Error trying to open Default.aspx

  Asked By: Conrad    Date: Sep 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 5347

When I try to open my Default.aspx file in SharePoint Designer I get
the following error.

soap:ServerServer was unable to process your request. ---> A Web part
or Web Form Control on this Web Part Page cannnot be displayed or
imported because it is not registered as safe on this site....

The only webparts that are currently enabled on my site are an
Annoucements webpart and Links webpart. I did have Todd's Style by
Cursor webpart enabled at one point but it is disabled now and I didn't
have any problems opening my default.aspx on my development site using
the Style by Cursor webpart.

Does anyone know what I can to fix this? This is on my production site
so I'm nervous to to do anything on my own.

Do you have any closed Web Parts? SPD will throw this error  for any Web
Parts on the page  (even if they are closed) that are not running under
Full trust.

My Style Under Cursor Web Part (no assembly required) is just JavaScript
that runs inside the Content Editor Web Part (CEWP) which is an out of
the box SharePoint Web Part so it shouldn't be causing any issue.

I can't tell what I have b/c it won't let me open  the file. Is there
somewhere else I can determine this. Also, if I have a closed web
part on the page  and I delete that web  part from the web part  gallery
on the site  will this mess things up?

If the page  you are having trouble with is:

Append contents=1 to the QueryString using a question mark as the

If QueryString variables are already in the URL, you append contents=1
using an ampersand:

Then click go in your browser or hit <Enter>. This will take you to the
Web Part Page Maintenance page:

From the web  Part Page Maintenance page you can delete the Web Parts
that are causing the problem. Note that you can tell which Web Parts are
closed on the page from here too. Also, if you have personalized the
page you will have both a "shared view" and a "personal view"; be sure
to change the one you are trying to edit in SPD (probably the default
shared view).
