Once you've created a page for a project, folder, or tab, you can add tools called Web Parts
which serve as windows onto the data contained in a particular module. The list of web parts available depends on which modules are enabled.
There are two display regions for web parts, each offering a different set. The main, wider panel on the left, where you are reading this wiki, and a narrower right-hand column (on this page containing search, feedback, and a table of contents). Some web parts, like Search
can be added in either place.
Add a Web Part
- Navigate to the location where you want the web part.
- Enter Page Admin Mode to enable the page editing tools.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
- Choose the desired web part from the <Select Web Part> drop down box and click Add.
- Note: if both selectors are stacked on the right, make your browser slightly wider to show them on separate sides.
- The web part you selected will be added below existing web parts. Use the (triangle) menu to move it up the page, or make other customizations.
- Click Exit Admin Mode in the upper right to hide the editing tools and see how your page will look to users.
If you want to add a web part that does not appear in the drop down box, choose (Admin) > Folder > Management > Folder Type
to view or change the folder type and set of modules enabled.
Anchor Tags for Web Parts
You can create a URL or link to a specific web part by referencing its "anchor". The anchor is the name of the web part. For example, this page in the File Management Tutorial example has several web parts:
This URL will navigate the user directly to the "Prelim Lab Results" query web part displayed at the bottom of the page. Notice that spaces in names are replaced with "%20" in the URL.
