I've some problems with editing a webpart.

For example I am able to create webparts but afterwards I cannot delete them without doing it with the ?contents=1 URL addition.

I've given my account full access everywhere (+ Creat, Write, Read and what's left), though.

I tried to edit the content editor but there's no option to edit it.

I just wanted to do this simple tutorial: http://blog.creative-sharepoint.com/2013/03/creating-a-sharepoint-2013-intranet-homepage/

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you in advance for your help.

  • are you able to put your page into edit mode ? Is it that you do not get the dropdown to edit the web part ? Sep 8 '14 at 14:50

    I am able to do this. I can add WebParts or AppParts but I cannot delete them afterwards.

Try going into Page / Edit Properties / Edit Properties, scroll to the bottom, and click the "view page in maintenance mode" option. There your CEWPs are displayed in a list and you can delete them or reset them there.
