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?

Master Page and table layout

Hi, i am in the process to learn create master page using HTML table layout.I find out many resources online that use table to design their master page layout.I have 1 thing that i do not undestand:all of them using heigh= n pixel to control their footer, header, content  and navigation menu.My concern is that by doing so, the master page is fixed to only particular resolution only.In future there might be higher resolution available, the master page design need to be changed from time to time which is considered not so good programmer.OR in future, the when site need to have something like "Best view in resolution 1024 x 768", somethign like that...Is there any other way not to do so? Are they doing their master page correctly?

Master Page Migration from SP 2007 - Perplexed

With the introduction of ribbon comes the complexity/confusion. I have a simple master page in SP 2007 which is based on a 3-column layout with a banner on top. Now, if I want to migrate this master page, looks like it is mandatory that I include the ribbon. What if I do not want to include ribbon? I need a simple 3-column layout. I am getting an error if I do not include the ribbon. Can I hide the ribbon control?

Referencing a ghosted master page in unghosted page layout

Hello All, I am developing a publishing portal in MOSS 2007 environment. I am employing wspbuilder to deploy my master pages, page layouts and site contents in the publishing site. I would like to know whether referencing a ghosted master page(residing in the 12 hive) in an unghosted page layout(residing in the content database) would be efficient. I read in some articles that fetching the pages from file system increases the throughput when compared to that of hitting the content database. Is it advisory to do it this way? Any insights on this would be of great useRegards, Raghuraman.V CALAMITY IS THE TOUCHSTONE OF A BRAVE MIND

What the best way to achieve this layout - nested master page or iframes


Hi Guys

Im developing an admin section for a cms tool and in previous tools i used  a master page, which then had a page called verified.aspx. this contained a menu control and then dependant on which menu item they selected loaded a user control into a multiview control

This works fine accept for some small annoying post back issues (not refreshing data and also the time taken to load the large amount of controls)

For this solution i was looking to make it as quick and light weight as possible

I have a master page with 2 content placeholders. Im my verified page (which uses the master), i have a nav menu on the left. Dependant on the item selected fro the nav menu on the left, id like to poplute the content placeholders content with an aspx page (which contains a user control) or just an apsx page

ive seen a couple of articles suggesting iframe, and a couple suggesting nested master pages but i dont believe i can get this to work with nester masters, if somone has some code  and an exmaple of how to achieve this i would be very grateful

Thanks in advance for any help and support

MOSS 2007 - Add "Email Page to Friend" feature to Actions menu or to site master page.


My Communications Director would like us to add an "Email this Page to a Friend" type of feature to our SharePoint 2007 Intranet.  They would ideally like to have this feature available on every page.  But I was thinking that even if we could add this item to the List Actions menu it would suffice.  Does anyone know of a webpart that will do this or can offer some custom code and instructions on how to make this happen?

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?
