Creating Content Pages

  • Michael P. Antonovich


Content pages in SharePoint 2007 were, in some ways, simpler. A content page was a web page. You could use one of several page layouts. Each one had its own configuration and number of web part zones in which you could add web parts. While you can still create content pages that way in SharePoint 2010, you have another alternative, wiki-style pages. These pages feature page layouts called rich text areas that offer two benefits over the more traditional web pages. First, you can type text directly into the text areas without first needing to insert a web part such as the content editor web part. Second, you can create links from one wiki page to another just like the wiki pages in SharePoint 2007 wiki libraries. Moreover, you can insert web parts, lists, tables, images, and anything else you could put in a web page into these rich text zones.
