Sharepoint webpart maintenance page

Hi Guys,

Some times while working with the Sharepoint pages ,we are unable to open/edit the page in the sharepoint designer if there is a problem with the webparts(generally script included webparts) . In such cases if we want to remove the issue caused webpart we will go for this webpart maintenance page.

This is a small way/trick to find the webparts on a page in sharepoint with their status.

If your page url is  http://myserver:5485/default.aspx

add ?contents=1 at the end of the url i.e http://myserver:5485/default.aspx?contents=1

From here you can find theat the webpart with name Demo2Tasks is on the page but it is in closed state.

Happy reading..!
