Show SharePoint Web Designer Galleries
A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström
SharePoint Web Designer Galleries
is where you manage all reusable components in a SharePoint
site collection, like data containers, templates, layouts,
As shown in the article about
getting started with SharePoint Online, a team site
has already been created when you start using SharePoint.
Due to the default settings, this team site does not display
the SharePoint Web Designer Galleries, which might cause
problems to SharePoint administrators.
When you create a new site manually, the SharePoint Web
Designer Galleries will be displayed in the Site settings
by default. This is however not the case with the automatically
created team site.
The same goes for "save the site as a template" and several
other features, and the reason for this difference is that
scripting is not allowed in the first, default team site.
You have to allow it manually. When you create a new site,
scripting is enabled by default.
In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer
of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, shows the difference
between the default and a manually created site collection.
He also explains how to enable the SharePoint Web Designer
Galleries group in the Site settings of a default site.
These are the steps:
- Open the SharePoint admin center.
- In the left menu, click on 'settings'.
- Scroll down and find the 'Custom Script' section.
- Enable the radio button 'Allow users to run custom
script on self-service created sites'.
