Webpart Maintenance Page

I was trying to open and edit a page (home page) from Sharepoint Designer 2010 but was presented with this error (see image).

I have never had this error before. After some research, I was luck to find the solution, although I didn’t spend too much time learning how and why this happened. To sum up, Something is wrong with a web part on the page that you’re trying to edit and you have to figure out a wey to remove the web part.

Solution: In IE, open the page and append ?contents=1 to the end of the URL. You will see a “Web Part Maintenance” page. On the page you will see a list of web part items. Remove (delete) all the itesm that you see has “Error” in it.

Then try again with Sharepoint Designer 2010 and you should be able to edit the page.
