Important steps to take if you’re running multilingual variations in SharePoint Online

The other day I described an issue where all of your Web Designer Galleries disappear. That article also suggested how to address this issue but the solution was short terms for me as I got the same problem next morning exactly at 10AM, and the morning after, and after … luckily I was able to “fix” the issue with my handy PowerShell script I wrote in the previous post. But what is the root cause?!?!?!

Well, the root cause is this;

-My site is running English and French variations
-This created two sub sites under root, one for English and one for French

The key to further discovery was the fact that the issue occurred exactly at the same time, therefore it must be a timer job.

Then someone sent me this article: Turn scripting capabilities on and off

Which basically says that there is this new cool feature allowing you to disable whole bunch of authoring functionality on the site with a simple toggle. It also says that this runs as a scheduled process every 24 hours.

You guessed it … I went down and turned off the default setting and things didn’t break the next morning.

1. Go to Admin Center | Settings:

step1

2. Next turn off the Self-Service-Created sites toggle to “Allow”

step 2

Turns out that variation sites are Self-Service-Created sites and this settings messes them up. So, we’re down to either not using this new setting or not using variations. Well there is always an option for MS to fix the issue – but I’m not going to hold my breath for that – however, I have reported the issue to Premier Support so we might be getting some action.

Enjoy!

Want to update your SharePoint app site logo without code?

With SharePoint 2013 and SPO, you get apps and often apps have their app site.
When you update your site custom look – all the apps get the same look and feel, there is just one problem – the logo you update on the root site doesn’t get updated on the app site.

Here is my custom logo on the root site:

main site logo

Here is how does one of the app site look like:

app site logo

There is no settings menu to change that but here is what works:

1. Navigate to the root of your site and click on “Title, Logo ….” under “Look and Feel”
2. Copy the URL of the settings page (second part as shown below) … /_layouts/15/prjsetng.aspx

app url

3. Change the logo on the page there and save the settings, result ….

new logo on the app site

Now your apps match your site, duh 😉

Enjoy!
