Adding default webparts to areas and web part pages in SPS

  Asked By: Jerry    Date: Dec 12    Category: WSS    Views: 7955

ive been working with customizing the area templates in SPS and have
come along way in understanding how things are connected.

There is however one thing that i just cant get to work: adding
default web parts to lists, web part page templates etc.

I have created a custom area template
(..60\TEMPLATE\1033\CUST_SPSTOC). In that i have added a custom
webpartzone (navbarzone) to wich i want to add a custom web part.

This works fine in all "areas" but in lists
(CUST_SPSTOC\LISTS\somelist) and web part pages (fx. the templates in
CUST_SPSTOC\DOCTEMP\SMARTPGS\) the zone is there but no web parts are

I have edited the ONET.XML for the area template as follows:
<Module Name="Default" Url="" Path="" RootWebOnly="FALSE">
<File Url="default.aspx" Type="Ghostable">
<AllUsersWebPart WebPartZoneID="navbarzone"
<WebPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2" >
<Title>Nav webpart - DONT REMOVE</Title>



I have searched and read the CAML reference and its still a bit
unclear to me how you define what a <MODULE ..> really is and how you
get a module to add web parts certan places. I also tried inserting
the web part in the WebPartPopulation instead, but this didnt work
