I am taking over for a outsourced team that I have no contact with. I want to replicate something that they have already done but I cannot figure out how they did it. I want to take an existing VF page and insert it into a subsection of an Account Page. The 'associated contacts' section of the picture is the custom VF page that the other team embedded. I want to do this in another section below it. Any help on where to start? I have looked into the 'edit layout' and 'customize page' buttons but there doesn't seem to be a way to import a new VF page. See attached picture.

Custom Contacts Section

Make sure that page, that you want to add is using standartController of you object:

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity" id="pg"> or
<apex:page standardController="Account" extensions="yourCustomExtension">

Then go layout -> edit -> visualforce section -> add where you want -> save:

HOC is name of mine page

enter image description here

  • hum when I change it to standardController I am getting an error message "viewAllActivityNotesOnAccount does not exist" This is my controller name...

  • I should add that I know the controller does exist and it was working fine until I changed it to a standardController

  • How big is your page and extension? Can you share it or at least first line from page Commented Jul 13, 2016 at 21:12
  • the controller is 207 lines and the vf is 50 lines. The first line from the VF page is: <apex:page standardController="viewAllActivityNotesOnAccount"> <style> .container { overflow:auto; align:bottom; width:1550px; } </style> <apex:form > ...... and my class is: public class viewAllActivityNotesOnAccount {.....
