Add Web Parts to DispForm, EditForm or NewForm.aspx

One of the users of our SharePoint project asked if it was possible to show an “Item List” on the “View Item” page.

My first reaction was: “Of course it is, add a Web Part displaying the “Item List” to the page and we’re done”.

But when I browsed to the “View Item” page and clicked the “Site Actions” I noticed that there wasn’t an “Edit Page” option available. Strange, but after some -Googling- I found the following sollution:

  • Open IExplorer and navigate to your “View Item” page (DispForm.aspx)
  • Replace everything in the URL after “?ID=#“ with “&PageView=Shared&ToolPaneView=2″ (without the quotes of course) and press
After adding a Web Part to the page and saving it, the “Edit Page” option will be available the next time you click “Site Actions” on that Page.
