  • Good point, in order to add a Page into that area, you will need to define a Custom Action. You can learn more about creating Custom Actions here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh500259(v=office.14).aspx

    As an example, Microsoft uses the following Custom Action to add the "Publishing Page" to that Create Silverlight control when enabling the Publishing features:

        <CustomAction
            Id="CreatePublishingPage"
            GroupId="WebPages"
            Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.Create"
            Sequence="100"
            Title="$Resources:cmscore,Create_WebPages_PublishedPage;"
            Description="$Resources:cmscore,Create_WebPages_PublishedPage_Description;"
            ImageUrl="/_layouts/images/ltpp.png">
    		<UrlAction Url="_Layouts/CreatePage.aspx" />
        </CustomAction>

  • That area is reserved for List, Library, and Site templates. A Page Layout would be associated within a Content Type, which would be associated within a Library.
