This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 hotfix package that is dated October 8, 2013.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you use a publishing template on a SharePoint Server 2013 site, you cannot add a search box to the XsltListViewWebParts web part.

  • Assume that a blog contains more than 11 entries. When you go to the next page of the blog in the Archives view, the title of the page is displayed incorrectly. Additionally, you may receive the following error message:

    There are no posts in this month.

  • When you try to join a custom group on a SharePoint Server 2013 site, you receive the following error message:

    Sorry something went wrong.

  • As a search service administrator on a SharePoint Server 2013 farm, you cannot click the Query Rules button under the Queries and Results heading in the Navigation pane to view query rules.

  • Assume that you do not install or enable the DragUpload ActiveX control in Windows Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9. When you click the New document button on a SharePoint Server 2013 document library in this situation, Microsoft InfoPath does not start.

  • When you follow a document on a SharePoint Server 2013 site that has alternate access mappings enabled, the link to the document points to the default zone instead of the alternate access mappings zone.

  • After you use SharePoint Designer 2013 to add a Dataform web part to a SharePoint Server 2013 page and to enable grouping on one or more fields, you cannot expand or collapse the group.

  • When you trigger an automatic approval workflow on a SharePoint Server 2013 site from a nondefault zone, the approval email message includes a URL that uses the default zone.

  • Assume that you add the Tag Cloud web part to a page on a SharePoint Server 2013 site that has the Save metadata on this list as social tags feature enabled. When you try to add a term in the Enterprise Keywords column for an item, the term is not added, and no tag is displayed on the Tag Cloud web part.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You create a SharePoint Server 2013 document library that has the versioning and "required check out" features enabled.

    • You upload a document to the document library.

    • You check in the document and submit a version comment.

    • You open the version history of the document.

    In this situation, the version comment that you submitted is blank.

  • The number of downloads is not removed from the details page of an app.

  • Assume that you enable the WOPI Binding feature for a .pdf file on a SharePoint Server 2013 server. When you click the Open button on the .pdf file callout, you receive an error message.

  • When you add a client-side-connected web part that provides data to a consumer web part on a SharePoint Server 2013 site, the web part does not work in Internet Explorer 10.

  • Assume that you create a SharePoint Server 2013 site that contains a Managed Metadata Service (MMS) column. When you use the "multiple file upload" control to upload a document to the site, the values for calculated columns are not populated.

  • When you change the Ipersonalizable property of a web part on a SharePoint Server 2013 site, the property is not saved correctly.

Additionally, this update adds a new IT control to the SharePoint Designer client. This control helps you migrate WF3 workflows to a WF4 workflow environment.
