Title link points to portal, not to list RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an unusual problem. One of my SharePoint lists suddenly displays the title link differently, and we are not sure why. Let's say my SharePoint portal (WSS 3.0) is http://www.futility.com. My site, FOO, has a url of /tools/foo. So, the site url would be:


    My list is called BAR. So, the title link for the first item should be:


    Instead, the title link is:


    If you click the title, it takes you to the home page for the portal. The Source tag is correctly generated also. This is the same for all views, and both the Title link and the Title link with menu. I created a List Template with content, and created a new list both on the same site and on a different site on my staging server, same behavior: The portal URL + /?ID=1.

    What is causing this?

  • Hi,

    I am sure when you click on list item, it is navigating to the portal. I saw the simiar problem. In my case, the issue was with the view which was corrupted.

    Creating a completely new view and making that as a default view should resolve the problem.

  • Hi Christopher,

     As suggested by Rohan you can try creating a new view, if that doesn't solve the issue then propably you will have to move the data to new list.

    As in my case i had to create a new list and i copied the data there. (you can do this from Datasheet view).

    Hope this helps

  • As it turns out, it is not the view that was corrupted. Someone managed to delete the ListView Web Part on the DispForm.aspx page.  There is a fix from Microsoft here that corrected the problem:


    Basically, from SharePoint Designer you copy the code from a valid DispForm.aspx page and replace the ListName value with the GUID of your list.

    Here is the discussion from SharePoint StackExchange where I got the correct answer:
