How To Use a Specific Sites' Master Page for my custom asp.net application

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I have a custom application that I migrated to sharepoint (compiling into single DLL and creating a fodler for it in the layouts folder in 12 hive) Currently, I am using ~/_layouts/application.master as my masterpage for the custom application. However, i would like to use a certain site's master page for my application versus the default one. For instance, I would like to use the master page from this sub site www.maindomain/sites/subsite/ Thanks for your help.

Sharepoint 2007 - Wiki site - New Pages Not Inheriting Custom Master Page

  

I am working on a SP site (MOSS not WSS) which is heavily customised away from the OOTB layout. I need to create a Wiki site, which was going well - I've created a master page which displays the miniconsole (this was not visible with our customised layout), and made it the default master page for the site. This has been applied to the two standard pages that come with the Wiki site, however when a new page is created, it seems to inherit the default.master, rather than my custom master page - thus not showing the miniconsole.

When I have created a new page, I am able to use SharePoint Designer to attach my custom master page to it, which works perfectly, however this will not be a viable option going forward as end-users create their new wiki pages.

How can I get the new pages to inherit my master page when they are created?

Unable to create columns in document library after applying custom master page to site

  
Hi, I have applied a custom master page to a site.There is a document library in it. I am unable to add columns in it or change the default view.Nothing happens when I click on OK butoon after making my changes. However the columns are created/default view is changed when I apply the default master page. Guess I am missing some TagPrefix or sharepoint control on master page.I had solved this problem earlier in this way but don't remeber it now. Can anyone help?

Retracting feature which deployed custom master page delete default.master

  
Hi, I am not sure if solution to this issue is already posted? I have my feature which copy my custom.master which is copy of default.master from hive to master page gallery of web. The problem is that everything works fine with feature activate and deactivate but when I retract the solution from the server. All pages except site settings page stop working saying "file not found". I redeploy the solution, it starts working again. Looks like the retract is deleting default.master as well? I have this issue in 2010 as well. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Kashish

Retract custom master page feature and all site pages stop working

  
There is a requirement to apply custom branding on personal sites in a SP 2010 project. For this I have created a feature which uploads and applies the custom master page on creation of any new personal sites.   I have stapled this feature (using feature stapling concept) to the “SPSPERS” (personal site) site definition. The custom master page is displayed on the creation of new personal sites. On feature deactivation, I am looping through all the personal sites (as the feature is deployed on a team site) and pointing the master URL back to v4.master. But when I retract the solution and browse to the personal site, I am getting a “404 File not found” error.  But am able to view the settings page by typing the URL.   I activated the publishing features and looked at the master page applied to the personal site. It was pointing to v4.master.   Any help on this is appreciated. Regards, Neha

Hi, I created a publication site and in that site i created pages with specifique metadata (using a pagelayout with a custom content type)0. My webpart is getting data from those pages and displaying it. My webpart works on every page except on the "my profile" page(overview tab).

Forms Based Authentication - problem with custom master page and login page

  

Hi,

I have successfully enabled and set up FBA (Forms Based Authentication) on my SharePoint 2010 Foundation server. The thing is that I need to customize the look and feel of the login page. I have successfully customized the page (and master page) to look the way I want, however, when I try to log in, I get the following error/message on the page:
"Forms Based Authentication on classic Web applications has been deprecated".

What I've done:
Made copies of /_layouts/simple.master and /_layouts/login.aspx and renamed the copies. The markup in the master page is MUCH simpler than the original, but I've kept all the ContentPlaceholders that I don't use (most of them) in a hidden <asp:Panel at the bottom of the page.

I've changed the web.config file:
<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="/_layouts/loginCustom.aspx" />
</authentication>

So, I'm not getting any errors on the page until I try to log in. When I use the default settings (login.aspx and simple.master) it works just fine (but damn that page looks ugly!).

Does anyone know what I might be missing?

Update: I believe the reason it doesn't work is because my custom login aspx is not part of the Claims Based Web Application (because it's sitting

What's the "right" way to create a site template and inherit a custom master page?

  

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in 2007 whatever masterpage you had selected was saved in the site template and was re-created when a new site was created from said template.

It occurs to me that it's different in 2010.

Custom master pages from a site template aren't inherited and they don't keep the specified value when you ask it to before creating the template itself.

So, what's the "correct" way?  What's the difference in making a site template using a blank site or publishing site?

Here I thought I'd be able to make a site template and move on to my next project.

Thanks in advance!

Virtual path provider to have custom path tokens in master page references

  

I managed to port Asp.net MVC to run in a Sharepoint site (only inside a particular folder not everywhere) by:

  1. Writing an IHttpModule that I use to register routes, areas, view engine and virtual path provider inside the Init method, that is called only once per application life hence it works like an application_start event
  2. Writing a custom URL routing module that only performs routing for a particular subfolder path, all other paths are ignored, so everything else works just as it does and is completely handled by sharepoint
  3. Writing a custom view engine that defines different view/master paths related to the subfolder where MVC is running
  4. Writing a costom virtual path provider that should allow me to reference masterpages based on my configured subfolder where MVC is running.
  5. Adding a virtual folder (without assigning it an application) to my Sharepoint's site, so my app will be running as part of Sharepoint site and not as a separate application
  6. Customizing Sharepoint site's config to add my MVC application's configuration, adding MVC assemblies to compilation section, adding namespaces to <pages> element so I my view will see Html helpers, and adding two modules (my intialization module that registers routes etc) and subfolder routing module.

But I would like to accomplich

Custom site definition with embeded master page

  

Hello All,
I am creating a custom site definition, which is based on STS site definition ( so my site is also a team site, just with the difference of name ). For that I have created a SharePoint 2010 site definition project in VS 2010. It works fine.

Now what I want to do is to create a custom master for this site definition. And I want to keep this master page in same project.  Can someone tell me how to do it ?

Note : I am adding a module to this project ( which adds a feature to the project, when there was no module, there was no feature in the project ). Next I am referring that feature in one.xml file under configuration->site feature node. I do not want to have a feature, I want it to be part of site definition. But can I embed in such way that every time a site is created based on my site definition, master page also get deployed to root site of site collection
