I have created a slide library, within a meeting workspace, and the slides do not show up when I open it up.

If I goto view all site content, it shows the correct number of items (slides) that should be within the slide library, but they are simply not there.

I am using the default view of ALL SLIDES, and I have also tried to add/change other views. Its running on Server 2008 R2, with MSSQL Server 2008 Standard, and SharePoint 2010 Enterprise.

I have tried publishing the slides directly from PP, and using the publish slide feature within SP itself. The uploads complete successufly, but the slides simply arent there.

Can you see them in explorer view?
Or by navigating to the site from a network location?
Can you access the path of one of the slides directly?

The explorer view is greyed out. When I try to put the url in for a paticular slide, it just bounces me back to the meeting workspace site.

Ok, I got it open in explorer view and found the slides. For some reason, sharepoint is adding a folder named "1" to the path for the slide library, however the slides when they get uploaded, are going to the folder path without the "1"

Really, really weird. If I manually copy them over tot he path with the folder named "1" in it, they show up, however the publish options put them in the wrong spot.

Add a list view to the the library that doesn't have any filters on it, then you should see all your items and the folder.
Then check your default thumbnail view to make sure there aren't any filters on it.
I would suggest moving your slides out of the folder and turning off folders for that library

This still isnt working.

Here are some examples of the problem.

I added a document library web part to a meeting workspace. here is what the web url looks like:
http://...../corporate/exec/staffmeetings/Oct2010/Document%20Library/Forms/AllItems.aspx

I created a test folder in that library, and it does not appear.

When I click the "Open with Explorer" button, this is the path that appears in windows explorer:

http://......./corporate/exec/staffmeetings/Oct2010/Document Library/1

If I remove the /1 from the explorer view (ie go up one level) I can see the test folder, however going through the browser shows nothing in the document library.
