Customizing the Server Ribbon
Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2010
When customizing the Server ribbon, you can add, replace, and remove controls, groups, and tabs. Customizations to the ribbon are defined by using Server ribbon XML in a Feature and can be deployed in a solution package (.wsp file). Ribbon customizations can be scoped to a particular list type by using the RegistrationId and RegistrationType attributes. Customizations can also be scoped to a site or to a particular web by using the Scope attribute in the Feature.xml file.
