Master Page Inheritance 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have modified the v4.master masterpage in SharePoint 2010 on my site. When I create a new site under this site (subsite) it does not inherit the changes. I see the changes on the top site but not the subsite. Does 2010 behave different that 2007? In 2007 you had not problem telling subsites to inherit.

How override inheritance from Default.Master page? How override default.master function acting on ju


 There is this one function that i can't remove from the Default.master page because other forms in the project use it and are happy to inherit from it. But in one form it messes up the layout as it injects a line below every text box to tell the user how many characters he's typed and how near the 1000 char limit he is. For this form we dont' need or want that on every asp:textbox. How can i keep the rest of the inheritance from Default.Master but exclude or avoid or override this function acting on textbox controls in this one form?

Here's the function as given in the default.master page, fyi:


function() {var countdown = {function() {//alert($(countdown.obj).attr('id'));

countdown.remaining = countdown.max - $(countdown.obj).val().length; 

$(countdown.obj).val($(countdown.obj).val().substring(0, countdown.max));

countdown.remaining = 0;

How to change master page in sharepoint 2010?

Hi All:

We've just got the sharepoint2010 installed to test it, like it so far, but many options that we were ablet o find quickly are now at different places, so I might be asking something very simple here that I just didn't see, could anyone point out for me where do I go to change master page in sharepoint 2010? it used to be under site settings -> looks and feels, but there is not this option under looks and feels in 2010, all i see about master pages is a gallery of what master pages there are. Thanks in advance.

SharePoint 2010 Master page feature stapling - not sure where to put files


I have successfully added a branding feature to my 2010 environment that activates on install. Just as expected, it does not work for subsite creation. I have seen a number of articles/blog posts on how to create a feature stapler for SP2007. However, I am having a hard time finding a working solution for SP2010 using VS2010.

I have a couple of questions that I hope someone can point me in the right direction on:

1. In my project I have a branding feature, this contains the EventReceiver that applies the change. Can I have a second feature here that does the stapling or does it need to be in a completely seperate project?

2. Everything I read points to two files feature.xml and elements.xml, are both of those supposed to be under Features in Solution Explorer or are they located somewhere else or do they need to be create. If they need to be created, where do they belong?

3. In the EventReceiver.cs file there is a GUID that was automatically generated. Is this the GUID referenced in the feature.xml?

Hopefully with these questions answered I can move forward and find a solution to getting the stapler working.




Is there a site page default.master in SharePoint Server 2010??



I inserted a few lines of code on the wkpstd.aspx template to "show" the document library properties on each wiki page within each wiki page library. This is working fine, except that the property Document ID
is showing up on site pages as well.  I checked Moss 2007 and I foumd that there is a bpcf.aspx default page that is used to create a basic page. Is there a separate template or master page for the site pages within 2010 that i can modify?

Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thanks.


Set as default master page in Sharepoint Designer 2010 does not change pages at all


I make a copy of V4.masterpage ,rename it as myv4.masterpage, and modify it .

then right-click myv4.masterpage and choose 'set as default masterpage'.

but when i open my site, the pages don't change, and create a new page,it still the old look.


Shouldn't it do that?
