I know that inside my enterprise wiki site collection I have a wiki page layout instead of text layout. My question is, can I get a text layout page from my enterprise wiki home page?

Currently inside my enterprise wiki site collection, the home page is a wiki page, while I want it to have a home page similar to the team site home page. Where I can add a web part to show my document library and calendar events instead of viewing normal wiki page?

Try going to default.aspx. If it shows up, you can then set it as the default home page.

Edit: Since that doesn't work, since that doesn't work.

  1. Go to Site Settings and go to the Page Layouts and Site Templates Settings link. In the Page layouts section, add (Welcome Page) Blank Web Part Page and any other page layouts you may want.
  2. Go to your Pages library and go into the Library Settings. Click the link for Add from existing Content types.
  3. Add Article Page, Welcome Page to your library.
  4. Create a new page from one of these content types and select one of the page layouts from step 1.
  5. Go to the newly created page and in the ribbon, click Make Homepage.

    Then this must only work if you start from a team site template or something similar and add a wiki library to it instead of trying to convert an enterprise wiki to more of a team site. Jun 19, 2015 at 13:04
  • but as you know having enterprise wiki site collection offers more features and capabilities compared to just adding a wiki library inside a team site.. so that why i do not want to start from a team site
