SharePoint 2010: How to add a webpart to Pages

Web parts are an important factor in determining how information is presented to SharePoint users.These reusable components can be placed on pages and configured to present SharePoint content in themost beneficial way for your site.

Web parts are not limited to displaying SharePoint information. They can also provide you with the ability to search and manage data in external databases and file systems. Custom web parts can bedeveloped to provide much of the functionality found in other applications, thereby integrating your SharePoint environment with your other existing systems.

Once you have created a site or have added either a Web Part page, Publishing page, or general content page to an existing site, you will want to customize the display of the page by adding web parts. This is accomplished directly on the page using ribbon commands.

For Web Part pages and some Publishing page layouts, web part zones are provided to manage where web parts are placed within the page. Add a web part to a web part page in a collaboration siteusing the following steps:

1. On the page, click the Edit Page link in the Site Actions menu.

2. On the web part page, click the Add a Web Part link in the web part zone where you want the new web part placed.

3. In the Categories section of the Web Parts bar, select the category that most closely corresponds to the type of functionality you are looking for in a web part.

4. In the Web Parts section, select the web part you want to place on the page.

5. In the About The Web Part section, select the desired web part zone in the Add The Web Part To selection box.

6. Click the Add button.

7. Select the Stop Editing command from the Edit group on the Page ribbon.

Done !! The webpart has been successfully placed on your page..
