Site Features

  Asked By: Palak    Date: Jun 03    Category: MOSS    Views: 988

I have installed Moss2007 in a small farm environment
where front end server has all the services except
database service. Databas server is my second box.
The version of moss 20007 is "12.0.4518.1016".

I have created couple of sites and when i want to
enable the mobility shortcut url feature in the site
features which is part of site properties menu i have
seen only 5 features for the site and all are enabled.
And Mobility shortcut url is not one of the features i
have hence i was not able to enable the mbility url.

as per the findings in the internet
i have seen 10 features are enabled for the site.

So how do i get all the features to my sites also.

also i would like to know how to access the moss2007
site from pda/blackberry/smartphone etc devices.

Mobility is a hidden feature that I believe is turned on in almost all the
site definitions. You use it by adding a /m to the end  of the site's url
when browsing to it. For example: If my site  is accessed as
<http://intranet> http://intranet then I access the mobile version  as
<http://intranet/m> http://intranet/m. Mobility is managed through the
views in lists and libraries. If you go into the settings of a list and
edit a view you will see a +Mobile section at the end of the list. Expand
that section and you will see checkboxes that control whether that list is
available through the mobile view.

In terms of what clients can access the mobile view it depends on the
authentication you are using. If you are using Windows Authentication (the
default) then Palm and Blackberry probably won't work. But if you are using
Forms or anonymous almost any pda would probably work.

Apart from mobility i would
like to understand why iam not able to see all the
site features  in my moss2007  sites. Is there any where
i need to manually add all the features available by
default. In my first post i gave a url in that example
that site  is showing 10 site features, where as i am
able to see 5 features in my moss2007 site. Please

There are several reasons why you don't see the same list as the one on the
internet site  you posted.

1) That blog was written in July of 2006 on Beta 2. The RTM copy of
Sharepoint has a slightly different list. For example, mobility shortcut is
no longer a visible feature.

2) Some of the features  on that list are specific to certain site
definitions. You can enhance Document Center unless you are using a site
built on the document center site definition.

3) Some of the features on the list are specific to the Enterprise
license of MOSS. You won't see those unless you are running an Enterprise

Mostly its that the list of Features that can be manually activated has
changed since Beta 2.

You probably aren't seeing them for the same reason you aren't seeing
Mobility, they're hidden. What features  are you looking for? Is there
any change they're turned on and hidden, like Mobility?

All the features are stored on the file system of your web servers at
c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server
extensions\12\template\features. See if the Feature you're looking for
is in there. Use Mobility as a guide. Look at the Feature.xml file and
see if Hidden is set to true or false. That's what determines whether
it's visible in the UI or not.

The Features, and whether they are visible or not changed between the
betas and RTM. If you are looking at stuff on the web and it's based on
Beta code it's likely the list of visible features will be different.
