How do you inherite web parts from a parent site

  Asked By: Ramsey    Date: Apr 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1730

I want to do a subsite and use some of the web parts from the parent
site. Can this be done?

Example; In the parent site, I create a Phone List web part. Now I
want to place that same phone list web part on the subsite.

You can't actually use the webpart from the parent  site. You can use a
content query webpart to display the information from the list  in the
parent site  in the child site and achieve the same effect.

I knew of this web  part, but I obviously do not know how to install
it properly, as when I do, it says it will not work as installed.

If you have any quick proceedure, I'd appreciate your input.
