I am going to Site Actions > New Page in SharePoint 2010. I am not seeing the Page layout button on the ribbon. To get it to appear I thought I had to turn on the following:

  • Site Collection Features turn on *SharePoint Server Publishing
  • Infrastructure* Site Features turn on SharePoint Server Publishing

Is there anything else I need to do?

Edit If I turn off Wiki Page Home Page as a site feature, creating new page seems to work. Confused to why this is the case.

  • I believe that Wiki pages do not support the Page Layout feature as the Publishing pages do. – spevilgenius Oct 25 '11 at 14:03
  • Is there way you can make the add publsihing page to be the default type over wiki? – John Oct 25 '11 at 14:08
  • I think that if you make a site a publishing site it is the default, but I am not sure about team sites etc. – spevilgenius Oct 25 '11 at 16:37

On a teamsite for instance - do the following:

Activate the following features:

  • Site Collection Features - SharePoint Server Publishing
  • Site Features - SharePoint Server Publishing

~ Navigate to the page library (Pages) ~ Create a new page ~ Set the new page as the welcome page of your site ~ Delete the SitePages library

From now on, you will fully use the publishing features (page layouts).
