Links web part in page layout
Posted on 2011-10-17
I have a links list at the top level of my 2010 publishing site. I would like to insert it as a web part or dataview in my page layout, so that it is shown on all pages derived from that page layout. However, pages created in a subsite from this page layout give an error:
"List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user."
I've tried saving the web part to the top level gallery, and whether I choose the option to always use the links from the top site or to use links relative to the current site, I get the same error.
So does anyone have any suggestions as to how to make this work? It used to work in 2007.
Many thanks for your time.
