Changing location of portal listings

  Asked By: Alex    Date: Dec 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1185

I am in the process of rolling out SPS 2003 and building
the "topics" taxonomy. I am having trouble with one part... posting
portal listings in more than one area. I believe I should be able to
do this, but when I click the "change location" link for a portal
listing I get presented with the portal tree structure with radio
buttons next to each area. Obviously, this limits me to being able
to only move the listing to a single area.

If I remember right, I should instead get presented with the portal
tree structure with check boxes next to each area, allowing me to
tag a portal listing to more than one area. What am I doing wrong...
How do I get the check boxes back?????

Checkboxes only appear when you are initially posting the listing.

When you go to change the location, the user interface presents you with radio

You've got two choices:

1. Delete the original listing and recreate it, this time with the appropriate

2. Create an additional listing that looks identical to the first listing and
link it to the appropriate locations.

When the listing is created, you can place that listing in more than one location  in the taxonomy. What is really happening, if you choose multiple locations, is that multiple, individual listings  are being created.

After that, you can only move one listing at a time because each listing is an individual listing, not the same listing with pointers in each location.
