SharePoint Designer Error – InfoPath Cannot Save the following form http://Site.Domain.Local/Library the document library was either renamed or deleted.

You might think how this could happen when you can simply access the library and open items inside it but just unable to publish the form via InfoPath designer. This isn’t related to library or SharePoint configurations at all.

If you are running SPD on a Server operating system, one single feature called “Desktop Experience” could be missing there and installing that will solve this for you.

Resolution: Install Desktop Experience if you are opening SPD on a Windows Server

Open up Server manager and proceed to “Add Roles and Features” wizard. Under the User Interfaces and Infrastructure category, select Desktop Experience component and proceed to install it.

Control/Hide SharePoint Top Ribbon to an Specific Audience

Mostly in SharePoint Public Sites Scenarios, You will look for a solution where to hide the Admin Ribbon of the SharePoint Site. Basically the site itself should not have the Admin panel shown to anonymous users accessing from outside which can be only shown up on the level of permissions of the user logged in to the Site (Mostly Internal Domain Users)

If you have developed you own Masterpage, this has to be done there.

To do this, Simply open the Site using SharePoint Designer. Locate your Master Page (which has been set as the Default) Find below two Controls in MasterPage.

Dont forget to Keep a Copy of the Master page before you start editing.

Master

Then Edit the PermissionString from its defined value (ManageWeb) to the new value based on your permission requirements. In this sceanrio it defined to “AddListItems” Value which is the new permission Level. from now on, the Ribbon will be only Visible for thoese who has AddListItems permision Level. To any other level it will be hidden.

In Below sceanrio, Anonymous User wont be able to see the Ribbon as it defined to hide for everyone does not have “AddListItems” Permission level. However you have to carefully look at the list of permission levels supported in “SecurityTrimControl” which has been listed below.

———————————————— Grey Bar (Ribbon Row)

<SharePoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl ID=”HideRibbonRow” runat=”server” PermissionsString=”ManageWeb”>

document.getElementById(“s4-ribbonrow”).style.display = “block”;

</SharePoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl>

———————————————— Blue Bar (Suit bar)

SharePoint Designer Issue: Items are Indicates as Checked Out When It is not

Faced an strange issue in my SharePoint Designer 2013 when I was trying to Check in Some files. I had a SharePoint site exposed to Anonymous users and latest changes needed a publish. Not really sure where this issue caused and eventually I was not able to Check-In the files.

Restart of the Computer of SPD Did not help at all which finally turned me in to flushing WebSiteCache

Path is – C:\Users\manoj\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache

Flushing out this folder content and then restarting SPD leaded to an smooth operation of check-in in and out files without any issues.
