My enterprise has recently activated SharePoint online and I'm able to create sites and subsites. Unfortunately, when I try adding webparts to my page, I only get a handful of webpart catalogs :


Notably, there is no Media and Content catalog, which I need in order to add content editor web parts, as well as script editor web parts.

What is the reason for this, and at what level can I fix it ?

  • You might lack of some permissions. Try logging in with site collection admin account :) – Gintas K May 9 '16 at 14:56

Turn scripting capabilities on and off for SharePoint Online Tenant. It will enable\disable some features & webparts in SharePoint Online Tenant.

You can follow the below mentioned link to enable scripting.

Enabling scripting capabilities

After 24 hours you will get features & webparts in your SharePoint Online mentioned in below link.

The new “Custom Script” (no-script) feature

  • My admin replied to me with a screenshot showing that scripting was already enabled. Is there anything else that can cause my site not to receive these features? – MonsieurPoivron May 9 '16 at 15:18
  • Not anything else but you need to wait till minimum 24 hours. after that you will get it – Hardik May 9 '16 at 15:20
  • I have faced same issue before so i know it very well.. – Hardik May 9 '16 at 15:24
  • my admin says it was already enabled previously :( – MonsieurPoivron May 9 '16 at 15:48
  • It happens sometimes... Just turn off & on the feature again & it will work like a charm... You will find powershell script for the same by doing Google... – Hardik May 9 '16 at 16:12

You need to activate the publishing feature on the site collection

  1. Site Actions > Site Settings >Site collection features > SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure
  2. Site Actions > Site Settings >Manage site features >SharePoint Server Publishing

Please verify these and see if it works.
