Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

The Guide of a MOSSLover Becky Isserman's Blog

I just spent a good portion of today of part of yesterday on a really weird issue.  Our sites had some custom branding for a client and the quick launch displayed perfectly for the root site.  When you clicked on all the subsites the quick launch bar would not display.  Myself and one of the branding guy’s at Planet, Jaimie Luetjen, were spinning our wheels (and I don’t think it helps that I have a cold).  Finally Jaimie is able to login to the site and he threw up a live meeting, so we could figure it out.  After several hours we decide to create another page and see what happens on one of the subsites.  The quicklaunch existed on that page, but not on the default page.  So we started playing around and Jaimie realized that the settings for the template for subsites was set to only include a page layout with body and no quicklaunch.  He set this so that the webpart page would display instead and I went back and reset all the page layouts.  So morale of the story if you see the same issue make sure the default for that template for all your subsites is set to a page layout that includes a quicklaunch.  Sometimes I feel like I’ve been steamrolled by SharePoint and other days I feel awesome.  Today I think I learned something, but I feel like I spent hours spinning my wheels around in circles.  Hopefully one of you guys learned from this blog post.
