SharePoint Designer in Contributor Mode

June 26, 2010    , , ,
SharePoint Designer Automatically switches to Contributor Mode? Another day, when I was trying to open a SharePoint site in SharePoint Designer, it automatically opened in the contributor mode! So I tried: Prompt for user name and password security settings in IE, then re-opened the SPD. Yes, It prompted me the user name and pass and opened in the SAME contributor mode although I have FARM Admin & Site collection admin access rights. Finally I found the solution: To get around that, go to, SharePoint Designer’s Menu: Site >> Contributor Settings and then click on the Disable Contributor Settings button. It worked like a charm! :-) In case, This doesn't work for you then, Try adding your account in site owners group.

Yes, it happened today morning. I'm unable to do a search in my MOSS website. When tried search, I got an error: "The search request was unable to connect to the search service."  when I tried to do a full crawl, then it hangs there with "Starting" stage, Then I tried to stop and start the Office SharePoint search in Central admin, but I cannot stop it. It's status shows "stopping". Hmmm Here are the things you can try go get this issue solved: stsadm -o osearch -action stop stsadm -o osearch -action start Or You can try: net stop oSearch net start oSearch If you still run into the same issue, then try the following: psconfig -cmd services -install This will configure SharePoint search again!!!

SharePoint site gave an error message in browser "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion" . Resolution: Not sure, What went wrong, But I did a Application pool recycling, which made the site up!!! When the same error occurred during a Search, I Restarted "Search Query" and "Site Settings" Services from Services on Server to fix this issue.
