Insert web parts in NewItem or Edit Item sharepoint pages

ToolPaneView hack

This next workaround is great, because it can be done in the web browser and requires no SharePoint designer. It is exceedingly simple. For any web part page, simply append the following text to the URL:

&ToolPaneView=2

Thus, if my original URL was:

http://tidemo/tftp/Lists/IT%20Assets/DispForm.aspx?ID=2&Source=http%3a%2f%2ftidemo%2ftftp%2fLists%2fIT%2520Assets%2fAllItems.aspx&PageView=Shared

Then my new URL is:

http://tidemo/tftp/Lists/IT%20Assets/DispForm.aspx?ID=2&Source=http%3a%2f%2ftidemo%2ftftp%2fLists%2fIT%2520Assets%2fAllItems.aspx&PageView=Shared&ToolPaneView=2

Below is a screen capture of the effect. If you look carefully you see two things have happened. The page is now in Edit Mode and the “Add Web parts” window is displayed. Since we are in edit mode, we can click any web part zone and add our web part!
