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

Some custom jQuery to autopopulate a text field via localStorage was used in a Content Editor on our NewForm.aspx page for a SharePoint 2010 list:

<script src="/.../jquery.js" type="text/j-avascript"></script>

<script type="text/j-avascript">
window.on-load = function(){
                window.setTimeout(readyCall, 1000);
}
function readyCall(){
     var piddata = localStorage.getItem('myPID');
$("#ctl00_m...TextField").focus();
$("#ctl00_m..._TextField").val(piddata);
}</script>

It's working as expected and auto-populating our field, but the top ribbon (especially the Attach File) in the ribbon was disabled.

The ribbon was finally enabled by using:

<script type="text/j-avascript">
$(document).ready(function()
{
   var e = $("input[id$='ctl00_m_g_..._TextField']");
   var piddata = localStorage.getItem('myPID');   
   e.val(piddata);   
});
</script>

For a Records Library Versioning Settings, we had the "Create major versions" turned on, but the versioning was still adding an underscore and random characters to the end of the file name.

To fix this issue, we had to go back into the Content Organizer feature and make sure "Use SharePoint Versioning" was set in the "Duplicate Submissions" area.

1. Go to Site Settings / Content Organizer: Settings

2. Go down to the "Duplicate Submissions" area

3. Check "Use SharePoint versioning"

If you don't see the changes >> i.e. the versioning take affect and only show a single file name, and version history is only seen via the edit sub-menu, make sure the Central Admin Content Organizer Processing timer is set to what you need via:

Central Administration --> Monitoring --> Review job definitions --> Content Organizer Processing

Calculate age of SharePoint list itemEver wonder how you can calculate the age of the list items in SharePoint? The Today() function is not allowed in calculated fields, so what's the trick?

To find the value in an InfoPath form, we had to take a different approach than when using the DispForm.aspx page.

As usual, we loaded the .js file in the SharePoint site via a document library, and used either Firefox or Chrome to find the id of the textbox or element that stored the value we wanted to put into localStorage.

I had a request to create an autonumbering column in SharePoint 2010 for document numbering, and here is how we got the solution to work. I will use elementary school documents as an example.

The user could select one of up to 15 different school subjects when requesting a new document number, and the autonumber should stay in sync with the school subject...so there is no loss in the next available number for that particular school subject.

This is why I can't simply use the ID column that's associated with every list and append that to the eventual variable in a workflow.
