comment Add Site Page to Quick Launch by default
The Office 365 configuration, which I really, really don't understand or like, has one public site collection and x number of internal site collections. The internal have full functionality, the one public is severely hobbled. The Apps4Rent is just what you would expect: a fully-functional site collection with all the bells and whistles (Foundation-level whistles, anyway).

This is my first site collection with this hosting company, so I don't know. It is consistent across all lists.

Also, this is Foundation, so the Publishing feature isn't included. I remember Show Pages from the Publishing feature when I last worked with MOSS. Now, THAT was a decent navigation feature!

comment Add Site Page to Quick Launch by default
Good guess, but like I said, the Office 365 public site is severely crippled. Quick launch, Top link bar, Tree view, List templates, and a whole lot of other items aren't even included in the Site Settings page.

comment Add new Calendar in Office 365 SharePoint site
Never too late to join the party! Seriously, I answer old questions myself, because most of the people who benefit from them are those who Google for the same problem years later. I tried your suggestion, but it doesn't support repeating events properly. See my answer below for using a subsite, which strangely has ALL the functionality that the main site is missing, except for theme support.

comment How do I delete closed web parts from a page?
By the way, closing a web part does NOT help performance. My first SharePoint gig, we had a custom Web Part that did a SQL pull and took 5 - 10 seconds to run. I found five closed web parts on the home page, each one was still running in the background even though they were closed. I wish Microsoft would remove this "Close feature", it's the most misleading thing I've seen.

comment Prevent users from deleting webpart
Close only hides the web part, which is insidious, because it still runs in the background. I can't understand why Microsoft hasn't removed this "feature" in later versions. Your answer is correct for Close, but not for removing a web part.

comment Filter List for DateTime using CAML against Calculated Field
Fixed. But this should be a comment, not an answer.
