MSNBC Web Parts

  Asked By: Larissa    Date: Dec 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 821

I do understand that these particular web parts increase the load time
of the page when they are part of a page, however my question is, is
it necessary to disable them from the menu of "webpart library" in
order for them not to load at all?

Its my original understanding that if a web part is not placed
directly on the page, that it does not cause a hit to load times of
said page. Is that assumption correct?

Yes. webpart  code(in this case the rss feeds) won't run unless the
webpart is loaded on a page.

The online Web Part Gallery can be disabled (it is the first thing that
I do whenever I extend a Virtual Server). The MSNBC Web Parts hold no
business value and most can be made available in another gallery if

The online Web Part gallery is queried every time someone tries to add
Web Parts to the page. If the Web Parts are added to the page, they
retrieve data from the MSNBC server every time the page  is loaded. I
don't recommend their use.

I know this is an old issue, but I am trying to disable  these MSNBC web
parts. Are these located in the web.config?

How exactly did you disable them?

Go into SharePoint Central Admin -> Configure Virtual Server Settings -> Pick
your Virtual Server -> Manage Security for web  Part Pages. The MSNBC web parts
are in the "Online Web part  Gallery." Disable that.

One other question, what if there are sites that already have this web  part
in place? How would I find them to remove them? (At first I thought it might
just get disabled, but I checked a site I do know that already uses the
MSNBC web part  and it is still there after being disabled.)

The MSNBC web  parts are simply preconfigured Content Editor Web Parts.
You'll have to programmatically find the Content Editor web parts  and
look for specific key words.
