This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 hotfix package that is dated August 13, 2013.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • In a claims-based web application, alert notifications are not sent to the user if the user has not signed in to the site for 24 hours.

  • When you use the alternate access mapping (AAM) URL redirection feature in SharePoint Server 2010, the query string is dropped during the redirecting process.

  • Assume that you restore a deleted folder that contains a file on a SharePoint Server 2010 site. When you run the content deployment job for the folder, the file in the restored folder is not displayed on the destination site.

  • Assume that you create a list view that has some customized XSL on a SharePoint Server 2010 page. When you browse to the page as an anonymous user, you receive the following error message:

    Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.

  • When you create a navigation menu that contains some sub links on a SharePoint Server 2010 site, the sub links are displayed as a white box in the navigation menu in Internet Explorer 7.

  • When you access a page on a SharePoint Server 2010 site collection, the navigation menu is not displayed if the content database of the page is not created by a system account and is set as read-only.

  • Assume that you make a minor change to a page on a SharePoint Server 2010 site that has the page history feature enabled. For example, you replace or delete a rollup image on the page. In this situation, when you use the page history feature on the page, you encounter an unexpected error.

  • When you trigger an automatic approval workflow on a SharePoint Server 2010 site from a non-default zone, the approval email message includes a URL that uses the default zone.

  • When you move a file in Explorer View in SharePoint Server 2010, the changed date of the file is not updated correctly.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You create a workflow in a document library on a subsite in a SharePoint Server 2010 site collection.

    • You edit and then save the workflow on the root site collection in SharePoint Designer 2010.

    • You update the Workflow Settings page of the document library.

    In this situation, the workflow association is lost.

  • When you zoom the web browser to less than 99% in Project Web App, the data on the left side does not align horizontally with the data on the right side.

  • When you use the filter dropdown in a view that is based on an indexed column for a list on a SharePoint Server 2010 site, you receive the following error message:

    Cannot show the value of the filter. The field may not be filterable, or the number of items returned exceeds the list view threshold enforced by the administrator.

  • When you download a virus-infected file from a SharePoint Server 2010 farm, you receive the following misleading error message:

    The virus scanner has encountered an error in scanning the file. Please try opening the file directly from the browser, or contact your administrator.

  • When you perform an auditable action on a SharePoint Server 2010 site, the auditable action stops responding.

  • Assume that you configure the rich text edit feature for a SharePoint Server 2010 site. After you apply a font setting to some text, the font setting is not applied to the text on the site. For example, after you apply a font setting that contains full-width characters to some text, the text is not displayed as expected on the site.
