Abstract: Do you need to know the URL for the webpart maintenance page?

Often your web part page starts behaving strangely or giving you errors due to some buggy script or web part. This sometimes even stops you to open page in edit mode because of Java Script errors.

Don’t worry, there is a very simple way to delete those web parts. Just append ?contents=1 at the end of the URL of respective page and SharePoint will open the Web Part Maintenance Page for it.

For example, if the URL of the problem page is http://SharePoint210/Test/default.aspx

Then the webpart maintenance page URL will be http://SharePoint210/Test/default.aspx?contents=1

Very handy when migrating MOSS2007 to SharePoint 2010 and the client is telling you there is any customization only to find out that a custom webpart is crashing the site collection. Doh!
