The newly themed
HR team site
Galleries
Galleries are for storing customized lists, sites, web parts, and more (usually in the form of
template files, but there are exceptions). There are even galleries for site columns and content types.
Galleries are generally document libraries, used to organize and make available those files for
download, upload, and so on. There are seven galleries; three are available at all site levels, and
four site collection galleries are accessible only from the top-level site, although their contents
are applicable throughout the site collection. (These will be covered in Chapter 10.) Items added
to the site-level galleries are for that site specifically. The galleries that are available at all site
levels are for site columns, site content types, and master pages.
S I T E C O L U M N S
This gallery collects all the premade columns available to the lists and libraries in the site (think
convenient templates for list fields). Once again, this gallery displays inherited columns, and
everything here is available to all subsites. You can create new site columns that apply just to
this subsite (and not the parent site) or edit any of the inherited columns. You can find more
details about site columns in Chapter 7, “Creating Lists.”
S I T E C O N T E N T T Y P E S
This gallery contains all the content types for this site. Content types are a kind of list item
template. Or more precisely, they are the definition files for site list or library item types, which
can include the templates for documents and pages that can be generated in document
libraries, such as Word files or basic web pages. The gallery is available to the site and all subsites and
shows the content types inherited from the parent site. Chapter 8, “Introduction to Libraries,”
explains content types in more detail.
