relevant documents but their location as well (and of course, you can check the document
properties of any item by clicking the convenient Properties icon for each one). Keep in mind that the
Relevant Documents web part may indicate it has no data to display for you right now (although
mine does have a sample file added in the previous chapter). This will change when more
documents are added to libraries on the site.

Now that we’ve gotten comfortable with inserting a web part into a wiki page, let’s take a little
closer look at the web part.
All web parts have configuration settings. Most settings have to do with the way the web
part will be displayed on the page, but some settings are web part–speciic and have to do with
the web part’s contents as well.
In the case of the Relevant Documents web part, you can set whether the web part should show
documents last modified by, created, or checked out by the logged-in user account. These
differences can be useful and almost justify having more than one of these web parts on the same page—
one to show all documents created by you on the site (regardless of who has modified it or checked
it out or what library it’s in) and one to show all documents you have currently checked out.
In our case, I’d like to display all documents checked out by the user in the Relevant
Documents web part.
1. To edit a web part, you click the down arrow in the web part’s title bar (if the web part
isn’t selected, the down arrow may not appear until you move your mouse over the web
part). Once you click the down arrow, it will drop down a menu of options affecting the
web part (Figure 5.9).
