We’re busy with the Media and Content Categories (Web Parts), today we’re looking at Script Editors. These web parts are used to allow users to add HTML snippets or scripts to pages. I use these to apply styling to the page / web parts I am on. It does not affect the overall styling of the site.

Media and Content:Media

Content Editor Allows authors to enter rich text content.
Get started with your site This web part displays a set of tiles with common SharePoint actions.
Image Viewer Displays a specified image.
Media Web Part Use to embed media clips (video and audio) in a web page. *
Page Viewer Displays another Web page on this Web page. The other Web page is presented in an IFrame.
Picture Library Slideshow Web Part Use to display a slideshow of images and photos from a picture library.
Script Editor Allows authors to insert HTML snippets or scripts.
Silverlight Web Part A web part to display a Silverlight application.

In my example I’ve added some CSS to remove the left navigation from my page. I’ve decided to start running another blog specific for CSS Tips and Tricks. Yes, yes, you’d think a blog a day on my 365 Challenge is enough to keep me busy – but I would like to keep it separate from my OTB Office 365 Blog Challenge. You can find the above code here.

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
