Error when trying to open a portal site area with FrontPage

  Asked By: Loren    Date: Jan 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1054

When I try to open a portal site area (SPS2003) with FrontPage 2003,
I get an error:

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 do have a custom web part that is not on the page, but it is in
the web part page gallery...however, the web part is listed in the
web.config file as safe, is in the bin directory of SharePoint (not
in the GAC), and can be used on the page. FrontPage just doesn't
like it. How can I fix this? There are some customizations that I
can only do with FrontPage on some lists that I need to do... Please
help!! I can use FrontPage on other SharePoint areas that don't
have this web part, what can I do to make this work?

If you use Host Header, you need to have teh assembly in the GAC. We have encountered this problem many times. Also make sure your assembly is strongly named.

Okay, so that's the issue. Now that I have two web parts that are
in the bin directory, how can I easily move them into the GAC? 1.
Give them a strong name, 2. move them into the GAC, 3.... do I need
to reimport them into SharePoint? or will the .dwp still find the
