Sharepoint 2003 Areas

  Asked By: Justin    Date: Dec 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1733

I'm new to Sharepoint 2003 but an old pro at 2001. I've added new
"Areas and SubAreas" to Sharepoint but when I go into the Areas I've
created, they are empty, only showing if there are SubAreas. I've also
added lists and document library to these areas but I hate how they are
under the Manage Content instead of listed on the Areas page. What is
everyone out there putting on the Areas pages?

To get your lists and document libraries to appear, you need to add the

each Area/Sub Area is a WebPart Page

Finally, you can alter the Site Definitions (XML files) which configures the
default Web Part Page when the Area (a.k.a. Site) is created.
E.g. you could put the Web Part showing content from the Document Library in the
top Web Part Zone.

See the SDK/documentation for details on how to do this.

I don't have a Modify Page in the upper right but I do on sites. Is
something setup wrong where I'm not seeing that on the Areas pages?

I have a basic question; please excuse if it sounds silly.

In which situation do I have to use SharePoint Portal Server 2003,
whereas I can create top-level web-sites and sub-sites simply through
Windows SharePoint Services itself. Please advise so that I can start
off in the right direction.

The general idea is SPS is a portal and WSS is collaboration. If you are
looking to present information to a large audience and allow them to categorize,
search, and target content on the portal and other source then use SPS. If you
are looking for a way to facilitate collaboration then use WSS.
