Relevant Documents Webpart Missing

I'm using SharePoint 2010 and under the Content Rollup categories I'm missing the Relevant Documents webpart. I'm only showing Memberships, My Links, My SharePoint Site, and My Workspaces.

Is there a way to enable the missing webpart? I'm not sure what I may have missed during the initial installation.

Thank you

Hello,

The web parts you list are part of the My Site template. The Relevant Documents web part does not feature in there. It only shows in the Content Rollup section of a non-My Site site.

cheers, teylyn

Thank you Teylyn. You are exactly right. I was on a My Site page when viewing the web parts. I switched to a non My Site page and can see many more available webparts including the Relevant Documents one.

Thank you for clearing this up for me!
