How to create a reusable Site Logo Web Part

A customer asked tonight, how to take an existing Content Editor Web Part on a dashboard and repeat it elsewhere with minimal effort. It was a simple web part. A logo, linked to a website. While you might avoid the need by creating sites based on templates, the sub sites had already been created. So, the solution instead was to save (export) the web part as a DWP file. Then simply import it into the web part library. Finally, just then add it where necessary as a web part, while it is in the web part gallery. Simple and nothing new to seasoned Pro’s … but a common request with a simple demonstration.

The following (brief) screen cast walks you through the steps (it assumes you have your web part all tuned up the way you like it already).
