I have created a Team Site since my client is wants an Intranet site. Inside this team site, I enabled the Publishing Infrastructure Features, so that I created pages based on Page Layout. By enabling the publishing feature I can perform
Navigate to my default landing page http://localhost/SitePages/Home.aspx Site Actions Site Settings Page Layout and Templates set the default page layout for newly created pages.
If I did not enable the publishing features, I do not see 'Page Layout and Templates' option under site settings.
I noticed that I can only take advantage of the new page layout, which I specified in #5 above, if I perform the following:
Navigate to my default landing page http://localhost/SitePages/Home.aspx From the Quick Launch, view all site content. Click on the 'Pages' library. Site Actions. New Page.
If I don't follow the above steps, the newly created page defaults to the OOB wiki template. By following the above steps, my new page is based on the page layout I specified above.
The problem I am having is:
Navigate to my newly created page http://localhost/Pages/MyNewPage.aspx Note that 'All Site Content' and 'Recycle Bin' is missing. Using the IE developer toolbar, I noticed that the html if rendered. However, the rendered HTML is decorated with a CSS style, 'display:none;'.
QUESTION: How can I get the 'All Site Content' and 'Recycle Bin' to appear on pages that are based on a page layout?
