When i try and edit the navigation of a certain site in MOSS 2007 i get an error:

"The page has been modified by another author on 23 May 2007 16:11:02 +0100."

...but this is the time i tried to save the changes. Nobody else is trying to edit the item. I've tried repeatedly and it never works with the same message.

and the URL for the folder in the editing section of Navigation under site settings is going very very wrong:

iswebteam/_layouts/viewlsts.aspx BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseTy BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType=0 BaseType...repeated, very odd

Can anybody help

Managed to fix this, although i swear we tried it before, by deleting everything from the navigation, saving and then re-creating. Very odd indeed.

Also had this one, after the migration of out beta environment into a rtm install (the paths changed).

It seems that if you use full url's instead of the reletive path's the error stay's away.

If I tried to use relative path's the error would come back...

Hello r.m. wallis.
I have been very interested in this thread as I, too have experienced this problem.
I have also been using relative links with the understanding that if I copy the site from the Top Level site structure page and re-name the copied site, full URL links were not updated correctly in all cases but relative links were.

I'll probably try this process of using the full path links on a test site and see if the problem is resolved.

One other interesting comment...... I tried editing the corrupted default.aspx page in SharePoint Designer 2007 to see if I could edit the code and fix the problem........

by accident (as I am just learning this program) I managed to find my way to the Naviagtion Site Map feature that lets you delete problematic quicklaunch headings as icons in a graphical site map. When I saved back to the server, it tidied up the code and fixed the problem without me having to recreate all of the links.

I have yet to repeat the process yet but it's well worth a look. There are also some neat training video resources on the Microsoft site (Just Google - sharepoint deisigner 2007) for SharePoint Designer which demonstrate the many neat things you can do with SharePOint sites without the need to tinker with code.

Hope this is useful and thanks forstarting this thread.

Regards
Mark
