What's the problem with you?

You can add another web part by clicking "Add a Web Part" button as your screenshot.


If your page is in Site Pages library, you can go to SharePoint Designer->Site pages in the left pane->find the page and Edit File in advanced mode.

Add insert Web Part Zone via click the botton:

  • Sorry I wasn't clear, I want to add another Webpart zone, not just adding another webpart.

In Order to add a new WebPart Zone you need to create a custom Page Layout and use that page layout to create your SharePoint Pages OR you can edit your page in SharePoint Designer and add below code snippet to it.

Reference: Create a Custom Page Layout in SharePoint.

Then you can add below code snippet to add webpart zone to your custom page layout:

<WebPartPages:WebPartZone runat="server" Title="TestZoneTitle1" ID="TestZoneID1">

Reference: Add a web part zone snippet in SharePoint.


  1. Make sure you are putting this snippet inside <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderMain" runat="server"> block.
  2. Make sure you are passing different ID to webpart zone if you are adding multiple webpart zones on your page.
  • Thanks Ganesh, What about adding the WebPart Zone to existing page? I already have the custom page and I need to update the page with more PageLayout Zone.

  • I just updated the page in SharePoint designer and added your code under the other WebPart Zone, however when I save the it I get lots of &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp in there.
