Create and Site Setting feature in Site Action cannot be found after restoring subsite in SharePoint 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We restored a sub site using Quest Recovery Manager in SharePoint 2007. It was successful but we lost the Create and Site Setting under Site Action with error "file not found". We also noticed that when we go to the "View All Content" it also gives error "file not found". I also went to the Users and Permissions (People Group and Advanced Permissions) and got the error "Cannot complete this action, please try this action".

    I appreciate any suggestion or solution regarding this. Thank you!

  • See if you can get to settings by appending _layouts/settings.aspx to your site URL

    see if you can get to people and groups advanced permissions by appending _layouts/user.aspx to your site url

    Try this:  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1809512/moss-2007-site-action-site-settings-have-disappeared

    this is the meat of the blog post:

    stsadm -o getsitelock -url http://server_name

    if it is not showing as 'none', it is locked. fix command:

    stsadm -o setsitelock -url http://server%5Fname -lock none

  • It could also be related to publishing infrastructure:

    These are the symptoms as defined by Microsoft"

    When you access a collaboration Web site, and  then you click Site Actions, you do not see some  expected menu items in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. The menu items that you do not see include the following:
    • Create Page
    • Create Site
    • Show Page Editing Toolbar
    • View All Site Content
    • View Reports
    • Manage Content and Structure "

  • Open the site in SharePoint designer, and revert the site to the default master page, that should do the trick.

    Here's how.
