Sharepoint 2007: Modify the Links in the SharePoint Sites Web Part

1/17/2011 9:22:55 AM
The useful SharePoint Sites web part shows you a list of the SharePoint sites of which you are a member. When you click on each of these sites you will be shown the documents and tasks you have been working on in them.


The web part shows the sites that you are a member of. This means only sites that list you in their “site members” security group will be shown. However, you can add and remove links to sites if there are other sites that you want in this interface.

To add a link to a site that is not shown, click the Sites button on the left of the toolbar of the web part. This will show you an option to create a new site tab, as shown in Figure 1. Either point the new tab at any site you want by typing the link to the site, or choose from the list of sites to which you are a member to add that site if it was deleted from the list before.

You can modify this list to hide or delete links to sites that you do not use often or in which you do not need to track documents and tasks.

To remove a link, simply open the drop-down of that SharePoint Sites web part link by clicking the small down arrow, and select either Hide or Delete from the menu (see Figure 2). Choosing one of these options does not delete the actual site, but just removes it from the list that the web part tracks.
