I had a SharePoint site where I created a page (not a webpart page). Can I add webpart zone on this page?

What you mean by Page? Is is aspx or html and how you add it? – Amit Kumawat Dec 27 '11 at 11:27

Sure you can. Just open the page in SharePoint Designer and add web part zone on it. Designer will automatically add the web part manager tag on the page too.

I tried to add it from designer but web part zone doesn't get displayed on the page. – ARD Dec 27 '11 at 9:44
It should show up when page is in edit mode. – justforkix09 Dec 27 '11 at 10:31

U just add your webpart in sharepoint site. Then open your site in sharepoint designer.Find your webpart zone you added like so

  <WebPartPages:SPUserCodeWebPart runat="server" Description="My WebPart" Title="ContactUsWebpart" 
          AssemblyFullName="XTILTON.WEB, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f58f965830ac0890" 
          ID="g_c659e549_13c5_4c1c_8db9_c80e6d00fb88" ChromeType="None" TypeFullName="XTILTON.WEB.ContactUsWebpart.ContactUsWebpart" ></WebPartPages:SPUserCodeWebPart>

after that copy that webpartzone in your .aspx page. that's it.

Hi ARd,I never try that. But do it As i told U for single webpart – Vishal_Sharepoint Dec 27 '11 at 9:55

Please make sure that all mandatory ContentPlaceHolder from SharePoint master-page is linked to your custom page.

Maybe you should start design/create your custom page from native SharePoint web-part page, not start from scratch, to make sure all SharePoint functionality works well.

Register your webpart at the top of the page using sample code below

<%@ Register tagprefix="VotingButton" 
             assembly=", Version=, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=ff75f32512e6d74c" %>

Next, add the web part to the web part zone area of page as below

<VotingButton:VotingButton runat="server"

-1 The question is asking how to add a web part zone, rather than a web part. – RJ Cuthbertson Oct 1 '12 at 2:45
