We have been using a lot of updatepanels (yeah, I know there is a performance issue but that is a different post) and, as usual, it worked great on my computer but not so great at the customer site. What the panel does is to process a search request without the postback. At the customer site we saw the information being sent to the search engine and the data coming back, but it would never show the results.\
To make a long story short, after many network traces and a rather long call with Microsoft support the answer was actually rather simple. Our customer was using a master page based on the "BlueBand" master page. However there is a small issue with this master page. If you look at it you will see
<body class="body" onload="BLOCKED SCRIPT_spBodyOnLoadWrapper();">
<WebPartPages:SPWebPartManager runat="server" />
<form runat="server" onsubmit="return _spFormOnSubmitWrapper();">
Turns out that this is wrong. By moving the "WebPartPages:SPWebPartManager" tag underneath the "form" tag everything worked fine!
Since we called Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 MOSS what are we going to call Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010? MSS is already taken as an acronymn (Microsoft Search Server) but I would bet it catches on in the general population. I was thinking we would call it "Mizz S" or "Missus". Maybe take some leeway with the acronym and call it "MiSS"? Any other ideas?
Well, assuming the release schedule that Microsoft just posted is actually correct we will. Now if only they would start releasing tidbits as to what we can expect in the product.
So no more MOSS, or SharePoint Portal Server. Now it is just SharePoint!
Other good tidbits in there other than SharePoint also.
