Checking whether a file uploaded is of .doc or .docx file format

We can use the Java Script to check whether the file uploaded is of 2003 or 2007 word format. Hence we can handle the validation in the client side.
Java Script <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript"> function FileFormatValidate() { var uploadControl = document.getElementById('<%=FileUpload1.ClientID%>').value; //Regular Expression for the fileupload control. var reg = /^(([a-zA-Z]:)|(file://%7b2%7d/w )/$?)(//(/w[/w].*)) (.doc|.docx|.DOC|.DOCX)$/; //Checking if the file is empty or not if (uploadControl.length > 0) { //Checks with the control value. if (reg.test(uploadControl)) { return true; } else { //If the condition not satisfied shows error message. alert("Only .doc, docx files are allowed!"); return false; } …

What is 12 and 60 Hive in SharePoint ?

You'll hear SharePoint people talk about and refer to the "12 Hive" or the "60 Hive" regularly. We don't know what it is and we use it .

The "Hive" concept was coined by Todd Bleeker. So what does it mean? 12 Hive is the location where MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0 install their files on the file system. 
The same thing applies to 60 Hive which, as you may guess is the location of SPS 2003 and WSS 2.0 files. 

Locations: 12 Hive C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12
60 Hive C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60

Migration of WSS 3.0 to SharePoint Server 2010

I have some ideas grabbed from the internet regarding the migration of WSS 3.0 to SP 2010 server. My thoughts are as follows.
1. WSS 3.0 (with SP2) can be migrated to SharePoint Foundation 2010 directly.
2. The migration of WSS 3.0 (with SP2) to SharePoint Server 2010 is possible by attaching DB upgrade only. The direct migration is not possible.
3. But the WSS 3.0 (with SP2) can be migrated to MOSS 2007 first then to SP Server 2010

SharePoint Designer opens in Contributor mode.

We may face some situation, while editing the site using Sharepoint Designer, it will get open in Contributor mode and we will not be able to edit the site, eventhough we have the Site Collection Administrator (SCA) permission.

By default, Contribute permissions are assigned to the Site Collection Members group. Even though we are part of SCA group, if we are member of Site Collection members the Designer will open in Contributor mode.

To overcome this just disable the contributor settings in SharePoint designer by using the below steps:
1. Open the site in SharePoint Designer.
2. Select the Site Tab -> Contributor Settings.
3. Click on Disable Contributor settings button.

Now we will be able to edit the site.
