Adding Quick Launch to Custom aspx Pages


One of the best methods for organizign information at the same level in a SharePoint site is creating custom Web Part Pages. But in WSS 3.0, the main problem with custom aspx pages is that, the custom pages do not include Quick Launch. In order to include Quick Launch into custom aspx pages in WSS 3.0, perform the following steps.

  1. In SharePoint Designer, find your master page. 
  2. Find the line :
    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id=”PlaceHolderLeftNavBar” runat=”server”>
  3. Directly beneath it add:
      </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
  4. Find the real closing   </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>  element and remark it out like
       <!–   </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>  –>
  5. Find the line:
       <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id=”PlaceHolderNavSpacer” runat=”server”>
  6. Directly after it add:
      </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
  7. Find the real closing tag and remark it out
      <!–   </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>  –>
  8. Save the file
