Adding a web part (text box) to a SharePoint subsite

Ok, I'm embarrassed to post this under my real account but I'm struggling to find an answer here. I want to create a SP webpart that acts simply as a free text field with rich text for embedded URL.

Walk me through this, I'm on the SP site now, I select <Edit Page> ... then <Add a Web Part> and I'm provided a list of Categories/Web Parts but I'm just not seeing a way to add a text box.

I think this is SP 2010 (but it might be 2007). SP site created through Project Server. It might be a permissions/restrictions thing.

I haven't done anything with the dumb SharePoint front end in a long time. Does this help? http://office.microsoft.com/en-us...61128.aspx. It says you have to expand the list and it should have textbox in there: At the bottom of the task pane, click Show All Lists. Under Lists, click Text Box. Specify the information about the list, and then click Create.

Make sure you are in the developer/admin group.

Yea, it must be permissions-related. I can't see an option to add a Text Box to a zone.

Thanks for your thoughts nod
