Multipage Decision Meeting Workspace

  Asked By: Tucker    Date: Aug 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1967

I like the way the decision meeting workspace gives you a tabbed
paging option.

I'd prefer to be able to have pages that are not included on the tab
but are, instead, able to be accessed from one of the tabbed pages.

I'd also like it not to be a stupid meeting workspace so I can get rid
of the stupid "Attendees" list and then, when I spawn a new one, it
will appear under sites and not "Meeting Workspaces."

So you make a blank website and try to add the tabbed paging web part
and it barfs saying something like "This web part is designed only for
meeting sites."

Way to Go Microsoft. Show me a sweet tool and don't let me use it.

Okay, ID = 2 is a killer.

And the tabbed page web  part?

You can only have one  Site Definition that uses the tabbed page Web Part
and it must have an ID="2".

Please forgive me for being obtuse but I'm struggling to get my
understanding within a reasonable range of yours. And, jeezey, I
think I speak for alot of group members when I say God bless you for
helping with all of these issues.

I know that when you create a site, you choose a template. Is that
what you call a "Site Definition"?

If so, then it would make sense that they would have an ID attribute
and that the ID for the Multi Tabbed Page Meeting Workspace template
would have an ID = 2.

But why would the web  part care what that ID is?

Are you saying that web parts in general are limited to a single
site definition? Or is it just a quirk of circumstance that the
tabbed page web part  is bound to this template because the
manufacturer thought it would be cool to aggravate the living hell
out of me?

What am I missing about why I can't have tabbed pages  on any site
other than a "Meeting" site?

Well written Web Parts do not care what Site Definition ID that they are
running on. There are two poorly written Microsoft Web Parts on the
default.aspx page of the MPS Site Definition that check the Site
Definition ID and if its not equal to "2", they say that they won't
render. Unfortunately, you can only have one  Site Definition with its
ID="2". So, the tabbed page Web part  is one of the poorly written Web

Well written Web Parts do not depend on the ID of the underlying Site
Definition. Hope that clarifies it for you.
