V3 Ghosted and UnGhosted

  Asked By: Colt    Date: Jun 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1111

So after attending the PDC I must say that I am really excited for
some upcoming features in V3.

One thing that I was hoping to learn a little more about was the
ghosting and unghosting. Honestly, I was hoping to hear we do not
have that situation anymore. Instead what I heard is that unghosted
pages will no longer be using the safe mode parser.

Well this doesn't really solve the problem in my eyes. You are still
able to edit a page in FrontPage and subsequent changes to the file
system would be ignored. Did I hear right? I would like to hear from
others that know more about V3, what do you think about the ghosting
and unghosting situation in v3?

Is there any documentation on V3 out there and is anyone actually on the beta? Were using SPS2003 pretty extensivley in our environment however there are features  that were promised in V3 that I have yet to hear about if they actually made it!

Ghosting and unghosting  will not be an issue anymore with V3. Feature like Master page  and others will alleviate the need to work with Site Definition. Administrators will be able to customization that previously required using Site Definition using a combination of Master Pages and out of the box feature. In addition unghosted  page will be cached so they will not be a performance hit.

Sorry I can say more as we are now allowed to disclose

I have to disagree that it won’t be an issue. From what was disclosed so far in blogs & @ the PDC, they have said that unghosting  hasn’t been eliminated… the concept does remain.

With that being said, I do agree with you Daniel that some of the major tasks that were affected by unghosting pages will be mitigated, but ~not~ eliminated. So from what I gather, it won’t be as much of an issue as it is now, but there are still cases where pages can be unghosted  and yield the same challenges we face today.

We’ll prob. get more once the NDAs are mitigated when the product is released in a public beta.

I think that Fitz's Ghosting, Schmosting! post is an optimistic outlook:

I agree, while unghosting  issues will be mitigated, I don't
think that all issues will be eliminated.
