We were trying to move several meeting workspaces from a 5th level sub-site to a 2nd level site within the same site collection.  We know regular sites at the same or different level can be moved, but for some reason the meeting workspaces won't move.  Publishing feature is activated on the destination, and we have moved test sibling sites into different sibling sites.  Error we keep getting is:

'Site in question' cannot be moved or copied into itself or one of its subsites

Looks like you just need to be patient to get these workspaces to move!  ~=^)

1. Move modal comes up
2. select destination
3. *** wait for modal window to post back
4. then you can click "OK" to move the actual sites

Creating custom SharePoint 2013 templates could possibly render the page ribbon incorrectly.  

Why????

Custom styling can have a tendency to interfere with the default SharePoint 2013 styling...particularly the ribbon.  Box sizing has a lot to do with how dropdown lists and images are displayed in the ribbon.

Box-sizing allows us to specify how we want the browser to calculate the CSS box model. 

In particular, should the “width” of a box or container include padding and the border, or is the width just what is inside of the padding? 

Content-box means that the specified width and height do not include margins, borders, or padding. 

Border-box, on the other hand is similar to how Internet Explorer determines width and height when a document is rendered in Quirks mode

...meaning the width and height include the border and padding, but not the margin.

 The following CSS can help you with your ribbon displaying properly after using custom SharePoint design in your templates:

*, *:before, *:after {

   -webkit-box-sizing: content-box; /*border-box causes many issues with SP*/

   -moz-box-sizing: content-box; /*border-box causes many issues with SP*/

   box-sizing: content-box; /*border-box causes many issues with SP*/

}

* [class^="span"], * [class^="span"]:before, , * [class^="span"]:after {

   -webkit-box-sizing: border-box; /*re-enable border-box for framework spans*/

   -moz-box-sizing: border-box; /*re-enable border-box for framework spans*/

   box-sizing: border-box; /*re-enable border-box for framework spans*/

}

img {

   max-width: none;

   width: auto;

}

* [class^="span"] img {

   max-width: 100%; /*for images inside span grid*/

}

#scriptWPQ2 img, img.ms-webpart-menuArrowImg, #applist img {

   /*within a span may still need to have width of image not 100% for SP2013 OOTB features/imges*/

   width: auto;

   max-width: none;

}

.ms-siteactions-imgspan {

   float: none;

   margin: 0px;

}

 

 

/*Custom Styles to Fix Ribbon Layout Issues*/

 

#s4-ribbonrow [class*="span"] {

   float: none;

   margin-left: 0px;

   line-height: 1.2em;

}

input.ms-cui-cb-input {

   height: 21px; /*14 was from first try*/

   padding: 3px 7px 2px;

}

 

 

@media (min-width: 1200px) {

   header > .container-fluid, nav#topnav > .container-fluid, footer > .container-fluid,

   .footer-bottom  > .container-fluid  {

      max-width: 1160px;

      margin-left: auto;

      margin-right: auto;

   }

   #main {

      max-width: 1200px;

      margin-left: auto;

      margin-right: auto;

   }

}

 

/*Fix Absolutely Positioned divs in a Grid Framework*/

 

header > .container-fluid {

   position: relative;

}

header .searchbox {

   bottom: auto;

   right: auto;

   position: relative;

   float: right;

   margin-top: 60px;

   text-align: left;

   width: 260px;

}

   box-shadow: none;

   transition: none;

   -moz-transition: none;

   -webkit-transition: none;

To fix “Workflow failed on start (retrying)” error we did the following:

1. From the local machine/development machine, the Visual Studio solution property for “Assembly Deployment Target” is set as “GlobalAssemblyCache” shown below:

2. Double click the package file in the solution

3. Click "Advanced" tab near the bottom of the page

4. Click "Add" >> "Add Existing Assembly" from "Add" button near top of screen

5. Click ellipses button next to Source Path

6. Navigate to where you project's bin\Debug folder is located

7. Select the .dll file which holds the name of your project

8. From the "Add Existing Assembly" modal window, select "WebApplication" option

9. Click "Ok" and "Deploy"

10. Navigate to the bin/Debug folder for the Visual Studio project, and the .wsp file is what needs to be pushed to the SharePoint Server

In case you need to remove the SharePoint Library ribbon option of "Upload Document" to a library:

b2ap3_thumbnail_upload_document_link_ribbon.gif

...and have the following scenario presented to the user:

b2ap3_thumbnail_no_option_upload_ribbon.jpg

  1. Open the library in SharePoint designer
  2. Open the "All Documents" view (in our case)
  3. Find the ending tag for <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderMain" runat="server">
  4. Just before </asp:Content> insert the following CSS as shown below:

</ZoneTemplate></WebPartPages:WebPartZone>

<style type="text/css">
/*
hide the New Document, Upload Document, New Folder on left side of ribbon, have to use the back slashes to escape the dots in the element ID
*/
#Ribbon\.Documents\.New {display:none;}
</style>

</asp:Content>

Line chart series to start at 0

I have a line chart series that is for accounting.  A sample query would pull back 12 rows (1 row for each month, Jan - December), and the columns would show the dollar amounts for separate buckets of money allocations.  What I'm trying to do is have the series chart line start @ 0 (we're trying to mimic another chart that does the same thing).
