Add Custom Web Part to My Site

  Asked By: Ruchir    Date: Jul 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1096

How do I get a custom web part to show up as a selection for each user (on
the My Site), without them having to add it to their gallery first?


I have created a custom web part (using VS 2008) and deployed it to the
share point server. I want this web part to show up when the user clicks on
the "Add a Web Part" link on their "My Home" page. e.g. "My Site" --> "Site
Actions" --> "Edit Page" --> "Add a Web Part". But the web part does not
show up, even if I use the search feature.

I tried this to make the part show up:

Goto: My Site > Site Settings
http://SharePoint/MySite/_layouts/settings.aspx

Click Web Parts
http://SharePoint/MySite/_catalogs/wp/Forms/AllItems.aspx

Click New:
http://SharePoint/MySite/_layouts/NewDwp.aspx

Select My.ActionItems
Click "populate gallery"

Locate the ActionItems.webpart and click "Edit"

For description enter:

"This web part will allow you to see your open Action Items."

For "Quick Add Groups"
Check Default
Check Specify your own value and enter "My Site"

But when I log on as "domain\user1" and go to my site, I still have to go to
"Site settings" --> "Web Parts" and add the web part to the gallery before I
can add it to a page.

How do I get the web part to show up as a selection for each user, without
them having to add it to their gallery first?
