  • How to graphically edit pages like AllItems.aspx (extracted using SPSource) in a WSPBuilder solution? Stef Heyenrath

    I've followed the 'SPSource_Starter_Guide_WSPBuilder.docx' tutorial and everything was correct.

    But I've a question : once you've extracted the aspx pages + schema.xml, which tool can be used to edit a AllItems.aspx page in designer mode ?

    This is not possible using SharePoint Designer or VisualStudio because the masterpage cannot be found once the pages are extracted from the site.

    Any solution for this ?

    I've also posted this question to http://spsource.codeplex.com/Thread/EditThreadDetail.aspx?ThreadId=85934 (Sorry for crossposting...)

  • I received an answer from jthake on my question on the SPSource codeplex site:

    Unfortunately there is no visual designer for these pages in SP2007 due to the comments you made. You could start hacking at the files to fix the references, but obviously that would then need to be corrected to then deploy them in the WSP file.

    So I will close this question.

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and I am using publishing portal template. I am using SharePoint Designer 2007 to design pages. When I open the default.aspx under Pages sub-folder of a site, there are two options: Edit in Browser and Edit Page Layout. I want to know what are the differences between Edit in Browser and Edit Page Layout -- especially what is the function of Edit Page Layout, because when I select Edit Page Layout, WelcomeSplash.aspx opens in SharePoint Designer, other than default.aspx itself (very confused). thanks
