Migration to MOSS Resolution issue

  Asked By: Carlton    Date: Mar 02    Category: MOSS    Views: 713

We have migrated to MOSS 2007 from SPS 2003.

We have some sites that have coras works and some that used the
templates that came with SPS.
The standard resolution is 1024x768.
Here comes the problem.... when we create a new site in MOSS 2007 we
have no problems with scrolling side to side but all sites that were
migrated including the ones that used coras works.
Using the 1024x768 resolution all sites you have to scroll side to side...
Is there any way other than reset to site definition to fix th is issue.
Any help is appreciated.

I believe that some CorasWorks sites used unghosted (customized) pages.
You can reset pages on a page by page basis using either the browser or
SPD. Ask if you need detailed instructions on how to accomplish this.

orasWorks have a tool for updating the page layout and chrome of
their unghosted sites, called the Design Migrator, it can be used
against 03 upgraded sites or 07 to 07 (to change chrome & page
Basically, what you do is:
Create a site in 07, using CW 07 templates or from a basic team site.
Customise the page layout with SharePoint Designer, adding your web
part zones (taking care to have the correct IDs to match 03 ones)
Run the tool against your old sites, pointing to the page you did in
the new 07 site as a 'template'.
Click go and it incorporates all the nice new 07 look and feel to old

I had excatly the same issue  and found it works a treat. You can even
get clever and remove/relocate original web parts and zones to your
taste. It also fixes list views which are sometime broken during
