SharePoint, IE8, and the Explorer View

Comments Off on SharePoint, IE8, and the Explorer View


It’s been a while since I’ve posted something SharePoint related so here’s a quick tip that started on Twitter.  One individual whom I follow was asking if there was a fix for the Explorer View in a document library over SSL for those using IE8.  That is our setup, SharePoint accessed over SSL and I run IE8.  I told her I usually have to authenticate to open the view and the transfer is typically slow.  We received a follow-up tweet from @Hugheser saying to check the LAN configuration settings in IE.

LAN Configuration Settings

You want to uncheck that first box if it’s enabled and you’ll see an a significant increase in transfer speed.

Comments Off on New Sharepoint managed paths

Cross-posted from the Sharepoint Blog:

As administrators, we are always thinking of ways to classify and name things in order to find things effeciently.  In an effort to bring some order and structure into the Sharerpoint environment, we have created a few additional managed paths. 
Great you may be thinking, what’s a managed path?  Managed paths are URLs we have defined where we can put requested sites.  For example, is a managed path, we have defined that sites can be created in /sites/.  My sites are a managed path, /personal/.
We have created 3 additional buckets a site can be created or migrated to:
  • cmte – Designed for University wide committee spaces
  • research – Designed for research focused site
  • grants – Designed for spaces who are working on one off or perpetual grant applications
