Empty list problem

  Asked By: Donavan    Date: Aug 31    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2131

I'm getting a problem when I create a list and add an item to it, I cannot see
any items at all in the list in any view. When going to All Site Content, it
tells me there are items in the list, and I can also see these items if I am in
SPD looking at a page with a web part for that list on the page. When viewing
the list using a webpart or going to the list's main page, the list appears to
be empty.

I can't seem to notice a pattern to this behaviour, it has happened in document
libraries, calendars and custom lists so far. I'm guessing this is something
that is quite common, so has anyone seen this and know how to get the items to
appear again?

Did you try turning off Content Approval?

Make sure you check the items  in, for a start. If the list/library requires
checkout, items that have never been checked in are only visible to the author.
They are not even visible to admins.

Does the list  item have any information in it?

Is the default view  filtering out content?

I have checked these things below and it is not filtering these items  out, and,
yes there are items in this list. However, I will try some of your other

I'm back to my site  and it seems that every list  I create  in my site shows up as
empty, even though I have items  in them. The RSS view  of the list shows the
items, but I cannot see them in any list view!
