Here’s another one for the books.
Are you missing some of the Social Collaboration Web Parts? For example, following a SharePoint 2010 upgrade, I was expecting to find the Note Board, Organization Browser, Site Users, Tag Cloud and User Tasks and instead, was only able to pick 2 of them (Site Users and User tasks, remnants from 2007).
Figure 1 : Uh-Oh, are these missing?
Following a database attach upgrade of a site collection/content database from SharePoint 2007 to 2010, some of the web parts you’d expect to become available won’t be. I’ve seen this with others but for now I’m going to focus on the Social stuff.
This one is pretty easy. For the site collection in question, you are going to want to run the following:
stsadm -o activateFeature -name “PortalLayouts” -url “http://portal.wherever.com/sites/collectionname” –force
For the Powershell Equivalent, you would do the following:
You’ll want to disable the feature first, and then re-enable it.
Disable-SPFeature –Identity PortalLayouts –url http://portal.wherever.com/sites/collectionname
Enable-SPFeature PortalLayouts -Url http://portal.wherever.com/sites/collectionname
