I am an unabashed pack rat and organizer. These traits come in very handy when you work with computers and software, because you need those skills to manage the phenomenal amount of information at our disposal. Coupled with some pugnacious researching, I’ve managed to accumulate a fairly large repository of URLs to valuable SharePoint resources.
Note: this list was built from an IE export; links at the root folder level are listed last after any sub-folders, so sometimes the parent folder might be misleading. Also, I’m not going to bother fixing some of the other oddities from my paste job, like the crazy italics because of indented sections…

i want to create a user group in AD and assign it to 3 sites in sharepoint portal server subsites,(in this group i have some users)but i cant manage such group.
is there any solution.
tanks for your repling”

Masood: What exactly do you mean by "can’t manage such group"? Do you not have permissions to modify the security settings for those sites? Adding domain groups is just a matter of adding DOMAINGROUPNAME as a member.
Thu 5/5/2005 7:19 AM masood
I have permissions to midofy the security setting for those groups.My question is how i can create a user group in active directory and assign it to reader group of sharepoint portal server,i have some users with same permissions,i want to add them in a group and assign it to 3 sites,i have created a group in AD and assign it to user group of sharepoint portal server but the users which defined in that group cant access to portal site!
thanks for your repling.”

Masood: If you bundle these users into one AD group, you have to add that group into the appropriate site role for EACH site that you want to grant that group membership to. There’s no group other than SPS Administrators that has blanket access to all WSS sites.

I have a question. We recently went to Sharepoint for our intranet. I am trying to figure out a way to use a page as a template within a workspace. If I open the site in frontpage and open a page and save it with a different name, it adds the page to the workspace, but all the web parts mirror the orriginal ones. When I add information to one page, all the pages that were created from the orriginal update to have the same information. I want them each to be unique, but have the same layout. Can you help me out?”
Thu 6/2/2005 4:00 PM Eric Legault http://blogs.officezealot.com/legault
“Joseph: I think what you want to do is create a Web Part Page (from the list in the Create page). You can specify the layout for the page from the predefined layouts that the wizard offers, and then add the web parts you need. This page is oddly enough stored as a file in the Document Library you specify.
To add a link to your site links bar along the top (Home – Documents and Lists – Create, etc.), you have to edit that bar with Front Page 2003 to point to the web part page file in the Document Library you saved it to.
Another approach is to use the Dynamic Web Templates feature in Front Page. You can lock down certain regions to prevent editing in any pages created from these DWT, and the pages are saved as regular .html files that don’t need to be saved in a Document Library. However, these pages are different from Web Part Pages as they don’t give you the Web Part Zones, but you can add web parts to the page (then they become .aspx pages).”
