Revert SharePoint 2010 UI to 2007

I have a SharePoint 2010 Foundations site I just created. It shows up with the 2010 user interface, however the users would like to use the 2007 interface. Doing some searching I found a PowerShell command to revert the 2010 look to 2007 however I get errors when I run. I believe it is because I'm not sure how to adapt the command to my setup.

Here is the PowerShell comand I found:

Get-SPSite http://machinename/sites/V3UI | Get-SPWeb "webname" | Foreach{$_.UIVersionConfigurationEnabled=1;$_.UIVersion=3;$_.Update();}

Open in new window


My site is https://sharepoint.domain.com/mysite

My server's name is "spserver".

How do I enter this command to convert my sites 2010 look back to the 2007? I don't have the option to do it in the SharePoint GUI any longer.

Thanks.

You need to run that from the SharePoint PowerShell Console.

Simply replace the http://machinename/sites/V3UI with your Site Collection name , so if your site collection is at the root

http://yourServername

if you are running this on port 8080 , it would be  http://yourServername:8080


the webname attribute is the name your site ( that is the display name and normally that does not include spaces)

Get-SPSite http://machinename/sites/V3UI | Get-SPWeb "webname" | Foreach{$_.UIVersionConfigurationEnabled=1;$_.UIVersion=3;$_.Update();}



If you need more help , send back the Site Collection URL , or simply send the URL to the site you want to change and I can reformat the command to it .

best of luck.

PS: this script is harmless , you cannot break anything.
