Default Chapter 4 - pg 156 - master page...

Hey all... If anyone is listening...

I cannot for the life of me locate the Master Page settings in the "Look And Feel" section (see step 13). Any one have any ideas. As a hint, I also could not locate the "Publish Major Version" on the check in/out option.

I left my book at home - I'll check later tonight.

From my memory, you need to have major versioning turned on for the site - mine wasn't set as default. If you have the proper roles as a user, this should help:

Hi All

Just got to this part of the book.

I have managed to turn major versioning on for the site i.e.

1.Open Site Settings.
2.Open the Master Page Gallery.
3.Click on Settings/ Document Library Settings.
4.Open versioning settings and check "Require documents to be checked out..." and also set major version settings.

But still:
- cannot locate the "Publish Major Version" on the check in/out option
- cannot locate the Master Page settings in the "Look And Feel" section

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

I believe I"ve found the solution to these two problems.

For the issue of not seeing the figure 4-16 window, Basically the master page library seems to be automatically set up to publish major versions and not allow minor versions. From a certain point of you, you don't need to do anything because it's already on the option "Publish a major version." But if you want to see this window anyway, go to the master page library, click 'List Settings' in the Ribbon, then find the versioning options and select "Allow major and minor version." Now the window will pop up as indicated in the book.

For the second problem of the Master Page link not showing up in "Look and Feel", you need to activate the publishing feature. Go to Site Actions > Site Settings. Under the Site Actions section (under Look and Feel), find the 'manage site features' link, and look for the "SharePoint Server Publishing." Activate this Feature, and then go back to the Site Settings Page, and look at the Look and Feel Section. There should be a link for Master Page.
