February 10, 2015 update for SharePoint Foundation 2013 (KB2910928)

Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2013

This article describes update KB2910928 for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 that was released on February 10, 2015. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and Fixes


Fixes the following issues:
  • Assume that you set an alert on a SharePoint Foundation 2013 announcements list. When an alert email is triggered by an announcements list item that contains many lines of content, the text in the mail body is formatted as strikethrough.

    Note After you install the hotfix package, you have to run the "stsadm –o updatealerttemplates -url SiteURL" command to have this fix take effect.
  • After you install this hotfix package, you can convert path-based site collections to host-named site collections by using the SPSite.Rename(Uri newUri) method.
    Additionally, this hotfix also introduces the SPSite.Rename(Uri newUri, bool skipSiteMapUpdate) method. The default value of the skipSiteMapUpdate parameter is false, if you set the value to true, the method does not update the sitemap during the rename process. Therefore, you should use the SPContentDatabase.RefreshSitesInConfigurationDatabase method to refresh the configuration database after the rename process is complete.
  • Assume that you configure the site quota for a SharePoint Foundation 2013 site collection. Also, you enable the feature to send site storage notification email messages (the email messages are sent when the site quota reaches a specific value.) When you receive a notification email message, the email message contains a link that links to the wrong page.
  • Assume that you create a SharePoint Foundation 2013 workflow by using SharePoint Designer 2013. Additionally, the workflow contains an action that retrieves data from the "Current Site URL" field in the "Workflow Context" data source. When you run the workflow, the value retrieved from the "Current Site URL" field is missing a forward slash ("/") at the end of the URL.
  • Assume that you add an XsltListView web part to a SharePoint Foundation 2013 page, and the web part contains a link to another SharePoint Foundation 2013 site. When you click the link, you may be redirected to the wrong page.
  • Assume that you browse to a SharePoint Foundation 2013 page on a touch-enabled device. When you touch a tile on a promoted links web part, the tile does not work as expected. For example, it does not open another page.
  • The page navigation control does not work when you try to view more replies to a discussion in SharePoint Foundation 2013.
  • Assume that you create a calculated site column, and the formula refers to another column where the name does not contain a space. When you edit the calculated site column, the square brackets around the column name for the formula are missing.
  • Assume that you browse to a SharePoint Foundation 2013 page that contains certain reusable content. After you edit and save the page, you may find duplicate reusable content on the given page.
  • Assume that you create an indexed lookup column in a SharePoint Foundation 2013 list. When you filter the list items by using the "[Empty]" filter option of the lookup column, no result is returned.
  • Assume that you browse to a SharePoint Foundation 2013 page by using Windows Internet Explorer 10. When you insert Korean characters into a text field by using Korean IME, you cannot insert some specific characters by pressing the SHIFT key.
  • Assume that you create a SharePoint Foundation 2013 page, and the URL of the page contains non-ASCII characters, for example, Russian characters. When you check the Popularity Trends report, the usage event statistics of the given page may be incorrect.
  • Assume that you let a SharePoint Foundation 2013 document library receive emails. When you send an email that contains one or more attachments, the attachments may not be saved.
  • When you open a SharePoint Foundation 2013 form that contains a multiple-line text column, the CPU utilization may increase to 100 percent on the SharePoint Foundation server. This causes the server to slow down and results in a poor experience on SharePoint overall.
  • Updates SharePoint Foundation 2010 to reflect the redefined time zones of Russia. See the September 2014 time zone update for Russia for more information about the redefined time zones.
  • Assume that you export a calendar event from a SharePoint Foundation 2013 calendar list. When you open the exported item in Outlook, some special characters in the item body may appear incorrectly.
  • Assume that you configure an alert for a discussion item of a SharePoint Foundation 2013 discussion list, and you select the Send notification immediately option during the setup. When you receive an alert email, the Posted By field is blank.
  • Assume that you create an XML document based on an InfoPath form in a SharePoint Foundation 2013 document library, and this form executes some additional code on the back end. When you try to copy or edit the XML document, you may receive the "The form cannot run the specified query" error message.
  • Some required fields in SharePoint Foundation 2013 list forms are not indicated as required to users of assistive technologies.
  • Assume that you browse a SharePoint Foundation 2013 site by using the keyboard together with an assistive technology tool, such as Windows Narrator. You edit a calendar item, and then you move the keyboard selection to the check box of the All Day Event option or the Recurrence option. When you select the check box by pressing the SPACEBAR, the keyboard selection moves to the Address bar of the browser. This behavior prevents you from editing the calendar item.
  • Assume that you browse a SharePoint Foundation 2013 site by using the keyboard together with an assistive technology tool, such as Windows Narrator. Also, you set the keyboard layout to German (Germany). In this situation, you cannot quickly move the keyboard selection to the ribbon by using the keyboard shortcuts CTRL+[ or CTRL+].

    Note After you install this hotfix package, you can quickly move the keyboard selection to the ribbon by using the new keyboard shortcut CTRL+F6.
  • When you add a new item to a SharePoint Foundation 2013 list that has workflow enabled. If you attach a file where the file name contains some special characters, the workflow may not start. Additionally, you may receive the following error message:
    The file or folder name contains characters that are not permitted, Please use a different name.
  • You may be unable to reply to a discussion in SharePoint Foundation 2013. Additionally, you receive the following error message.
    Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You add a document set content type to a SharePoint Foundation 2013 document library.
    • You add the "Link to a Document" content type to the document set.
    • You create a new document set to the document library.
    • You open the new document set, click FILES, and then click Link to a Document from the drop-down list for the New Document button.
    In this scenario, you may be redirected to the wrong webpage.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a SharePoint Foundation 2013 publishing site.
    • You create a sub site by using the Publishing Site template.
    • You create a link to the sub site.
    • You rename the sub site.
    In this scenario, you cannot browse to the sub site by clicking the given link.

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You configure a SharePoint Foundation 2013 site to run in SharePoint 2010 compatibility mode.
    • You install SharePoint Foundation 2013 Service Pack 1.
    • You browse the site by using Windows Internet Explorer 8 or an earlier version.
    In this scenario, when you move the pointer over a global navigation item, the drop-down menu does not appear.
