SharePoint 2010: Weird problem with CQWP with a custom itemstyle.xsl -file.

Posted on 2011-10-31

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hello. I created a custom CQWP which basically does nothing but deploys customized xsl-file. Everything works fine when my cqwp is viewed by admin, but when page is viewed by standard user I get an error saying: Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation [...]

 Error while executing web part: System.Xml.Xsl.XslLoadException: XSLT compile error. An error occurred
at (1,456). ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized.

Please recheck that you have published the ItemStyle.xsl file to everyone.
Try to perform check-out/check-in again and publish it as aprimary version.
I hope it helps.

Actually I realized that I did not deploy (vs) my custom itemstyle correct folder but created a new folder for my customized itemstyle. Perhaps ordinary users don't have enougth privileges to use that folder? Is it possible to give them authority to use that folder?

The content query web part works only with files from the Style Library/ XSL Style Sheets on the site collection level. You can change the name of the file to some custom name and place it to this directory.Then you need to redirect you web part to this file instead of the default item style file.
