Web content deployment walkthrough and TechNet topics


Hi, I’m Cern McAtee, a technical writer for Office SharePoint Server 2007. I’m pleased to announce that the Office SharePoint Server 2007 content team and the Global Readiness team have combined efforts to write and publish a new walkthrough guide for content deployment: End-to-End Content Deployment Walkthrough.

This downloadable guide is aimed at IT pros planning to use content deployment with their enterprise sites using Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. The guide takes you through the steps for setting up source and destination site collections, creating a deployment path and job, and then running the job to see how it populates the destination site collection with the content from the source site collection. One important thing to note when it comes to implementing content deployment is that when you first set it up, the destination site collection must be empty. You can create the destination site collection using either the Blank site template, or by using the Stsadm createsite operation to create an empty site.

In addition to the walkthrough, we have also published a set of topics about Administering Web content management that cover publishing and content deployment operations, as well as cache settings and profiles, document conversion, and variations. These topics are intended for IT pros who manage publishing and content deployment for their enterprise sites.

But wait, there’s more! We have also launched the Web Content Management Resource Center for SharePoint Server 2007. The center resources for IT pros to use in planning and implementing Web content management solutions. You’ll find links to featured content on TechNet, community resources, and other blogs, as well as to videos, Webcasts, and podcasts.

We look forward to hearing from you and to continuing to improve this content in partnership with you!

    Hi Peter,

    We’ve tested the RSS feed on our end, and we’re receiving the entire post. Is the feed still not working for you?

    Hello, may you please set your RSS feed to display the full posts? I would prefer to read them in my feed reader, not have to click to visit the site every time I want to read an article. It would aid usability greatly, and I believe is something you can configure in your blog settings. Thanks, Peter

    Hi folks,

    We have changed the RSS feed settings, so you should now see the whole post, rather than the snippet.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I agree with the previous poster.

    It’s very irritating to need to click further (and wait a while) to see the full item if the RSS feeder is (as mine is) set to show the whole content.

    Please amend your settings.
