As many of you upgrade your organization's SharePoint implementation to SharePoint 2010, you're finding that the site bugs are coming out of the woodwork. Here are the breakages you'll want to know about in advance to ensure a smooth upgrade. 

  1. SHAREPOINT DESIGNER CONTROLS
    Per popular request, Microsoft has introduced new granular restriction controls on use of SharePoint Designer after the SPD Infection issue of 2009. Please examine each site's SPD settings available in Site Settings to ensure they are set to your business needs ({YOUR PORTAL} /_layouts/SharePointDesignerSettings.aspx​). Additionally, even if you have not activated the Visual Upgrade, SPD 2010 is required to connect to your site. SPD 2010 is free from Microsoft and can be downloaded here in a 32 bit version and here in 64 bit version

  2. WHERE IS THE PEOPLE MANAGER IN 2010?
    Unfortunately, Microsoft seems to have eliminated the tool becaused many of their customers deploying SharePoint couldn't understand the difference between managing an account and managing the account's permissions. As such, all user management is done in the Groups Manager and one can still create, delete, and reset user account passwords here. A cool Portalogiks trick to see all of your portal's users is to add a zero after the Membership Group ID; this will show a list of all users in the way we are accustomed to.
    {YOUR PORTAL}/_layouts/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0

  3. EMAIL ENABLED LIBRARIES
    If you have any existing lists or libraries that are using the Incoming Email  feature it needs to be re-registered in SharePoint 2010. Simply access Library Settings > Incoming e-mail settings and click OK. No changes are required, just resubmit your orginal settings and your library can now receive email. 

  4. PLANNING BROWSER SUPPORT
    Microsoft has increased the number of browsers and operating systems that SharePoint 2010 can run on; a complete technical breakdown is is on the Microsoft browser requirements page. Important to note is that Internet Explorer 6 is no longer supported and that Internet Explorer 8 (x64 bit edition) has 14 issues when using SharePoint 2010 technologies. Only using Internet Explorer 8 (x84) in 32 bit mode will allow full use of all SharePoint 2010 features and is the recommended browser.

  5. HTML FILES DO NOT DISPLAY IN THE BROWSER IN SHAREPOINT 2010

Problem You'll Have: HTML Files stored in SharePoint libraries or called in IFrames will not display when clicked. Instead, any .HTM or .HTML page in SharePoint 2010 prompt users to download the file rather than to view it in the browser. Very frustrating. 

Problem Summary:
According to Kevin Davis at Microsoft "This is intentional behavior. In 2010 we've tightened up security for people with contribute access. Previously, a malicious user could upload a file with script in it that would get run as whoever browses to the page ie. an admin. In 2010 where we have a javascript object model, this would be a big problem if we didn't have this restriction in place."

Workaround Answer
: You can individually rename each and every HTML file from filename.htm to filename.aspx in every library on every site; or just change your web application's security settings. On your SharePoint web server, access Application Management > Manage web applications, select the web app and go General Settings. Next, toggle from Strict to Permissive and save.
