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

I'm currently creating an application for SharePoint 2010 that leverages what I consider to be repeatable solutions I've used over and over as a consultant.

Something that I made that I liked was a metro like dashboard where people could add custom webparts (twitter, etc...) to their SharePoint landing page.

I'd like to be able to offer different grids with different layout sizes, so it feels a little like Windows 8.

The hard part is, SharePoint throws an error any time I try to dynamically add Web Part Zones.

The idea of pre-creating hidden grids that are rendered or not with JS for personalized views sounds like KLUGE waiting to happen.

Anyone have a recommendation?

Hi, did you ever come up with a suitable solution for this? –  j.strugnell Jul 15 at 11:02

The wiki page libraries (in SP 2010) seem to have the ability to change layouts on the fly. Have you tried using them instead of a webpart page?

I'll take a look, thanks for the suggestion –  Wesley Jun 25 '12 at 4:01
    
Not really the right way to go, but I hate having a non %100 accept rate :) Points for being the only one to respond. –  Wesley Jun 27 '12 at 15:54
