Publishing Layouts

In beginning to highlight what publishing page layouts are, we will start with the reminder that everything in SharePoint is a list. How does this matter? Well, page layouts sit on master pages. Page layouts are based upon content types. Content types in SharePoint are implemented in lists. So the basic way to define a page layout is by constructing content types from site columns that are either currently in SharePoint or need to be added.

A page layout will have areas that you can place content from a particular content type. Page layouts can contain web-part zones add web parts into, as well as field controls.

All of this information about publishing page layouts contains a few different layers, so it may be helpful to walk through a simple example.
