS then you get a lot of advantages such as External Content Types which really just present a UI for CRUD operations. With BCS you also ...

When saving the list as a template you get the option "Include content". So depending on your selection content will be included, but I think there is a limitation regarding the max. size of list templates (which was pretty low in SP2010, I think 10 MB) I will doublecheck on that...

Delete your web application. Create a new one. Take care that the authentication mode is identical with the initial web application in which your backed up site collection has been created. Do not directly assign your restored content database but let Sharepoint create a new (empty) content database. Next, from your Central Administration => Application ...

A Pages library is a document library that contains all the content pages for a publishing site. A site that has thousands or tens of thousands of pages stored in the Pages library must consider a unique set of issues that relate to managing these pages, and providing navigation between them in a site. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee721053....

Two years later: The answers above insufficiently take in account the end user's perspective. Because of that I've been confused by Sharepoint for years. I'll explain it differently : Site Pages TL;DR : Think "basic wiki pages". Site Pages is the library that is here by default for a Team site (which is the very first site template that you see when you ...

No you cannot show fields from different content types while editing an Item and this is the SharePoint's OOB functionality. An Item in SharePoint is associated to only one Content Type. So while editing an Item it is theoretically incorrect to expect fields from the other content type, to be displayed on the Form. Also I will never recommend to go ahead ...

This appears to be an issue with Chrome. I had the same problem using the standard content editor webpart in SharePoint 2013, so I tested it on three different servers, and the behavior was exactly the same. About a half a second after you click next to one of the bullets, the cursor would move either up or down. If you start typing fast enough you can ...

I dont think you can do it OOTB/ or view search service application. But if you know the Item title then you can use SharePoint powershell to find it. (Get-SPSite "http://SERVERNAME:PORT/").RecycleBin | ?{$_.Title -match "DeletedFile"} if you want to restore it then (Get-SPSite "http://SERVERNAME:PORT").RecycleBin.Restore("e7652991-b3b7-4df2-a3c8-...

There are couple of ways to migrate pages, you can package into a solution then deploy the solution to your target farm. Another way, take the full backup of a source site collection and restore site collection in target farm.

You can't attach two copies of the same content database in the farm because the various GUIDs will be the same. Unfortunately the error messages you get when you do this are not especially helpful. The workaround for this is to create a temporary farm somewhere and attach the database there - then back it up from that farm. This gives you a fresh set of ...

You have two options: Audience Targeting If you only want the web part to be visible to users in the community's owners and moderators groups (as you mentioned in your comment beneath your post), you can enter these group names into the "Audiences" property in the web part properties tool pane. Pros: This approach is dead simple, and the web part won't be ...

You can use the ? operator. For example: {?myfield:{QueryString:XXXX}} will not effect the outcome of the query if the field has no value.
