Alternative for PublishingWeb.IsPublishingWeb
Just today I wondered why something was not working with a specific custom code and was able to track the problem down by debugging to using PublishingWeb.IsPublishingWeb -method to a web in another site collection with read-permissions. The error message was somewhat puzzling, something like:
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.GetWebUrl(Guid gWebId, String bstrSiteUrl)…..
Then I remembered that my colleaque Tomi Tavela had resolved figuring out whether the SPWeb object is a publishing web or not in an anonymous scenario in this post Anonymous Access and Publishing Web Pages List.
So what I did following Tomi’s approach was to implement an alternative for the awkwardly behaving PublishingWeb.IsPublishingWeb -method by creating a method which checks if the site (SPWeb) has got a Pages-library.
if (web == null || !web.Exists) return false;
("$Resources:List_Pages_UrlName", "cmscore", web.Language))
