Adding web parts to horrid untouchable SharePoint Newform, Editform and Dispform.aspx

Posted in Sharepoint by Abhishek Bhowmick on May 25, 2011

I am sure many of you have thought that what if I want to add some header or banner or company branding or any other information at the top of the list/library pages like the newform.aspx, edirform.aspx and dispform.aspx. And you often answer yourself that – ah! I need SharePoint Designer for that. That’s right! But you can also do it out-of-the-box.

I was looking through some online resources and bumped into this post online where you can make this happen. Here is how:

  • Open you SharePoint site and navigate to your list/library page and view a list item. This should take us to the dispform.aspx page
  • Modify the URL and replace everything after ../dispForm.aspx?ID=# with &PageView=Shared&ToolPaneView=2
  • So at the end your URL should look like ../dispForm.aspx?ID=#&PageView=Shared&ToolPaneView=2 and press Enter.

You should now be able to add any web part to these pages and the best part is that any change to you make would be universal for that particular list. This means you can view any list item for the page and you should see this new web part in there.

    Has anyone noticed that adding CEWP in editform.aspx would break the page and version information section shows up in the UI? Any workarounds for this? Anyone ?
