Can't view a SharePoint Document Library RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a WSS 3.0 installation. Recently one of the document libraries just went missing. When I navigate to through the left nav and open the library, I get a blank content page. However when I try other document libraries (for instance Shared Documents), they work fine and I get to see the library menu (New, Upload, Actions, Settings) and the sub folders and documents within...all of which are not visible in the library that I am having the issues with.

    Another thing...when I click on "View All Site Content", I do see the troubled document library and the number of items that it should contain. But each time i try to open it (document library), I get a blank content page without the library menu and sub folders along with the documents.

    Does anyone have any idea on how this could happen, and how to resolve this issue?

    Thanks

  • Hi Spawn10,

    From your description it seems to me you may have inadvertently closed/ deleted the list view web part. Not a big deal - you can restore / add the web part back from the left navigation > click the troubled library link > Site actions > Edit page. Check the blog link provided for details.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi, I have the same problem but with the 'Modern experience'. I tried your solution, by switching to classic experience, and then switching back to modern, but my library is still blank. I can only see the library title :/

    Any solution is greatly appreciated

    Thank you! :)
