SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to have two small web parts (weather and traffic reports) arranged side-by-side, rather than one on top of the other, on a wiki page (Home.aspx). It appears that I'll need a web part zone to do this, but it also appears that I cannot add a secondary web part to a wiki page. Or can I?

Honestly, the web part zone issue is just how I'm thinking I might have to solve the side-by-side issue, but if there's a better way, I'm all ears!

This is under SharePoint Foundation 2010, FWIW.

You can add as many web parts to a wiki page as you want.

You can use either the Text Layout button (on Ribbon) to do things like split the page up into multiple columns.

If that doesn't give you granular enough control then add a table (use Insert > Table) with 1 row and 2 cols and add the web parts into the cells.

I am sure some CSS nazi will be long in a minute telling me how I've just killed a puppy for suggesting that tables be used for layout purposes ;) –  Ryan May 12 '11 at 16:12

If you have SharePoint Designer installed, you should be able to use it to create a custom page layout with more WebPart zones.

When I did it, I believe I used this site: http://www.mssharepointtips.com/tip.asp?id=940&page=2. The site shows a MOSS2007 site, but I believe it worked for 2010 as well.
