Installing a Custom Web Part

To add a Web Part to your collection, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log on to your SharePoint Services site. From the Site Actions menu select Site Settings
  2. Under Galleries click on Go to Site Administration
  3. Under Site Collection Galleries click on Web Parts
  4. From the Upload menu select Upload Document or Upload Multiple Documents
  5. You can then Browse to the location on your computer where the .dwp or .xml file is located and upload to the server.

Please note that we do not support the installation of Web Parts which include additional support files or have custom security requirements.

Installing 3rd-Party Web Part

Because your Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site is hosted on a shared hosting platform, we may or may not be able to support some 3rd-party web parts.

Some Web Parts include only a single .DWP file and you can add them to your site easily from the Web Part Gallery. However, some web parts have additional installation files and must be installed by a Server Administrator. In such cases, you will need to contact support@myhosting.com to request installation of the web part.

Please note that our decision on whether to install 3rd-part web parts will depend on a number of factors including security, stability, and licensing. We are only able to install a web part if it is licensed for use by multiple site-collections on a single shared hosting server. We cannot install any web part which is licensed for use by a single user or single site collection only, as we have no way of restricting using of the web part to other customers on the shared hosting server.
