    Thanks Recardo for giving information on wonderful tools.

    It’s simply excellent. I installed What’s New Web Part. In Production Server I activated that one. But it’s going to the web part maintanance page (Error Message in my site). And finally I deleted that webpart from my site.

    Can you give me any suggestion. I will post this one to codeplex also. But If you have any suggestions please post.
