Web Part Page RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I cannot create a Web Part Page I get the following error: 

    The specified name is already in use.
    The document or folder name was not changed.  To change the name to a different value, close this dialog and edit the properties of the document or folder.

    I know I do not have a document, folder or page with the same name. Can anyone help me resolve the issue?

    Many thanks

  • Hi Kieran- I assume you have the publishing feature activated on your site. That feature creates its own OOTB stuff, and you probably have something named the same (even if you don't see it). I suggest opening the site in SP Designer and look at all the lists, libraries, pages and content types to see if something is named the same. You can then either change the name of it, or the page you're creating, or delete it.
