I had a SharePoint site where I created a page (not a webpart page). Can I add webpart zone on this page?

  • What you mean by Page? Is is aspx or html and how you add it? Commented Dec 27, 2011 at 11:27

Sure you can. Just open the page in SharePoint Designer and add web part zone on it. Designer will automatically add the web part manager tag on the page too.

  • I tried to add it from designer but web part zone doesn't get displayed on the page.

U just add your webpart in sharepoint site. Then open your site in sharepoint designer.Find your webpart zone you added like so

  <WebPartPages:SPUserCodeWebPart runat="server" Description="My WebPart" Title="ContactUsWebpart" 
          AssemblyFullName="XTILTON.WEB, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f58f965830ac0890" 
          ID="g_c659e549_13c5_4c1c_8db9_c80e6d00fb88" ChromeType="None" TypeFullName="XTILTON.WEB.ContactUsWebpart.ContactUsWebpart" ></WebPartPages:SPUserCodeWebPart>

after that copy that webpartzone in your .aspx page. that's it.

  • actually i want to create 3 webpart zone on this page.is it possible?

  • Hi ARd,I never try that. But do it As i told U for single webpart Commented Dec 27, 2011 at 9:55

Please make sure that all mandatory ContentPlaceHolder from SharePoint master-page is linked to your custom page.

Maybe you should start design/create your custom page from native SharePoint web-part page, not start from scratch, to make sure all SharePoint functionality works well.


Register your webpart at the top of the page using sample code below

<%@ Register tagprefix="VotingButton" 
             assembly="xxx.org.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=ff75f32512e6d74c" %>

Next, add the web part to the web part zone area of page as below

<VotingButton:VotingButton runat="server"
