Problem with Close Button when you Close a Discussion

  Asked By: Geena    Date: Mar 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1825

Has anyone encountered a problem with the Close button when you
Discuss a document? Here's the scenario... I click "Discuss" under
a document - the document opens (sometimes in a seperate window which
I also hate! anyone know how to force it to actually open IN the
browser and not a seperate window?) - I can view the document and the
discussion thread - when i click the Close button on the discussion
thread, regardless if I add a discussion item/reply or not, it DOES
NOT close and sometimes even launches the discussed document again if
I closed it! The only way to move is to either hit the back button on
the browser several times or the drop down history arrow next to the
back button and choose a previous page. PLEASE! can anyone tell me
how to make the Close button actually work! the workaround with the
back button or the drop-down arrow is COMPLETELY unacceptable!

I also had similar problems with the close  button, but
we forced the discussion button  to open a separate
window, at the xsl file.

If I may be so bold, could I ask you to please forward me the code
and instructions of how you accomplished this?. I

At FolderItemsPart.xsl and SearchResultsPart.xsl look
for the following piece of code:
<A id="id_discussThisItem">
Add the following attribute, after the above code :
<xsl:attribute name="target">_blank</xsl:attribute>

It'll force the browser to open a separate window  for
discussion. At the new window, if you hit the close
button, it is expected that it'll close  itself.

At the resources folder... look at the web
folder(Network Places), locate your workspace and look
for the folder "Portal"(hidden) and under it
