I have defined a new master page and set it as default for the main site. Any time I create a new subsite it does not apply the new master page and defaults back to the default.master. The Site Master Page Settings shows this error.

The site master page setting currently applied to this site is invalid. Please select a new master page and apply it
The system master page setting currently applied to this site is invalid. Please select a new master page and apply it.

Now if I select "Inherit site master page from parent of this site" and "Inherit system master page" and click ok the site will use the new master page and everything is fine. There is only one modification to the master page that was done so I know the master page isn't invalid. Does anyone know the answer other than recreating the new master page.

Hi guys,

Is there a solution to this issue I am having the same problem. The top level site in the site collection is using a copy of the default.master with a custom name. Nothing else has been changed on the master page, so I have a company.master page set on the top site which is an exact copy of the default.master.

I went into site settings and selected "Master page" under "Look and Feel". Once on the site master page I selected my company.master page and selected the check box "Reset all subsites to inherit this Site Master Page setting".

This worked fine, all the sites in the site collection now have the company.master page applied. When I create a new site within the site collection the new site is not applying the new master, ie it is not inheriting the setting correctly. If I go into the site settings "Site Master Page Settings" I get the following two errors;

The site master page setting currently applied to this site is invalid. Please select a new master page and apply it.

The system master page setting currently applied to this site is invalid. Please select a new master page and apply it.

Any help appreciated,

Grant.

I think I'm following you right. Have you tried exporting one of your sites that are using the correct masterpage and using it to create new sites.

Hi Tom,

I have not exported the sites, but you have given me an idea. I will look in the current site templates and see if I can change the master page there.

I will let you know how I go.

Thanks mate,

Grant.

Not yet,

I tried changing the current site template aspx files. Inside the aspx files there is a statement with default.master in it, so I changed default.master to company.master, all this did was completely break SharePoint. I changed it back and SharePoint was back up and running, but no solution yet.

Anyone in Microsoft have an answer Looks like an answer to this question could help your customers and make them happy customers!

Regards,

Grant.

We are experiencing the same issue here. Having to manually reassociate a master page to a new site is not something we want end users to have to know about.

If anyone has a solution, please let us know...

I'm having the exact same problem too.

I've tried it with both a custom master (mycompany.master) or by changing default.master. Both cause the same problem - I get those error messages after creating a new site.

Make sure you have Approved/Published the Master Page you are trying to use.
That is the only time I have come up with that error.

I've having the problem regardless of the master page i have choosen in the top level site. I've tried it with different master pages, and i've made sure they are published and approved.

I only get the error when creating collaboration sites, but not for publishing sites. Any ideas

I still have not found a resolution for this problem guys.

I made sure the new master page was published after I made it.

I imagine that if I made new site templates it would work if the new sites were made with the new templates, but the defaults are good enough for the company. Seems a bit silly to save a copy of every site template just to set the master page.

Help!

I have a support call in to Microsoft about it. I am awaiting a callback. If they give me a resolution, I will post it here.

I exchanged some e-mails with an engineer at MS after I called in the case and he seems to think it is actually an issue with Sharepoint Designer, not Sharepoint server itself.
