I have a web part zone page where user can add web part.

I want to display a particular document library in that page which user shouldn't be able to edit or delete.

Basically I don't want to give "Add a webpart" option to user and he should not be able to modify existing or add new web part in that page except that document library which I have already added, so he should only be able to upload documents and other related functions only.


If you add a web part directly to a page or to a page layout without a web part zone then the users will not be able to change or remove that web part.

  • And how do I do that? By adding it directly in page layout i SharePoint designer? But that means I won't be able to use the same page layout on other pages, right!? – Frank Martin Nov 12 '13 at 8:01
  • Yes that is correct - if you add a web part to a page layout then it would appear in all pages using that page layout. – Dave Paylor Nov 12 '13 at 11:21
