When adding a web part to a Web Part page, the only option I have are Lists and Libraries category. I'm looking to add a Content Editor web part, but that is not available. Is there a setting under Site Administration to change this?


To enable Content Editor web part you should activate BasicWebParts feature on that site.

You can do this using following PowerShell script.

Enable-SPFeature 00bfea71-1c5e-4a24-b310-ba51c3eb7a57 -Url http://siteurl

There is a catalogpage for webparts in your site URL here /_catalogs/wp/Forms/AllItems.aspx click new and check the box preceding Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.ContentEditorWebPart click the populate button to commit your changes.
