Master Page not being used by subsites

  Asked By: Keaton    Date: Aug 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1321

I have edited the my master page and the core.css file to match my
company's branding. On the opening page of my site these changes are
displaying but on any other part of my site the bottom half of the page
maintains the OOB branding. All sites are set to use the default
master page. What can I do to rectify this? Is there some possibility
that the other pages on my site are using a different style sheet file?

Most folks will tell you that you should never modify the default
masterpage and the core.css file.

Instead, you should make a COPY Of these, and then use that copy of
the files. The reason being is that there is no guarantee that a
future Service Pack might over-right the default masterpage and css
file thereby destroying the work you did.

Copy them and then just append to them.

I should note that the OWS files are now called CORE and there is a fifth
solution that WSS v3 now allows in the form of an HTTP Module.
