Hi All,

I am trying to edit the layout of a page (resizing webpart zones and removing extra zones).  It appears to work just fine, but after saving, the changes only seem to be effective for the user I used when making changes in SPD.

Here are my exact steps used in modifying the layout

1. SPD - > File -> open site
2. Supplied Site
3. Authenticated as SPSADMIN user for my domain.
4. Clicked into Pages/default.aspx and when prompted clicked 'Edit Page Layout'
5. Deleted extra zones, and modified width
6. Saved and closed site.

Is there something I'm missing to make this change effective for ALL users and not just the SPSADMIN user?

Thanks,
Jeremy

You would need to publish the page to make it available to all users.

Admittedly somewhat of a novice, can you give me a push in the right direction?  What options do I choose when selecting publish site?  I want to simply publish it back to the MOSS server from which it came.

I don't have the SharePoint page at hand, so I hope I am not giving wrong input :-)

It was my understanding that you modified a page in Pages library. You would need to go to the Pages library and choose from the dropdown list of the desired page (in the case that you described would be default.aspx) Approve. Then do the same and choose Publish.

Thank you very much.  This was the answer we were looking for!  For anyone else that has this same issue, here are some more details of a speedbump we ran into along the way:

While trying to check the files back in, we were shown an error that stated "A World Wide Web browser, such as Windows Internet Explorer, is required to use this feature".  This was due to the fact that I had Firefox installed on my system.  Appearently SPD 2007 is only designed to work with MSIE.  The solution is to either UNINSTALL FF or use a machine which only has IE installed (unfortunately setting the default browser to IE didn't make any change.)  More info can be found in this document:

Thanks VERY much for your timely help!
