SPS2001 Problem: Items created with Web Links doc profile

  Asked By: Elvin    Date: Dec 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1102

We're programmatically creating items in an SPS 2001 doc library using the
Web Links doc profile.

Even though we set the Categories property on the item (and we can see the
Categories settting in the web folder properties for the item), the items
*aren't* showing up in any of the category folders.

Any ideas why? We desparately need an answer.

Web Links are special web  parts that have a category of their own and are
designed to be view and accessed via the Web Links web part. AFAIK they are not
related to the Portal Categories.

Exactly how are you creating  documents in the Document library using the Web
Link profile?

We've solved the problem  and have gotten web  Link categories to work.

The Web Link profile  isn't limited to being used with the Web Links
web part and Web Link items  can have Categories assigned to them.

Check your gatherer logs to see if SPS/MS Search is having a problem
indexing the web page (or whatever) pointed to by your Link
(ShortcutTarget) property in your doc  profile. For information on
dumping your gatherer log, checkout

If SPS can't index the content pointed to by your Link url, the item
won't show up in the Categories that your web link item has been
assigned to.

(The SPS internal propery name for the Link field is ShortcutTarget.)

Thanks for the info. I though that you were getting confused between Category as
used in the web  Links web part and the Category as used in building the indexes.
