User's public web site

  Asked By: Geoffrey    Date: Feb 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1478

I added few extra fileds on the users public site like home phone, home address,
etc and I want these additional fields visible only to a specific group of LDAP
users(say managers).

Is this possible? if not what alternatives do i have?

It might be possible to edit the public  view and add a web  part that's
targeted. That web part would just display those fields. You'd need to
create an audience of those managers (perhaps by A/D group).

Also, it's important to note that you're not really securing the
information, because I believe all properties in the profile database
are available to all users  if they know how to query it through a web
service. But it may give you what you're looking for.

Other option would be to *not* import those profile fields, and to instead write
a custom web  part to query AD directly for those fields. You could then
permission the web part inside its own code and more closely control access.

Or you could go for a hybrid where you add a custom server control to the
public.aspx mysite page for just the additional  fields, and check the user's AD
membership to determine whether to display those fields. A server control can
be a bit easier to develop and test than a web  part.

As long as they don't see it in the public  site that works for me. But how do i
edit public site  of all the users?

I have 1000 users. I can't go to each persons pubic site and make changes right.
Is there a specific  page where I make the change and that affects all the users?

When you as an administrator go to your My Site, then change to Public
view, then do Modify Shared Page, you're editing the Public MySite for
all users.

I don't know what going wrong here.. I am administrator for the portal but when
when i navigate Mysite >> public  i don't see "Modify Shared Page" instead i see
the following non hyperlinks

Shared PagesNo pages.

U can not edit public.aspx of MySite using sharePoint UI.

I'll have to check into that. I think the way we did it was going to
FrontPage and editing http://server/MySite/Public.aspx, but I'm not 100%
sure and of course any time you play around with that kind of stuff, you
risk making changes that might shnork your server.

Answer #9    Answered By: Vishala Verma     Answered On: Feb 01

editing http://server/MySite/Public.aspx that is what I was doing so far. But i
need a way to add a webpart to it and I don't have frontpage support.

Where can I find a webpart that shows users  LDAP attibutes?
