4.1. Exploring Web Parts

Let's first explore the out-of-the-box, no-need-for-coding web parts that any administrator can use. They are useful and often underused.

To start, you need to be on the home page of your SharePoint site, so open IE and browse to your SharePoint server. (Mine is SP2.) Before the page loads, you'll probably need to log in. (The example uses the SharePoint site collection administrator: dem0tek\shareadmin.) Once the site is up, you should be on the home page. Remember, that home pages are web part pages by default in SharePoint, but you can add web parts to most content pages. You can even create web part pages if you need to. However, the most convenient page to customize is the Home page.
