Editing SharePoint home page for a publishing portal

  • Editing SharePoint home page for a publishing portal George2

    I am using SharePoint 2007 Server x64 on Windows Server 2008 x64. I create a new SharePoint web application with a new site collection at the root of the web application. I select the template "publishing portal" for the site collection. I have also enabled anonymous access.

    Now the basic function is fine, except that I do not know how to change the first front page (i.e. the page showed to end users who have not logged in yet) of the site. Here is a screen snapshot. Any ideas how to edit this page?

    BTW: I have tried to edit the default.aspx after login but anonymous users could still see content like in the following list. How do I remove this for an anonymous user?

    Enable anonymous access
    You must enable anonymous access on the site collection for the forms authentication logon page to work from Office SharePoint Server. Contact your administrator to have anonymous access enabled in Central Administration and IIS.
    Manage navigation
    Change the navigation links in this site.
    Go to master page gallery 
    Change the page layouts and master page of this site collection.
    Manage site content and structure
    Reorganize content and structure in this site collection.
    Set up multilingual support
    Use the variations feature to manage multi-lingual sites and pages.
    Add users to the Approvers and Members groups
    Users in the Approvers group can publish pages, images, and documents in this site. Users in the Members group can create and edit pages, and they can upload images and documents, but they cannot publish the pages, images, or documents. Workflow is enabled in the Pages library, and content approval is enabled in the Documents and Images libraries.

  • I have a custom master page, custom.master, for a publishing site. It was working fine, however I just enabled anonymous access to the publishing site, and now browsing to the home page... on each page.) If I disable anonymous access again, forcing me to log in before accessing the page, there are no errors and the page loads fine. To enable anonymous access I enabled it at the web application level, and then for the publishing site -- I chose anonymous access for 'entire site'. I guess it must be a permissions thing, but I have no clue as to what! Any help appreciated.

  • I have a web part which I am trying to target to a specific audience (the 'Staff' audience.) I have the web part in the home page of a site that has anonymous access enabled. I have set the Target Audience of the webpart to 'Staff'. The idea is that anonymous viewers can't see the web part, but logged-in members of staff can see the webpart. 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

Can anyone tell me what I may have misconfigured or need to change? Update I've worked with the problem a little more. If I just create a survey with one question using only a yes

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64. I have setup a site with template publishing portal. I have grant anonymous access to all the site. My question is, if I create a new page, how do I grant permission to an anonymous user to access (read permission) the page? I got confused because for the permission setting of a page, a permission is set according to a user name (e.g. read permission for user "foo" of a page). Since anonymous user does not have a related "user name", how could I grant read permission to anonymous user? BTW: I use Windows Forms authentication
