Assigning your Master Page to your site

Once, we have built the Master Pages we need to assign the Master Page to our site. This can be achieved as follows:

Step 1: On you site, click Site Actions->Site Settings->Modify All Site Settings.

Figure 5

Step 2: When the site Settings Window displays, Click on the Master Page under Look and Feel

Figure 6

Step 3: Select the Master Page from the drop down list.

Figure 7

Step 4: Most likely you will try to create your own SHB file to replace the look and feel of some of the CSS class dependent objects. For example, you might want to have a different look and feel for the Web Parts header or may be would like to change the fonts on links. For this purpose you might decide to assign a different CSS file. You can assign it on the same Site Master Page assignment page.

Figure 8

If you have specified a CSS file and have not handled a style in your CSS file then SharePoint will pick the default style assigned to the control. I will be writing an article about the various CSS styles and what they are used for.

Title: Any way to use Cascading Master pages

Is there a way to use Cascading Master pages? The scenario i have is - the root site will have the default master page, the sub site should be able to use their own Master page. I don't want to copy all the contents from the default Master Page and copy it into the Sub site's master page and then add the new stuff. Rather i want to leave the common stuff in the default master page and create the Sub Site master page with new stuff only. And when a page from the Sub site is rendered it uses the combination of two master pages.
Is this possible??

But this works only for MOSS 2007, for wss v3 what do you have to do to create/add a new Master Page?

For wss v3 in the Site Settings you don't have "Master Page" voice in the "Look and Feel" menù (as explained in the "Assigning your Master Page to your site" section of this article...)

you mentioned in the part about adding the sitemap provider to the web.config file...
siteMapFile="Menu.sitemap"

this makes sense, the only thing I am wondering is
where would I drop my sitemap file at?

Thanks for the excellent resource,

Klibey

Hi,
I think it's about master pages for WSS and MOSS (because you show us snapshots of moss publishing sites)
