Page Parts

You can create arbitrary page parts and use them however you want. There are a few part names, though, that have special meaning because they are used in the Normal page template. You should not create or change them without talking to the marketing department because they hold enormous power to change the appearance or functionality of the page and may have far-reaching effects.

Be sure to set the filter to None if necessary. When your CSS or Javascript isn’t working, that’s the first thing to check.
