I thought I’d start up a reference list for each of the web parts that come OTB from MOSS 2007 as I investigate them for the project I’m currently working on. First one – Site Aggregator Web Part.
The site aggregator web part is actually a pretty simple web part – put it on a page and it can display all objects (images, documents, forms, excel spreadsheets) that have been added to any SharePoint site belonging to the same site collection as the one that the web part is deployed upon.
To configure it, you just enter the URL of the site that you want to display all the documents from, then give the link a name – this name then shows up as the name of the tab you click on to display the content from that site, so make it intuitive, eh! 🙂
So… under "Sites", click on the "New Sites Tab" – Enter in the URL and the tab name, then click Create.
New tab created, check!
To do: Save the world 🙂
Couple of tips – you can’t edit a tab you’ve already created… and you can’t move the tabs around… and they are not sorted alphabetically… hmmm, best advice is to make sure the one you’ve just done is complete before moving onto the next tab.
