No Audience Targeting Option

  • No Audience Targeting Option pinniger

    I wrote a web part that pretty much just grabs info from an announcements list on one site, and redisplays it on another. Everything pretty much works fine except when I edit the web part, in the properties panel, I don't have the option for audience targeting. Which sucks, because I need to target this web part.

    Any ideas what could be causing this?

    Note:SharePoint 2007, Visual Studio 2010, WSPBuilder

  • Have you tried reproducing this web part using a Data View Web Part in SharePoint Designer 2007? I believe DVWPs have Target Audience capability.

  • Can you put audience targeting on the list that you're consuming instead? I'm not sure if the targeting would flow down to the web part but maybe worth a shot.

This works fine, as long as I am browsing the site from the server on which SharePoint is running, using the internal domain name (e.g. http://localhost:5050/site). If I view the site home page while not logged in, I can't see the webpart

We were very confused for a few minutes when we were
