Customize SharePoint Team Site Home Page

Hi All,
As part of most of the client requirements we need to customize the home page of the SharePoint team site. e.g Removing left hand quick launch, hiding header etc.
Here are some samples you can use to customize the home page. You need to add a Content Editor Web Part on the home page and make it invisible by unchecking the visible attribute.

1. Hiding Left Hand Quick Launch

2. Hiding the Page Title (Home) and showing the site title in bold and white color

3. Changing the background color of the title area frame

As you would have noticed that i have used the css classes used by SharePoint and overridden them. For a complete list of stylesheet classes refer:
Most of the classes are used both in SharePoint 2003 and 2007 version.

Hope this will help.
For any other issue write to us at

Is there any way you can show multiple quick launches within the same Site , i.e. different quick launch on different pages ?

Hi Sandeep,

By default sharepoint is not providing any such feature out of the box.

so if you want to archive this kind of feature then that has to be custom one. and you can fetch url and generate your own custom quick launch.

but be careful with performance issue.
