in the sharepoint site do this:

1.Site actions
2. Edit in Sharepoint designer
3. in the left pane, choose master pages
4. right click on the master page you want to work with and choose "check Out" (you can check it back in but version cant be changed while it is checked in)
5. click the master page
6. click "manage all file properties in the browser
7. when browser has loaded, click "edit item"
8. choose version, save, close browser
9. right click master page and check it back in

theres propably another easier way of doing this, and propably several harder, but this worked for me

Thumbs down

Copying and pasting the Wrox_Master_Page.master didn't work for me either.

Got this error message:

Code:
Cannot find ContentPlaceHolder 'PlaceHolderCalendarNavigator' in the master page '~masterurl/default.master', verify content control's ContentPlaceHolderID attribute in the content page.
Is it really that hard for the writers of these books to actually try these simple excercises in the final product ?

Cool Maybe this'll help somebody

minimal.master, from the book, works with the Collaboration > Blank site template.

Another problem sees to be that the book was written using a 'used' version of Sharepoint that has had apps and other development work done under it - most of the readers of this book have a brand new install of Sharepoint. System settings should have been posted for the server so users could match the development environment as closely as possible.

Angry Yep setting SharePoint_2010_Master.master crashes site

Hi

Has anyone found a definitive workaround for this issue other than resetting the default masterpage to v4.master.

Code:
Cannot find ContentPlaceHolder 'PlaceHolderPageTitle' in the master page '~masterurl/default.master', verify content control's ContentPlaceHolderID attribute in the content page. 
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. 

Exception Details: System.Web.HttpException: Cannot find ContentPlaceHolder 'PlaceHolderPageTitle' in the master page '~masterurl/default.master', verify content control's ContentPlaceHolderID attribute in the content page.
I have not tried _starter_foundation.aspx from http://startermasterpages.codeplex.com yet which I guess will be my next step. I noticed a post that mentions setting the version in the browser properties - has anyone tried this.

I do like the book but I have found quite a few issues with the samples - I am not sure what dev Env Steve Fox is using but I am using the Sharepoint Info worker evals 2010-7a and 2010-7b.

One thing to remember is that Sharepoint 2010 doesn't support 4.0 .Net.

Default SharePoint_2010_Master.master crash

Just got to this part of the book - read all these posts but getting mixed messages.

I have copied and replaced code from the Wrox_Master_Page.master and as indicated by some of the earlier post, I am also getting the same problem (i.e Cannot find ContentPlaceHolder 'PlaceHolderPageTitle' in the master .......)

So can someone spell out a definitive workaround?

I have not tried _starter_foundation.aspx from http://startermasterpages.codeplex.com yet.

I have also not tried v4.master (incidentally where is v4.master)

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

i dont see why u need to find the contentplaceholder for this exercise

"I have also not tried v4.master (incidentally where is v4.master)"

i think i posted a step by step to change version, but if u start the SP designer, in the left side u should see "masters pages" or something similar, u should see v4.master in that list, otherwise u have done something very different from the instructions from the beginning i think.. hope this helps :)
