Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingLayoutPage Error

Apr 7, 2010 at 11:06 PM


We are trying to use the faceted search page in WSS 3.0 and MS Enterprise Search 2008 Express but we are getting the following error.

The base type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingLayoutPage' is not allowed for this page. The type is not registered as safe.

Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services.

MS Enterprise search and all our WSS sites are working okay.

Does anybody know how to fix this problem?

Yes - you won't be able to use the publishing page layouts with WSS 3.0 because the Publishing Infrastructure is a feature of MOSS 2007 Standard.  You will be able to integrate the Faceted Search web parts on a standard (i.e. non-publishing) web part page however.  This should work fine with WSS 3.0 and Search Server Express.

Kind Regards,

Hi Shaun,

We are running WSS 3.0 with MS search 2008 express and I had to working before on our test environment but that hardware crashed so we lost that setup.

Is there anything special you need to setup other then what is published in the faceted setup documentation?
