SharePoint 2013 Snippet Gallery Default Items

When I attended the SharePoint conference 2012 a group of dream team SharePoint designers all came together over lunch to chat about design and the new design features within SharePoint 2013. One of the topics of conversation was around the Snippet Gallery and if there was a list of all the standard OOTB snippets. No one knew of any such list so I figured I would take a stab at it. See below the two galleries one for Master Pages and the other for Page Layouts.

Master Page Snippets:
Page Layout Snippets:

Master Page Snippet Gallery: ~53 Snippets


Top Navigation: The navigation snippets provide common navigation links and menu items on a site page.

Vertical Navigation: The navigation snippets provide common navigation links and menu items on a site page.

Search Box: Place the search box component on your page to allow users to search your site.

Site Title: Using the site title snippet rather than hardcoding the title gives non-designers simple control over the site's brand, which users with administrative permissions can change in Site Settings.

Site Logo: Using the site logo snippet rather than hardcoding the title gives non-designers simple control over the site's brand, which users with administrative permissions can change in Site Settings.

Sign In: Only authenticated users can see the ribbon. To give anonymous users a way to log into your site, insert the sign in snippet, which authenticated users won't see.

Edit Mode Panel:
To display content, including snippets, to contributing site authors only, place it inside an Edit Mode Panel.

  • Show Only in Edit Mode
  • Show Only in Regular Mode

Security Trim: To display content only to those users who have a specified level of security permissions, you can use a Security Trim Control. Specify one or more permission levels in the Behavior section of this control's properties. You can set it to many common permission levels, including the option to show content to no one but contributing site authors or site administrators. Then, insert the component on your page and place any content - including other SharePoint components - inside of it.

  • Show to Authors
  • Show to Authenticated Users
  • Show to Administrators

Device Channel Panel: A Device Channel Panel displays the content defined within it to one or more specified Device Channels. Device Channel Panels are typically used on Page Layouts to selectively hide certain regions and functionality from or show them to specified channels, and define channel-specific CSS.

Web Parts
Media and Content
Media Web Part: Use to embed media clips (video and audio) in a web page.
Content Editor: Allows authors to enter rich text content.
Get started: This web part displays a set of tiles with common SharePoint actions.
Image Viewer: Displays a specified image.
Page Viewer: Displays another Web page on this Web page. The other Web page is presented in an IFrame.
Picture Library: Use to display a slideshow of images and photos from a picture library.
Script Editor: Allows authors to insert HTML snippets or scripts.
Silverlight Web Part: A web part to display a Silverlight application.

Dynamic Content
Content Query:
Displays a dynamic view of content from your site.
Summary Links: Allows authors to create links that can be grouped and styled.
Table of Contents: Displays the navigation hierarchy of your site.
Timeline: Use this timeline to show a high level view of data from another webpart or tasks list.
Relevant Document: Displays documents that are relevant to the current user.
XML Viewer: Displays documents that are relevant to the current user.
Content Search: Content Search Web Part will allow you to show items that are results of a search query you specify.

Custom ASP.NET Markup
Custom ASP.NET Markup:
In the background, we convert your HTML Master Pages and Page Layouts to ASP.NET files. If you have any ASP.NET elements you'd like to include that aren't available in the Snippet Gallery, paste the markup for those elements into the text box below, click the Update button, and paste the resulting HTML Snippet into your page.

Page Layout Snippet Gallery: ~72 Snippets


Page Fields

Content Fields 1:

  • Page Image
  • Page Content
  • Summary Links
  • Summary Links 2

Content Fields 2:

  • Content Type
  • Name
  • Title
  • Document Modified
  • Document Created
  • Comments
  • Scheduling Start Date
  • Scheduling End Date
  • Contact
  • Contact E-Mail
  • Contact Name
  • Contact Picture
  • Page Layout
  • Rollup Image
  • Target Audiences
  • Hide physical URLs from search
  • Browser Title
  • Meta Description
  • Meta Keywords
  • Hide from Internet Search Engines

Web Part Zone:
For site content authors to be able to add, edit, and delete Web Parts on a SharePoint page, add Web Part zones to the Page Layout.

All Other Containers, Web Parts, and Custom ASP.NET Markup are the same for both Master Page and Page Layout.

Looking at this list and what is provided via SharePoint designer or visual studio it is hard to determine if anything was left out. If anything it is easier to add and find the elements that you want to add to your master page or page layout.

I hope this helps!

Hi Erik, Have you ever ran into the issue that even though you add a unique class of your own to the snippet customization CSSClass, update and copy the code into your master page or page layout, publish, that your class never shows up on the rendered page source, thus your styles are never applied? I am seeing this behavior.

SharePoint 2010 Content Query for Blog Posts

I hope this post will help many of you feel comfortable with using the Content Query Web Part.In this post I will walk you through the process of creating a content query web part and configuring it to show custom field types. I will also give details on how to use XSLT to stylize and format the data being pulled. I will be using the following scenario as an example. Say that you had a site collection with a top level publishing site. This publishing site would display a the most recent blog posts from all blog sites within its own site collection. To solve this problem we will use a Content Query Web Part and a customized ItemStyle.xsl using XSLT.Please note that the “SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure” needs to be enabled at the site collection to display the content query web part.Step 1: Add a Content Query Web Part to PageNavigate to the site that you want the blog posts to show up and click on edit page.

This will be the first of many SharePoint 2010 posts. I will be focusing on a few of the main CSS classes used for SharePoint 2010 Public Beta.

How To: Hide Left Side Navigation on Home Page

I was recently asked: "How can I hide the side nav bar on the main homepage layout ?? I want to be able to use the side NAV with in the team site etc etc, but I don't want it on the front page.. " There are a couple of ways to do this in SharePoint 2010. If you are using a non-publishing site you can add a Content Editor Web Part to the page and add the following to the HTML Source.
body #s4-leftpanel
display: none;
margin-left: 0px;
Basically the CSS above hides the left navigation Div, and then sets the content area to not have a left margin. Once you are done, simply modify the web part and hide it on the page. If you are using a publishing site for your homepage simply add the same styles specified above to a custom page layout. That way if you have a need for other pages that do not need the left side navigation you can re-use the page layout.
