Hi:

I've been working with the old version of sharepoint, there I work with one template that has some Content Placeholders (the top zone, the middle left zone, the middle right zone and the and the bottom zone). Now I have to work with sharepoint 2007, I have 2 portals but the templates I have only uses the middle left and right zone.

I've read that I can change the master page, but when I click on Site settings/Master pages I have nothing to change it. Can anybody help me Im new with this.

Regards

Raq



Re: SharePoint - Design and Customization Change the master page

SharePointing

in WSS3.0, there is no built in functioality to switch the master pages (but there is a utility on CodePlex that I have used.. It's not the prettiest but it works :-)

In MOSS there is a feature for selecting the masterpage for the site , etc...

Hope that helps,

Thanks.

Do you think that would be easier if I install Sharepoint Designer

And another question, I've enabled a feature called 'Office SharePoint Server Standard Site Collection features' and then another named 'Office SharePoint Server Publishing', now I have more tools in site settings what does this mean

Regards.

You may want to begin with the Microsoft documentation.

Good find (the documentation) I had assumed that he had read that :-)

I was pointing out the fact that unless you edit the one for the site (default.master) then you can't change the master. If you want to have 5 different master pages available to use in various sections of your site, then you need some additional functionality as defined above (unless I am missing something )

I don't think you are missing anything, it just sounded like he was in need of some basic info, hopefully the link will be helpful. But thanks for the Codeplex link, I may need that later :)
