SharePoint 2010 - Creating Pages
This article explains how site contributors can create pages in SharePoint 2010.
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server enables your team to create websites to share documents and keep track of project tasks, discussions, and contacts. Build web pages for your SharePoint site to communicate project details and other information. Creating a page involves adding Web Parts to the page. A Web Part allows you to specify and modify the appearance and behavior of the web page. For example, you may want to build a web page that includes a clock displaying the time at a particular location.
Once a page is created, your site administrator can add it to the Quick Launch Bar or you can find it by searching All Site Content from the left navigation pane. The new page will have its own unique web address which can be accessed by anyone with permission to view your site.
To create a new page:
- Click Site Actions, then select New Page.
- Name the page. A blank content area will appear.
- Select your page layout from the drop-down list under Text Layout.
When an image is inserted in the web page, SharePoint uploads the image from your local drive to the website. The SharePoint website is on a server, so your image will be loaded onto the server and becomes part of your site.
When you delete a page, SharePoint will not actually remove it from your site. It will send it to the recycle bin, and you can recover it later if you change your mind. The web pages you create are secure. Only people with permission may to access it and view it. Because it is a site page, people with contributor or site administrator permissions will be able to edit your page.
