Shane, what I am trying to figure out is how to display some fields that the users will fill in and then have the owners fill out the other remaining fields. Is it possible to set permission on a column so only certain users can fill out the remaining fields later on.

Hi Shane, I want to add a column in a list which allows me to browse for a document. Is that possible? Hope to hear from you soon. Bye.

Karl, A couple of things - the "administration" pages hold on to the default look/feel of SharePoint due to "all sites admin pages" referencing a global set of style-sheets/master pages (application.master). I'm not 100% sure of what you need to accomplish but I would think it would be "much" more beneficial and reusable if you created a page layout based on your content type - that way you can customize the look/feel of that page layout and create any number of pages based on it. I would look more closely at page layouts + content types. If that has no bearing on what you are after then the editform.aspx page is still in the forms directory of your web/site. Just keep in mind it references a master page to get the "chrome" now. I hope that helps - Shane

I have created a content type in SPS 2007. How can I edit the editform.aspx for that content type? I want to rearrange the form fields differently for this content type.

PS: I wasn't being literal about the "About Us" page. I was just tryiing to explain content types it in context with a regular website. If you had a mainpage and a subpage layout like most websites, you would make 2 content types,adding whatever columns you wish. Depending on what WCM capable areas you want and what content bits you want, you can create any number of content types and layout pages.

Shane, I really like your work for the community! Some small additions to your post in my point of view. I think that besides the planning of content type and columns it is also important to mention the existence of base columns and how to use them in your own favor. Then for the example, personally I think that an about us page isn't that unique that it should deserve it's own content type, after all it doesn't have any more unique properties then any other page with an title and an image. Personally I use the example of a page where a vacancy is shown, vacancies have more unique attributes to show the use of columns imho. just my €0.02. Keep up the good work!
