minor issue with wiki pages and proposed solution

Jun 15, 2011 at 3:24 AM

Have branded a site based on your master page (thank you) for some time. I noticed recently that when saving a Wiki page major versioning turned on (but not require check-out for editing), the user was prompted by "You must specify a value for the required field".
After some research, I found reference to a great blog post by Sanna Pehkonen  who noted an issue with the way the PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea tag was hidden. I wanted to contribute to your project by suggesting an alteration that would resolve this issue - based on her post.

Sanna suggests hiding the PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea with CSS rather than through a visable="False" attribute.

Style sheet

   display: none;

 master page

<!-- ===== Hidden Placeholders ========================== -->
<asp:Panel cssclass="hiddenpanel" runat="server">

this worked and resolved the issue. an alternative without CSS would be

master page

<!-- ===== Hidden Placeholders ========================== -->
<asp:Panel style="display:none" runat="server">

I like this idea, I might hide the rest with the hidden panel though. I like the fact that the hidden panel outputs no HTML. But you are right this is a bug that has been noticed. I'll have to tweak for the next version
