Missing Lists and Libraries on the SharePoint Create Page (create.aspx)

If you find yourself missing lists and libraries on the create page in SharePoint and you’re wondering where where your WIKI library, contacts list, announcement list, calendar, and all the other goodies went, you’ll need to check to insure that the features are enabled on your site.  Here’s a case where there are plenty of custom lists, but not many of the out-of-the-box lists.

SharePointCreateScreenMissingItems

It’s very possible you created your site with a publishing portal template and all the other goodies were not turned on by default.  To correct this, you’ll need to navigate to the Site Features page under Site Administration.

SelectSiteFeatures

From here, you can see that the standard features and team collaboration lists are not activated.

ActivateFeatures

So, activate the standard site features and team collaboration lists.

You should be able to create all the lists and libraries you want!

The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebApplicationProvisioningJobDefinition threw an exception

I was getting this error when trying to extend SharePoint to another web application:

The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebApplicationProvisioningJobDefinition (ID 22631de2-0c21-4e1b-aa9c-12e4f60a18f6) threw an exception. More information is included below.

"SharePoint – eicomsp4:80" contains illegal character ‘:’.

Turns out that, somewhere along the way, SharePoint allowed a colon in the name of another extension that was now causing the timer job to fail.  I also had to delete the "run once" timer job that was associated with the failed extension attempt.  Weirdness.
