hopefully soon, pencil pushing i.e. head of IT in private got a few interviews lined up
To be honest, there's no real reason why I've chosen MOSS2007 over SP2010. Thinking about it, I'm tempted to upgrade to SP2010, but do you know if a template site created in 2007 will be usable in 2010?
The upgrade from SP2007 to SP2010 is very good to be honest, i have not heard of people having many issues during the upgrade unless there farm was shafted before hand. :-)1. First you need to create a site in SharePoint 2007 using your .stp template.
2. Then, backup the database for that site and restore it on SharePoint 2010 enviornment.
3. After you do that just Open up the site and fix any issues ( like 12 hive refrencing files etc).
4. Now, you can Save this Site (from Settings page -> Save as Template) and it will give you a .wsp solution for the site.
This solution can then be re-used as a Site Template.
Side Note – If you want to deploy this Site template solution as a farm you will need to open the above .wsp solution in VS 2010 and
change the Scope as “Farm”.

Took the plunge and upgraded to Sharepoint 2010.
Although I've taken a backup of the site I was building, I'm starting again from scratch (as I believe the experience will do me good).
I do have one issue though (alongside my ongoing issue with not being able to set permissions as mentioned previously!), I no longer seem to be able to do any work in Sharepoint Designer (I am currenty running 2007 though so I don't know if that's the cause). It's telling me that editing using SPD is disabled in my site...... any suggestions? I've checked the central administration site and it looks like it's all enabled.
Ok, back to this :-)
In 2007, I could use interactive buttons to call the new form for a particular list. In 2010, I do not have the option of using "interactive buttons" only asp.net or html. As I've said before, I am a complete newbie to this sort of thing and I have no idea how to set up the events on a button to get it to do what I want....any suggestions?
Forget my previous post on this, I've managed to work through that problem :-)
Back to my list of other items to sort on my site
I'm trying to set Item Level Permissions in Sharepoint 2010 using this method, but when I access the area, I do not see anything relating to item level permissions (see attached screenshot, apologies for the size)....am I doing something really thick? Do I need to install an add in or something?

In addition, I'm also trying to work out a way to redirect users when they submit a form. On clicking the submit button they are sent to the main list view, whereas I'd like to have them redirected back to the homepage of the site? Hope this makes sense, any help anyone can provide will be gratefully received as always.
I don't access to my SP2010 box at the moment, so if you can post the string that you see when clicking the submit button.. should be able to work out the one you need to replace it with.
*replace domain info with demo domain.
I have been shown and told to do the following.
1: You must be an owner of the site (i.e. content hierachy access and above)
1: Open the document Library
2: Click Settings, LIST Settings (or Document Library Settings)
3: Click PERMISSIONS FOR THIS LIST
4: A list of users is displayed who have access to the content. If you only see ACTIONS the security is inherited from the site. You will need to override this by clicking ACTIONS, then EDIT permissions
5: Click NEW, ADD USERS
6: Enter the users and grant the appropriate access
7: Click OK
