NOT THE ONLY BUILT-IN WEB PARTS
Keep in mind that the Team Site template generated the built-in web par ts when it was applied. Other
site templates can have a few other web parts specific to their applicable tasks, such as blog web
parts for the Blog template or meeting-related web parts for the Meeting Workspace templates.
As a matter of fact, if you grow particularly fond of a web part from a different site template, you can
go to the web part gallery (select Site Actions Site Settings, and click Web Parts in the Galleries
category), activate the Documents ribbon, and click New Document (yes, all galleries are really
document libraries). It will trigger a form box in which you can select any, or all, of the web parts
available by default for the out-of-the-box templates for SharePoint Foundation. It is there that you
will likely find your favorite web part. Select it, and click Populate Gallery.
That will make your selected web parts available in the site collection’s web part gallery and
therefore available in the web part workspace.

Keep in mind that there is no way to insert more than one web part at a time (there used to be,
with the previous versions of SharePoint, but not this time), so if you do want to add more than
one, you’ll have to add them singularly. In this case, we’re adding a user-specific web part, but
you can use this process to add any web part available in the workspace to a page.

content area where you want the web part to go. Then click the Insert tab in the Editing
