sharing web parts across sub sites

  Asked By: Gonzalo    Date: Aug 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2956

I'm a web developer with a small college currently evaluating
Sharepoint as an intranet solution and we are very impressed.
However, we are currently renting space on a WSS server and therefore
can't fully evaluate some of the tips as we don't have full admin
access to these sites. We are newer than newborn newbies.

But from my interaction with Sharepoint an subsites so far I was
surprised to find that I cannot create a document library web part in
the root site and share it down to the subsites, or laterally across
subsites. This doesn't seem to fit in with the extensibility I've
heard about and kind of basic to a product like this, so maybe I'm
maybe I'm missing something very basic. Could someone clarify? I'm
going to want to create document folders in one subsite and have them
appear as web parts when I go to design a page.

And don't suggest using web capture as a technique, which I've tried.
It seems to me that Sharepoint in general is slow on this server and
one web capture web part takes 20-30 seconds to render!!

The FrontPage Data View Webpart is a good solution  for allowing your libraries/lists to appear on other WSS sites. There are also other 3rd party solutions that provide roll-up functionality that may fit your requirement.

i would like to talk about this issue.
Is i know, SPPS Home is more to be working as agregation, specialize
in audience, and searchine across the entire enterpise, and so on
for publish final documents, biult, and redisegned, with versions at
the wss  sites...

But even if you want to see some document  libraries in one wss site
thant belongs to another wss site,, you could do that, if you need
this, i could send you the info...

i hope it helps you...
