Physical location of "Style Library"

  • Physical location of "Style Library" thomas.stock

    I'm a complete newbie in sharepoint so this is an easy question.

    I've uploaded a .css to the Style Library and am looking for an easy way to change it. (ctrl+s to save and F5 to refresh page)

    What is the best way to do this?

  • When you do an upload using the web interface or SP designer, it does not have a physical location. It is stored in the database.

    You could initially deploy your file into the Style Library using a "Feature" instead, which means you will have a physical file on the filesystem in your Feature folder. You can use this file to repeatedly perform your edit/save/refresh sequence with no delays.

    Note that as soon as you modify/overwrite this file through the web interface or SP designer, you lose the ability to change the file on the filesystem and see it's changes.

  • @Jaap Vossers - The method you describes do not work. At least not in MOSS 2007. There you had to manually delete the file from the Style Library and then reactivate the feature to get an updated file. Maybe this has changed in 2010?

Also Is there a way to obtain the parent site WSDL asmx without having access to the parent SharePoint site, but having full control of the current sub-site? I never see the option for the Style Library or the _layouts/_vti_bin folders to be created. Can anyone shed some light on these items and how they can be obtained/copied to the parent folder without having access to the parent folder?

  • I know that in SharePoint 2007, every image inside a [Picture Library] can have a thumbnail by adding the (_t) folder and the _extension.jpg to the file name. What about if my images are stored inside a [Document Library]? is there a way to display thumbnails of those images (of course without having to download them all :)) I am working on a thumbnail view application and my images are all stored inside a Document Library.
