SharePoint site suddenly Read Only even for Administrators!

So at some point in time something had happened to our SharePoint 2010 server to cause what appeared to be a total lock down on the SharePoint sites.
It must have been something strange, something weird, who knows what but it resulted in is ALL users, even site administrators and users with full administrative rights unable to do anything!  Nobody could add new documents or edit documents; nearly every single Document or Library option is greyed out!
The fix it would seem is performed via the central administration website for your server.
  1. Central Administration -> Site Collection Quotas and Locks.
  2. Select your site collection
  3. Change the Site Lock Information radio button from “Read-only” to “Not locked”
  4. OK the changes
 SharePoint 2010 Central Administration Site Collection Quotas and Locks Read-only
You don’t even need to reboot or issue an iisreset command.

User Profile Application Proxy failed to retrieve partitions from User Profile Application

This issue happens mostly on the Farm installation. Everyone will say to recreate the UPS, restart the server and then it should work fine. But if you have used the Custom properties and created a managed property in Search then its very difficult to recreate it and then to create it again. The better solution so far i have researched is the following Stop the User Profile Synchronization service Stop the User Profile Service Start the User Profile Service Start the User Profile Synchronization service. I hope the above should help you resolve the issues. Cheers.

Missing Site Pages and Site Assets libraries in SharePoint 2010

Ever wonder why sometimes when you create a site in SharePoint 2010,  the Site Pages and Site Assets libraries are not created, yet other times,  they are? The answer lies in a feature called Wiki Page Home Page,  which is enabled by default for Team Sites in SharePoint 2010.  However, other types of site templates may not activate that feature by default,  and if that’s the case, those libraries won’t be there. If you need them, you have a few options: Activate the “Wiki Page Home Page” feature. The feature will create  those libraries and will also create a wiki page and set it as the  home (welcome) page for your site. If you only need the libraries and don’t want your home page changed,  you can have SharePoint Designer 2010 create the libraries for you: Open SharePoint Designer. In the “Site Objects” pane on the left, click “Site Pages.” SP Designer  will load the contents of the Site Pages library and tell you it’s empty.  However, it also creates the Site Pag
