Hi experts,
I have created a new blank .aspx page in Sharepoint Designer 2007 and need your expertise as I would like to add on the top of the blank page the SITE ACTIONS drop down tab so I can still edit these pages and have the options fot adding webparts to the page from within the Browser. This means I will still need the main content for me to add to. The server I connect to from within sharepoint designer is using MOSS  2007.  I want to just have the options from the site actions tab and do not need all the other placeholders, title, etc.. that comes if i simply do a create from masterpage etc..  Please Help. Thanks Steve.

Simple answer is that you can't.

What you can do, however, is create a SharePoint master page (start by copying the existing one) and hide all of the stuff you don't want.  Then create your page from that.
