"The site master page setting currently applied to this site is invalid"

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am creating a site template that is a copy of Moss STS site template.

    To apply a custom master page, I changed the ONET.xml file to set the “MasterUrl = custom.master” and “CustomMasterUrl = custom.master”.

    My custom.master file is provisioned by a feature that is referenced in my ONET.xml file.

    Everything gone right when I create a new site from my site template, my site appear with the correct master page.

    My problem appears when I go to site settings and Master page (in the look and feel column). I then have the following 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.

     

    I saw a Microsoft bug report concerning this message (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936908) but my problem is a bit different:

    -          My site is not a subsite, but a top-level site.

    -          The publishing feature is activated on my site, but the Microsoft workaround does not work for me.

    Does anybody have an idea to solve this???

    Yann
