2. Click the down arrow next to Upload A Web Part . That area of the workspace will
change to display a field and a Browse button.

Open it. That will bring you back to the workspace, with the path to the web part you
want to upload listed in the Upload A Web Part field (Figure 5.36).

4. If the file is the correct one, click Upload to upload the web part to the workspace.
This will take you back to the home page as if nothing happened. It is a little shocking.
But what did happen is that a new category in the web part workspace was added called
Imported Web Parts, and the uploaded web part is now listed in that category.
5. To actually add the imported web part to the page, click Add A Web Part at the top of the
zone you want to use.
6. Once the web part workspace is open, click the Imported Web Parts category, and select
your imported web part in the Web Parts column. See Figure 5.37.
7. Click the Add button on the bottom right of the workspace to add the web part to top of
the web part zone.
That will close the web part workspace and drop the web part in the zone you’d selected. The
My Vacation Request web part will now appear at the top of the left web part zone.
To get out of edit mode, click Stop Editing . That will display the page as users will see it
when they access the site (Figure 5.38). Notice that the web part has no title or border and looks
like rich text added to the web part page.
And that’s it. That’s how you import a web part to a page. This works for either web part or
wiki pages. The Upload A Web Part option is available in the web part workspace either way.
