Error when trying to edit in Frontpage 2003

  Asked By: Roland    Date: Mar 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1237

When I try to access any pages for my Sharepoint sites in Frontpage 2003 I
get the following error message:

soap:Server Exception of type
Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException was thrown. A Web Part
or Web Form Control on this Web Part Page cannot be displayed or imported
because it is not registered as safe on this site. You may not be able to
open this page in an HTML editor that is compatible with Microsoft Windows
SharePoint Services, such as Microsoft Office FrontPage. To fix this page,
contact the site administrator to have the Web Part or Web Form Control
configured as safe. You can also remove the Web Part or Web Form Control
from the page by using the Web Parts Maintenance Page. If you have the
necessary permissions, you can use this page to disable Web Parts
temporarily or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your
site administrator.

I am new to Sharepoint management and was not involved in any of the
installation or configuration; can anyone help me out with this. I don't
know how to register a Web Part page as 'safe'.

This is a known issue, if you have custom web part, check this article
from Microsoft. If not try updating to SP1, I have seen this problem
many times but have not found a consistent solution


Lastly, I have noticed that restarting IIS with iisreset eliminate the
problem temporarily

I had the same problem many times, couldn't find an exact solution....what i do
is reinstall FrontPage 2003. This fixes the problem for me...

Do you have to continually keep reinstalling it? Or did you just have
to do it once?

FrontPage did not fix the problem for me permanently. I can't find a solution
for it. Now when i have to edit  a web page (default.aspx) i delete all the
custom web parts on that page then do my editing and later drag the web parts
again to the web page.

On the system described below the following workaround enabled me to edit  in
Front Page 2003.

Our systems are configured in the following manner:

We have two portals running on the same server and neither is using the
default IP address that was assigned to the NIC card. The both have their
own IP address assigned in IIS (not set to all unassigned). We are running
SSL (https) which precluded us from using the host headers solution without
some reconfiguration.

What I did to solve the issue was to create "shadow" versions of the portals
that do not run under SSL. I created new virtual directories in IIS that
have their IP address set to "All Unassigned" and used host headers to
differentiate between the two portals so that my original portals,
https://info.myportal1.com and https://info.myportal2.com, each had a shadow
version created: http://shadow.myportal1.com and http://shadow.myportal2.com

Set up, or have your DNS person set up, the new names and point it to the
Web server.

The next step is to create the shadow versions in SharePoint. These shadow
versions use the original portals' content so when you extend the shadow
virtual server, choose the Extend and map to another virtual server option.

When I want to edit a page in my portal, I enable the shadow version and
connect to it with FrontPage 2003. You may have to monkey around with the
web.config in the shadow copy (copy setting from the original portal) in
order to get everything working the way it does in the original portal.
