SPS2003 Add Link to Site not working

Today something odd started happening. When the page comes up to Add a link to Site for the site creation process ,I can fill out the information but when I click Ok, the Ok button goes grey and the page does nothing. After that I can enter the URL for the new site and continue to setup the site template and eventually enter the site. However when I go back to the Site Directory the site is nowhere to be found.

The only bit of information I’ve been able to find on this problem is this MS article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934229, which has no solution as of yet.

I did just change the login and password that the Configuration Database Administration Account, Default Content Access Account, and Portal Site Application Pool Identity were using. That is the only thing that has been changed recently though. Has anyone come across this before? Thanks.

… time passes slowly,

… Next day:

Check to see if you have windows server 2003 sp2 installed. if so try removing it. That worked for me.

Hi,

I had the same problem and didn’t feel like removing SP2 so I came up with
the following solution:

1. Open this file in a text editor:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\TEMPLATE\[LCID]\SPSSITES\LISTS\SITESLST\NewForm.aspx

(Replace [LCID] with your locale identifier, 1033 for English)

2. Find this code fragment:

<SPSWC:InputFormButtonSection runat=”server”>
<SPSWC:InputFormButtonAtBottom ID=”ButtonOk” runat=”server”
TextLocId=”Page_OkButton_Text”/>
<SPSWC:InputFormButtonAtBottom ID=”ButtonCancel” runat=”server”
TextLocId=”Page_CancelButton_Text” visible=”false” />
</SPSWC:InputFormButtonSection>

3. Replace it with this code fragment:

<SPSWC:InputFormButtonSection runat=”server”>
<!– Workaround for WIN2003SP2 issue:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934229
–>
<input type=”button” value=”         OK         ”
onclick=”document.forms[0].submit()” />
<!– <SPSWC:InputFormButtonAtBottom ID=”ButtonOk” runat=”server”
TextLocId=”Page_OkButton_Text”/> –>
<!– End workaround –>
<SPSWC:InputFormButtonAtBottom ID=”ButtonCancel” runat=”server”
TextLocId=”Page_CancelButton_Text” visible=”false” />
</SPSWC:InputFormButtonSection>

4. Thats it;-)

Hope this helps…

Neal

Good afternoon,

At last a fix / Work around for a problem that MS seems to be unwilling to resolve!!! 🙂

This needs to be highlighted to everyone else having the same problem.

Thanks Neal, god job…. Lets just hope MS can now do something to resolve this with a hotfix!

Cheers

John.
