  1. They like to keep us on our toes I think. Another little SharePoint mystery to keep us entertained.

    I’ve come across that one myself. I find the easiest thing to do it to use PowerShell to activate the hidden feature:

    Enable-SPFeature -Url “http://thesite” -Identity “TaxonomyFieldAdded”

    The TaxonomyFieldAdded feature adds the TaxonomyHiddenList and all that good stuff.



  2. Hey Charlie!

    Yes, that’s a fair point – you can fix it with Powershell or STSADM

    STSADM -o activatefeature -name TaxonomyFieldAdded -url “http://thesite”

    It’s easy to fix, I was just curious about why we had to!
