Slide Library will not display. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to MOSS 2007's slide presentation webpart and all the tutorials seem straight forward, however, I am not successful with this. I have a collaboration site, I added a Slide Library, used the Upload feature "Publish Slides" and uploaded the PowerPoint. It seprated my presentation into individual slides. Next, in the default page (this still "out of the box" stadard collab portal page) I clicked on Site Action -> Edit Page -> Add a Web Part and selected "This Week in Pictures". Then I edited the webpart and changed Image Library Name to the name of the Slide Library. This resulted in an error "You may not have sufficient permissions or the "Slides" does not exist. Create an image library in this site and then modify Web Part properties."

    I've been at this for two days and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any one has any usable advise? Thanks,

  • Hi,

    I operate according to what you said above and I met with the same error message like you . Then I change my operations as the error message tips .

    I create an Image Library named ‘Image Library’ and upload some pictures into it  .Then browse to the Slide library page and do the following :

    Click Site Actions >Edit Pages >Add a Web Part> This week in  Pictures>Edit>Modify  shared Web Parts . Change the ‘Image Library Name’ under the ‘slide show’ field  to ‘Image Library’ .Then click ok. After  Exit Edit Mode we will see the latest uploaded picture on the Slide Library page .And the error message will not show up again .

     

    If I have any misunderstanding of your problem ,Please feel free to let me know .

    Please let me know the results of these actions at your earliest convenience.

    Best Regards

  • Thanks for your time to reply. This what I did which is exactly what you did.

     

    Here is my environment:

    Development client: Win 7

    SharePoint Server: Win 2003 (Virtual), MOSS 2007, Framework 3.5 and 4.0, SQL Server 2005 on separate Win 2003 server.

    My Active Directory account has admin privileges.

     

    Here are my steps:

     

     

    SharePoint Collaboration Portal: Site Action -> View All Site Content -> Create -> Slide Library ->

    Name:  Daily Updates

    Description: blank

    Quick Launch: Yes

    Create version: no  ->

     

    Upload -> Publish Slides -> PowerPoint dialog opens, selected a file called Default.mht -> ten slides uploaded.

     

    In the default page -> Site Actions -> Edit Page –> Add a Web Part -> This Week in Pictures -> Modify Shared Web Part.

    Changed Image Library Name to Daily Updates.

     

    Resulting Error: You may not have sufficient permissions or the "Daily Updates" does not exist. Create an image library in this site and then modify Web Part properties.

    I wonder if it’s a permisison issue.

  • Hi EJM,

     

    I understand what steps  you have  done . Since ‘Daily Updates’ is a Slide Library not an Image library , when you change the  Image Library Name to Daily Updates ,it will send you the error message . The function of a ‘This week in pictures’ web part is  to  display one image from an Image Library and links to a slide show where users can see all of the images in the Image Library .

    So here you  need to create an Image Library which you didn’t do in your previous steps . To create an Image Library you can refer to  the steps to create a slide library . Then upload some pictures into it (Note: These pictures must be in the root of the image library to display in a slideshow, not in subfolders ). After doing all this we can see the latest uploaded picture in the Slide Library page .

    If I have any misunderstanding of your problem ,Please feel free to let me know .

     Please let me know the results of these actions at your earliest convenience.

    Best Regards

  • Hi Ming, Thanks for your explanation, it confirmed what I was afraid of. I was under the impression that the webpart will automatically cycle images. Further I undertood from a text that you can use the slide library to cycle PowerPoint presentation in SharePoint like a presentation.

    I did get it to work the way you explained it, the way it supposed to work, but ultimatelly that is not what I want. I want to be able to run a slideshow of PowerPoint presentation inside a SharePoint webpart taking advantage of the SharePoint's ability to store PowerPoint slides.

    I would guess I'm not the first one to think of this, but I've at this all week and have not found anything that would help me. I wonder if there is a dll that or some API that I can use to write a custom web part?

    Thanks,
