Advantages of multiple WebPart zones RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have a page layout devided into two vertical parts. Left zone and right zone.

    My right zone is supposed to have multiple webparts one below the other. Should i go with one webpart zone in my page layout or many.

    I guess this can be achieved with one zone only. is there any advantage of keeping multiple webpart zones?

  • Depends on how you want to display your webparts, this is a layout question and you can the weight and height of each webpart.

    This is more a look and feel question, what are the webpart you want to display??

    RSS will all feeds, a Calendar view, Excel Services, a weather webpart with the current day or the full month :)? depends, but be carefull how many webparts you want to display and is they are calling a lot of data, this can turn you page load very slow... Delete the webpart and dont close the webpart
    If you close the webpart will not appear in the page but will be there and can slow you page...

  • Thanks a lot.

    I am well aware of the fact of slow page loading due to many webparts.

    Q1. But is there a limit to the number of webparts in one webpart zone and having many webpart in one webpart zone. can this be a performance hit?

    The width and height of each webpart in the right zone is same. So should i go ahead with a single webpart zone with orientation as vertical.
