SharePoint 2010: Branding : changing UIversion of SharePoint Site

changing UIversion from 4 to 3 will give a look and feel like SharePoint 2007 site.

changing it back to 4 will make Visual upgrade to SharePoint 2010 site.

You can change UIVersion using PowerShell:

$web = Get-SPWeb http://server/site/
$web.UIVersion = 3
$web.UIVersionConfigurationEnabled = $true

You can also change UIVersion using feature receiver:

Hope that helps…

  1. Be VERY careful using this script… After I ran this, I am getting some odd errors in central admin that have to do with ‘allowunsafeupdates’. It seems that using this script messes with that setting which is very hard to fix (at least I haven’t found a fix yet)

    1. Hi…what are the error did you get while using this code. Please let us know so that i can be prepare before it comes.

  2. I have attached my MOSS 2007 content DB to SPS 2010 farm with backward compatibility (v3) also copied my custom theme. it is working fine.

    i need to know besind UI related features like, ribbon and ajax etc what functional level fearues i wil miss. for example;
    does my document library will support document set feauture?
    can i use SPD 2010 with my v3 web app?
    will I be able to configure custom workflows in SPD (which were not possible in 2007) and attach to my document libraries in V3 web app? etc.

    thanks & regards,
