10 SharePoint 2007 Admin shortcuts

Posted by sharepoinTony on November 18, 2009

Shortcuts that can help you get to pages you need when working on your SharePoint 2007 sites.

Add these to end of url for site or page to get to the page you need:
  1. Save Site as Template: _layouts/savetmpl.aspx
  2. Jump to Settings page: _layouts/settings.aspx
  3. Site Template Gallery : _catalogs/wt/Forms/Common.aspx
  4. List Template Gallery: _catalogs/lt/Forms/AllItems.aspx
  5. Web Part Gallery: _catalogs/wp/Forms/AllItems.aspx
  6. Master Page Gallery: _catalogs/masterpage/Forms/AllItems.aspx
  7. Add web parts to any page: ?PageView=Shared&ToolPaneView=2
  8. Manage your Alerts (2003 & 2007): _layouts/1033/MySubs.aspx (2003) and _layouts/SubEdit.aspx (2007)
  9. Web Part Page Maintenance: ?contents=1
  10. IISReset can get annoying, every time you deploy new functionality you hit IISReset, and you wait.

A much quicker way is to recycle only the application pool instead of issuing an IISReset. In order to recycle just the application pool, you can use the following command:

cscript c:\windows\system32\iisapp.vbs /a “[App_Pool_Name]” /r

Added bonus:

Application Pool Recycle Utility
This makes the pages load quickly after recycling the pool or doing an IISReset.
